Hi, Any natural method for loosing the weight. Without any dieting and all, is it possible to loose the weight.
Is it a Must That You Consider Bariatric Surgery?
Weight loss can be achieved through various means, such as behavior therapy, diet and exercise programs, drugs, etc. However, research has proven that once you are obese then the chances of you either losing substantial weight or managing to keep it off long-term is less than 1%. Hence most obese people yo-yo and almost always regain more weight than they started off with on the rebound with non-surgical therapies. Most drugs for weight loss have been banned in the long term because of side effects.
Cosmetic surgical options like liposuction and tummy tuck or abdominoplasty are again not really weight loss procedures but rather body contouring prospering to give a better shape and cannot achieve long-term weight loss.
Bariatric Surgery today remains the best solution for long-term weight loss for those with morbid obesity.
So when you are you’re extremely obese and have a body mass index (BMI) of 37.5 kg/m2 or more. (BMI or body mass index is a ratio of your weight (kg) / height (m2) ), or your BMI is above 32.5 kg/m2 along with associated health problems like Type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea (a common sleep disorder wherein you snore excessively and experience pauses in breathing or shallow breathing instances while sleeping), high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, osteoarthritis or severe joint pains and have failed to achieve significant weight loss with conservative methods then you are a candidate for Bariatric Surgery.
Weight loss through surgery shouldn’t be looked upon as a shortcut to losing weight. It is a powerful tool to aid you to become healthier, but remember, "with great power comes greater responsibility", because after the surgery you’ll be required to make some lifelong changes to your eating and lifestyle habits to ensure a long, healthy and satisfying life.
Remember this is your second chance at life don’t waste it.
