All About Weight Loss Surgery!

Obesity and low self esteem leading to depression because of it are problems that are increasing in many people around India in young population. Besides leading to an appearance that is less than ideal, it can also lead to severe health problems like diabetes, polycystic ovarian disease(pcod), joint pains, heart disease,and more. While there are many ways to combat being overweight with the help of exercise, a proper diet and even medication, when they don’t work and in very severe cases of obesity; they can also be fixed with a surgical process known as Bariatric Surgery

So, here's everything you need to know about it.

-  Affecting the Digestive Process: As per the normal digestive process, the food moves into the digestive tract while its nutrients get collected with the help of a well functioning system that includes digestive juices and enzymes. This food moves through the digestive tract, passing through the oesophagus, before it goes down into the stomach where it meets the strong digestive acids which break it down, and then it enters the small intestine. While the stomach can hold three pints of food at a time, there is a chance that some of this food may not get properly digested in the small intestine. In this case, the food enters the large intestine. Now, Bariatric Surgery helps in restricting the amount of food that a person can have and hold in the first place.

-  The Process: This surgical procedure may be carried out by cutting the part of stomach and removing a portion of the same. This is called as Sleeve surgery. When this procedure also re routes the small intestine into the gastric pouch or the small stomach pouch its called as gastric bypass. This process is always done with laparoscopic route where a few small incisions will be used to insert a tiny camera and instruments for the process.

-  Ideal Candidates: If your BMI or body mass index is more than 37, then you can opt for this kind of surgery, as mere dieting and exercising will not help you in your weight loss endeavour. This surgery can also help in preventing the onset of type 2 diabetes mellitus. The patient also has to have reached the normal adult height in order to qualify for this surgery. For obese people with diseases like diabetes, thyroid, PCOD, joint pains, backache the BMI cut off is 32.5

Once you undergo the surgery, it is important to commit to a proper diet with less food intake and proper exercise besides taking regular micro nutrient supplements on a lifelong basis.

Sleeve Gastrectomy Treatment!

Sleeve Gastrectomy Treatment!

What is sleeve gastrectomy treatment?

Sleeve gastrectomy treatment also known as a vertical sleeve gastrectomy is a type of weight loss surgery. This kind of operation is generally performed laparoscopically i.e. insertion of small instruments inside the upper abdomen, through small incisions. In a sleeve gastrectomy operation, the surgeon removes around 80% of the stomach, leaving behind a tube-shaped abdomen in the shape and size of a banana.

How does a sleeve gastrectomy procedure work?

Weight loss can sometimes take a toll on you physically as well as mentally. If exercise or a healthy diet does not yield any results for you, then you can go for a sleeve gastrectomy surgery.
In order to understand how a sleeve gastrectomy works, you will need to understand the procedure in a comprehensive manner.

• Prior to the operation

Once you are in the operation theatre, the doctor will administer general anaesthesia to put to to sleep, before beginning with the procedure.

• During the operation

The surgeon will perform certain sleeve gastrectomy procedures by making open and large incisions in the stomach. Usually, this procedure is done laparoscopically using several small incisions. He/she will then insert small instruments in the abdomen. After this, the surgeon creates a thin sleeve by getting rid of the curved and large part of the abdomen and by stapling the stomach in a vertical manner. A sleeve gastrectomy surgery normally takes one to two hours at most to perform.

• After the operation

Once you are done with your sleeve gastrectomy surgery, your diet must be non-carbonated and sugar-free liquids for the initial 7 days. After 7 days, you can start having pureed foods for the next 3 weeks. Gradually you can start increasing your meal portion and eat normal foods within 4 weeks of your surgery.

Any surgery for that matter can seem scary, but it does not necessarily have to be. In order to ensure zero to minimum risks, make sure that you choose the right doctor and the hospital to get your surgery done.

4 Things You Should Know About Bariatric Surgery!

Obesity and a shapeless body are problems that plague many people around the world. Besides leading to an appearance that is less than ideal, it can also lead to severe health problems include heart failure, heart diseases, diabetes and more.

6 Reasons Losing Weight Is Easier In Summers!

6 Reasons Losing Weight Is Easier In Summers!

Summer is the best season to lose weight. It's warm outside and you can indulge in light aerobic exercises like swimming and walking at your will. Choose from nature’s basket of healthy, low-fat and low-calorie summer fruits and vegetables to lose weight easily. So when the hunger bug strikes, you can snack on low carb foods, which help you lose weight fast.

Still not convinced? Read on to understand why you should plan to chuck the extra kilos during summers.

  1. Hot summer weather suppresses your appetite: Sunlight may help weight loss in summer season by increasing serotonin levels. That’s one way doctors treat the depression of seasonal affective disorder. Increased levels of serotonin reduce some people’s need to eat, especially if the cravings are for comfort foods. In a 2013 study, people who worked out in a hot environment (86° F) ate less afterward than those who exercised in a cooler setting (50° F). This suggests that sweltering temperatures during summer may, in fact, reduce your desire to eat—even after you’ve done a tough workout.
  2. Its easier to eat better when it’s scorching hot outside: It’s easier to eat better in summer because there’s an abundance of seasonal, fat-burning foods that are relatively low-priced. Summer foods such as Lady finger (an important source of vitamin B6 and folic acid), cucumbers (a good source of silica, which is good for the skin), peaches, (a good source of fiber), asparagus and broccoli (which are full of hunger-satisfying protein), are all readily available. These foods not only promote a healthy digestive tract but are a key for weight loss in summers. Hence include these local produce in your weight loss diet plan.
  3. Choice of delicious low-carb fruits and veggies: Summer comes with an abundance of seasonal, nutritious and fat-burning fruits and vegetables like cucumbers, peaches, asparagus, broccoli and water melon to name a few. Health professionals say that these low-calorie food items should make up about 50% of your diet, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. If you make half of your plate or half of all your meals a fruit or a vegetable, you straightaway promote weight loss as both fruits and vegetables are naturally very low in calories and contain loads of water. Eating limited amounts of whole grains and having more lean proteins in the form of fish, eggs and chicken in moderation, helps you cut down on high calorie foods and fastens weight loss. A low carb diet has been shown to help people lose more weight in a shorter period of time as compared to low-calorie or low-fat diets; so concentrate on low carb foods.
  4. Water becomes ultra-attractive: In summers, we tend to drink more water than any other season and this wonder drink is a big friend of weight loss. Studies show that drinking water before meals helps you to lose weight as it makes you feel full.
  5. Mood swings are out of picture in summers: We know women and men both binge eat when they are low or depressed. Studies have shown that 27% people with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) binge eat during winters. Almost 90% of these have severe cravings for carbs that makes one fat, especially when it’s cold outside. 
  6. Summer makes exercise and weight loss easy: All you have to do is to ensure that you choose indoor exercise programs like indoor gymming, swimming etc. to beat the heat.

Summer is a great time to try and lose weight, but remember to not let yourself go and pile on the kilos during the long winter months.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

What Does “Underweight” Really Mean?

Being underweight is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) below 18.5. This is estimated to be less than the body mass needed to sustain optimal health.

Conversely, over 25 is considered overweight and over 30 is considered obese.

Use this calculator to see where you fit on the BMI scale (opens in new tab).

However, keep in mind that there are many problems with the BMI scale, which only looks at weight and height. It does not take muscle mass into account.

Some people are naturally very skinny but still healthy. Being underweight according to this scale does not necessarily mean that you have a health problem.

Being underweight is about 2-3 times as common among girls and women. In the US, 1% of men and 2.4% of women 20 years and older are underweight (2).

What Are The Health Consequences of Being Underweight?

 

Obesity is currently one of the world’s biggest health problems.

However, being underweight may be just as bad for your health as being obese.

According to one study, being underweight was associated with a 140% greater risk of early death in men, and 100% in women (3).

In this study, obesity was “only” associated with a 50% greater risk of early death, indicating that being underweight may be even worse for your health (3).

Another study found increased risk of early death in underweight men, but not women. This indicates that being underweight may be worse for men (4).

Being underweight can also impair immune function, raise your risk of infections, lead to osteoporosis and fractures, and cause fertility problems (5, 6, 7).

People who are underweight are also much more likely to get sarcopenia (age-related muscle wasting), and may be at greater risk of dementia (8,

Want to Lose Weight? 5 Things You Must Avoid!

Want to Lose Weight? 5 Things You Must Avoid!

If you want to lose weight, you should know that abstaining from certain foods will help you lose weight faster. Although, sometimes you can indulge in certain food items, but most of the time you strictly need to avoid. Avoiding these will enable you to fend off hunger and food cravings, thereby supporting your weight loss program.

Here are the primary food items which you should avoid:

  1. All snacks containing only carbohydratesWhen you consume bread, rice, cakes, dry cereal or crackers alone, your body converts the carbohydrates into simple sugars, sending them into your bloodstream directly. Because of this, your body produces excess insulin. This results in low blood sugar. You are likely to get inclined towards eating sugary food items without any nutritional value.
  2. Frozen meals: For making fresh ingredients last longer in your refrigerator, many food manufacturers add sodium to frozen meals, which serves as a natural preservative. Sodium makes your body retain water, and bloats you up in return. This hampers your efforts for weight loss. When calories worth a whole meal are squeezed into a tiny box, with each bite you take, you will consume a lot of calories.
  3. High fiber snacks: Fiber is important for the body as it keeps the digestive system functioning smoothly, keeping you feel full even if you are avoiding calories. However, around 25 grams of fiber, which is worth one day’s requirement in one snack bar, is harmful for your weight loss target. Fiber intake should be consistent throughout the day for improving your digestive system, and for not causing an upset stomach.
  4. Juice: When you drink juice, you consume all the calories from the fruits without the natural fruit fibers, which are supposed to fill you up. Even 100% fruit juices are empty calories, which lead to high blood sugar. Fructose, the natural fruit sugar, which makes fruit juices taste sweet, tricks the body into gaining weight as the body’s ability to recognize when it is full gets blunted. This may make you eat more and the risk of developing diabetes and insulin resistance becomes more likely.
  5. Artificially sweetened drinks: You should stop having soda and all sweet drinks, which contain zero calories. Mind of some people is wired in such a way that artificial sweeteners enhance their food craving.

Apart from these, you must also avoid alcohol strictly, if you want to lose weight. Alcohol does not support weight loss as it contains empty calories. These do not make you feel full, and do not have any nutritional value. Your judgement regarding your weight loss goals also gets impaired because of alcohol. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
