Bariatric surgery has given many individuals the feeling that they have a second chance at life. After years, even decades, of struggling with obesity, many find relief by turning to this tested and proven weight loss procedure.
The decision to get liposuction, commonly referred to as lipo, can be made for a number of reasons. Some get the procedure after working hard to get to their goal weight, but still need a little help shaping or sculpting an area of their body. Others may get the procedure to help treat medical conditions that cause unwanted build-up of fatty tissue. In any case, there are usually several options for you to discuss with your doctor.
Who would have thought that the way you were born, whether vaginally or by c-section, could affect your weight during adulthood? Recent studies associate cesarean section deliveries with higher body mass index numbers later on in life.
During a woman’s stage of menopause, it’s easier for her to gain unwanted weight and harder for her to get rid of it. Recent studies show that weight loss is possible if women adhere to a strict diet and exercise routine.
It’s big news. In a country constantly plagued by more bad news about our health, obesity rates for preschoolers have dropped by nearly 50%!. No doubt this will mean healthier futures for many of these young children, as the hardest thing is losing the weight once it’s been gained. Need proof? Just ask these children’s parents and grandparents. Adult Americans remain as overweight as ever, and for women over 60 the rate has gone up.
It’s no secret that in Hollywood, thin is always in. While celebrities may claim that their weight loss and svelte physiques are the result of diet and exercise, the truth is, many stars turn to outside resources for extra help. For example, Snooki, star of the popular reality show “Jersey Shore,” was open about her use of the diet pill Zantrex-3, claiming the supplement helped her shed 15 pounds. The Kardashian girls also endorsed slimming pill Quick Trim, saying the pills helped both Kim and Khloe burn off their post-baby weight. And of course, possibly no one has been more active in touting these type of supplements than talk show host and advice guru Oprah Winfrey. But do they really work?
While celebrities love to credit their svelte figures to “yoga” or “hiking with their dog” it’s no secret that the stars often result to extreme dieting to achieve their uber skinny physiques. When it comes to fad diets, celebrities seem to jump on board with nearly anything. Let’s look at some of the most absurd and extreme celebrity weight loss programs that have popped up over the years.
Los Angeles, CA, June 3, 2013 – Trying to lose weight, year after year and without success can be frustrating and depressing; so can spending each summer dealing with the multiple health and self-esteem issues brought up by severe obesity. On the other hand, leading bariatric surgeon Michael Feiz
, M.D., FACS now offers more and better weight loss surgery
options than ever before. From the lap band to the gastric sleeve
and bypass, one of the nation’s top medical doctors now offers weight loss surgery
in locations throughout Southern California. Summer starts officially this June 21st
; there’s no reason to wait another moment before getting started on your new life.
Some say this new tongue patch diet
may be too hard to swallow. A Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Nikolas Chugay, of Chugay Cosmetic surgery Medical Clinic
, recently began surgically sewing a “Miracle Patch” to his patients’ “taste-loving tongue”.
This alternative to extreme weight loss
measures such as the gastric bypass
or lap band surgery
, makes it painful to eat, therefore producing “a means to lose weight never before offered by other surgeons.”
Motivated by his wife and kids, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who once called himself “the healthiest fat guy you’ve ever seen”, disclosed Tuesday he secretly underwent Gastric Banding (Lap Band Surgery)
on February 16, 2013, performed by Dr. George Fielding, head of NYU Medical Center’s Weight Management Program.
While some observers may say his effort to lose weight is motivated by the thoughts of a presidential bid, Christie states, “It’s so much more important than that.”
