Dr. Naim from the Lap Band Center is telling his patients and everyone else interested in lap band surgery, that certain steps have to be taken post-surgery to ensure that one stays slim, so that the surgery was not in vain.
Also known as bariatric surgery, lap band surgery is a revolutionary form of weight loss surgery. Patients who undergo bariatric surgery find that they are able to lose weight rapidly and without much effort on their part, unlike others who try to lose weight the conventional way by crash dieting and excessive exercising.
According to Dr. Naim, this is due to what the surgery is and how it is performed. A small incision is made and the lap band is inserted around the top portion of the patient’s stomach, creating a small pouch that will serve as the patient’s stomach. The significant reduction in the patient’s stomach causes one to gain a quicker feeling of satiety, hence eating less, which leads to guaranteed weight loss. According to Dr. Naim, although weight loss is guaranteed, patients need to take the necessary steps to ensure the weight stays off, especially after they have the lap band removed.
Dr. Naim assures patients that lap band surgery guarantees weight loss and a brand new look but he also recommends his patients should practice a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain their new look. At the end of the day, feeling good mentally is just as important as physically looking good. Here are some healthy tips recommended by Dr. Naim.
1. Consume a Healthy Diet
This may be easier said than done, especially over the holidays. Dr. Naim suggests enjoying oneself over the festive season but not to overindulge. On a regular day, regular sized portions of a balanced diet are recommended. Patients are advised to stay away from soda, processed and fatty food such as corn beef and spam. At the end of the day, patients should make a beeline for the fresh produce in the supermarket and to stay away from anything packaged. Dr Naim recommends that patients consume three square meals a day and to load up on fruits and vegetables. Salads, fresh juices and low-fat meals are recommended to maintain one’s svelte new figure.
2. Exercise Regularly
Although detested by many, exercise is the key to leading a healthy lifestyle. According to Dr. Naim, the human body was made to move and patients should do just that. Patients are recommended to join team sports to keep motivation levels high. It is recommended that patients join a fitness club or class, or to exercise with family and friends. This makes exercise time fun and social, giving patients something to look forward to. Recommended exercises are yoga and Pilates. Not only do they help tone and sculpt one’s body, they also encourage deep and healthy breathing which is great for one’s overall well-being.
At the end of the day, a healthy diet and regular light exercise will do wonders for one’s physical and mental well-being. Former patients of Dr. Naim’s who underwent lap band surgery and practiced the aforementioned post-surgery tips, have reported back saying that they look and feel great both inside and out.
