Commenting on a recent article, Dr. Feiz & Associates note that although modified city developments can promote a more active lifestyle and help some people lose weight, severely obese individuals need more help.

Bariatric surgery is a more effective method for severely obese patients to lose weight.

Dr. Feiz & Associates note that, even though a more active lifestyle contributes to weight loss and overall improved health...bariatric surgery remains the only proven form of medical assistance available for dealing with severe obesity.

According to an article published August 9 on Forbes, reorganizing city infrastructure so that residents are encouraged to walk more and lead less sedentary lifestyles could help to encourage a decline in obesity. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that, even though a more active lifestyle contributes to weight loss and overall improved health, severely obese patients need more than a few added minutes of light exercise each day to restore their health, and bariatric surgery remains a proven form of medical assistance available for dealing with severe obesity. The Los Angeles based weight loss surgery center notes that there are a variety of ways in which bariatric surgery can significantly improve the overall quality of a patient’s life, such as:

Active Lifestyle - Severely obese patients who successfully lose a significant amount of weight through bariatric surgery are able to participate in a more active lifestyle that might involve regular daily walks. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that patients often suffer from mobility issues because of their excess weight and walking for more than a very short distance can become difficult for many. After losing weight following a bariatric surgery, such as a gastric sleeve, Dr. Feiz & Associates note that patients are very often more able to participate in a variety of physical activities, ranging from walking to more vigorous forms of exercise.

Favorite Activities - Dr. Feiz & Associates note that along with an increasingly active lifestyle, patients who successfully undergo a weight loss surgery are more likely to participate in favorite activities they had previously been forced to forego, as well as to take up new interests in many cases. Previously held back by their excess weight, bariatric surgery patients are more likely to participate in activities of all types that they might otherwise shy away from that can often promote a healthier way of living and frame of mind. The Los Angeles weight loss surgery center notes that losing a significant amount of weight through weight loss surgery procedures can encourage patients to partake in more social and physical activities that can, in many cases, have a highly positive impact on their overall quality of life, as well as their physical and mental health.

Better Relationship with Food - Oftentimes, severely obese patients who undergo a bariatric surgery experience a change in their tastes and food preferences. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that patients are more likely to trade in their prior unhealthy eating habits for more wholesome food choices after a bariatric surgery. This new relationship with food can make it more likely for patients to maintain their weight and benefit from the many health improvements that come with a truly nutritious diet that is high in nutrition and low in sugar, unhealthy fats, and excess sodium.

Dr. Feiz & Associates concludes by noting that bariatric surgery is a highly effective method of weight loss for severely obese patients.
