Losing weight and successfully keeping it off long term can be difficult to achieve naturally, and getting medical assistance for a healthier and better quality of life simply makes sense.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) January 20, 2021
A December 18 article on 9Honey reports on a 27-year-old woman in New Zealand who was able to shed an astonishing 176 pounds after undergoing weight loss surgery. The patient, Claire Burt, said she battled eating disorders, depression, and isolation as a result of her excessive weight but was unable to slim down despite frequent dieting and medication. The article reports that Ms. Burt was finally able to receive gastric sleeve surgery in April when 80% of her stomach was removed. Ms. Burt stated that since the surgery, she hasn’t faced any obsessive thoughts over food, and her mental state has significantly improved. Health and beauty medical center Beverly Hills Physicians says that losing weight and successfully keeping it off long term can be difficult to achieve naturally, and getting medical assistance for a healthier and better quality of life simply makes sense.
Beverly Hills Physicians says that, while most people have less weight to lose, what Ms. Burt experienced while attempting to lose weight on her own is exactly what many severely obese individuals face. The clinic says that, while it is possible for some people to lose weight naturally on their own, keeping the weight off is nearly always unsustainable because the body fights what it perceives as the threat of starvation. Beverly Hills Physicians says that, because the body becomes accustomed to receiving a certain number of calories every day, it sends hunger signals to the brain in an attempt to encourage the individual to eat more when that intake is significantly reduced.
The health and beauty medical group says that this is why medical intervention is often necessary to lose and maintain a healthy weight for those fighting obesity. By removing a portion of the stomach in such procedures as sleeve gastrectomy, the hormone center responsible for sending the hunger pangs is often minimized. In addition, Beverly Hills Physicians says that, with a drastically smaller stomach, patients are only able to eat smaller portions comfortably, further helping individuals maintain weight loss.
The bariatric center adds that when patients can lose a significant amount of weight, they are not only reducing the likelihood of developing health issues such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease, but they are also improving their overall quality of life. Mobility, energy levels, and more can all be subtle benefits of losing significant amounts of weight.
