Everyone is aware that excess weight will threaten your health. It’s
in the newspaper, the television, internet and the radio. Almost every
day a new report on the hazards of excess weight is published.
The media generally focuses on the medical consequences of excess weight,
but the primary problem caused by obesity is the inability of many people
to live life to the fullest. The more overweight a person is, the more
difficult it becomes to enjoy normal activities; to be able to walk up
stairs comfortably, to ride a bike, or to simply get in and out of a car.
These things, taken for granted by many, are the personal restrictions
that so many obese people endure every minute of their lives.
What can be done? How can a severely overweight person experience the “normal
life” everyone seems to expect? The answer, of course, is permanent
weight loss. But, for severely obese people, how is this achieved?
The truth is that people suffering from severe obesity need a High Impact
Weight Loss program to succeed, and the most successful method for severely
obese people (BMI>35) to achieve substantial, permanent weight loss
is through weight loss surgery.
Fortunately, minimally invasive techniques are now the standard for weight
loss surgery. As a result, recovery from surgery is faster and most patients
are back home after one night in the hospital. In fact, statistically,
undergoing weight loss surgery is safer than carrying around all that
In the practice of modern medicine today, all severely obese people that
want permanent weight loss should consider surgery. If surgery is not
the answer for a particular person, then a different form of High Impact
Weight Loss should be pursued.
Medical benefits aside, the real benefit from effective weight loss is
the opportunity to regain that healthy “normal life” again.
