The Best Weight Loss Surgery Options in the World
If you are looking for the best weight loss surgery options, then you have come to the right place.
Obesity, as you know, is a dead end.
It is time to begin crossing the bridge from fat to fit, from obesity to feeling comfortable and relief within your own body.
I am the last person to minimize the desperation of a person who is struggling with weight to the point that you feel compelled to explore the weight loss surgery options available route to get relief from your obesity.
I am you.
I understand the pressure of obesity and the desire to get rid of your fat fast.
At my highest, I was up to over 275 pounds, a hundred pounds overweight for my height, so I get it.
How any of us gets to that state of obesity is for another time, but for now, let’s focus on how to cross the bridge from fat to fit.
Here are a number of weight loss surgery options that you might not have considered:
Weight Loss Surgery Option #1
Walking 2 to 3 miles every morning.
Every morning starting today or tomorrow, when you get up, on an empty stomach (other than water), get yourself out of the house or on a treadmill and walk religiously for 2 to 3 miles.
You are going to feel better.
You are going to get your body moving first thing in the morning and do the right thing for your own health.
Of course, weight loss surgery is going to remove fat faster but at what cost?
I am not going to go into the dangers and complications of weight loss surgery in this post because this post is about obesity solutions, but you are well aware of the danger of any surgery, especially one that will touch your inner organs.
A walk of thirty minutes to one hour is all that you are asking of yourself.
Start this new habit immediately and within a month, you will be looking forward to your next walk faster than you would have believed.
You need new habits.
You need new habits that are effective for your health instead of the old habits that got you searching for weight loss surgery options in the first place.
If you are thinking about enriching another doctor’s bank account because you are unwilling to get up off of the couch, that is your choice.
Most likely you do not move around that much during the day.
Roll out of bed, sit on the chair to have breakfast, sit in the car, sit at the desk, drive home, sit again for dinner, sit on the couch and watch tv, roll back into bed.
A lot of sitting and not enough moving!
Before you think of going under the knife, how about taking a walk every day for the next 30 days?
There is no reason to not, at least, give yourself a month to begin some new habits that can help you to safely lose the weight.
I know what I am talking about.
You can do it.
I start off with walking because that is the simplest and most accessible form of movement for many people.
If walking is not possible, consider an activity that might be possible like swimming, biking or rowing.
The point is to break a sweat every morning before breakfast and before starting your day serving others.
Serve yourself and your body first.
This is your body, you have to take care of it.
Weight Loss Surgery Option #2
Have Oatmeal for Breakfast
Right now, what do you usually have for breakfast?
Do you even have breakfast?
About 31 million people in America skip breakfast every day.1)http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/11/31-million-americans-skip_n_1005076.html
But if you are one of these 31 million, you are not in great company.
Because skipping breakfast is associated with several problems, especially your problem of losing weight.
Skipping breakfast is associated with an increased prevalence of obesity.2)http://aje.oxfordjournals.org/content/158/1/85.full
So, first of all, stop skipping breakfast.
Next, if you are having muffins, bagels or boxed cereals loaded with sugar, this also has to stop.
A coffee is not breakfast.
You need to start having a breakfast that will give you some bang for your buck of spending the time to prepare it.
This is where our second weight loss surgery option comes in:
Have oatmeal for breakfast.
Not oatmeal loaded with sugar like the flavored oatmeal that you can find on the supermarket shelf.
Just plain old fashioned oats.
A half cup of oatmeal provides you with 4 grams of fiber.
Add a tablespoon of peanut butter, 1 more gram, a banana, 2 more grams, a tablespoon of walnuts and a half an orange for another three grams gives you 9 grams of fiber at breakfast alone, about 25% of the daily recommendation of 35 grams.
Eating foods with fiber is effective for both weight loss and digestion.
Oatmeal is an excellent source of fiber and will help you stay full longer because of the slower digestion.
Oatmeal can lower your risk for high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.
Oatmeal also contains lignans, a plant chemical that has been found to prevent heart disease.
You know that for most cases, your lifestyle, your meals, your food choices are what you brought you to this point.
Of course, you cannot take all the blame, you do not know any better after being fed a lifetime of advertising and marketing to seduce you into buying more nice looking packages filled with terrible ‘food’ that is not worthy of the food label.
Real food is your friend and your fuel, and manufactured ‘food’ is not.
Oatmeal is a top food to eat to improve your cholesterol numbers.
Oats, oat bran, and oatmeal contain a specific type of fiber known as beta-glucan. Since 1963, study after study has proven the beneficial effects of this special fiber on cholesterol levels. Studies show that in individuals with high cholesterol (above 220 mg/dl), consuming just 3 grams of soluble oat fiber per day (an amount found in one bowl of oatmeal) typically lowers total cholesterol by 8-23%. This is highly significant since each 1% drop in serum cholesterol translates to a 2% decrease in the risk of developing heart disease.3)http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=54
Finally, oatmeal is going to help you lose weight by keeping your blood sugars more stable and preventing the cravings that lead to food binges, the wrecking ball for every person who struggles with obesity.
Just about anyone can make oatmeal.
Measure out a half cup of dry oats, which you can get in your supermarket, I generally use Uncle Ben’s Old Fashioned Oats.
Add a cup of water and bring the water to a boil.
Voila, you have a fast, easy and healthy breakfast.
You can see below that you have a perfect breakfast with 12 grams of protein and 9 grams of fat and plenty of real food carbs to fuel you through your morning.
I chose oatmeal because that is about as american as apple pie and most people probably have or can acquire the taste, besides the speed to put your breakfast together and the health benefits as we noted above.
Wouldn’t you rather consider 30 days of having oatmeal for breakfast before going under the knife?
|Giant – Old Fashioned Oats, 40 g dry (1/2 cup)||150||27||3||5||0||4|
|Smuckers – Natural Peanut Butter – Creamy (2tbsp), 1 TBSP (32g)||100||3||8||4||0||1|
|Banana – Large, 0.5 banana||55||14||0||1||0||2|
|Generic – 1 Tbsp Chopped Walnuts, 1 tbsp (8 grams)||52||1||5||1||0||1|
|Generic – Naval Orange Large, 0.5 large (184g)||44||11||0||1||0||2|
If you do not like oatmeal, or it is too hot outside or you just prefer a fresher option, try out some fruit, vegetables, healthy fats and some dates.
For example, cut up some fresh vegetables, fruit, avocado, include a handful of nuts and have a few dates.
You will feel great guaranteed.
If you are still hungry, have some cooked Kasha or a couple of rice cakes with peanut butter or almond butter on top.
Weight Loss Surgery Option #3
When you are hydrated, it will be easier for your liver to process and remove fat from your body.
Better hydration is going to help your thinking and general sense of well being as well.
Weight Loss Surgery Option #4
Get to sleep on time.
The less sleep, the more cortisol, your stress hormone, the more cortisol, the fatter and less happy you will be, so do yourself a favor and get to sleep so you can get a good 8 hours.
Weight Loss Surgery Option #5
Get motivated to take back your power.
You can do this.
You can eat healthier.
You can move your body more.
You can walk every day or swim or cycle.
You can eat more fruits and vegetables and crowd out the processed foods.
You can boil yourself a sweet potato or cook up some chickpeas or black beans.
There are more effective weight loss surgery options than weight loss surgery.
Before you go under the knife, give yourself 30 more days, even a week of the above 5 habits only.
I hope that you find that surgery is not the only weight loss surgery option.
