Weight Loss Options for a Healthier Life

As Dr. Michael Feiz and all medical experts agree, losing weight is an essential part of the process of becoming a healthier person. Since obesity is linked to many health risks, such as diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, and joint pain, it can be a huge hindrance on a person’s life. There are a myriad of ways to lose weight, each with varying degrees of success depending on your lifestyle and genetics. Strict diet is a good way to shed the pounds, but you have to be willing to make a lot of sacrifices. Daily exercise is another weight loss method that shows results, but you have to be committed to the activity. Exercise can be difficult if you have physical issues linked to your size that make it impossible to be as active.

One weight loss method that often shows the best results is weight loss surgeries. There are a few different types of procedures that can change your life for the better. The Lap Band creates an hourglass shape of your stomach, while the gastric sleeve removes part of the stomach. Lap Band vs. sleeve decisions are good to have with a qualified surgeon like Dr. Feiz, who can help you make an informed decision. There is also Lap Band revision surgery that can transform the band to sleeve.
