Non-surgical medical weight loss options: Are they Reliable?
Non-surgical medical weight loss options are always the best option for weight reduction. The medical options could be resorted to only when all the non surgical attempts have all failed. The question that one may ask is why the non surgical option should work for some people and the same method would not work for other people. The answer is simple. The method would never be the problem rather it could be attributed to poor implementation of the part of the patient. Here are some of the reasons some of the weight loss plans work on some people and fail to work with others.
Most of the patients who tried the program only do that on a short term basis. Some people would just starve themselves for a few weeks and relapse to the same habit. The effect of this is that there would be a surge in weights. The food that one deprives himself is regained when he falls back to the same old habit of eating unhealthy diets. For the program to work the obese must see it as a long term plan that must be sustained despite all odds. Most people who are successful with the program stick to the plan for a long time until it becomes a habit.
Another thing that makes the program not to work for some people is that they tend to cheat while observing the method. If the advice is that the patient must avoid eating chocolate for instance, he must stick to the advice. Most of the people who complain about the program not working for them always abuse the program and that is because of lack of self discipline. If the overweight patients decide he must shed weight through lifestyle change, he must observe the programs as worked out for him by the specialist. Even if the person is to go for the surgical procedure and fall back to the same old habit the problem would manifest again.
Another common problem is that the obese is not eating the right foods prescribed for him by the nutritionists. When one avoids fat and consumes sugar, it is almost the same thing as both sugar and fats work together. One must make inquiries of the right combination of foods to eat and those that should be avoided. The nutritionists always prescribe this. One needs to research further on the types of foods to eat. The right combination of foods is required for the non surgical methods to work for the patients.
Non-surgical medical weight loss options include the gastric balloons or the intragastric balloons. This method has been in existence since 80’s. The way it works is that the stomach balloon will fill the stomach cavity forcing the stomach to empty its contents in the process. The emptying process is done at slow rates. The result of this is the diminished food intake and satiety. The technique is no longer in use in many countries. There is a modification of the method and many people who use the method report a positive result. It is widely used in many parts of the world.
