Children can take part in weight-loss programs, but child-centered programs are more difficult to find. The nutritional and psychological needs of children are different from adults, so talk to your child’s pediatrician before enrolling him or her in a formal weight-control program. Online sites and smart-phone apps are also available to help children lose weight in a healthy manner and can help protect the relationship between parents and children.

Bariatric surgery is the general term for a variety of weight loss surgical procedures that reduce the size of the stomach, helping patients to lose weight and maintain health through reduced consumption, healthy eating and exercise. The surgery is a tool, not a cure, to help treat weight problems. Our mission is to help patients transform their lives through surgical weight loss when nonsurgical attempts have been unsuccessful.
Fat cells are dispersed unevenly throughout the body, and their distribution differs from person to person. Some people have a greater number of fat cells around the waist and hips, while others have more around their thighs. This is why body shapes vary so much and why so many of us are likely to gain weight in “all the wrong places”. UltraShape™ can change our contours by reducing the number of fat cells in a problem area.
Sustained weight loss for patients who are morbidly obese—usually defined as being 100 pounds or more over ideal body weight or having a body mass index of 40 or higher—is even harder to achieve. And serious health risks have been identified for people who move from diet to diet, subjecting their bodies to a severe and continuing cycle of weight loss and gain known as "yo-yo dieting."

He feels weight management is the core driver in the management for all modern illnesses. Weight management is complex as the reason for weight gain is multifactorial. Successful weight loss can only be achieved after ascertaining the underlying reasons for weight gain and providing a structured, personalised plan. Providing a personalised plan to 30% of the population, who are obese with the current available models is not possible and unrealistic.
Results were that I quickly shed some excess weight and body fat, reduced abdominal measurement (over the stomach); felt more energetic and more focused. Five month later, I am still feeling the benefits and, more slowly, the weight is still reducing. Monica was a great help, very responsive and flexible to my timetable. A great service, well worth the time and effort.
When it comes to dieting and exercise, there is a lot of talk of ‘willpower’. This can backfire and make a person feel bad about them. For example, a person that has tried to unsuccessfully lose weight over and over again will end up feeling they have no willpower or are lazy. With a bit of careful thought, one can see why such an assumption is irrational. How can a person that has tried dieting over and over again be lazy? In the same way, people that talk about willpower tend to have an extreme and radical view of dieting and exercise, and their militant approach to weight loss might not apply to everyone.
The ReShape Duo, developed by California-based Reshape Medical, is the world’s only dual intra-gastric balloon. The dual balloon has 3 potential advantages over traditional single gastric balloons: the shape of the dual balloon fits the natural curvature of the stomach, allowing it to sit in a more comfortable position; the two balloons can hold up to 900ml of saline occupying more space in the stomach,; and as each balloon is filled and sealed independently, in the unlikely chance a balloon should deflate, the other balloon will hold the device in place until it can be removed.

You cannot spot reduce! Weight loss results from an energy deficit; burning more calories than you take in. Aerobic exercise will help create this energy deficit. Genetics and gender play a role in where we store excess fat and where it comes off first. Abdominal exercises will tighten and tone the abdominals but will not directly affect the layer of abdominal adipose.
Your home and work environment. If you are surrounded by people who consume a typical American diet at home and work, you may have a harder time sticking to this plan. Most common foods (starchy carbohydrates like bread, pasta, rice, baked goods) are not included in a ketogenic diet. Cravings for these foods may be difficult and even intolerable at times.

Obesity, by definition, means your body mass index (BMI) is 30 or higher, which usually means you are 20 percent or more over ideal body weight. Morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI of 40 or higher and typically means that you are 100 pounds or more overweight. As the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States, obesity poses a major public health challenge.

Your first detox is like picking up a new sport. At first it is intriguing, you are super motivated and excited about the potential results. Then it begins… the pain and concentration that you need to have to strictly eat what you are supposed to eat/drink and NOTHING else. You have a moment of doubt and maybe even laziness, usually around the liquid days, where you wonder if you are going to be able to reach your goal and whether all this is worth it. You eventually pull through and once you are finally done, you realise how much better you feel, how much better you look and how excited you are about feeling in control of your body’s health. Angelique kept saying she regularly does a detox and I always thought it was because she was way more devoted than everyone else, but I get it now. I am actually looking forward to my next one!
