Lose Weight With Diets and Exercise

Jun 17, 2008
The surgery has steps taken to modify the amount of digestive tract that is available for the absorption of nutrients thus limiting the amount of nutrients the body absorbs. There are many types of procedures that can be carried out and they are as varied as the approaches they take to lessen the absorption factors. Though some have limitations and not everybody can undergo these procedures maybe due to underlying diseases but patients who do succeed and are candidates do get manageable results to remedy their severe obesity. Grouped into three major areas; Malabsorptive Procedures, Restrictive procedures, and mixed procedures which can attain the effects from a combination of the two previous processes.

Malabsorptive procedures are generally done to lessen the stomach area that is available to absorb and digest nutrients. This can be a bilo-pancreatic division procedure where the stomach is made smaller and the small intestine is then connected to that smaller pouch. This is now loosing appeal due to some problems associated with malnutrition in patients who fail to eat proper diets, succumbing to the opposite of obesity. Another procedure, the Jejuno-ileal bypass is no longer performed due to complications. The act of lessening the area of the stomach is usually permanent and the tissue is absorbed by the body as it is no longer used.

The next group of bariatric surgery, are the restrictive procedures which can have the stomach either permanently made smaller with stapes or have an elastic adjustable band attached to it allowing adjustment of the volume it can contain. The last group, are the most successful for they combine the good points of all the previous procedures, making the stomach shorter and bypassing most of the intestines lessening the absorptive powers of the digestive tract. Gastric bypass surgery, has the stomach stapled making it smaller then the intestines is cut and attached to that smaller pouch. This has seen the most success for it still maintains the function of the whole digestive tract and just diminishes the ability of the organs within to absorb nutrients through volume reduction and bypassing most of the intestines through re-attachment.

The term detoxification is a misnomer for the body has its natural detoxification system which is the liver and there is no more need in boosting or augmenting it. The liver is the best detoxification system in the human body which filters out all the body's toxins sending them out as waste. Another area of artificial fashionable fat loss/reduction products, contain herbal ingredients that over stimulate the body leading to heat stroke due to the loss of too much fluids from the blood which can lead to shock and even death. Choose a diet and exercise regimen that allows loss of a pound or two a week which is more normal and allows the body to re-adjust to the new diet and body mass accordingly. Nothing that is promised to work in a few days that promises tens of pounds off is safe so be healthy.

The stories come out right before awards nights with many celebrities swearing to their effectivity, fasting and detoxification diets. They say they work, yet experts say they're dangerous. First, depriving your body of the full myriad of minerals contained in the various foodstuffs we eat can cause the body's natural balance to become erratic leading to mood-swings, loss of energy and more serious effects to one's health. The variety of foods we eat contains more or less the total amount of minerals fiber and compounds that allows us to stay healthy which is why doctors recommend a well balanced diet from all the food groups. Take away one and it would be similar to pulling one leg from a table and your body tumbles down. There is no quick way to loose weight and you weigh what you eat. The more active a person is the more calories is burned off.
