The Wish and the Fulfillment

Guest Blog By: Jackson M.

The Wish

We have all wished to change our bodies for the better. More often than not the wish is for a sleeker model; those who are more than 100 lbs overweight can do more than just wish. They can look for the best bariatric surgeons St Louis has to offer and change their lives forever. Weight loss surgery isn't frivolous and those who are seriously overweight are not just concerned with looking better. On the contrary, being overweight leads to serious health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. Excess fat can prove difficult to lose; however, where will power alone fails, medical science can succeed. Defiant bodies can be mastered.

The Fulfillment

While dieting and exercise should enable a person to lose weight, there are many obstacles to overcome and being fat sometimes leads to low self-esteem which leads to overeating. Lack of exercise contributes to unwanted body fat, but being fat makes exercise difficult. Bariatric surgery helps the individual to lose weight by limiting the amount of food the stomach can hold and/or decreasing the absorption of calories with adjustable gastric banding, roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy. By eating less and absorbing less of the nutrients eaten, the body is forced to burn the excess body fat it has been hording. You feel better, you look better and are able to move more - thus increasing calorie consumption and quickening your journey to a sleeker model of you.
