The video talks about some of the differences between natural weight loss and weight loss surgery. The speaker talks about how many doctors are referring patients for a gastric balloon and other types of weight-loss-geared surgical procedures instead of educating them about natural weight loss, diabetes control, and other methods. Many patients believe that weight loss surgery is “no big deal” and that they can just eat whatever they want, gain a large amount of weight, and then get the surgery, and all will be well.
The truth is that the weight loss surgery is still a surgical procedure that carries risks.
Secondly, candidates should consider the option of trying natural weight-loss methods instead of getting surgery. Sometimes, natural weight loss is just a matter of increasing the level of exercise and decreasing the number of calories eaten every day. In some cases, it’s taking in more essential foods and proteins. People can also have inflammatory illnesses and allergies that cause them to gain water weight that can come off with the proper diet. The video advises people to educate themselves about weight-loss surgery before signing up for it or taking experimental medication. Natural weight loss may be a more effective option.
