The Adjustable Gastric Lap-Band: Not Just Another Diet
The challenge of sustainable weight loss is considerable: 90% to 95% of dieters regain their lost weight.
Lap-band vs. Diet and Exercise? Why Diets Fail.
Chances are you’ve lost count. So many people think that if you’re seriously overweight, you don’t have any willpower or self-control. But at CIBO, we know that it’s just the opposite. You have plenty of willpower – you’ve probably been dieting most of your life. You’ve lost weight, but you’ve also gained it back, probably more than once.
The fact that you’ve been on so many diets is one of the main reasons you can’t lose weight. Doesn’t seem logical, does it?
But here’s the truth of the matter: losing and gaining weight over and over again slows down your metabolism, and actually makes it harder to lose weight and keep it off. By constantly cutting calories, you’ve taught your body to get better at storing fat, and to fight deprivation by slowing down the rate at which you burn calories.
Yo-yo dieting is hard on your self-esteem, too. After failing multiple times, your psyche is probably not prepared for success.
So what’s the solution?
A recent article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal recommends weight loss surgery for people who have failed to achieve a healthy weight through conventional weight loss methods like diet and exercise.
