There are hundreds, maybe even thousands, of weight loss programs in existence today. Some of them are quite good, some of them are ridiculously bad, but even those programs that are safe and effective do not fully address the entirety of the weight loss challenge for those who are “weight loss impaired”. So, who is the weight loss impaired? Someone who is weight loss impaired has tried numerous diets, a variety of exercises, perhaps has hired a personal trainer, maybe has used supplements or drugs, and maybe has even tried acupuncture or hypnosis at one time or another. The weight loss impaired are those people who have tried “everything” to lose weight and either were unable to lose weight at all or who did lose some weight and then gained it all back – and sometimes more. The weight loss impaired are frustrated, desperate, and usually more than a little depressed about their weight problems.

Weight Loss Drugs:

In my opinion, no weight loss drug that has been on the market at the time of this writing has a risk to benefit ratio that is acceptable. Yes, severely overweight and obese individuals are at risk for a variety of health problems. Unfortunately, the short and long-term risks of every weight loss drug that has been produced to date outweigh their potential benefits. My recommendation is to avoid the use of all over the counter and prescription weight loss drugs.

Weight Loss Surgery:

I do feel that for the extremely obese, weight loss surgery may be a reasonable option, but I strongly recommend trying the approach presented in this book first. Weight loss surgery is nothing magical. It merely shrinks your stomach to the point where you are absolutely forced to abide by an extremely restricted food and liquid intake – or face some rather unpleasant reactions. If you can find a way to control your food intake without surgery, you will get the same benefits of weight loss surgery without the risks and without the social challenges related to the radically restricted eating plan that follows such surgery. I have met several people who have the idea that they just have the surgery and then lose weight quickly and easily. They have no concept that following such a surgery, they won’t be able to eat and drink as they used to. They don’t realize that they will only be able to eat a few bites of food per meal, they’ll have to be very careful about what they eat, and that they’ll only be able to drink a few ounces of liquid at one sitting. Yes, they will be informed of these radical changes before they are accepted for surgery, but some people are so anxious for the surgery they may not fully accept what they are being told until after they’ve had the surgery and it is too late. Fortunately, most of the currently popular weight loss surgeries are reversible if necessary, but anyone considering such a procedure needs to think very carefully before going forward.

In all what I want to say is whether magic pills or surgeries, both doesn’t provide you with a lifelong guarantee to keep your weight at bay. According to me, a change in lifestyle, eating habits and exercise are better weight loss strategy. You may always choose to differ.
