You are tired of all the fad diets that do not work and the yo-yoing weight loss and weight gain. Lose some weight and gain it back, time and time again.
You want to look and feel healthier so now you are seriously considering having abdominoplasty surgery to correct the problem.
Things to Know About a Tummy Tuck Surgery
First you have to ask yourself, did you really give weight loss the old college try? If you made the commitment to lose weight and change the way you think about and treat food then why did you not lose the weight and keep it off?
Well, the best answer is that you did not make the commitment to lose the weight and change the way you think about and treat food.
I’m not saying you didn’t do some things right, but in the end, if the weight did not stay off then you mostly did the wrong things. I’m also not saying that abdominoplasty surgery is not the way to go here either.
It may be the kick in the pants you need to keep yourself looking good after the surgery.
What Causes Obesity and Overweight?
I think everybody wants to be thin and healthy. It is just that the way we eat these days is so wrong. Most of us don’t even know why. Think about the way things have changed over the years, though.
When I was young, fast food was a rarity and we only ever had it as a treat once or twice a year. Maybe a little more often than that but not much.
Then, the world just seemed to get busier and people stopped cooking meals for their families because they did not have time.
Women went back to work and “convenience foods” became the norm. Processed foods loaded with carbs and sodium make meals easier and also make our waistlines thicker.
Fatigue is rampant and so no one wants to get out there and even just go for a walk because they are too tired. So what happens when you do not burn off more calories than you take in? Weight gain.
Then all of a sudden you are 50, 75, or even 100 pounds over weight and even though you want to lose it you just can’t seem to lose more than a few pounds at a time then it gets put right back on plus a few more. It is a cycle that only you can break and it takes dedication and self discipline.
You must make the change from processed food to fresh food. Some good advice for you to take to heart, when you shop, shop around the outer edges of the store. Everything on the shelves in the middle of the store is mostly canned and processed food.
The outer edges has fresh vegetables even fresh breads from the bakery and even though some of the packaged meats are processed, like hot dogs, if you shop the outer edges of the store you generally get the healthier, fresh stuff.
A number of factors can play a role in weight gain. These include diet, lack of exercise, factors in a person’s environment, and genetics.
If you’re considering having a tummy tuck or have one planned, it’s important to consider what the recovery will involve.
Your recuperation will depend on several factors, including your age, health, and body weight. It will also depend on the type of tummy tuck you have.
