My Weight Is Over: Introduction to Obesity
It’s no secret that people who are very obese have higher rates of medical problems, translating into greater need for weight loss.
The high prevalence of obesity in our adult population and the likelihood that these conditions will become more critical with the passing of time and the increase of weight provides the rationale for more extreme measures (such as bariatric surgery, gastric bypass and the lap band procedure) to control the weight and lower the risks of obesity related illness.
The health risks of obesity are numerous and very real. In fact, obesity in the United States is a serious and growing problem. Would you or a loved one be considered obese? This definition of obesity will help you determine where you fall on the body mass index scale. The more you know, the more you'll want to know about obesity surgery options and join the thousands of Americans who have successfully lost weight and kept it off after surgery.
