Healthcare decisions are usually challenging, but after the year we’ve had, they can seem even more daunting. This pandemic has us wondering what’s helpful and what’s detrimental, especially with different perspectives all over the internet. This is also true for bariatric surgery and weight loss methods because there are all kinds of articles out there about what works and what doesn’t.

As medical professionals, we recommend you take the time to read legitimate sources when educating yourself on the subject. If you want medical advice, make sure you’re getting it from a medical professional. Talking to people who’ve had a personal experience with the procedures you’re researching is also helpful, but understand that different people have different bodies and minds and therefore, different opinions and experiences. If you want direct medical “how is this done,” answers, then you know who to call (and it’s not the Ghostbusters!).

Hospital/clinic websites (like our website), medical group websites like WebMD, Healthgrades, and Mayo Clinic are some trusted websites for information on medical procedures.

On our website, view our FREE, no-obligation weight loss seminar where you’ll learn about the different types of surgical and non-surgical options (such as the Orbera intragastric balloon) as well as treatment expectations and outcomes. We will cover the health qualifications, like BMI, and other indicators that help determine what procedures are right for you. Just follow this link!

Benefits of Stretching for Weight Loss

The best thing about flexibility training is that you don’t have to do it very often or for very long to enjoy the benefits. Just a few minutes of stretching each day will help to improve the range of motion in your joints, may help to decrease the risk of injury during exercise, and can reduce stress.

Consistency is important to boost your flexibility. But even if you participate in a stretching program two or three times per week, your body will feel better.

Even though you won’t burn mega calories during a short stretching session, your body functions better when your joints move more comfortably. This can improve your weight loss program in several different ways.

The Importance of Hydration

Drinking enough water each day is crucial for many reasons: to regulate body temperature, keep joints lubricated, prevent infections, deliver nutrients to cells, and keep organs functioning properly. Being well-hydrated also improves sleep quality, cognition, and mood.
