When a Weight Loss Surgery In Mexico Is More Convenient Than a Diet

At present, several factors can make it difficult for a person to lose weight. These can usually be summed up as two active elements: nutrition and physical activity. But what happens when a person, despite eating well, cannot lose weight? Or, what do people who are overweight or morbidly obese do?

Often, one of the most accessible options is to go on a diet. The problem with diets is that most people search the internet for miracle diets, and none of these diets are certified or supervised by specialists. Despite this, they follow the recommendations they saw, and although they may be effective at first, over time, these type of diets can cause severe problems in the person’s health.

The Problem of Unsupervised Diets

First, it is essential to clarify that there is no such thing as a miracle diet, so it is essential to consider that there is a high probability that the person who starts one of these diets will “rebound” over time. And while it’s true that this can also happen with weight loss surgery in Mexico, the reality is that rebound only happens if the person doesn’t take care of himself and goes back to bad eating habits 

To understand the impact of diets and how dangerous they can be if there is no control or monitoring, we can specify it as follows:

The person, by following diets that are not regulated, enters into a kind of deception towards his body. This is because many of these diets found on the internet are low in nutrients and energy, which causes weight loss, but it’s only temporary. The body will reach a point where losing more weight will be impossible, and at the moment of abandoning the diet, there will be a rebound where all the weight lost and even more will be regained.

Why Choose Weight Loss Surgery In Mexico Over a Diet?

The answer is simple, since it is a process monitored by a specialist, the patient will present fewer health problems; in fact, it can improve some conditions that showed. On the other hand, a person who is on a diet can generate illnesses caused by low levels of nutrients. Therefore, the weight loss surgery in Mexico it is a better option if the person suffers from weight loss problems.

With this type of surgery, the patient will not only be able to lose weight or improve certain conditions but can also enhance the quality of his or her life. These surgeries are an excellent option for those who suffer from morbid obesity or those who have weight loss difficulties.

Regardless of which surgery the person is interested in, there is more than 75% success rate in these operations. The best part is that if a patient undergoes weight loss surgery in Mexico, there is a low probability of weight gain. After the surgery has passed, there will be gradual weight loss. Still, in this process, there must be advice from people who specialize in nutrition, psychology, and physical therapy.

Changes That Make The Difference

Just as mentioned in the previous blog post called “Weight Loss & Metabolism”, metabolism plays a significant role in weight loss surgery. Therefore, it is necessary to adapt the changes generated after weight loss surgery in Mexico, following a diet according to the needs of the surgical procedure and the body itself, as well as increasing the physical activity performed daily.


Although having an operation can be complicated, sometimes is the best option, especially when the person is already having multiple problems due to overweight or morbid obesity. It is better to resort to weight loss surgery in Mexico than a diet when a person has serious obesity problems or is unable to lose weight due to various factors. Remember that a diet can help you temporarily, but weight loss surgery can help you for a lifetime.

Weight Loss & Metabolism – Part 2

As stated in the previous blog article, metabolism rate is the most important factor is weight control.  VGS surgery creates a short term metabolism change, that greatly helps with weight loss, and combined with the decreased ability to consume a lot of food, weight loss is almost automatic. However, to maximize weight loss, and to maintain weight loss, it is important to learn to eat correctly. Dietitians recommend eating 6 times a day. The reason is, by continually consuming small amounts of food, the metabolism stays reeved up, causing the body to burn more calories. When a person only eats once or twice a day, the extended periods when there is no food in your stomach, allows the level of ghrelin to build up, which in turn causes your metabolism to slow down. The result is that even if you eat only once or twice a day, and are even consuming less calories, nevertheless, your body is going to burn less calories, and your body will store up fat.

Another thing that is important for metabolism to be accelerated, is a little exercise. When a body has even a small amount of exercise, daily, it will help keep the metabolism rate up. It is not that one has to do excessive exercise to be thin, rather just enough to cause the body metabolism to reeve up, so it continues to burn more calories all day. If all you can do is to go walk for 15-20 minutes twice a day, your metabolism will increase, and your body will burn more calories all day long.   

The third rule about keeping your metabolism rate up, and controlling your weight, has to do with the type of foods you consume.  Your body will increase the metabolism if you eat complex carbohydrates and low fat proteins. But your metabolism will slow down, if you eat simple carbohydrates, like sugar, and breads, and also slows down if you eat fatty foods.  

Summing things up: to lose weight, eat a balanced diet, low in fatty foods, and no sugar or bead. Eat veggies, chicken, fish, or lean meat, and break the meals up so that you are eating in small amounts, spread out in 6 meals a day. Do a moderate amount of daily exercise, and with the increased metabolism, you will continue to lose the weight until you reach your goal.

Weight Loss & Metabolism – Part 1

Vertical Gastric Sleeve Surgery is just the beginning of the journey to a healthy life style. Many times our patients have come to us after years of repeated diets, having their gone up and down, and never having accomplished their goal. But the surgery in and of itself is not the ultimate solution, it is just the beginning. Vertical Gastric Sleeve Surgery surgery will give you a jump start, a short cut if you will, for weight loss. The pounds will almost automatically come off after the surgery, but to continue the weight loss, as well as to keep the weight off, the patient still needs to learn to eat right and to change some life style habits.

This is how Vertical Gastric Sleeve Surgery surgery works. First, the volume of the stomach is drastically reduced, resulting is the patient only being able to consume very small portions of food. Second, because a large portion of the stomach pouch is removed, the stomach produces much less of the Ghrelin hormone, which is what stimulates appetite, resulting in a reduction of feelings of hunger, making it easier to eat less. Thirdly, because the levels of ghrelin are lower, the body’s metabolism doesn’t slow down causing it to burn more calories, although the body is taking in less calories. Right after the Vertical Gastric Sleeve Surgery surgery, one will lose weight almost automatically, because the stomach doesn’t have room for much food, and the metabolism changes. However, after the stomach heals from surgery, it can eventually stretch out again, so it is important to learn to eat right, or weight gain will start to happen again.

We all know someone who seems to eat all the time, and yet stays thin, no matter what. We all wonder why is that? It is simple, they have a high rate of metabolism, and naturally burn a lot of calories. That is why keeping the metabolism at a high level is actually the most important component to weight loss, above all other factors. If we can understand this, we can focus on keeping the metabolism high, so that weight loss will continue, and once we reach our goal, that we keep the weight off.
