Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity. The term bariatrics was created around 1965, from the Greek root bar- (“weight,” as in barometer), suffix -iatr (“treatment,” as in pediatrics), and suffix -ic (“pertaining to”). The field encompasses dieting, exercise and behavioral therapy approaches to weight loss, as well as pharmacotherapy and surgery.

Overweight and obesity are rising medical problems of pandemic proportions. There are many detrimental health effects of obesity: Specifically, individuals with a BMI (Body Mass Index) exceeding a healthy range have a much greater risk of a wide range of medical issues. These include heart disease, diabetes, many types of cancer, asthma, obstructive sleep apnea, chronic musculoskeletal problems, etc. There is also a clear effect of obesity on mortality.

People may find it difficult to lose weight on their own. Indeed, it is common for dieters to have tried a variety of fad diets only to find that they return to their original weight or potentially see a weight gain after a period of time.

Although diet, exercise, behavior therapy and anti-obesity drugs are first-line treatment, medical therapy for severe obesity has limited short-term success and almost nonexistent long-term success. Weight loss surgery generally results in greater weight loss than conventional treatment, and leads to improvements in quality of life and obesity related diseases such as hypertension and diabetes. The combination of approaches used may be tailored to each individual patient.

bariatricsEver since the leaders of Xocai had started talking about the new weight loss system MXI was coming out with they mentioned Dr. Kennedy and the word Bariatrics. Yesterday I listened (and watched) the monthly Corp call and there was this image and for the first time I saw this word. I googled it because my could not translate it. The text above is what I found on Wikipedia.

With the Xoçai High-Antioxidant

Weight-Loss System from Xocai I don’t agree with surgery being the best solution. Even some of the people in my video would surely lose weight, start feeding their bodies with nutrition instead of empty calories and generally just start feeling better.

Too bad I don’t know anybody that obese. I only know people who want to lose 5, 10 lbs, make that kilos in my case :-))) though I’m not obese but carrying that extra weight up to the 4th floor every day, sometimes several times a day is a drag!

Get back to me if you know someone who wants to lose weight, even if they had been trying many time. No matter how much they want or need to lose. No matter how old they are. We’ll be coming out with the results of our clinical study soon, so watch this space!

    ! This information is really good and I will say will always be helpful if we try it risk free, So if you can back it up … That will really help us all. And this might bring some good repute to you. The diet of human beings prior to the arrival of agriculture, technology and civilization is known as the Paleolithic Diet .. This Stone Age diet, in short, consisted of mainly lean red meat and vegetables. In this type of diet animal meat is consumed in large quantities and 45 to 65% of the energy needed by the body is derived from it. Over and over again, life expectancy studies related to diet, including by the World Health Organization (WHO), have concluded that Americans and Europeans would do better to eat more like third world peoples as the options provided by their additional wealth have most often lead to poor nutritional choices. This is the same basis for the USDA based their popular food pyramid in 1992 .. Researchers at Harvard have only suggested perhaps tweaking the food pyramid by replacing some dairy products and read meat with more fruits, vegetables, and fish while also emphasizing the importance of improving the ratio of “good” to “bad” cholesterol! Plus, exercise not only makes weight loss much easier, but also lowers blood glucose levels, decreases blood pressure, improved circulation, and increases one’s metabolism. Good regular sleep patterns are also just as important. Diets based on USDA recommendations include DASH, American Diabetic Assoc, Weight Watchers, and Jenny Craig.. When children understand how important “real food” is and where the natural ingredients of our food come from, they will increase the general population’s appreciation for preserving our natural environment and limiting toxins and polluting processes in our world. We may even trend back to the time when people stepped outside their homes to interact with family and neighbors in home and community gardens and block-party barbeques? Does anybody even remember how nice those days were?
