Does it Work?

Because so many people now turn to weight loss surgery, we can determine conventional diets don’t work. But this doesn’t necessarily mean that surgery works either. To answer that, we first have to understand more about obesity itself.

How Bad Is it?

According to statistics, some 34.9% of Americans are now obese. Unfortunately, this includes children and teenagers, in which population group rates are rising significantly. There are also millions of people who are overweight and heading towards obesity. Plus, many people are now morbidly obese and super morbidly obese.

What about Health?

When some is classed as obese, their risk of premature death is increased by 50% to 100%. This risk is even higher for the morbidly obese and the super morbidly obese. Usually, it is not the weight that kills them, but rather the co-morbid conditions. This includes heart attacks, strokes and type 2 diabetes. On average, lifespan is reduced by around 20 years just by being obese, although this does vary a bit depending on gender and ethnic background.

Premature Death Research

A huge study looked into nearly a million obese individuals. It showed that men were twice as likely to die young if they were obese. They five times more likely to develop diabetes and four times more likely to have disease of the digestive tract. For women, the same mortality rate existed, but the chance of developing diabetes was increased by 800% and the chance of digestive tract disease was 300% higher. Other studies showed similar or even worse results. The chance of dying from cancer was between 150% and 500% higher.

Other Illnesses

The obese aren’t just at risk of dying young. They are also at greater risk of developing illnesses. The list of medical disorders and illnesses directly associated with obesity is almost endless.

So Does Surgery Work?

Clearly, surgery is needed in order to help people lose weight. The question remains whether or not it works. Luckily, statistics seem to show that surgery is, by and large, highly successful. This means that patients not only lose a significant amount of weight, but are also able to keep it off over the course of at least five years. As medical technology advances, the success rates are also going up. However, what is incredibly important is that those who undergo the surgery are fully aware of the fact that they have to be committed to making lifestyle changes. Without that, they will be incapable of keeping the weight off. While statistics are improving, some surgeries do still fail because people simply return to overeating and not moving. This is why surgeons are now also committed to supporting their patients to change their relationship with food.

First and foremost, what is a plateau?  It is a state wherein a little or no difference is taking place despite of continuous activity.   Isn’t it frustrating when a person exerts so much effort in trying to achieve a goal and yet, you can hardly feel the result?  Well, stop worrying!  This is not a major issue to be bothered with.  Let us be reminded of the “reward system”.  

For the fitness conscious, the reward system is a good tool to consider.  During my post-natal, I was 40 pounds over my desired weight.  Going to the gym became a passion for I need to beat the timeline I set in losing the excess.  Initiated with a 20-minute treadmill walking, a number of floor exercises and lessening of carbohydrate intake, a sudden drop of 8 pounds was experienced in 10 days.  Succeeding days, more rigid training and lowering the portion of food intake done, an additional 5 pounds were lost.  So happy with the outcome. I continued doing the same routine for the next 3 weeks, however, my weight remain stagnant.  I started to feel frustrated and skeptic with what I was doing.  I decided to change my routine, a more intense program of exercises, more repetitions, and strictly following a balanced diet.   Reward system now comes into the picture, with a 2-week hardcore training, I get one cheat day wherein I can eat anything I want.  Good reward and fair deal!

Punk is a subculture that’s hard to describe. Thankfully, describing punk fashion is a little easier. Here are just six pieces of clothing, jewelry and accessories that will help you brand yourself as ready to rock and roll.

1. Bondage Straps

Bondage straps most commonly attach to your  belt loops and crisscrossed behind your pants, but they can also be worn around the chest, arms and waist. The great thing about punk fashion is that there are no rules. If you can dream it, you can wear it.

2. Boots

Steel-toed combat boots are an essential accessory in a punk rock wardrobe. That said, if you can’t get your hands on something military-grade, any pair of boots will do. Just make sure they’re sturdy and ready for anything.

3. Plaid

Plaid is closely associated with punk culture. In fact, punks have been wearing red plaid for decades! The color wheel has recently expanded, however, and punks now wear plaid in red, black, green, pink and even rainbow. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different hues and find the one that speaks to the punk within.

4. Rings

Anyone can wear a single ring. Punks, however, have taken ring-wearing and elevated it to an art form, decorating their fingers with multiple sets, bands and stones of varying types, colors and sizes. You aren’t a punk unless you can handle 10+ rings at once, and this applies to women and men.

5. Music Merchandise

While some subsets of punk culture reject music and song, others embrace it wholeheartedly, especially if it’s vintage rock. If you’re hoping to find the perfect gift for the punk in your family, a t-shirt emblazoned with a classic rock singer is a sure bet.

6. Hair Dye

It’s quite common to see punks with hair dyed every color of the rainbow. This is an expression of defiance to conformity and authority; while everyone else in the world has hair in varying shades of brown, blonde and red, punks explode on the scene with hair in electric blue and dazzling purple. Try some dye for yourself and feel how liberating it is to step outside the box!

These are just a few must-have punk rock accessories. Whether you’re new to the lifestyle or an old hand at anarchy, these tips should help you both dress yourself like a punk and recognize others who are doing the same.
