Weight Loss Surgery Should be Combined With Lifestyle Change

By HERWriter

Dr. Sunil Bhoyrul is a bariatric surgeon. That means he performs weight loss surgery on patients dealing with obesity.

Most of Dr. Bhoyrul's patients have LAP-BAND surgery, with a smaller percentage receiving gastric bypass surgery.

Dr. Bhoyrul believes that for real success, it is important for patients to do more than undergo surgery, that they change their diets and begin to get some regular exercise.

He also recommends that they actively seek out better ways of handling stress. This may keep them from being tempted to go back to their old unhealthy habits.

"Dr. Sunil Bhoyrul, M.D., is the award-winning surgeon in charge of the bariatric surgery program at La Jolla Weight Management. He is a fellowship-trained specialist in laparoscopic surgery and an attending surgeon at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, California and Alvarado Hospital in San Diego. Previously, Dr. Bhoyrul was the head of general surgery and surgical director of bariatric surgery at the Scripps Clinic."

Resistance bands are great for working out at home. Not only are they affordable, they take up very little space in your home. You can travel with them too. I've got some free exercises that
your readers might be interested in. They're live daily workouts, but they record them so
they can be watched when you have time. I like these because I don't get bored like I do with
DVD's. Every day they have a new workout, but it's complimentary to the previous day's
workout. They've got a good mix of cardio and strength training. There are workouts for
men, women, and teens. It's like having a personal trainer in your own home.
