Obesity is misunderstood

Many people who struggle with their weight feel like a failure, especially when none of the diet or exercise programs they try work. The truth is, mindfulness and training your brain to focus on specific things are more important to weight loss success than exercise.

The secret is in your brain

Obesity changes your brain so you are no longer in control. Bariatric surgery reprograms your brain as it relates to food and self-image. Bariatric surgery, combined with mindfulness and brain training, is the best solution to lose the weight and keep it off long-term.

Dr. David Brown and the staff at Idaho BMI understand your frustration and pain. We’re also obsessed with helping you solve the puzzle of obesity. Because you can’t get to the cure until you put all the pieces together.

There is a lot of misunderstanding about obesity. People don’t understand the root causes of obesity because it’s complicated. Obesity isn’t about moral failure or will power. It is about your brain. 

Research shows Bariatric Surgery changes a person’s brain dramatically. Brain scans show key differences between the brains of people who struggle with obesity and people who don’t. Six months after Bariatric Surgery, the brain scans are the same. Bariatric Surgery changes your brain. That’s why 70% of people who have Bariatric Surgery and long-term follow up keep the weight off for at least 10 years.

Dr. Brown and Idaho BMI understand what it’s like to navigate the misunderstanding, misinformation, and struggle of living with obesity.

Prevention and personal safety are key. Be sure to follow CDC guidelines and to:  

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Practice social distancing
  • If you are sick, stay at home
  • Wear a face mask when you go out
  • Always cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow
  • Clean and sanitize frequently used surfaces daily

WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER

Despite the uncertainty we’re facing right now, we live in a day of hope and opportunity. Remember that today is the greatest time in history to be alive. Global crime rates are at historic lows. Infant mortality is the lowest ever. Our standard of living has never been better. Access to information is changing the world.

As we practice social distancing to reduce the spread of illness, let’s use this time to reconnect with our loved ones and rediscover the things that are most important in life. Fear and worry can be overcome by finding joy in the simple things and coming together as fellow humans.

Idaho BMI encourages you to eat healthy foods, get enough sleep, and live in the moment. We’re all in this together and will get through this together.

The rate of obesity has skyrocketed in a short period of time. So has the number of people with diabetes. The most common explanation for obesity and diabetes is overconsumption. That is a person eating too much food. We routinely hear the advice to eat less and move more as if the fundamental problem is like a simple math equation. The research over decades from a variety of scientific fields helps us more fully understand why some individuals struggle with weight their whole lives. To paint a more accurate picture of the real cause of obesity let’s consider a very interesting analogy. John F Kennedy Jr was the son of President John F Kennedy…

Over the last four decades as the obesity rate has skyrocketed dozens of studies have demonstrated that only 5% of morbidly obese individuals can lose weight and keep it off with diet and exercise. On the other hand about 70% of people who undergo bariatric surgery with long-term follow-up can lose the weight and keep it off.

A hundred years ago the rate of obesity in America was 4%. Today it is 40%. It is obvious that there is a connection between the foods we eat and obesity. What is far less recognized as the connection between obesity and the brain.

The employees of Idaho BMI hope all the mothers out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend.
