What you know about weight loss is (probably) wrong.

Roughly 72% of Americans are either overweight or obese, and it’s a problem that is very misunderstood. The key is navigating through all the misinformation to really solve the puzzle of obesity. 

Weight loss is not about willpower. 

The real cause of obesity has more to do with a person’s brain and central nervous system than anything else. That is why dieting or exercise alone don’t work. So what’s the real cause?

Modern Foods

Modern foods trick the brain. They’ve detached the brain from the normal, healthy sensory feedback system in a person’s body. 

Guilt & Shame

Thoughts and feelings of guilt and shame, feeling like a failure, feeling judged – these are all part of the cause of obesity. 

Neurologic & Metabolic Disorientation 

The brain and the intestinal tract are constantly communicating, influencing, and controlling each other. Our feelings, emotions, and the foods we eat fundamentally change this connection.  

Putting the pieces together. 

The key to losing weight for good is retraining the brain so it reconnects to the normal, healthy sensory feedback system. Bariatric surgery does exactly this, but surgery alone is not the answer. 

Brain Over Belly will follow the journey of two women as they go through Dr. Brown and Idaho BMI’s comprehensive weight loss program from start to finish. Each month, you will hear about their challenges and progress as they put all the pieces together to solve the puzzle of obesity.  Find the Brain Over Belly podcast on Listen Boise or wherever you listen to audio.

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.
