Motivation Critical to Success of Medical Weight-Loss Programs

“Personal commitment, motivation and a strong desire to ‘enjoy’ one’s new lifestyle” are the true ingredients driving the success of any medical weight-loss program, according to surgeon, Mustafa Ahmed, MD, of Southern Nevada Bariatrics . “Gastric surgery is simply a tool. To achieve permanent weight loss and overall improved health, a patient must willingly commit to life-long changes in nutrition and exercise habits,” emphasized Dr. Ahmed, who is board-certified in internal medicine, surgery and surgical critical care.

Dr. Ahmed’s comments follow release of several recent weight-loss studies, all indicating the long-term success of surgical interventions in treating obesity, a chronic disease.

A study published in May of this year (2017) in the International Society for Microbial Ecology Journal determined that a common surgical therapy to reduce the size of the stomach – Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) – generated a highly diverse, healthy community of microbes in a patient’s gut. This new, microbial milieu may be responsible, at least in part, for helping surgical patients maintain weight loss for long periods of time, scientists said. Low diversity of gut-dwelling bacteria is associated with obesity, as well as with a variety of other diseases, including ulcerative colitis and inflammatory bowel disease.
