I am a huge advocate for diet and exercise. I think that in America, we don’t talk much about eating right and exercise. I believe that this issues should be discussed and implemented from the time children are born. But what about people who are already morbidly obese?
I have a friend who has a really bad heart. He has had problems with his weight since the time that he was a child. He is over 300 pounds and suffers from respiratory issues as a result of his weight. He has been offered the opportunity to have surgery such as the weight loss surgery tampa Florida offers at JourneyLite.
He hikes the Tennessee and North Carolina mountains and has just been accepted to Columbia University in New York. It pains us to see him struggle with his weight and the constant surgeries on his heart is adding to the problem.
I don’t believe that surgery is for everyone, but I don’t think that it can be ruled out across the board.
What are your thoughts on lap band surgery?
