How do I lose weight ?
Are you struggling with weight management? It’s not an easy task to maintain your weight and the difficulty is compounded by the fact that many people are overweight these days. This has major health consequences, both physically and mentally. Overweight will take a toll on your body in terms of physical well-being as well as mental health.
Managing your stress levels to lose weight
Stress activates hormones like cortisol and adrenaline that initially decrease the hunger as part of the body’s fight or flight response However, when the constant stress, cortisol can remain in the bloodstream for longer, which will increase their hunger and potentially increase to them eating more.
Cortisol signals the need to provide the body’s nutritional stores from the carbohydrate’s preferred fuel source.
Insulin transports the sugar from carbohydrates from the blood to the muscles and brain. If a person does not use this sugar in fight or flight, the body will store it as fat.
Research shows that implementing an 8-week stress-management intervention program resulted in a considerable reduction in the BMI (body mass index) of overweight and obese children and adolescents.
Some methods of managing stress include:
- Meditation, Yoga, or tai chi
- Relaxation and breathing techniques
- Spending some time outdoors, like gardening or walking
These things will help you with weight loss. If you don’t notice any change, Bariatric surgery is the best option for you. Before this weight loss surgery, you need to consider lots of things.
Balancing gut bacteria
Research is focused on the function of bacteria in the gut in weight management. The human gut hosts a wide variety and number of microorganisms, including around 37 trillion bacteria.
Everyone has different amounts and varieties of bacteria in their gut. Some can increase the amount of energy that the person harvests from food, increase the weight gain, and fat deposition.
Some foods can increase the good bacteria in the gut, including:
A wide variety of plants: Increase the number of vegetables, fruits, and grains in the diet will increase fiber uptake and a more different gut bacteria set. People also try to ensure that vegetables and other plant-based foods comprise 75 percent of their meals.
Fermented foods: It enhances the function of good bacteria while inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria. Kimchi, sauerkraut, kefir, tempeh, yogurt, and miso all contain adequate probiotics, increasing good bacteria. Researchers noticed that kimchi widely. The study also suggested that it has anti-obesity effects—the study also showed that kefir might help promote weight loss in overweight women.
Prebiotic foods: They stimulate the activity and growth of some good bacteria that aid weight control. Prebiotic fiber gets in many fruits and vegetables, artichoke, especially chicory root, onion, garlic, leeks, asparagus, banana, and avocado. It is also in grains, like oats and barley.

What is stomach stapling?
Stomach stapling is the VBG (vertical banded gastroplasty). A gastroplasty is a surgical process that decreases the size of your stomach.
While stomach stapling surgery, the surgeon creates a small stomach pouch and separates it from the stomach’s rest via surgical staples.
An opening about a dime’s size is left between the two stomach areas to move the pouch into a larger stomach area.
In the original stomach stapling procedure, use only staples to create the pouch. VBG was developed a little later.
VBG band is used to separate the stomach pouch from the rest of your stomach, in addition to staples. That makes the separation stronger and a little more permanent.
Because your fresh stomach pouch can hold only 1 to 2 ounces of food, you get full quickly and eat less than you usually would. As a result, you take in some calories. That, in turn, increases weight loss.
Since the pouch is created using the staples without removing your stomach, you can reverse stomach stapling by taking the staples out.

My sister had surgery today. Most of the staff were great especially the young man that drives the shuttle cart. The nurse told me only one person co go back to see her after her surgery. So I told my niece to go. But the next nurse came out and called for the Garza family and three family members went back. What happened to the only one person can go back at a time. Very bad customer service.
I had both total knee replacement surgeries at STSH. Pre-registration both times were a breeze however it did take a little time. The surgeon, the anesthesiologist, the entire surgical team ARE the best. Recovery and physical therapy was fine. Good food as well. My second surgery the overnight nurse on my last night had poor bedside manner. Also the bandage she placed on my knee was to small. Looks like she was to lazy to go get the longer one. The discharge nurse was great.
I have had many surgeries and am so impressed with this hospital. I was asked thorough questions during preadmit that I have never been asked. The staff is excellent, both professional and very kind. Yvette and Sam need gold stars for rr trips, everthing!! Wendy and Susan,yes!!
I have had multiple procedures here. I’ve worked in the medical field for 27 years; I’m exceptionally picky. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The nurses are intelligent, pleasant and caring. If you had a negative experience here, chances are you’re the problem.
Nurses and Doctor where so great the best staff,I was so nervous about my procedure they were able to make me feel comfortable, the staff here are very professional and knowledgeable.
I had a great experience. Pre-registration did take a little but but they warn you about that up front. My pre-op (Nelda) and post op (Melissa) nurses were amazing and made sure I was comfortable and taken care of. Thanks for the great service and bed side manners STSH!

Thank you all for your support & guidance thru my recovery.See you soon…shoulder replacement next!!
I was pleasantly surprised by how professional and courteous the staff at South Texas Surigical Hospital facility was during my recent visit (June 2012) for a routine medical screening procedure. Instead of being treated like a number, I was treated with respect. Almost every employee I met – from the guy driving the courtesy golf cart around the parking lot to the doctor – was attentive, listened to my needs and seemed to value me as a customer. The place was very new and clean. The waiting rom was full of windows and plants and did not have TVs blaring. I was able to find a chair in the corner near an electric outlet where I charged my phone while surfing the net during the 30 minutes or so that I waited. After leaving the waiting room, I went to pre-op and immediately got wheeled into the operating room.
My son had eye surgery and he was taken care very well
