Have a Happy Holiday, Really!

We've been writing a fair amount in recent weeks about food and the holiday. It's only natural for those of us caught up in the obesity epidemic to focus on all the high calorie/low nutrition holiday treats we're supposed to avoid and think about more healthy alternatives. It's likely, however, that the real problem is that, whether we're overeating or trying our hardest not to overeat, we're still focusing far too much on food.

Here's the thing, the reason that weight loss surgery has been so successful in fighting obesity, type 2 diabetes, and all the other health issues that go with it, is that it it actually helps rewire our minds so that our focus moves off of food and onto other things.

Without surgery, it's often a lot easier said than done, but it really is worthwhile to do our best to focus on all the non-food oriented joys of the holiday. Believe it or not, there are plenty of wonderful things in the world that have zero calories. Whether your favorite non-caloric pleasure is playing Santa for the kids, spending time with your favorite people, going up to the mountains for your favorite snowbound activities, or simply checking out all the big new holiday movies, most of the best things in life are completely free of calories. Even if you slip a bit and end up consuming food more than you'd hoped to this Christmas, make sure you focus less on that and more on simply having a wonderful holiday.

Of course, you're weight is an important aspect of your overall health happiness. If you're unhappy with your present situation and are seriously interested in learning more about weight loss surgery in California, feel free to contact the office of Dr. Feiz & Associates at 310-855-8058.
