Many who start the weight loss journey think all they have to focus on is eating less, or counting calories, or hopping on the treadmill a few times a week. However, bariatric surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz recommends his patients learn not just about healthy eating and exercise, but that they also study how to make positive changes in their lives. Any patient of Dr. Feiz' must pass a psychological exam before they have weight loss surgery in Los Angeles at his practice, as well as have regular counseling. Why? Because often, food is a vice for overweight or obese individuals.
Dr. Feiz & Associates strongly urge overweight individuals to study how to make behavioral changes in order to lose weight effectively, and keep it off for good. Positive affirmations every day are a good start, and stopping the excuses to put off weight loss. Dr. Feiz also recommends that weight loss patients continue counseling once they reach their goal weight; as many people find it easier to lose weight than to maintain a healthy weight.
