No One Does it Alone

A new study which found that people lost more weight in an online weight loss program when they participated in its more social aspects is nice to hear, but far from surprising. At Dr. Feiz & Associates, we're keenly aware that human beings are social animals and almost no one achieves their weight loss goals on their own. The more social support we receive during our weight loss efforts the better.

The fact of the matter is that, even with the help of an outstanding weight loss procedure such as a sleeve gastrectomy, permanent and significant weight loss requires a great deal of effort and commitment. Having the support of the people most important to us is, of course, a major help. At the same time, it's also not a bad thing to make new "weight loss buddies." There's definitely something about being able to compare notes with others who are undergoing a similar struggle.

Of  course, weight loss is also a great deal easier when our appetite for excessive food has been subdued. The combination of outstanding weight loss surgery in Los Angeles and social support from both those closest to us and more casual friends can be just about unbeatable.
