Is There An Easy Way For Men Who Consider Themselves Obese To Lose Weight?

Whether we like it or not, the public’s perception of us is initially based on what we look like. Entire studies have been devoted to how an individual’s appearance plays a large role in their personality and confidence levels.

Our society also tends to create a quick opinion of an individual even before they have spoken a word to them. The way they dress, their grooming, their appearance of health, etc all play a part in what that opinion looks like. Studies have shown that attractive people are treated differently, for example, they are hired and promoted more frequently and often have higher salaries.

Today we are going to talk about obese men or men who think they are fat and are unhappy with their appearance. Men who may desire better health, a better paying job, a relationship, or any goal they feel their weight is standing in the way of them reaching. We will discuss a few effective and easy options for a man to lose weight and keep it off. Losing weight will not only improve a man’s health but will also boost his self-confidence and can also improve his quality of life.

Do Men Ever Worry About How They Look?

According to a joint poll published by the Wall Street Journal consisting of 1000 men originating from the United States and The United Kingdom, men rate themselves an average of 5.9 out of 10 when asked about how they feel about their body image. 37% of the respondents rated themselves even lower.

One of the biggest body image issues the poll recorded was about how much they weighed and the more they weighed, the lower they ranked themselves. Most of these participants were not obese fat men, but about 40% of them stated that looking in the mirror was a major contributor to their issues with body image followed by 38% who named their health as adding to their unhappiness with their appearance, and 27% reporting that social media made them feel bad about the way they looked.

Another interesting note was that over half of the men questioned admitted to feeling pressured to have a “superhero” body. So ladies, if you thought you cornered the market on body image concerns, it seems like the men are feeling it too!

Looking like Captain America may be a bit of a stretch when it comes to an attainable goal, but if you are a man who thinks he is fat or you are unhappy with your appearance, there are some attainable solutions that can help you lose weight and improve your health.

What Are Some Easy Ways For An Obese Man To Lose Weight?

Trying to lose weight on your own is never easy and obese individuals who attempt to do it alone are rarely successful. Studies have proven that once a person’s BMI (body mass index) reaches the range of obese, there is a less than 5% chance they will be able to lose enough weight on their own to reach a healthy BMI level. There are not really easy ways to lose weight but there are “easier” ways than trying to do it on your own.

Losing weight is not ever easy, it is hard and it takes dedication and a strong desire to become healthier. However, making the decision to lose weight is easy and the first step you need to take.

The Three Critical Steps To Achieve Success With Weight Loss

Step 1 – Commit to losing weight to become healthier
Deciding to lose weight is the easiest step in your weight loss journey but is also the most important because it is the first step you are taking toward your goal. It is vital to remember that the size of your steps is not as important as the fact that you are moving forward and will eventually reach your goal.
Step 2 – Put Your Goals In Writing
Write down your goals and add as much detail as you want. It is recommended that you write short-term and long-term goals. Then make sure you list all the reasons why you wish to attain these goals. Then post this list somewhere so you can see it every day. Stay focused on these goals.

This might seem like an insignificant exercise however, having this to refer to will make a big difference during your weight loss journey. You will have times when you want to quit or you may become discouraged and focusing your attention once again on your reasons WHY you should hang in there can be very powerful.

Step 3 – Get Help
Losing weight is not as overwhelming when you have help. Today, there are some easier options available than bariatric surgery that can help individuals safely and effectively lose a significant amount of weight. Choose a highly skilled obesity-trained professional like Dr. Steven Batash MD who is among the world’s leading experts on nonsurgical weight loss procedures to oversee your customized weight loss program.

Choosing the team you trust to support you during your weight loss journey will be instrumental in your results.

What Non-Surgical Weight Loss Solutions Are There For Obese Men?

At Batash Endoscopic Weight Loss Center we offer personalized comprehensive patient care by carefully evaluating each patient and identifying how we can best assist them to reach their weight loss goals.

Endoscopic weight loss procedures do not require any incisions or hospital time so patients can heal faster and resume their normal routines. Another advantage of non-surgical weight loss is it might be a good option for a patient such as a morbidly obese man who may not qualify for bariatric surgery.

Endoscopic weight loss procedures that are available at Batash Endoscopic Weight Loss Center in New York City include the following:

The Orbera Weight Loss Balloon

The purpose and goals of the Orbera balloon weight loss program are for the patient to break their unhealthy eating habits and to form new life-long habits that will promote weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. These new habits will consist of choosing nutrient-rich foods in the correct portions and incorporating daily exercise into their lives.

Through the use of an endoscope, and while the patient is comfortably sedated, a deflated Orbera balloon is placed into the patient’s stomach. The Orbera gastric balloon works to help the patient lose weight because it is inflated with a solution of sterile saline until it reaches about the size of a grapefruit. The balloon will take up a significant amount of space in the patient’s stomach which will inhibit the patient from eating a large amount of food during one meal. The balloon will also make the patient feel full longer and keep hunger pangs at bay.

For the first 6 months of the program, the Orbera balloon stays in the patient’s stomach as they are forming new portion control habits and learning about the importance of eating the right kinds of foods. Patients are also supported by a host of other professionals who work with them on physical exercise, diet & nutrition, behavioral health, etc.

After the balloon is removed, if the patient continues to utilize their extensive support system and practice their new lifestyle habits they will be able to reach their goal weight and maintain it.

According to the BMI chart, a male who is 6’2 and weighs 242 pounds is considered classified as an obese man. Check out this YouTube short of our patient and his tremendous weight loss in only 6 months using the Orbera balloon.

Suture Sculpt ESG

The non-surgical endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (Suture Sculpt ESG) procedure is an excellent tool that can help patients lose weight and keep it off. Similar to gastric sleeve surgery, the patient’s stomach is made smaller but instead of removing a portion of the patient’s stomach, it is reduced by using sutures to reshape it and hold it in place. This non-surgical approach is associated with fewer risks and complications and also offers a fast recovery.

Suture Sculpt works for weight loss because the patient is unable to eat too much at one time. Their stomach capacity has been reduced to approximately 75% of the original size and they are no longer able to ingest as much food. The smaller stomach size also causes the stomach to empty more slowly and the patient does not get hungry as often.

When patients undergo a Suture Sculpt procedure, eat a healthy balanced diet, and incorporate exercise into their daily routine they can lose an average of 60% of their excess body weight. (Current body weight – Goal body weight = excess body weight that should be lost)

Many of our patients have experienced tremendous weight losses after undergoing Suture Sculpt ESG and have transformed their bodies from having an obese man belly into a slimmer but masculine physique.

See for yourself! This patient slimmed down 82 pounds in just 5 months after his Suture Sculpt ESG procedure!

Resculpt – The Bariatric Revision Procedure

Sometimes life happens, and people stray from their newly formed habits experiencing weight gain after undergoing bariatric surgery. By the time they realize they have been overeating, their stomach has stretched out and the restrictive capabilities of the surgery have been rendered ineffective.

We understand, and we are here to help you get back on track. The non-surgical Resculpt procedure can repair this type of damage and restore the results of your previous surgery. You will be losing weight and moving in the right direction again in no time.

Patients are completely supported by our comprehensive OnTrack Lifestyle program to help promote further weight loss and get them looking and feeling their best.

Prescription Weight Loss Medications

Weight loss medications when used in conjunction with a non-surgical weight loss procedure such as Suture Sculpt ESG, offer patients an almost 26% boost in weight loss potential.

Batash Endoscopic Weight Loss Center offers prescription medication as part of a non-surgical, patient-personalized, and medically supervised weight loss program accompanying the Orbera weight loss balloon or Suture Sculpt ESG procedures.
