Weight-loss surgery is stomach surgery, not brain surgery.
Did you know that 40 percent of bariatric surgery patients regain weight within five years of having weight-loss surgery? When it comes to long-term weight-loss surgery success, you've got to get a handle on your emotions and motivation. The food will always be there, and it's not about knowing what to eat, but instead about transforming your relationship with food. This is why conquering your mind-set is essential. If you are not in the right headspace, you can slide backward and enter the danger zone of regaining weight.
Unfortunately, the cravings, emotional impulses, and habits to eat whatever and whenever still pop up after surgery. Even with the knowledge of what to eat, you will also need to learn how to manage yourself and your mind-set around food. Fancy meal plans won't help you if you haven't tackled the most difficult part of having weight-loss surgery: your brain!
After investing so much time to get your body where you want it, is having the wrong mind-set worth the risk of sabotaging all you've worked hard to achieve?
