New Hyde Park, NY – A new study from a team of Canadian researchers that pours over data from multiple previous studies confirms that there’s no such thing as “fat but fit”. Not only is such a claim misleading, but it’s also dangerous, encouraging unhealthy, obese individuals to be idle as opposed to taking action and fighting against their condition.

Individuals who are obese have been statistically linked to having greatly enhanced risks and occurrences of a variety of dangerous and deadly illnesses and conditions, including high blood pressure and cholesterol, heart attack, stroke, and more. People with higher Body Mass Index (BMI) numbers almost always have comorbidities that negatively impact their health and their lifestyle, and may quite literally take off years or even decades of their lives.

At the New York Bariatric Group, that has been a core belief of the practice, and today, many more primary care physicians are also thankfully beginning to recognize this fact and provide referrals for obese patients to receive bariatric surgery.

Other studies which claimed to prove that there was such a thing as healthy obesity perhaps looked at skewed numbers. For instance, a young male with lots of muscle mass would have a high BMI due to his bodyweight, but would clearly not be in the same classification as another individual who was obese, and not overly muscle-bound.

The New York Bariatric Group offers a comprehensive collection of the most innovative and successful types of bariatric surgery, including laparoscopic banding, gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass revisional surgery, and more.

In tandem with their comprehensive support and educational system and an ongoing bariatric program for patients both pre- and post-surgery, NYBG patients enjoy phenomenal success, both immediately and over the long haul as well.

On average, NYBG patients benefit from a permanent weight loss of between 50 and 75 percent of their excess weight.

Everybody treated me like a king. The day of surgery, I was excited. The hospital couldn’t be any nicer. I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man. My recovery was awesome.

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.

I feel like a completely different person.

I had the gastric sleeve procedure. The driving factor behind me getting this procedure was my health. I didn't feel good physically or mentally. I had joint pains, even standing was difficult sometimes. Emotionally, this surgery completely turned my life around. I have so much more confidence. So much more happiness. I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger. I feel able to accomplish more.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.

I am totally comfortable in my own skin.

I think I always grew up identifying myself as less than other people because I was fat. I decided to tackle that and just live my life. I had a sleeve gastrectomy. It changed how I view myself. How I communicate with people. I'm able to be much more of myself and live the life I always thought I should have been living. I am totally comfortable in my own skin. You have the tools you need to succeed here.
