New Study Confirms There’s No Such Thing as Fat But Fit

New York Bariatric Group Helps Obese Patients Lose Weight and Live Healthier Lives

New Hyde Park, NY – A new study from a team of Canadian researchers which 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 take action and fight 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 which 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, and 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.
