Super Bowl Sunday the 2nd Biggest Day for Excessive Eating and Overindulgence

New York Bariatric Group Provides Long Term Weight Loss Solutions Through Safe & Innovative Types of Bariatric Surgery

New Hyde Park, NY  – Super Bowl Sunday is the favorite unofficial holiday of the year for hundreds of millions of Americans. Alarmingly though, it’s also a day for excessive eating and overindulgence, ranking 2nd only to Thanksgiving in terms of food consumption according to the American Institute of Food Distribution.

The New York Bariatric Group wants to educate the public not only of the excessive levels of calories which can consumed in one day, but that also for many people this is more than a once per year binge, but a regular or semi-regular occurrence which they may not even realize.

The Super Bowl Sunday snacking statistics are staggering. For instance, the average American Super Bowl watcher will take in 1,200 calories during the game through snacking alone, equaling 33 billion pounds of snacks being consumed across the nation. That accounts to over 27 billion calories and 1.8 billion grams of fat just from potato chips!

There are ways to combat the extravagance though. Veggie trays, fresh salsa, and low calorie soft drinks can all help to shave off that excess intake. Staying active by getting up off the couch and taking walks can also help to counteract the indulgence.

Compulsive eaters who are the most susceptible to more regular binges such as occurs over Super Bowl Sunday may be qualified for weight loss surgery.

Weight loss surgery is now covered by many insurance policies, providing a realistic avenue for individuals facing obesity and related health issues to change their life for the better, quickly and dramatically. It’s also proven to provide the best results and success rate for long term weight loss.

Recovery times and other associated issues with bariatric surgery have also been vastly improved. Today, procedures such as the gastric sleeve and Lap-Band can be performed through one virtually scarless single incision via laparoscopic surgery.

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.
