The Los Angeles based weight loss clinic comments on a recent article that obesity is now a serious worldwide health threat, even in countries rarely associated with the problem, and bariatric surgery is the best weapon that exists to fight it.

LOS ANGELES, May 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A May 17 article in The Local discusses

the rapidly rising numbers of weight loss surgeries being performed in France, which is ahead of both the U.S. and the U.K. in the percentage of its people who are obtaining procedures. Los Angeles based clinic Dr. Feiz & Associates says that this news points out the stereotypical and inaccurate way people – including many seriously overweight people – think about obesity. The clinic notes that the American stereotype of France when it comes to eating is that of a nation where portion control and moderate wine consumption is the rule and American fast food franchises are scoffed at. The reality, says the clinic, is that obesity is rapidly on the rise in France but, at least, the nation's policies make it possible for many people to obtain the only known medical intervention that can actually make defeating severe obesity a likely outcome.

Dr. Feiz & Associates says that increasingly few French men are able to fit as perfectly into a chic off-the-rack suit as slender President Emmanuel Macron, while perpetually willowy international superstars like Audrey Tautou are more exceptional than ever for a reason: All around the world, a very large number of human beings have an innate drive to overindulge in the face of nearly omnipresent fattening food. The clinic notes that it's now clear that even strong cultural biases against overindulgence and towards sensible eating habits can be overcome by the easy availability of fattening food. The clinic notes that France's choice to make weight loss surgeries less difficult to obtain may be by far the most sensible course in the long-run, saving both lives and healthcare costs.

A procedure such as a sleeve gastrectomy, says Dr. Feiz & Associates, works partly because it reduces the size of the stomach by 75 to 80 percent and makes overeating uncomfortable. It also works partly because the surgery reduces the body's production of hunger-stimulating hormones that tend to go into overdrive as people lose weight, accounting for the great difficulty people face even trying to lose 10 or 15 pounds, let alone 75 or 100. The clinic says that, right now, the statistics on successful weight loss for obese individuals remain as dismal as ever, while the factual backing for the efficacy of weight loss procedures continues to grow both in the U.S. and around the world
