facing overweight problem

I have been facing overweight problem since the last 18 years.Iam now 38 years old and weigh 140kgs. I have tried everything Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Allopathy, etc, though i have partially lost weight, i have regained more than what i have lost.Iam tired of dieting, exercise, yoga,etc?Is there any surgery which helps people to come in shape, as overweight shape is creating problems in my marital life, job problem, family problems, lack of self confidence and self esteem? Please help me...

First of all, surgery doesn't help you get "in shape". It only removes your fat so you look thinner, but on the inside, you still may have a high body fat percentage. Surgery is overrated and you should be exercising and only eating 1500 calories a day if you want to lose the weight. Walk 3 miles a day or so, and if you don't get tired, try running slightly.

 

You could try Biggest Loser. You lose weight the healthy way and gain confidence like you should, not because you had surgery and only look healthier after.

If you have tried all pathies then opt for running half an hour a day and avoid fats and carbohydrates. let it join with a stern will to loose . have trifla at night and medhohar guggul 2 tds. what about thyroid.

140 kgs is grossly overwieght. Medicines like Orlistat and Sibutrim help to lose weight; but may not be of much help to you. I suggest you should undergo Bariatric Surgery like Gastric Banding orGastric Bypass to shedd your extra kgs first.Once you have lost the weight we can go Plastic Surgeries like Tummy tucks, Liposuctions, thigh and arm lifts to get you back in shape.
