Some Extreme ways of Weight Loss

1. Stomach stapling for very obese people:

People who are too obese and have no other option left can try stomach stapling. In this, a pouch is created in the stomach and around one ounce of food this pouch can hold. But this is very risky method. It would be better to try other methods. But if nothing works then one can go for this. But it has risk of severe stomach infection. Try some methods which are minimally invasive.

2. Liposuction:

Some people want the fats to be sucked away. Thus such people opt for liposuction. In this incision is made and then a tube is inserted and the tube has to go down. This tube sucks the layer of fat. But it can lead to bruising and thus it should be done only under supervision of a popular and reputed surgeon.

3. Appetite curbing medications:

Market is flooded with many medications that would suppress your appetite and thus remove your need to eat food. You won’t feel hungry at all. But mind well, such medications are addictive in nature and they tend to problems like blood pressure, sleep problems, palpitations and immune system compromise.

4. Use of laxatives almost everyday:

You should rely on your natural feel of going to the toilet. It is not safe to take laxatives everyday. Some people push the food out even while it has not been absorbed properly in the body and they think that it would make them thinner. Well, it is risky and it would also cause fluid loss in the body.
