Weight Loss Surgery Success Story – South Africa

“It definitely has not been easy but it has been one of the best things I have ever done for myself”

One year ago I embarked on my weight loss journey in India. Mirage Team of Dr. helped me & I lost roughly 86-88 pounds. It definitely has not been easy but it has been one of the best things I have ever done for myself. I started this journey because of health issues I was having. I was told that I inherited my mother’s Degenerative Heart Disease, and the number one factor that would lead to an early death was being morbidly obese. Those were hard words to hear! My mother went through hell with her heart disease, two different open-heart surgeries, multiple angioplasty surgeries, and overall poor health. I talked with my mom and told her that I didn’t want to go down the same path she had and that I was going to take the steps necessary to ensure that I didn’t. She supported my decision 100%. Ironically today is the one-year anniversary of my (Gastric Bypass) weight loss surgery; it is also the two-month anniversary of the day we found my mother died from a massive heart attack. Here is to continue to live the best and healthiest life I can for many many years to come!*.

Thank Mirage Team and Dr. for changing my life.

    With hypothyroidism, the body gains weight. How to lose weight if suffering from this condition?
    Does it make difficult to lose weight or is it even possible?

    Why it’s great to see someone with the same starting weight as me and had a gastric bypass. Can I ask you why did you choose to do a Bypass and not the Sleeve? I am having trouble picking one of them. I can’t wait to drop to a normal weight and get back to the gym, right now I can’t even walk for more than 20 mins 🙁 Best of luck on your toning journey!

    To lose weight- a balanced diet, control portions, and a good workout can do wonders for people. But when you have hypothyroidism, the underactive thyroid gland plays a major role. When you develop hypothyroidism, your metabolism slows down. Your calories start to stick, and you start gaining weight. People suffer from the inability to lose weight.

    here are some diet tips that will help you. It is difficult to lose weight with this condition but not impossible

    Emphasis on balanced food- The diet for a hypothyroid patient should be nutritionally balanced to aid in recovery from nutritional deficiencies like selenium and iodine, which hamper thyroid functioning in the body.

    Eat complex crabs- Complex contains fibers which will keep you full without having much and stop you from overeating. Therefore it is essential to include whole cereals, vegetables, whole pulses in your diet.

    Add Selenium and iodine. Iodine plays an important role in the synthesis of the thyroid hormone and Selenium helps in recycling of iodine by the body. Natural sources of selenium and iodine include seafood, Brazil nuts, eggs, tuna, salmon, sunflower seeds and plants grown in sodium-rich soil etc.

    Other nutrients that boost thyroid functions like Zinc, Riboflavin, Niacin, and vitamin E, are available in abundance in green leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts, and whole cereals.
    Restrict foods with high glycemic index, such as corn, white bread, refined flour, muffins, cakes, rich desserts etc. because these cause excess glucose in the blood, which gets converted into fat.

    Goitrogens are substances that suppress the functioning of the thyroid gland by interfering and blocking enzymes that allow thyroid to use iodine. This leads to enlargement of the thyroid (goiter) gland because the gland starts producing more cells to counter the deficit. The goitrogens-rich foods should not be avoided completely as they provide a lot of nutrition too.

    Can weight loss possible without a proper diet?
    My profession is such that I can’t stick to just healthy eating. I travel a lot and eat anything available.
    How can I lose weight If I am not able to manage my diet?
