San Antonio, Texas – October 6, 2016 – The latest statistics for San Antonio, TX suggest that over 31% of residents suffer from obesity problems, placing us higher than the national average. “If you are a resident of San Antonio and have felt disappointed about the remarks of basketball stars making fun of our community, it’s time to do something about it.”
The reasons for the increasing obesity rates are many. Busy lives often deter the people from making time for exercise and healthful cooking. Many families resort to fast food or frozen pizzas for dinner. The availability of highly-processed foods has taken the place of healthful snack options. And video games and cell phone activities have taken the place of riding bikes, hide-and-go-seek and imagination activities outside. As a result, adults and children alike in Bear County are suffering the consequences of these unhealthful habits, including diabetes, heart disease, lung problems, joint problems, chronic pain, and cancer.
Making changes in daily lives is never easy, but in many cases, the right changes can save the life. Diet and lifestyle changes are critical, but most people need support in these efforts. Additionally, many people need further interventions, such as those provided by programs like Sage Bariatric. Sage Bariatric offers both surgical and non-surgical weight loss support. Their team of medical doctors, weight loss surgeons, nurse practitioners and dietitians work together to help every patient lose weight and regain their health. Dr. Monica Anz-Cavazos, director of Sage Bariatric, reports, “Losing weight is one of the most difficult tasks people are faced with. With our tools and support, we can help make that process more successful for many people.”
