 Margaret Furtado | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:01:00

If you or a love one is even THINKING about undergoing weight loss surgery (also known as Bariatric Surgery), then this may be one of the most important shows that you will listen to. ...With over 60% of the American population overweight or obese, many are turning to the option of Bariatric surgery. But is it the magic bullet that advertisers want us to believe? Recognized by the National Institutes of Health as a viable option for individuals who have been unable to lose weight using conventional medical methods, bariatric weight-loss surgery is a major gastrointestinal operation that results in weight loss primarily by limiting how much the stomach can hold. Other procedures not only limit food intake, they also decrease nutrient absorption. What most of us don't know is this: what happens AFTER the surgery is completed? Do you magically change, like the people in the the Ads? And on top of that, they still need to live a healthy, active lifestyle that includes lots of physical activity. Otherwise it is VERY possible to regain weight (which kinda defeats the purpose of the operation). Margaret Furtado, Dietitian and author of 'The Complete Idiots Guide to Eating Well after Weight Loss Surgery' will talk about what life is like post-surgery. We will also talk about the myth, the hype and reality of the Bariatric lifestyle. Regardless of your opinion of the subject, weight loss surgery isn't going anywhere, anytime soon. Tune it--- and let us know what YOUR opinion is on the subject.

What is Functional Training? Functional training is more “real world” in terms of your training actually mimicking a broader spectrum of your daily movements. Functional Training is useful whether you are an athlete or recreational exerciser wanting to improve general health. Functional Training gives you better balance and muscular control during everyday movements. For example, teaching yourself to balance in a neutral or static position with both feet on the ground is a great beginning; however, in the real world you need the ability to balance and maintain control during movement. The human body must be able to achieve and maintain balance in a variety of different positions, planes/angles, and conditions to be totally functional. “Functional balance” is dynamic just like real life.
