Alongside the question of whether organic food may or may not allow you to lose more weight, there is also the question of whether you should be eating organic food for your general health. And the answer to both is… it depends. Just as with any decision about food, so much depends on your particular circumstances and your goals.
Coffee house favorites often come with empty calories and a growling stomach. Adding protein as the base of your latte, frothed just like you like it, means your morning, or afternoon, espresso is also your needed protein.
In the mid 2000s, a novel approach to weight loss surgery was developed in the form of adjustable gastric banding. The first product to market was a band known as the Lap-Band and shortly after the Realize Band came in as competition. The gastric band was both new and very promising because it gave patients and adjustable and removable option that did not require permanent adjustment of the G.I. system. In essence, the band is placed around the upper portion of the stomach and tightened to form two stomach chambers. The smaller, upper chamber was the new receptacle for food and the band slowed the passage of food from the upper to the stomach. Patients would be limited in the amount they could eat, would feel full longer and ultimately lose weight.
