A survey conducted by the State Department of Health of São Paulo shows that 80% of obese patients treated at the Group of Study and Treatment of Obesity (gesture), the service folder in the state capital, manage to keep the lost weight after undergoing nonsurgical treatment unit .

The study also showed that, in just four months, the loss is up to 5% of the total weight of the patient, which already guarantees improved agility, mobility and breathing. Of the total of 149 patients analyzed, who were between 31 and 76 years, 92% were women

Based on scientifically proven methods, the treatment offered by the gesture lasts two years and is held in groups that meet twice weekly with a multidisciplinary team, comprised of psychologists, nutritionists, nurses, physical education teachers and full-time physicians.

Treatment focuses on compulsion and urge to eat the obese. Thus, the weight loss becomes gradual and healthy, because it is obtained through sociability, physical activity, the nutritional education and understanding of your psychodynamics, says Maria Flora Almeida, coordinator of gesture.

Obesity is a disease plurimetabolic, multifactorial, and one of his markers oo is body mass index greater than 30. This index is calculated by dividing weight by height squared (BMI = W / H ²). In addition to lowering the quality and life expectancy, obesity increases the risk of diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart disease, stroke, and other problems that can lead to death.

Weight control achieved in 80% of cases that went through treatment is due to the continuity of physical activity and learned mainly to supply more suitable. This shows us that the main difficulty at baseline, which is the change in individual beliefs and magical means to lose weight fast, can be overcome and replaced by changes in lifestyle that promote the pleasure of being healthy, says Flora.

Treatment in Gesture is free and open to all obese patients. To participate, simply contact the phone 3329-4463 to schedule an interview with the team.
