Dr. Feiz Proves to be a Pioneer in the Battle Against Obesity

Obesity continues to reach record levels across the globe, making the work of the first-rate team at Dr. Feiz & Associates more essential than ever.

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- At the offices of Dr. Feiz & Associates, patients can find a surgeon who is dedicated to exhausting every option for weight loss, including sleeve gastrectomy and lap band Los Angeles. For those who qualify for a lap band or sleeve gastrectomy for Valencia or anywhere throughout LA, Dr. Feiz won't rest until his patients have conquered obesity. He's even an expert in the revision weight loss procedure to convert band to sleeve.While the skill and experience of Dr. Feiz has always been impressive, the doctor's work is only expected to become more appreciated as obesity keeps pace as an increasingly devastating issue in the US and around the globe.

A new study from the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) has found that over one-third of all adults across the world is overweight or suffers from obesity. The ODI report looks at how efforts to improve world hunger have been offset by poor dietary choices that are on the rise in newly developing countries. The effect has been an erosion in "traditional hunger", replaced by unhealthy diets consisting of fats, sugars and meats.

One prime factor in the rise of fatty diets and obesity found by researchers is rising incomes and the sedentary, urban lifestyle that often comes with it. This trend is particularly evident in the US, where over one-third (35.7%) of adults are obese, and obesity-related conditions like heart disease and stroke remain leading causes of preventable death. As the trend toward obesity comes to affect more people, it brings into focus the important work of Dr. Feiz and his team.

"There seems to be little will among the public and leaders to take the determined action that is needed to influence future diets, but that may change in the face of the serious health implications," write researchers in their report. While there may be truth to that on a large scale, Dr. Feiz and his team of medical and weight loss professionals are proof that there are certainly many people for whom safe, sustainable weight loss is very much a priority.
