Losing Weight with a Gastric Balloon in Cheshire

Choosing to lose weight is a long term process. You aren’t going to lose weight over night – even if you have seen adverts that promise you will. Depending on your current weight and lifestyle, losing weight can take months or even years. Keeping that weight off is a life-long process. Losing weight takes a change in lifestyle, and a determination to stick to that lifestyle change. A gastric balloon can help you get started in changing your lifestyle, and starting out on your weight loss journey. Allure Weight Loss are gastric balloon specialists, based in Cheshire, but active all over the country. Let us help you start losing weight, today.

Ways to Lose Weight

The most effective way to lose weight is to eat less and exercise more. This sounds much simpler than it is. Most people are overweight not because they are unaware of this idea, but because they do not live a lifestyle that is conducive to losing weight. Traditionally, the weight loss industry has been built around personal willpower as the main way to lose weight. This means that it is exclusively up to you to stop yourself from eating. However, being overweight is often associated with a range of other mental health issues. Telling a person trying to lose weight that it is a simple case of willpower means that when they inevitably fail to lose weight as quickly as they might have been promised, it is their fault for not trying hard enough, or having the requisite will power. This in turn can worsen the emotional reasons for over-eating.

How does a Gastric Balloon Work?

A gastric balloon can start you off on the path to changing your lifestyle and eating habits. When you get a gastric balloon fitted in our Cheshire centre, you get a helping hand on the journey to losing weight. An Allurion Balloon is a silicon balloon that enters your stomach, filling it partially. We fill the balloon with water, so that it inflates. The inflated balloon then stays in your stomach for a length of 4, 6, 8 or 12 months, depending on how long you need the help for. As the balloon partially fills your stomach, you feel fuller, as if you had already eaten. During this time, you can learn to eat less and change your lifestyle more easily.
