Unless you as obese as those people that are are unable to leave their houses and have to be forklifted out - I would not choose surgery.
Surgery - should be the very very last resort and furthermore - what is the long term prospect of surgery. After surgery you'll still be overweight and it may do very little to change your lifestyle - which is what is most likely causing you problems.
I know it is cliche but you need to look seriously at your diet and start exercising regularly. Work with your dietitian to come up with a diet and stick to it. By the way - the best diet is one that you can live on for the rest of your life.
And I would also seriously consider a working with a personal trainer if you can afford it. They can guide you as to the best fat burning exercises as some exercises (e.g. aerobics) though useful, are not the best for fat burning.
I suggest you take certain supplements to support your fat burning efforts.
First one is omega 3 fish oil. As a matter of fact, obese or not, this is one supplement everyone should be on daily -at least 3 grams. Make sure it is pharmaceutical grade fish oil as store brand fish oil tends to have a lot of impurities and gives you that fishy burp.
Pharmaceutical grade fish oil will help to metabolize fat and along with exercise, will help you drop fat faster than if you were just to exercise alone.
Make sure you are taking your antioxidants daily to help quench the free radicals that are elevated with regular exercise.
Drink whey protein. It will help to control your appetite and support muscle growth
Finally - make sure you are sleeping well. Bare minimum 6 hours of restful sleep daily but preferably 7- 8 hours. There are few things that can slow your metabolism as much as inadequate sleep. Sleep is critical not just for losing fat but for a healthy cardiovascular system as a whole.
Good luck Pinkkat
