Actress Chrissy Metz’s Thoughts on her Character's “This is Us” Weight Loss Journey Highlights the Realities of Bariatric Surgery, says Dr. Feiz & Associates
Date:1/25/2017

A January 9 article in the Hollywood Reporter features the thoughts of actress Chrissy Metz on her role on the popular NBC drama, “This is Us,” in which her character chooses to have a bariatric procedure. The actress, who says she will be losing weight herself for the role but who hasn’t commented on what method she’ll be using, notes that losing weight can be a highly complicated matter. Ms. Metz says that “I have friends and I know that when you do lose weight, you’re happy and it’s exciting but there are other things going on. There are other things that make us want to eat or overspend or fill a void with something.” Los Angeles area weight loss specialists Dr. Feiz & Associates note that, while weight loss procedures can make losing weight a great deal easier, they are a not a magic wand and patients still must change their mindset regarding a number of matters if they are to successfully defeat their obesity and move on to more happy and healthy life.

The weight loss specialists say that it is incorrect to say, as some do, that weight loss surgery is the “easy way out” of obesity. The fact of the matter, they note, is that defeating severe obesity is extremely difficult for the vast majority of patients without a procedure because the body is essentially designed to maintain its present weight. Indeed, a specific hormone, called ghrelin, is associated with the urge to eat that may not necessarily be connected to a physical need for food. The hormone appears to be produced in larger numbers by people with weight problems, and its production actually increases as we begin to lose weight, Dr. Feiz & Associates says. Fortunately, such procedures as the gastric sleeve appear to drastically reduce the production of the hormone, which is one major reason for the proven success of weight loss surgery, the clinic adds.

Dr. Feiz & Associates notes, however, that it’s never as simple as simply having a procedure. As Chrissy Metz points out, people who lose weight need to address a number of psychological issues because, once they have had a procedure, food needs to play a much smaller role in their life than previously. The clinic says that patients also often must deal with the reality that losing their weight may not solve all of the problems they had previously associated with their obesity. The clinic adds, however, that the right kind of counseling and social support can be tremendously helpful in helping patients deal with these matters.
