  • Research explores life after weight-loss surgery | Research Matters
    it is to have that disappear That was one of the things we were interested in does fat stigma disappear when the weight disappears or does suffering endure in some other form Playing against a stacked deck Obesity is a complex problem that s both incredibly personal and painfully public If you carry excess weight you cannot hide it You also cannot escape the near constant assault of public health announcements telling you everything you re doing wrong friends and family who may want to help you or simply push you to work harder and an environment that simultaneously condemns fat in all its forms and encourages behaviors that result in weight gain One of the staff at Mayo Clinic talks to patients about the messaging you get in terms of if you re stressed and you re female you should go eat a tub of ice cream If you re stressed and you re a male of a certain age you should go to a bar says Trainer There s such a bombardment of consumption oriented emotional eating messages What Trainer is describing is one component of the obesogenic environment This environment is one of the reasons that the common advice that overweight people receive eat less move more is acutely unhelpful The real truth is that the idea of fixing obesity through sheer willpower is largely false One aspect of American culture is we highly value work and dedication and doing things independently for ourselves says Wutich This whole cultural discourse around fat is wrapped up in these larger American values about independence and work So if you have a large body then you should be able to fix it by yourself and you should work harder and harder to do that I think the scientific evidence increasingly indicates that that s really a set of cultural ideas that s not really how it works if you want to lose weight No matter their willpower most adults in the U S today have to work for a living That work often requires long hours of sitting still Exercise and cooking at home consumes time that people could use to make money take care of children or elderly parents or finish their education Many U S cities are not designed for walking or biking safely and gym memberships are costly And then of course there are all those consumption messages Trainer spoke of The odds are stacked against weight loss no matter how hard you work Even if a person succeeds in losing weight keeping it off is another story Research shows that the theoretically simple formula eat less move more is not even an accurate picture of how weight is really gained or lost For instance in order to maintain weight loss a person who has been obese must consume significantly fewer calories a day than a person who weighs the same but has never been overweight according to Rudolph Leibel co director of the New York Obesity

  • Relieving pain without pills | Research Matters
    ASU for the past 15 years studying chronic pain Her research funded by the NIH has led to the development of new pain management interventions While patients like Zeig may never be cured of their chronic pain there are healthy and effective ways to treat it besides addictive painkillers The impetus is to try and help people improve the quality of their lives Davis says Mind over pain Through randomized clinical trials involving patients with chronic back pain or fibromyalgia Davis has compared three different pain management approaches All of them have proven to be effective The first intervention is education giving people information about their pain and where it comes from Knowing how the condition is related to sleep or nutrition can help a patient better manage their pain People experience a boost simply by getting information Davis says Knowledge really is power Another intervention called cognitive behavioral therapy helps patients change the way they think about their pain experience This is important since living with pain can often feel hopeless After Zeig went to rehab to break her opioid addiction she had to learn to manage her pain without pills She experienced first hand how easy it is to become a victim of one s own pain I was so focused on the pain I was trapped by it Zeig says I felt like I was always going to be in pain and there wasn t any way out Cognitive behavioral therapy aims to prevent this type of thinking or catastrophising which Davis says can make the pain feel even worse Her research shows that if patients can identify when they re stuck in that negative mindset they can learn to change their thoughts and behaviors This helps them manage their pain more effectively and feel less hopeless That could mean making a decision to distract themselves from the pain by relaxing in a warm bath for example or calling a friend Rather than thinking that the pain will be horrible forever which tends to make the situation worse a person might try thinking I know that this is just a flare and it will get better soon Davis says I was so focused on the pain I was trapped by it I felt like I was always going to be in pain and there wasn t any way out The third intervention called mindfulness mediation involves regulating one s emotions Rather than responding to pain in a reflexive way like automatically taking painkillers patients can learn to make those decisions consciously When we feel pain we might decide okay well I m going to take an opiate or I m going to stay in bed today in a kind of automatic way without really considering all of our options first Davis says If patients can interrupt that automatic behavior they might assess their pain and make a different choice such as focusing on something positive that they want to experience that day or deciding to pay attention
