It’s the lazy way out, of course your going to lose weight. I would be embarrassed to say I got one and was fat enough to even get one.

Patients with morbid obesity are more likely to have mental health problems than the general population anyway, so we see a higher prevalence of mental illness diagnoses prior to bariatric surgery," Dr Bhatti told Medscape Medical News.

"Mental problems" who knew? LOL

In order to qualify for bariatric surgery, patients need to have a Body Mass Index (BMI) higher than 40, or more than 100 pounds overweight. Now that is chunky he he

First off, weight loss surgery is calorie restriction (unfortunately it's also malnutrition). Anything that's done through the surgery can be done through limiting caloric intake. It's a starvation diet.

Second, the surgery is easier for the patient, otherwise they wouldn't choose it over simply dieting. The idea that's it's a harder path is one that I hear often. It's used to gain sympathy, but it's simply untrue. It is a shortcut. That's why it was taken.

Third, such a diet can not only present side effects (as far as I'm concerned, it's a 100% chance), but those effects last a lifetime. And this is my contention.

"Weight loss" surgery is body modification that disrupts the natural functioning of said body. In all facets, the surgery is (far less desirable than simple dieting.) It modifies the functions in sometimes unpredictable ways leading to complications.

Vitamin deficiencies are common after weight loss surgery, but here they don’t tell us how common. I love how they instead claim that “Vitamin/Protein malnutrition is a result of non-compliance with vitamin recommendations and food sources”. Really?

Another explanation could be that vitamin / protein malnutrition is a result of removing or disconnecting the organs that absorb vitamins and protein. But of course then doctors couldn’t just blame the fat patient.

Bottom line
Why isn’t weight loss surgery the solution to the obesity epidemic? There’s a simple answer:

Removing healthy organs is not the solution to bad food.
