“Post-op, these people grieve for the loss of food,” Arioli says. “Food is their comfort. And if you don’t figure out how to find comfort in other ways, you’re going to go with what you know. These are some serious eaters.”
I briefly considered it. But man, I love food.
Now I do not mourn for food. I learned to live with it. And I get way more satisfaction from it now that I ever did scarfing thousands of calories a day back then. Being forced into moderation with all those side effects, how is that living? Dumping? NO real sweets or things with REAL sugar. We all need less chemicals as it is. How is this better?!?!? I would say I was not living at 345, but I think I would take that life over what some of these poor souls have had to deal with in the article. Gastric Bypass (or it's cousins) are so, American. Everything, all of it-- right now, it's so easy and don't worry about the consequences ... it won't matter when you are THIN! Ugh. I know those who have had this surgery say that it is not a quick fix, but why be FORCED into that lifestyle of deprivation when (imho) it has more risk than reward. I'd rather deal with the known (diabetes and all the obesity co-morbidities) than roll the dice with this shit that people are simply making a buck off of. /jadedness. /soapbox.
