This does not surprise me
The LA Times often has great coverage of weight issues-- maybe because this is the land of the thin and the beautiful. One of their blogs, Booster Shots is something I read every day. Yesterday they talked about an article that will be coming out in the International Journal of Obesity comparing the outcomes of weightloss from diet and exercise vs surgery. What researchers found was that that the amount of weight loss was similar but that the surgery peeps had more fat in their diet, ate more fast food, worked out less and had higher levels of depression.
