Bariatric Surgery

Today Dr. Sharma had a post supporting bariatric surgery. No doubt it is great for those who can follow the food program after. But there is the rub.

I know a couple of girls who had the surgery, and were not able to follow the food program, diet, after. One was so addicted to sugar-wheat-carbs, and the other looked like scurvy, also common after.

Food addiction is real, and must be overcome before any diet will work. Mineral and vitamin deficiencies are real and some cause real hunger; hence, drive eating. Hyperinsulinemia is another issue. These must be identified and corrected.

The ultimate test would be to follow the food program for a month or so before the surgery. If you can follow it, then make a decision.
