Ooh boy. One researcher from Britain says that, since diets don’t work, the best answer is to start performing weight loss surgery as a “preventative” measure, even on those whose BMI is less than 35.
“Surgery is currently the only effective treatment for obesity … It not only helps people lose weight by physically decreasing the amount they can eat, but also alters their hormone profile, meaning they feel less hungry and therefore find it much easier to maintain weight loss.”…
“The only proven way to lose weight and live longer is by having obesity surgery,” he said. “This type of surgery will, however, not make you thin, nor will it make you happy, it will only make you healthier.”
The theory continues that since WLS is “more effective” than “lifestyle changes” or “drugs” over the long-term it should be offered as the new first course of action to “treat” obesity.
Wow, I can’t seem to stop “using” these “ironic quotes” around everything. I “literally” cannot wait to hear what you guys are going to make of this.
