A recent study reported two-thirds of women and three-fourths of men are overweight or obese. Are we so abundantly delighted with life that we, as a society, are eating ourselves to death? Most cultures understand you eat to live not live to eat. Is this a matter of not dealing with issues beneath the surface? Gluttony is a sin. Perhaps with our on the go society, lack of home cooked meals, mcdonalds and taco bell have caused damage to our health as a society? Why is obesity a problem in the United States. Does the mentality of eating till you explode now mirror the norm?

Thus far, I personally know 5 women who have had gastric bypass.It took a year to finally lose 100 pounds. They looked & felt great for about 8 months. If they opt to have the bypass undone. In 3 months they balloon back up! The moral??
Honestly, with real education and commitment, one can lose 100 pounds through hard work and exercise and learn the habits to keep it off. Bypass doesn't teach new habits but it does make a lot of money for the surgeons.
Americans have never been known for patience! :-)
If a diet plan doesn't promise us we'll lose 5-10 lbs in a week we won't buy it! Gastric bypass should only be done when a person's life is at risk.
As you said it doesn't teach lifestyle change.
