So we all have those people in our lives, whether close or not, that think WLS is a crazy option. I recently had another issue with someone at work. It is a drastic decision, yes, but crazy – not really. It got me to thinking and then I came across this link today.
So really is the LapBand or other WLS really that crazy – no, it is a tool, I eat 1200 to 1500 calories a day, and am not constantly in starvation mode. While it is surgery and aside from those associated risks, I don’t think it is that much worse for you then some of the diets listed in the link (admittedly, I have tried more than one of them).
