  1. If you’re right at the 40 BMI point and you go on the Pre-Op diet will the insurance company still pay for your surgery?

  3. What about adjusting an out of balance hormone system due to (many reasons) one of which is STRESS. Stress is a major cause for weight gain and an inability to lose it over time. Stress from trauma throughout life contributes to belly fat and under arm fat. It strips the good fat and muscle from the buttocks and thighs to keep the body alive.
    Eliminate weight gain without extreme trauma to a wonderfully made body that only needs the endocrine system set right. To slice out a major organ that contributes many hormones to keep a body alive is barbaric and cruel, since the patient not only loses hair for a year and a half, yet stops major functions from happening… less to no natural body oils produced to keep awesome skin subtle and great looking. Now the patient is bald and has sickly looking skin. Also the patient will lose proper levels of intestinal lubricant due to hormones not being sent to signal the need. So this leads to severe tearing and possible surgery to cut more of the once awesome body apart.
    Sure one may appear thin for a while yet the patient is slowly dying inside and out. One in fifty (1-50) die from this surgery on operating table due to heart failure. Systemic stress is a large percentage in the first thirty days. Stomach ripping open and many other dramatically lethal combinations kill more after thirty days. However, if you die past the sixty day mark,your family must prove the patient was NOT at fault.

    One can keep weight off with reducing stress in all possible areas of life, not destroy a wonderful body using a one time plastic surgeon to do the destructive acts.

  4. I’m curious that if a person was capable of following the same POST op diet as your surgical patients would they lose the same amount of weight? If bariatric surgery changes metabolism, how does it do this? and for how long? It has to be more than just restrictive caloric intake, correct?

  5. Hello there, I want to know if Fenoboci Diet Plan, will really work for me? I notice many people keep on talking about this popular lose weight secrets.
