* Gastric bypass is the prefered option if you have diatetes. Your blood sugar returns to normal. The small intestine is bypassed. That only happens with this proceedure.
* You cannot stretch your stomach. You could, in theory, eat a tremendous amount and burst the incision but unlikely.
* You can gain weight by eating too much but not at once. Too many small meals will have that same effect.
* These proceedures are done laparoscopically so recovery time is quick. You have to follow a soft diet for a period of time as you heal.
* There is no special diet to follow. Eating well is, of course, what we all should be doing.
These proceedures put you in a position that many of us fight to achieve. That being, eat what you want but keep portions small. It is a calorie game no matter how you choose to do it. Eat less, move more. Why is that so elusive?
