Before and after

Before and after

I received a fascinating story from Anthony in Australia about what happened when he ended up in the emergency room, where it was discovered that he had high blood pressure. This led him to search for better health on his own, not following the usual diet recommendations he was given. Here’s his story: Continue Reading →

Number of Weight-Loss Surgeries Continues to Decline in Sweden!

midja

The trend of an increasing number of weight-loss surgeries in Sweden (where I live) has now definitely been broken. For the second year in a row, fewer and fewer people have undergone this type of surgery.

Those responsible for weight-loss surgeries want to make the claim that the decline in weight-loss surgeries is because other, more urgent, types of surgery are given higher priority. But perhaps the real reason is different?

Perhaps more and more people are beginning to question the health benefits of such mass and indiscriminate surgery. There is no disease where the surgeons operate. Healthy organs are cut out. Healthy stomachs and healthy intestines are surgically removed with disconcerting routine.

Solutions this extreme can’t be necessary for more than a small minority. There must be more natural solutions for most people.

Weight-loss surgery is the ultimate proof of how the health-care system has failed miserably to deal with the obesity problem – a panic button. It’s not a long-term solution and perhaps more and more are starting to understand this. If this is the case the decrease is good news! Continue Reading →

The cake is made with plenty of sugar and wheat flour.

What overweight people “treat themselves” to by following Weight Watcher’s advice is hunger and failure. I don’t think they’re worth it.
