    Gastric bypass surgery should be re-classified as a hate crime. It is surgically induced anorexia -- which has been known to kill people. About 1 out of 200 die each year following gastric bypass surgery.

  3. I was nearly precisely in her shoes (though heavier): 465lbs and facing gastric bypass surgery. Fortunately I found low carb, then keto, and dropped 135lbs since March 2011.

    It is startling how easily doctors recommend gastric bypass compared to how reluctant they are to suggest trying LCHF. Why it's not standard protocol to attempt LCHF first is absolutely baffling, and depressing.

    Congratulations to Johanna for her success. She will be an inspiration to countless people.

    Let's be realistic...though drastic, gastric bypass surgery doesn't kill even 1% the number of people that obesity does. So stop it. LCHF certainly is safer and should definitely be recommended 100 times more frequently than it is. I didn't die or have complications, but have been much more successful eating LCHF once I was educated about it. You can't choose LCHF if you're not aware of it.

  9. What a transformation!
  10. That's great. I've lost 160 pounds to date living a LCHF lifestyle. What FREEDOM this lifestyle has given me, along with energy and health. This web site has before and now pictures.

    Are we sure the 2 photos belong to the same person?

    They look 2 different persons. I checked her Facebook profile but cannot see anything.

    Thanks.

    Gastric bypass is killing people. If I would have known about LCHF before my surgery I would be in a better place. All I want to do is gain weight and I cant now. Dying a slow and painful life after gastric bypass.
