    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.

    Very impressive, she definitely looks way younger in the "after" picture.

    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.

    I went through EXACTLY the same thing in 2002. Was planning my gastric bypass and noticed all the forums/recovery groups were talking about the same thing. They couldn't eat carbs after the surgery. Bread/pasta/chips would cause 'dumping' etc. So I tried just not eating that stuff on my own. Add some additional exploratory self-educating and testing (which hasn't, and should never stop!) and 12 years later I'm still over 100 pounds down, and haven't had second thoughts once.

    In that time I have known 9 people who have gotten some kind of bariatric (which, not-so-ironically, my spellcheck keeps wanting to change to 'barbaric') surgery. ONE has had long-term success, and he was a male in his mid-20s. One actually almost died just last month because they had to go in and repair something minor five years later, severed a major artery on the way out, and she lost 6 liters of blood as they frantically called every available surgeon in to repair her. I don't remember the specifics now, but I had googled it when I got the news and what happened to her has a 90% mortality rate. People should NOT be cutting into their bodies and rearranging perfectly healthy organs. Lose the weight with LCHF and save the money for a face lift! :-)
