Doug works with alot of doctors that are finally coming around to sugar and white flours as poison.They send their patients to us for books or just buy them and hand them out.I love to work with the kids though especially teens they are too much fun! :)

I have 2 daughters, ages 33 and 13. My older daughter has one child. My grandson is 8. I love it when he visits. She texts & emails me photos of him often, so I'm happy to see what he's up to.

My father's wife had it done and she gained the weight back too. Very dangerous way to loose weight and it won't teach you proper eating.

I agree Jay, It apparently does not teach you anything but how wrong of a decision it was to do in the first place. Some insurance plans will cover this procedure but will not cover classes on how to keep it off.

I was having trouble with cravings tonight so I decided to hop over here for inspiration and happened upon this post.  I watch a lot of tv shows about morbidly obese people because I can relate to them (I weigh over 300 pounds).  On a lot of the shows I've seen, the people are putting all their hopes and dreams on gastric bypass surgery.  Most of them need to lose weight before the doctor will even perform the surgery on them.  I've lost and gained a lot of weight in my life and am at the second highest weight I've ever been.  I'd never have the surgery; I knew someone that died from complications of gastric bypass surgery.  Plus I've heard a lot of things about the nasty side effects.  Of course, I can die from being overweight as well.

Kayleen Sherripie here on the forum lost over 200 pounds,no surgery. I have met alot of people that have had gastric bypass and they all  gain the weight back because they are not taught how to eat and what makes them fat. With Fat to skinny its a lifestyle change.We replace all your favorite foods with fat to skinny friendly replacements.Cycle broken there are no foods to add back to gain the weight back.If you have read dougs book you know what makes you fat.You can do this and we are going to help you.Your hand in mine we will get you through this ;)

Stick with us, Kayleen! :) :) :)
We'll help you shed that weight FOREVER if you really want it gone!

Many of us here (including myself), have lost and gained enough weight to equal a small group of people's total weight.
By addressing the cause of why we're fat, we can do something about it.

Whatever you do, NEVER give in to this type of surgery!!!
Like Umpa, I've only heard that bad things eventually happen to those who have it.

When we eat too many carbs, our bodies will convert the added blood glucose to FAT.
Strangling the stomach will NOT fix that problem!... Eating the FTS way, will! :) :) :)
Not too mention, FTS will make us much healthier at the same time! ;D ;D ;D

What you do today is what matters!

Elizabeth779:  I would dump the endo and find one that doesn't think like him/her.  Gives me the creeps!
