This recent article caught my attention as so many patients elect to pursue weight loss surgery. I’ve long taught that nutrition–proper nutrition–must still occur for success after weight loss surgery.
The following is a good article confirming the same. Please note the very erroneous statement near the end of the article:
“Type 2 diabetes often develops as a result of obesity and occurs because the body cannot meet the high demand of insulin imposed by obesity and insulin resistance.”
Wrong! Obesity occurs as a result of excess processed carbohydrate consumption. That in turn leads to high insulin, which then leads to insulin resistance, and then diabetes. DO NOT LET PEOPLE TRY TO CONVINCE YOU OBESITY JUST HAPPENS….
