Kristieshannon is absolutely right - there are a lot more people who never make it to their goal than there are who lose too much. A LOT. Besides, although there are rare exceptions to this, you can always start eating more if you feel you're losing too much weight. So suffice it to say, it's rarely a problem.

Yes, it's possible. While it is much more common to lose only about half of your excess weight, and struggle with regain...there ARE people who swap one version of disordered eating for another and ultimately struggle with full blown anorexia and bulemia.

Inpatient eating disorder treatment centers are reporting increasing numbers of post bariatric surgery patients.

It is not that bariatric surgery causes an eating disorder...the eating disorder is usually pre-existing. But it can cause the eating disorder to take a different form...almost like cross over addiction (which is also a significant problem for many post bariatric surgery patients.)

People do die after bariatric surgery due to eating disorder related malnutrition. It happens. That said! Bariatric surgery is overwhelmingly coorelated to increased lifespans. Fatal eating disorders are rare.

In short....worth paying attention to, but few deal with it...and overall, Bariatric surgery has far more benefits than risks.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
