Frustrating
12 February 2019 | by lizzilumpsSee all my reviews

I love this show and overall it was a good episode but I have serious issues about the gastric bypass plot line. It is extremely frustrating when people think that weight loss surgery is the easy way out. I know firsthand that it takes a lot of work to lose weight and even more work to not gain it back. In order to be successful, you need to make serious behavioral changes. The patient kept the weight off for fifteen years. To say that he will gain it all back is unfair and untrue.
