I know this 2017 article by the New York Times is a little old, but it’s a fascinating subject and it answers the question I’ve wondered about for ages.  Why does weight-loss surgery work when dieting doesn’t?

Thanks for sharing, Wren!  I’ve wondered about that myself.  I’m so surprised that weight-loss surgery makes so many changes to a person’s body.  I just assumed it only effected the digestive system.  It sounds nice and like a good way to succeed, but it also sounds very permanent, which makes me a little more cautious.

This is an interesting article. Thank you for sharing it with us. I had no idea that the body fights weight loss like that in individuals who have struggled with obesity for so many years.
