  • Clinical trial demonstrates additive effect of exercise following gastric bypass. So. do. it. I know, I know, easier said than done. Over 75 million adults in the US are obese. These individuals are predisposed to health complications, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Gastric bypass surgery results in dramatic weight loss and can improve diabetes symptoms in obese patients. A new study in the Journal of Clinical Investigation reveals that exercise following bypass surgery provides additional benefit for obese patients. Bret Goodpaster and colleagues at the University of Pittsburgh conducted a study on individuals that had recently undergone gastric bypass... more
  • Patients With Psychiatric Illness Require Close Watch After Bariatric Surgery A study conducted in Brazil and presented at a poster session at the 2014 annual meeting of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders looked at six cases in which patients committed suicide or attempted suicide after bariatric surgery. The study did not specify the form of weight loss surgery that each patient underwent. Three of the six patients who underwent the surgery had an anxiety disorder and had previous psychiatric treatment, a fact that needs to be given consideration, said Sean Wharton, MD, PharmD, FRCP(C),... more
  • The most authentic commercial yet from Weight Watchers. WW you win with this one, although it doesn't exactly motivate me to go sign up for your plan (...was that the goal -- because I didn't catch that vibe, I just laughed and wanted a snack for a second?) I still LOVE THIS because it's truth all right here for us emotional eaters. Sorry not sorry I agree. more
  • As many of you -- I have had lower back pain for years, and in my normal Beth way I have ignored it or (...don't tell anyone!) medicated it with NSAIDS off and on, and heat, and exercise, and stretching. AND GOD DAMN IT, IT HURTS. Source - Healio NSAID use is contraindicated in gastric bypass patients as it can cause serious ulcers. I started popping them like candy recently. No. good. The back pain comes in cycles and never really goes away. It gets to the point where I cannot ignore it and I am currently in a Flare... more
  • I think mine is broken. I go for SALTY every time. I hereby define this study in the flesh. Everything tastes too, everything to me. -MM Via Science Daily from ASMBS - People with obesity may have an unexpected ally after weight-loss surgery: their tongues. New research from the Stanford University School of Medicine finds patients who reported a decrease in taste intensity after bariatric surgery had significantly higher excess weight loss after three months than those whose taste intensity became higher. Findings from the new study, "Does Taste Perception Change After Bariatric Surgery?", were presented here at the 31st... more
  • Imagine a standardized bariatric vitamin label! Could it happen? Via Dr. Sharma's Obesity Notes - Last week, at the 4th Dietitian Obesity Learning Retreat, co-hosted by the Canadian Obesity Network and Dietitians Canada, Jennifer Brown, co-chair of the Ontario Bariatric Network Dietitian Task Force creator of the bariatric surgery subgroup of the Dietitians of Canada – Diabetes Obesity and Cardiovascular network, presented a neat little nutrition label-style compilation of the essential vitamin and mineral requirements for post-bariatric surgery patients. Jennifer has been a Registered Dietitian with The Ottawa Hospital Weight Management Clinic and Bariatric Centre of Excellence since 2007 and... more

  • I might be doing something ... right by my daily doses of unsweetened cocoa! I have serious memory issues if you did not notice, on account of the epilepsy, and I assume that someday I'm going to be in a home for the memory impaired. So every time I see a study like this -- I go OOOOH! LOOOK! THIS! I don't take them very seriously, but I read them ALL. Firstly, it was sponsored in part by a chocolate candy-maker. And, yeah. But check it. The brain area outlined in yellow is the hippocampus; the dentate gyrus is shown... more
