It seems so simple: Eat less, exercise more—significantly lose weight. But for many severely overweight people, diets and exercise just don’t work. And repeated attempts lead to the unhealthy yo-yo effect of short-term success followed by inevitable weight gain. Frustrating, depressing, even deadly.
Fortunately, there is a solution: Weight loss, or bariatric surgery, which has an 80% success rate in sustained weight loss.
