I do believe that some surgeries require more of a lifestyle change to initially lose weight. I agree that in order to see long term results with any surgery lifestyle changes have to be made. With the gastric bypass malnutrition does play a huge part in intial weight loss so i do think that is is of greater assitance to those that have chosen that route. I have known people that have lost a signficant amount of weight with rny that did not work out of change the foods that they choose to eat; however, they regained their weight. Where as if i do not work out of eat right I will not lose anything, I will actually gain weight. So i am not saying that its a free ride, but i do think that regardless with rny u will see results wether you workout or change your food chooses, far as short term results are concerned.
Let's HOPE not!
There's a huge difference betwee malnutrition
. Many MO people are actually malnourished
, due to poor food choices. The malabsorptive forms of WLS (RNY/gastric bypass and the DS/duodenal switch) cause malabsorption of some calories, but they don't cause malnutrition---poor food choices do that.
