Bariatric Surgery Tops The Biggest Loser, Drugs and Diets

Bariatric surgery continues to be the most effective long-term weight loss method, with less than 3% gaining back their original weight after ten years. Compare this to the statistics of The Biggest Loser, where over 95% of contestants gained back nearly all the weight they lost. Not only this, but those who competed on The Biggest Loser had slowed metabolisms even years after the program ended. Patients of bariatric surgery don’t have any metabolic adaptation one year after surgery, and even have the benefits of their body producing less amino acids which are known to cause insulin resistance and allow the effects of diabetes to lessen or disappear even before large weight loss.

Even programs not televised, like personal diets, have a low rate of success. Even those who stick with their diets (which is only about 2% of people) lost only about 8% of their weight long term. Compare this again to bariatric surgery, where patients on average lose 60-80% of their excess weight.

Those who try to supplement diets with weight loss pills put themselves at even higher risk. Many weight loss supplements contain banned or illegal substances, like ephedra, which was banned on military ground after being linked in over two dozen soldiers’ deaths. Even those without dangerous side effects could suffer from withdrawals when they discontinue the supplement.

Thomas' success story

I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man.

Everybody treated me like a king. The day of surgery, I was excited. The hospital couldn’t be any nicer. I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man. My recovery was awesome. I was out of bed that day. My wife and kids were my motivation on getting this surgery. They are my whole life. I’m happy I’m going to be around for them.

Nicole's success story

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.
