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.
