I acquired a gastric bypass surgery 2 yrs ago at age group 35. I lost 80 pounds without work. Several things I recall from the training packet: The ghrelin signals would go away. The vagus nerve was cut. Also, Stan, the tummy and duodenum are remaining by itself, with blood circulation and the the enzymes have the ability to stream “normally” and meet the food at a later area of the intestine. I can tell you from experience how amazing it isn’t to “feel” starving; that gnawing continuous desire to have foods (usually “bad”). Foods still taste amazing, but the new element is whether or not my stomach/intestines shall tolerate the food.
I spent a season, slowing re-introducing foods into my diet back again. It has made a little of the re-training on what tastes good. The burger and fries taste good to the tongue still, however the body will not always consent! Even better, my belly is small enough that I cannot eat a whole burger still. BTW, just after surgery, I found out WAP foundation tow, and have gone to raw milk and organic foods.
My overall diet is about 80/20, some full times much better than others. Diabetes was gone in a couple weeks. Other medical issues have been warded off (provided I don’t regain the weight). I figure I am similar to a “normal” person now, in that I eat even more appropriate servings and I’ve a more responsive body to exercise and potential weight loss if I want it.
I no longer get the “reward” I used to when eating high body fat or high glucose foods. I don’t get that chemical “high”. Could it be the dopamine or serotonin stuff that makes us “feel great”? Anyway, those are not triggered from food as much nearly. I am glad to answer questions, to be a “live subject”. Thank you for all your great articles on food prize. I might not understand all of the science, but so a lot of it makes sense. I am glad to have the surgery as a “tool” in my own lifelong struggle with food (emotional eating, years of Pavlovian training to desire particular foods).

It is often normal to reduce a apparent amount of weight after, for example, the strain of changing jobs, divorce, bereavement or redundancy. Weight often returns to normal when you start to feel happier. This can be after you’ve had time for you to grieve or get used to the change. Support and Counselling may be needed to help you get to this stage. If you think you may need help in dealing with stress, seek advice or get hold of your GP. Significant weight loss can also be the result of an eating disorder, such as anorexia or bulimia.
If you think you might have anorexia, make an effort to seek help as as it can be soon. You could start by talking to a person you trust, like a known member of your loved ones or a pal. You could ask them to go with one to see your GP perhaps. There are also several organisations you can talk to for information and advice, like the eating disorders charity Eating Disorders Association. If your weight loss wasn’t because of the above causes, and you didn’t lose weight through dieting or working out, see your GP. This is because it’s likely you have a health that needs to be treated.
Your bodyweight can regularly fluctuate. However the persistent, unintentional loss of more than 5 per cent of your weight over 6 to a year is generally a cause for concern. Losing this much weight can be a sign of malnutrition. That is whenever a person’s diet doesn’t support the right amount of nutrients.
