Question by : Can you duplicate the speed and results of gastric bypass?
Can you duplicate the speed and results of gastric bypass weight-loss surgery by restricting portions (like hardcore)? I was reading about how gastric bypass surgery works and it says, “It’s the reduction of your portion sizes and the lessened calorie absorption that leads to weight loss, not the procedure in and of itself. Thanks to your much smaller stomach, you must eat restricted portions following gastric bypass.” So would someone who was practically starving themself (eating portions similar to the size you would eat after having GB surgery) get the same speedy results? I want gastric bypass surgery but the doctor said I would have to gain another 100 lbs, and I can’t afford it anyway. I have the willpower to diet and exercise the “right way” and have lost 40 lbs in the past few months doing so, but I’m looking for speedier results.
Serious answers only please! Help! lol

Everyone wants faster results, but fitness and health has no end goal. It’s a life-long thing. Just get started and make sure you continue to make progress.
