Often my clients will say to me ‘I know what to do but I can’t do it’
A decision to have surgery is often made because there is a sense that everything has been tried and sustained weight loss is still not possible. I am told ‘I have tried every diet out there but still can’t keep the weight off’. They tell me they can follow the diet for a while but eventually they ‘fall off the wagon’ or ‘have a bad day’ and this leads to a feeling of failure and they will eat. Whatever weight has been lost while dieting will be quickly regained.
You already know this, but I feel this is a point that needs to be stressed: Weight loss surgery won’t stop you from eating ‘bad foods’.
