    Hi, Jimmy and Jenna.

    Enjoyed this episode as usual! But:

    I’m a bariatric surgery patient (Roux-En-Y). I totally understand that this surgery IS extreme. But, at 52 years old with T2D, high BP, whacked cholesterol, 392lbs and having tried to lose weight through all imaginable ways I had proven unsuccessful. And, yes, I knew a lot about low-carb but was also unsuccessful at maintaining. Why? Because losing weight and getting healthy is way more than just the diet. Most heavy people have many issues to break through in order to find a successful ‘get healthy’ approach. Working through these things is the only way most of us heavy people can be successful. And our diet is only a part – not the overarching subject.

    The lady you talked to about the ‘surgery for diabetes’ question showed the public ignorance towards surgery and the reasons surgery can be part of the ‘cure’ for what is ailing us. She mentioned ‘if they have smaller stomachs, they’ll just drink sugary things’ and ‘low carb seem to work’ in lieu of surgery. Our society thinks ‘why don’t you just do this’ and you’ll get healthy? As you know, there is so much bad info our there and it has become ingrained in the mind of the public – just like LCHF/Keto is.

    Finding that ‘thing’ (low-carb, therapy, surgery, support, or a combo of things) that helps us get healthy is truly the most important thing. I NEEDED something that would give me the opportunity to change my life and get it on the right track. I had gamed ALL previous attempts at getting healthy and need this ‘extreme’ step to live. I had surgery 3/17/14 but had great ‘before-care’ AND ‘after-care’. I’ve kept checking my labs, eating LCHF, using my ‘tool’ of new digestive plumbing, getting/seeking support in my life. THIS is how I’ve been successful to this point – not just ‘eating right’. It’s way bigger than that…

    Jimmy, I know you’ve experienced the ‘regaining weight after surgery’ issue with your mom and I totally get that you’ve seen surgery be unsuccessful with her. But we’re all capable of gaming the system in whatever path we choose. I wish her the best and thank you for all the help you’ve given me personally to help me with my journey. Thanks!
