I will live a life of constant temptation and deprivation

Myth

After gastric bypass, I will live a life of constant temptation and deprivation, having to give up the foods I love.

Reality

Both Gastric Bypass and Sleeve Gastrectomy are followed by a “honeymoon” period of reduction in hunger with maintenance of satiety (the feeling of satisfaction after eating) causing weight loss and helping to enable patients to adopt the proper eating habits to maintain a healthy weight. Patients can continue to eat many of the foods they love, just not as much of them. Furthermore, you will gain much more in your life than you think you will have to give up.
