Myth

No matter what your weight is, you can lose a significant amount of weight through dieting if you just try hard enough.

Reality

Although the hallmark of weight loss is calorie reduction, when the BMI exceeds 35, a disease state exists which is poorly responsive to all non-surgical efforts at weight loss. In fact, fewer than 5% of patients with Severe Obesity will achieve significant and lasting weight loss with dieting.dieting is an inappropriate and ineffective treatment for the vast majority of patients suffering from the disease of Severe Obesity.
