But Jeez, this "Stomach bypass" thing? Can't be good for ya?
Was watching that Inside Out prog about bike theft and followed that was this fat biffer (no sympathy - KFC buckets etc.) having her stomach operated on to get (in her hubby's words) "that figure" (arf).
Apparently, they greatly reduce the size of the stomach and drastically shorten the intestine, so food goes straight out the sh1tter.
I always thought the intenstine was long so the body could absorb nutrients etc from the food on its way to being digested.. seems not. I'll be tuning in next week (mainly to see if her massive double chin will turn into a pelican-like flap dangling off her face)
On the iPlayer if anyone cares!
