    I was watching discovery health with these 800lb people who got their stomach stappled smaller and lost like hundereds of pounds cause they cant eat as much. I wonder if that would be a good idea for people who have low will power but arent fat like myself (not that I'm thinking about it). I'm like 5'11 200lbs 16% body fat but I can never get full and eat and eat. maybe this would be a good solution :dunno:

    maybe eating $900/mo of food is a bit too much.

    I wouldn't recommend any surgery that you can avoid. There are actual health risks involved with the surgery, I guess there is a chance that you can die from the surgery. Although, if obese people don't get the surgery they will inevitably die from their obesity. So IMO I would never recommend it to someone your size.

    the reason it's beyond retarded is because when you have your stomach stapled, you can never eat normally again, ever. Also you are fairly likely to die someone said 5% I think it's actually closer to 10%. It restricts the type of food you can eat as well as the quantity which is like a table spoon or so at a time. So not only will you be skinny, you will never put any muscle on after you lose the weight. The problem is that if you don't have the will power to stop eating entire pizzas 5 times per day, you won't have the will power to eat 1 table spoon of soup 5 times per day, hence the reason many people die (that and the major surgery recovery part).
