People who have tried to fight obesity by making significant lifestyle changes but with little or no success can look into gastric bypass. Gastric bypass is a restrictive bariatric procedure which alters the size of the stomach and the way food passes through intestine, thereby leading to significant weight loss.

Gastric Bypass Explained
- Gastric bypass is a bariatric surgical procedure which helps lose excess weight by reducing the stomach size and reconnecting it with the intestine in a manner that allows for ingested food to bypass that part of the intestine where calorie absorption takes place.
- The first step of the surgery involves dividing the stomach into a small upper pouch and a larger lower pouch.
- This is achieved by stapling the stomach.
- The smaller upper stomach with the capacity of just an ounce is where food will enter, post surgery.
- Because of its substantially reduced capacity, you eat less and lose weight.
- The second step of the surgery is creating a bypass. This is done by connecting the jejunum to the new pouch.
- Food will now pass on into the small intestine through the new hole created in the jejunum.
Note – If you are looking for a quick-fix for obesity, then gastric bypass is perhaps not what you are looking for. As there are no short-cuts to fighting obesity, your weight loss success would depend on your will to diet and exercise even after surgery.
