Of the listed surgical processes in the articles above, I only know of one person who has had one of these done.  A few years ago, a friend decided on the lap-band surgery. It was definitely tough for her to adjust to at first. The tiny amount of food her body was now constricted to made it so that she could only eat a handful of cereal (like Apple Jacks) in an 11-hour stretch.  Over time, she went from her starting weight of  around 330 pounds to a size 4 (and I think around 110 pounds). She was very happy with the results!

It’s interesting to see though that taste buds seem to get altered in the process.

What are your thoughts? Have you or anyone you know had one of these procedures done?  Can you confirm that taste buds do seem to change?

Have a great day everyone!
