Losing Fat and Maintaining Muscles

Focus on maintaining muscle and not on losing fat

The Link Between Weight Loss Surgery and Headaches

Weight loss surgery may be a risk factor for a specific kind of headache, according to a new study published in the journal Neurology.

Researchers looked at 338 patients with a history of spontaneous intracranial hypotension—headaches typically caused by a cerebrospinal fluid leak—and found that 11 of those patients had undergone a form of bariatric surgery. Though 11 people, 3.3% of the sample, is a seemingly small number and certainly not enough to change clinical ...

I have had the Lap Band since 9/08. I have lost about 20 lbs and kept it off. I now want it removed for many reasons, 1) the port sticks out too far and I seem hit it on my desk and other things. 2) This just doesn't work for me.

Question about Paying for Gastic Bypass (not for me)

I am actually asking for a friend of my husband's... He makes too much money for government-subsidized insurance in our state (he makes like 28K/year as a line cook), but he doesn't have the money for regular health insurance. How much does a gastric bypass cost (procedure, operating room, etc.)? Do you know if they offer this at a reduced cost at any teaching hospitals?

I quickly started dropping weight. I was very ...
