It varies to different people. It is still a case to case basis.

  2. Hi there,
    thankyou for sharing the information in this post, i would like to add that although yes alot of people have tried everything else leaving surgery there last resort, but several questions come to mind as I think about this... Did they really try everything? did they really try? I now some people have so yes perhaps weight loss surgery is there last option so if that is the case I wish you all the best and hope you get the results you want. Thanks for reading my reply...

  3. Hello,
    yeah some good points there I have seen in many cases, and hear alot that there is no one magic bullet in losing weight, sometimes it helps doing a couple of different programs and then testing and measuring your results to see if it's worth sticking with or not.. This may seem like abit of work, money and time but my answer to that is if you want to lose weight bad enough you will do what ever it takes. Also having the right mindset is important...

  4. Nice post, thanks for sharing this wonderful and useful information with us.
