According to a new study published in the American Journal of Physiology – Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology, gastric bypass surgery may actually change taste preference in patients.
The study was conducted at the Imperial College London. Researchers found that after surgery, patients naturally made better food choices without even trying. According to Dr. Carel Le Roux, “It appears that after bypass surgery, patients become hungry for good food and avoid junk food not because they have to, but because they just don’t like it any more. If we can find out why this happens, we might be able to help people to eat more healthily without much effort.”
Gastric bypass surgery may be helpful for the extremely obese (those with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or greater), however it’s an extreme procedure that isn’t right for everyone. If your BMI is well under 40 but you still need to lose weight, try combining one of Dr. Newton’s Naturals weight loss supplements with a healthy diet and exercise plan. Dr. Agin’s Skinny D will give you the energy you need to power through workouts and blast those extra calories.
