Don´t regain that lost weight!
The most rapid treatment for obesity is surgery that either limits the capacity of the stomach, or prevents the full absorption of ingested food, or combines these two methods. The health-promoting effect of gastric surgery for obesity ranges from a decrease in heart disease to a decrease in diabetes. However, although the effects of gastric surgery on weight loss are clear, these procedures do not affect the underlying patterns of disordered eating behavior that led to the obesity. We know this for a fact because when gastric restriction is reversed by loosening an adjustable band, the high food intake that had characterized their eating behavior prior to the surgery returned quite rapidly. Therefore, if the underlying eating pattern remains unaffected by the gastric surgery, there is always a real possibility that any weight loss could be reversed by undermining the basis for the food restriction, for example, by continually eating ice cream.
