BARIATRIC SURGERY FOR DIABETES. Let’s think about it!!! Weight loss is the most effective treatment for persons with diabetes and obesity. This is most safely done though and intensive nutrition weight loss program. I have treated over 5000 patients with diabetes and obesity and many have achieve remission of their diabetes and even gone 20 years after stopping insulin while on our Simple Diet and Simple Lifetime diet. The risks and complications of bariatric surgery are scary. With gastric bypass surgery one in 63 patients die within one year and 40% have complications in the first year. Lap-band surgery has lower death rates but more frequent complications. So, I always tell my patients they need to try diet for weight loss seriously before subjecting themselves to the scary risks of surgery. See my blog on Bariatric Surgery References and Chapter 11 of my book, The Simple Diet for details and references. Best, Nutdoc

My sister & I are following the diet together, she is my accountable person. I call the Simple Diet my grocery store Nutrisystem. My question is I tend to eat more fruits than veggies, is this OK??

Hi Marti,
Fruits have more calories so may slow your weight loss. But if you use the three shakes and two entrees and nothing but fruits and veggies, you should lose weight nicely. Choose the lower calorie fruits and enjoy 3 or 4 per day. Best of luck. Nutdoc
