Why should I have bariatric surgery when I can just lose the weight by eating better?

People who achieve their weight loss through diets or other non-surgical means are much less likely to achieve remission or cure of any of their obesity associated illnesses. The reason we place an emphasis on surgical weight loss is a scientific one. Only 3-5% of people who lose significant weight are able to maintain their weight loss. Up to 85% of people who lose weight with bariatric surgery are able to keep the weight off.
