He blamed the deaths on the failure of medical staff and on the patients, themselves. The Medical Board of Queensland had placed seven conditions on Dr. Broadbent on August 29, 2007. One restricted him to perform the BPD procedure only at hospitals with a nutritionist or dietitian on staff, which he told the paper was “a total waste of time.” He added:
Any amount of planning will not prevent the rogue patients from doing what they want to do... and two of these people who died were rogue patients who just would not follow instructions. In the first year after surgery all these people are at risk because they still have all their original co-morbidities (related conditions)... There's only one thing we guarantee with this operation — if they don't do what I ask them they'll end up in trouble. The rest is up to them...
It's lifesaving surgery, it's life-extending surgery that can save the community millions. Bear in mind these aren't well people — you see them waddling down the street.
When it comes to dieting, Americans put on a good show, buying millions of diet books, watching TV programs about weight loss, obsessing over celebrities and their baby weight. But in the end, that may be all it is: a show. The number of people on a diet - 26 percent of all women in the United States and 16 percent of men for the year ending February 2008 - is the lowest it's been in more than two decades, according to a soon-to-be-released survey.
The report, which asks 5,000 Americans to keep a daily journal for two weeks about their eating habits, also found that despite high levels of obesity nationwide, a declining percentage of people want to slim down or, for that matter, consider excess weight unattractive. In 1985, 55 percent of those surveyed "completely agreed" with the statement, "People who are not overweight look a lot more attractive." Today, only 25 percent completely agree with it.
Dieting was once practically a national pastime. In 1990, the same report found that 39 percent of women and 29 percent of men were on a diet. So, what's happened? Balzer, who's tracked Americans' eating habits since the 1980s, believes the answer is that dieting is simply too hard. "It's much easier to change your attitude," he said, than to sustain the willpower to eat less.
Dr. Sasha Stiles, medical director of the Obesity Consult Center at Tufts Medical Center, offers additional reasons why dieting is on the wane: "A lot of people are saying I don't have enough money to spend on a diet, or I'm going to try surgery."
There's another possible explanation: Fewer people are dieting because there's no exciting new diet on the scene. In 2004, the top-selling diet book in the country, "The South Beach Diet," sold 2.4 million copies, in 2007, the most popular book, "You: On a Diet," by Oprah Winfrey's health guru Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen, managed only 706,000 copies, this year's top selling book, "Eat This Not That!" has sold a mere 552,000 copies so far, and is more reference than diet book.
With no miracle plan animating dinner-party and workplace conversations, it's the same old, same old. That gets boring, says Amy Kropke, 41, of Newton, who says she'd be "fabulous" if she could shed 20 pounds.
"I love that moment where you're like, 'This is it. This is definitely the one," she says, her voice tinged with nostalgia for the days when South Beach thrilled her. She wants to be seduced again, preferably by "something that was easy, that you could lose 10 pounds without having to do too much."
"Dieting is not your normal way of living," says Liliana Staiculescu, 48, an accountant from Plainville, who tried Atkins and a no-fat eating plan before cutting diets out of her life. "You have to limit what you eat and pay attention to your health."
"Once you start losing weight by decreasing calorie intake, your body interprets this as starvation and goes into emergency status, fighting to lay down fat deposits where possible," explained Rachel Batterham of University College London. "Therefore you are fighting against your body when losing weight."
Stomach surgery such as gastric bypass operations should not only be carried out on severely obese people, but offered to overweight men and women as a form of disease prevention, in much the same way statins are offered to prevent heart disease, they said.
Severely overweight people with a body mass index of 35 already qualify for gastric surgery and studies have shown that although the operation carries a small risk, the long-term benefits are better than for patients treated with drugs or lifestyle changes, Dr Le Roux told the British Association for the Advancement of Science's Festival of Science at Liverpool University.
"The only proven way to lose weight and live longer is by having obesity surgery," he said. "This type of surgery will, however, not make you thin, nor will it make you happy, it will only make you healthier."
