Gastric Bypass Surgery Saves You Money

I saw this article on my homepage today, it is not directly about gastric bypass surgery but it is about how much money we would save if we were not overweight. The article says that if Americans all lost the 20 pounds that we are overweight (on average) that cars and airplanes would save $5 billion in fuel due to their lighter loads! It also says that overweight people use 18 additional gallons of gas a year, that is like filling up your tank two times more just because you are overweight! I am sure glad I had Gastric bypass surgery and am no longer so overweight!!

Post Gastric Bypass Surgery Question

Okay, here is something that I haven't thought to ever ask my dietitian after my gastric bypass surgery .... Can I eat raw oysters? I used to enjoy them every once in a while before my weight loss surgery but have not had them in the 2 years since! I thought about it for the first time while I was in Key West enjoying fresh seafood and saw it on the menu. I am going to ask but until then if any one has had any experience with this please leave me a comment!!!
