Do not have this dangerous surgery! I have been there and you will never feel right again. I have learned the hard way about the right way to lose weight. If you have a stubborn insulin you hold fat and have a hard time losing weight. You can eat very little and the weight still does not come off. YOU HAVE STUBBORN INSULIN that holds fat and diets won't work BUT when researchers used a specialized diabetes diet on people with OR without diabetes they lost the stubborn insulin and the weight. It works! This was shown on MIdland News "The lesson of thin people" Click here http://www.ourmidland.com/voices/health/article_062da990-12cf-11e1-a523-0017a4aa8e72.html

We still need to feed our family healthy, well-balanced meals while keeping to a set budget. Change is the hardest thing and trying to do everything at once will have most people quitting before they even begin. You can get samples from sites like "Get Official Samples" where you can find all samples
