How does a person not slowly starve after bariatric surgery?
Inspired by a recent thread, I am curious to learn more about bariatric surgery and stomach stapling.
With permanent removal of a large part of your stomach, how does a person maintain good health on a severely reduced caloric intake for the rest of his/her life? Does the metabolism severely slow down? Are they eating 10 meals a day to try to get more calories? Are they ways feeling hungry, or is the satiety center of the brain going to adapt?
How does nutrition work after surgery?
