Morbid Obesity, Bariatric Surgery and The Post Christmas Blues

Share Article

Christmas has come and gone again, but unfortunately for the morbidly obese it's a time of year often filled with regret, embarrassment and humiliation. In a controversial new report by morbid obesity sufferer Julianne Kennedy, she exposes what she claims are the 7 reasons morbid obesity is inevitable for sufferers and why any personal decisions about bariatric surgery must come from a new mindset.

Most morbid obesity sufferers are extremely self-conscious of their size and can find eating and spending time with average sized people a difficult and humiliating experience. So Christmas can be a dreaded occasion because it's a time of the year when they must be 'seen' by family and their spouses. Then the days that follow come with the regret of indulging in the typical Christmas foods.

Julianne Kennedy takes a stand against these unwanted feelings in her report, titled "Weight Loss Surgery, The Age of Consumer Diligence & How It Effects You", where she claims our consumerist-society is actually geared for a specific section of the community to fail in their weight and health goals -- namely, the morbidly obese.

In a docu-story style, Kennedy has written the report as if she is presenting from the stage to a room full of what she calls 'thin' blamers and finger-pointers, lambasting with research data and references anyone with the nerve to speak-up against her.

While this fantasy-scenario Kennedy has created will appeal to readers struggling with obesity (read their comments here the report does cover 7 well thought-out reasons why morbid-obesity is inevitable for sufferers, including genes and food addiction.

Kennedy's strongest argument is her belief morbid obesity is an eating disorder similar to anorexia nervosa, but unlike anorexia, morbid obesity sufferers get none of the compassion or understanding, instead treated as if "lazy, pathetic or worse".

The disorder, she says, manifests as an addiction to food, but whereas an alcoholic can avoid the liquor store, a food addict cannot rely on the same strategy because every single day he or she is bombarded with many adverts compelling them to eat, fast food restaurants are everywhere and even the average workplace has vending machines stocked with junk food.

Kennedy claims the biggest obstacle to making smart consumption decisions is finding complete and balanced information on the products we consume, since most available information is actually what she calls "marketing-spin" put out by manufacturers and retailers.

She goes as far as to define the present day as "The Age of Consumer Diligence" because if we do not do our due-diligence, we will base our consumption decisions on self-serving marketing-spin disguised as credible information. Kennedy distills the notion down to "Be diligent or perish".

Since weight loss surgery is a $40,000 decision with potential dire consequences, Kennedy says candidates should look beyond the usual, easily available information before deciding if bariatric surgery is the best personal choice.
