Obesity is a really big problem of the modern society – junk food, stress, busy lifestyle, pollutants, processed food and genetics have all played a really big role in that. And, since the number of obese children is on the rise, I dare to say that we are not even close to seeing the end of this problem. I’m sure you know obesity can be a huge health risk so being abnormally overweight unfortunately means a person will probably not live to see his grandchildren. Do desperate times cause for desperate measures? Here, take a look at this list of 7 very radical alleged and proven obesity cures and tell me what do you think about it.
1. Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery or gastric bypass is, by far, one of the most radical cures for obesity. This procedure involves significantly reducing the stomach size and bypassing the small intestine so the patient can expect a quick, radical weight loss. Now, this procedure definitely takes the person out of the risky zone for developing many obesity induced diseases but it’s not a magical solution and gastric bypass patients don’t hide that their life and habits had to change significantly after this surgery. Tiny portions, lots and lots of supplements and the increased risk of anemia and osteoporosis might sound bad but that’s what they had to choose in order to survive long enough to enjoy retirement and grandkids.
