Weight loss or Bariatric Surgery promotes weight loss in three ways:
-Limiting the amount of food you can eat at one time, by reducing the functional size of the stomach
-Reducing the amount of calories the small intestine can absorb
-Controlling a patient's hunger for food, by diminishing the hormonal drive to eat.
