    Does the Primal Blueprint help with severe obesity?

    My sister is going to get her stomach stapled in the next couple of months, but I really don't want her to do it. I was wondering if the Primal Blueprint may be an option for her? She is severely obese, no diets have ever worked for her, and I don't want to give her a diet, but a lifestyle option other than the surgery. I was just curious if anyone else knows anyone or has personally experienced a dramatic weight loss following the Primal Blueprint?

    Any information at all would be helpful! Thanks so much!

    I know two people who had the lap band surgery. Both lost weight initially and then regained it all as they stretched their stomachs back out. One is now eating paleo and losing weight.

    I'd say so. She couldn't possibly gain weight, could she?
    Perhaps you could give her the book and request that she try it- properly and not just for a week- before going in for surgery.

    There are a few people on here who have lost well more than a hundred pounds. Check out the success stories thread.

    PLEASE try to convince her to do this as a last ditch effort ... because the doctor is going to make her go low carb afterwards anyway. <50 is the standard with them.

    There's a whole cluster of women here who've lost in the range of about 70 pounds (and still going), and some others who have lost even more. Plenty of guys with 100+ down.

    This is easy and dare I say fun to do, as it's the way our bodies were meant to eat all along. It's not a diet and is easily sustainable. I used to be totally out of control with the food, and now the thought of food doesn't even occur to me until 1 p.m. most days.

    Tell her to get her butt over here. We can help support her. Lots of good people here.

    Many people have conquered extreme obesity with primal. I posted a list of success stories here. Primal is an easy lifelong way to be healthy.
    Ancestral Health Info

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
