Although it is true that this works for a little while, we can never truly beat the effects of time, nor can we turn the clock back and change our past lifestyle . Those who believe that they may outrun time or change what has already been done will inevitably discover themselves on the losing side of that particular discussion with Mother Nature. unfortunately, Mother nature will win out every time.

One thing which can be said and which has been proven time and again is this. The more you mess around with the natural order of life, the more chance there is that you will seriously end up on the losing end of that argument! There is a very famous line from one of the Star Trek movies which applies here. "The more they re-think the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain" was spoken by Montgomery Scott (Scotty) I believe in "Star Trek 3. The Search For Spock". That may not be the exact line verbatim as it was spoken by the character, but it is close enough to the make the point,and the point here is that the more you decide to change what you have been given by God, the more you are chancing having to deal with the consequences at some time in your Life !

The main reason that people decide on undertaking Gastric Band Surgery is to change there existing lifestyle for a better, more healthy one.
