    Why is it that after wls you can eat tiny amounts and not faint? is it something to do with how the gut hormones now work after a bypass?

    Hi Kitten.

    What a great question!

    I’m not clinically qualified to answer it but I can ask someone who is, for you. Please leave it with me 😉

    Hi Kitten.

    I have just had this back from Mr Chris Pring:

    ‘Your body is very good at adapting and regulating itself. Indeed, hormone interactions are part of this process.
    However good dietitian follow up is also important. This is something Streamline really focuses on’

    How’s that for a quick answer!

    Thanks for asking the question as I too was really interested to have a definitive answer.

    Wow, that was a quick response! Thank you – reminded me of a snake I used to have, he seemed to be able to regulate his metabolic process too!

    Haha! That made me chuckle. Glad we don’t have to wriggle along on our bellies though. What on earth would I do with my rather extensive shoe collection?
