SW Radio Interview.


Silver Member
Today - there was a report into the links between people having gastric bands and their decreasing chance of diabetes/reduction of insulin dependance - BBC News - Type 2 diabetes 'cut' after weight-loss surgery

My local radio station then contacted my local team developer (who is a consultant as well of course) - about an interview to put forward that there is no need for gastric band to loose weight. She nominated myself and another local guy to talk to them this morning (We have both lost over 15.5st each and he was 6th place at the National Greatest Loser awards last week, whilst I came in 5th).

The interview can be found on iplayer:

BBC iPlayer - Annie Othen: 13/04/2011 (forward to about 1hr7min for the start of our segment)

I'd love to meet this leading bariatic specialist though who believes bariatic surgery is the ONLY proven way to combat morbid obesity.

Trying again in 2012
Ian, you and lots of other inspiring folks on here are living proof that invasive, possibly potentially dangerous surgery is not the only way. It might be the right way for some people but it doesn't have to be the only option. Well done you for all you've achieved and for getting to put your point acorss!!!
I can only echo what Cherrypie said, you truly are an inspiration :)

Although I did nearly fall off my chair when I heard that the other chap had lost 15 stone in a year :eek:
