[ Life]

Wilson Phillips singer Carnie Wilson has undergone a second gastric bypass surgery, she confirmed to People Magazine.

The weight-loss surgery was performed in January, and since then Wilson says she’s lost 30 pounds. The singer underwent the same procedure in 1999 and had great success–losing 150 pounds–and even showed off her newly svelte body in 2003 by posing nude in Playboy.

But her weight has continued to yo-yo since then, and Wilson says it’s been that way her entire life. She even filmed a reality show in 2010 called “Carnie Wilson: Unstapled” that followed her battle with weight loss. She says she really struggled to keep the weight off after she had two children.

Doctors warn that gastric bypass surgery doesn’t come without dangers, or a slew of side effects, such as nausea and discomfort ranging from mild to extremely painful. Dr. Larry Gellman, co-director of Bariatric Surgery at Long Island Jewish Medical Center and does not treat Wilson personally, says that often the reason a patient might undergo such a risky procedure twice is that the stomach has stretched out after the first surgery, rendering it ineffective.

But it shouldn’t be viewed as a quick fix, he says.

“Many patients lose a ton of weight but never learn to adjust their behavior and eating habits,” says Gellman. “If he or she doesn’t change their behaviors, then the chances for failure are high.”

    IF SHE DIDN’T PLAY BY THE RULES THE FIRST TIME, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK A 2ND TIME IS THE CHARM…OR DOES SHE NEED A THIRD ONE…MANY PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO LOOSE A GREAT DEAL OF WEIGHT BY EATING RIGHT AND EXERCISING…I’VE SEEN MANY INDIVIDUALS THAT TAKE THE EASY WAY ( AND DANGEROUS WAY ) LIKE CARNIE AND GAIN THE WEIGHT BACK BECAUSE THEY NEVER GET THAT THEY HAVE TO CHANGE THE WAYS THAT GOT THEM OBESE…

      So you know lots of people who lost weight through diet and exercise, huh??? And these marvels also kept the weight off long-term? If so, that is unusual. 98% of people regain weight lost from diet and exercise; 20% of people regain weight after gastric bypass.

        And where do you get your statistics?

        I have lost 70 lbs and kept it off for 4 years. I will NEVER regain it. I learned how to adjust my lifestyle and thus my body has adjusted. I can’t eat processed food anymore or I have to drink a gallon of water because of all the salt in it. Then I feel bloated and awful for days. I HAD to change or the weight would never have come off.

        Now, people who have this surgery don’t HAVE to do that. They eat whatever, just a lot less of it because their stomach has no space. Until it stretches back out again. See Carnie Wilson as an example.

        I think bypass is the new quick fix, and now that time is passing, we are seeing that the quick fix doesn’t last forever. This will happen to more and more people as time goes by.

          Dora, I’m glad you revealed that, and it makes sense, because back in the days when people grew and raised their own food, they didn’t use so much salt and, CHEMICALS. I think they have something to do with it too, I know food taste better WITHOUT them…

            I had gastric bypass in 1992 and went from 434 pounds to 148 pounds and even though my weight varies by ten pounds either way, I had to change a lot of bad habits and include a few good ones into my daily routine. If you have surgery or do it naturally, either way you need to incorporate new behaviors and modify old ones for either one to be effective.

    What most of you don’t understand is that sometimes you have to find out the hard way how to deal with the emotions attached to eating. It’s an addiction to food. Society doesn’t accept food addiction the way it accepts alcohol or drug addiction. Trust me, it’s pretty much the same thing —- I honor Carnie’s choice and I wish her nothing but the best.
