So, I just saw a commercial for the lap band lifestyle.

They recommended getting it if you have at least 30 lbs to lose.

30 LBS. Like that's really enough extra weight to justify surgery that essentially mimics an eating disorder.


For fuck's sake. I mean, I understand that there have to be thresholds for any kind of weight loss surgery, but 30 lbs is very low.

Thoughts? Has anyone gotten lap bands and am I overreacting to what's basically an easy procedure to get and heal from?
