Medical weight loss possibilities


Q: I am curious about medical procedures for weight loss. I know diet and exercise are the best way, however I am not interested. I have tried regiments of diet and exercise in the past with positive results, however I tend to gain twice the weight back 10 times as quickly. I am 26 years old and I weight about 330 lbs, I have gained, lost and then gained again (approximately 100 lbs in each stretch) over the past 10 years. Cosmetic issues and long term health is really not an issue to me at this point, as long as what ever procedure I would undertake would not pose a significant threat to my current health. I simply want to weight less.
