33-year-old ‘Precious’ star Gabourey Sidibe just revealed that she underwent GASTRIC By-pass surgery in order to lose weight!
Sidibe specifically had laproscopic bariatric surgery; and in her new memoir ‘This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare’ she writes: “My surgeon said they’d cut my stomach in half. This would limit my hunger and capacity to eat. My brain chemistry would change and I’d want to eat healthier. I’ll take it! My lifelong relationship with food had to change. I wasn’t cheating by getting it done. I wouldn’t have been able to lose as much as I’ve lost without it.”
Speaking to PEOPLE Magazine about the new book and surgery Sidibe says: “I just didn’t want to worry. I truly didn’t want to worry about all the effects that go along with diabetes. I genuinely [would] worry all the time about losing my toes.” Let us know what you think; and have YOU had any friends undergo gastric bypass treatment?
