Hello,

You can reduce weight in a natural way using a proper customized diet plan and exercise. But if you are interested to go with surgery, then make sure you understand the post-surgery plan.

You need to chew your food well if not you may vomit your intake will reduce, but gradually can improve you cannot gulp things, you may require B-complex tablets lifelong along with high protein supplementation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
