Courtney Love, former singer in the band Hole, has lost a ton of weight in a short amount of time. She says that she owes it all to Yoga and her macrobiotic diet filled with whole grains and fish, but a friend recently admitted that:
"She's telling people she got the gastric band surgery. She even said she had to sleep with a towel by her because the surgery makes her [vomit] all the time and is worried she won't be able to make out with anyone because of her breath."
A representative for Love says that it's not true - she never got the surgery, but she lost 44 pounds in just 4 months - that sounds an awful lot like surgery.

Basically when you have gastric band surgery, a band is placed around the uppermost part of the stomach. This band divides the stomach into two portions: one small and one larger portion. Since the stomach is divided into smaller parts, most patients feel full faster, so they eat much less.
I worry about celebs since they are pressured to look a certain way. They have the moolah for these expensive, quick fix weight loss shortcuts. They're not healthy for the body and definitely not necessary for a person who was already thin. Loose, flabby skin is a side effect from quick weight loss. Not so attractive, huh?
