Courtney Love Denies Gastric Band Surgery

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?

Fit's Tips: Extra, extra, read all about it: Daily exercise and a healthy diet filled with fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean proteins are the best way to lose weight and maintain it. No news flash here, or easy by any means, but it's the truth.

The only problem with Courtney's denial of this is that she has the distinctive Lap-Band port circle above her belly-button on her left side. (The side with her hand raised.) When I go to my bariatric support group meetings and talk with women or men who've had Lap-Band and they show their bellies (cause we gastric bypassers are curious about what the port looks like and if its noticable)on some people who's weight loss hasn't balanced out yet you see the raised circle under their skin. It could be that Courtney just has a hernia there but it sure looks like the Lap-Band fill port.

Since she has openly admitted to plastic surgery, I am inclinded to believe that she would also admit additional surgery. I think her sagging skin looks like she did it through diet and exercise, rather than the rippled but tight skin you get through poorly done lipsuction. Besides, you can't lose much through lipo and she has lost it all over. Good for her!

44lbs in four months is possible, but I think it depends on how drastically you change your lifestyle. I don't really keep up on Courtney's lifestyle so maybe the macrobiotic diet was a big change for her along with yoga. I changed from white to wheat bread and gave up soda and fried foods. Along with cardio exercises three times a week I've lose forty since January. My mother had the gastric bypass surgery last year and all of her excess skin was in the arms and thighs. This picture of Courtney does make her stomach look weird though. Who knows, reshaping your body by any method can give you periods of strange transformation.

I think she got liposuction it looks like what they did to Tara Reid. Also you can't have that surgery unless you are obese and she wasn't obese she was just overweight.

I am going to have tons of excess skin even exercising and dieting the correct way, which just thinking about it bums me out, but perhaps once i have reached my ideal body weight i will have saved anough money to get it cut off. On an off note, yay for her weight loss, but her tummy looks gross. _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?

Isn't 2 lbs a week with healthy eating and dieting considered normal? Assuming 4 months were 4 weeks each, 16 weeks at 2 lbs a week would be 32 lbs. So she lost closer to 3 lbs a week. I don't think it's impossible, I've seen more. I hate that we have to doubt everyone.
