Worldwide, obesity has doubled since 1980. In 2014 the World Health Organisation (WHO) reported that 1.9 billion adults were overweight with 600 million of those being obese. Obesity kills more people per year than being underweight and it is preventable. Bariatric surgery - weight loss surgery - are surgical methods to help people achieve weight loss. This year, Texan writer Rocky Hatley underwent surgery to achieve weight loss. As at the time of posting, Rocky has lost 42.18kg (93 pounds)!
