    Cofee, two eggs, and a fresh fruit, coconut oil and honey smoothie for breakfast - 4 portioned meals of grilled chicken or fish, olive oil, leafy green vegetables and hydration a day, weight training for 45 mins 4× a week. With 1 alliwed cheat meal a week...... and there is no way you wont lose weight and keep it off forever. Or fly to Mexico and have your intestines mauled by Paco and his hombres.

    The problem is not going to another country, people goes to surgery every day and they dont have those issues, but the problem is they dont investigate the doctors..they go with charlatans playing doctors. And that is the problem.

    My aunt lives in the USA and she wanted to have a breast implant or something like that and she went to a doctor in there and 2 weeks one of the implant exploded, she came here to Mexico to get everything solved and she is better now ,I think we shouldn’t generalice, in every country that can happen, the thing is you have to do your homework and investigate, ask recommendations all that.

    Guess you get what you pay for??? idk....Plus, this is an elective cosmetic procedure NOT considered health care (not until the aftermath hits after you go out of the country, (NOT just Mexico, folks!) for surgery, get butchered and then come back to the US, start suffering the consequences and complications--including infections, diseases, etc.)Yeah, Then it becomes health care, due to your risk-taking and uneducated choices; which THEN results in "Guess which country and it's people get/have to pay (generally speaking thank you) to cure and treat you because of your decisions and choices? Sorry not sorry.

    I think this is completely insane, like an act of war. They knew enough to know what they did to those people hurting them, not helping them. How do you leave a woman with an open stomach? Then he comes out and vacuums out a blood clot when she is dripping in blood. Freddy Kruger couldn't have mangled her up that much. God is keeping her alive and it is a miracle.
    I think this is an act of war on the US and Americans. They lured them over there and made them all kinds of false promises and had a nice clean clinic, so it would fool them. All they wanted to do was make fools of Americans, steal their money and leave them to die.
    I don't know how they are going to sue these people in Mexico. I guess their lawsuit is about them advertising in the US trying to get gullible people to trust them. It is worse than those time share salesmen who give you a free cheap electronic or some free trip and then insist you buy some rental property that you have to pay for the rest of your life. They steal your money, but these people stole their health, happiness and lives.
    They have lap bands eating through their stomachs, and then what they did to that woman, it is obscene. A ruptured spleen kills people. For all they know, these unscrupulous doctors lifted out a few organs too so they could sell them. They treated these people like pieces of meat. It is sadistic and evil. Oh and people say these countries have good deals? That is subjective.

    Um did she research the place where she was going to get surgery? Personally I think Mexico City is a good place to check in for surgery maybe it’s because a good amount of my family lives there and they know what surgeons are good but my cousin got lipo hers turned out good and when I went to get my nose job the surgeon actually put me in a special room after surgery like a sweet almost just because I told them I was coming from the states it’s been a year or two now almost three and I’ve been fine

So she decides to wait and got new insurance so sometime in 2019 she will get the surgery. They could’ve gotten different insurance

    Tijuana, Mexico? Those two words should have been a tip off. Why would they take the word of a salesperson? Somebody they may not even know. Why would they go to a medical facility sight unseen, in another country (especially alone) to have major abdominal surgery ? At the end of the day it doesn't matter. They didn't deserve to be mutilated, become septic or almost die in this f--ked up situation.

    Is there a reason these people could not find a way to exercise? These people weren’t even that overweight to begin with...With a healthy diet and exercise, these people could of easily lost the weight they wanted in a year/year in a half. There’s always healthier options. While there’s nothing wrong with going to Mexico for surgery. *DO YOUR RESEARCH* for months, or years if that. Don’t just find the cheapest surgeon that’s willing to do this for $100 and a case of beer. 😐

    Destiny Bordeaux, In the United States, when having dental work done, the dentist provides "Hold Harmless clauses" in the documentation you are required to sign. Have you ever tried to litigate a dentist for substandard work? I have. By the time you pay your malpractice attorney and the prolong, extended time (years) it takes to navigate our overwhelmed, dysfunctional legal system, you will most likely decide that it is not a system that serves you and realize that it only serves some. The legal system has fiduciary to the business and less to the customer (formally known as patience). Legal protection for the average monetized person is truly an illusion and dentists know this. If you, Ms. Bordeaux are a person with excessive money to spare, and you have trust in the legal system and trust your dentist, then knock you socks off. Ask yourself Ms. Bordeaux, critical thinking woman that you are, why it is that over 6000 patients in the winter go to Algodondes each DAY? Something must be grossly inadequate in the richest country in the world... But of course, Ms. Bordeaux it is all about you and what YOU have that matters.

    I’m not really sure what these people are thinking when they decide that is a responsible and sensible thing to go to Mexico and get surgery.
    You cannot cheap out on surgery or medical care, it is not an option.
    And they ask why this is not covered by insurance? Well, guess what.. tax money should not be going towards obese patients that can’t control their diet, only an extremely low percentage of obese people is that way due diseases or illnesses, the rest of them Just can’t control their mouth.

    So moral of the story, dont take a random list and pick your doctor out a hat. Do your own research before you ,as they said, assume, someone has credentials. Trying to blame Mexico instead of the people you paid to give you that list of doctors in the first place. Smh.

    1st of all, it's sad that people have to travel to another country to get surgeries. 2nd don't get surgery in Tijuana (have y'all not heard the horror stories?!). 3rd Mexico has great surgeons. 4th certified surgeons have the same qualifications as american, certified surgeons. There's a treaty. 5th you still have to research credentials, just like in the US.
    One of the victims said someone he knew had said that the clinic looked nice and clean and whatever, that is not researching. You have to look up real credentials, research the hospital/clinics.
    Another victim also said that he assumed the doctors had credentials...why would you assume? Why not research just to be sure?

Except my neighbor was losing weight to rapidly which was kinda scary for her 350lbs and lost 110 in month an half but now 4 years later she looks great. I used dr.N from the 600lb show 18 years ago but slowly gaining back but without the same insurance I'm try Mexico in March and bring my daughter in June just for the lap band she's 17 need to lose about 40lbs but I'm still a little skeptical but then again we both lost on keto real well so I'm confused.

Just nonsense. This is US government campaign against Mexico. Your story is not believable. They went to the surgery in Tijuana and the very next day were in the US without after care?... that means they expected to lose weight at a very low cost? I remind you 1 $US dollar is more than $20 Mexican pesos. Your story is just ridiculous... Nobody in Mexico to help them? Come on! liers! You never been to Mexico.

    None of these people were so big that they couldn't diet and exercise the weight off. 250 lbs on a woman isn't so big that it would be hard to lose weight. She could have lost at least 50lbs a year at a pound a week. Same for the men. They were hefty but they were not pushing 500 pounds or anything like that.
