I am curious if anyone has had gastric bypass or the lap band surgery and is a raw foodist?

My mom has had a gastric bypass and she will be taking the Raw challenge in mid-September.

I had gastric bypass surgery in 2005. I am transitioning into raw. I have been a vegetarian for the last 8 months and vegan the last 3. I am going to go raw more gradually because I still have some issues I'm working on and I feel if I just eat lots of fruit and veggies. I am off to a good start. My issues I'm working on are coffee and bread.

if you are thinking about having the surgery, i strongly suggest you check out the site: http://www.rawfoodbootcamp.com before doing the surgery.
there are women on there who have lost the same amount of weight as they would on GP just by doing the low fat raw/exercise route.
