The small intestine is divided about 18 inches below the stomach, and is re-arranged so as to provide an outlet to the small stomach and maintain the flow of digestive juices.
The lower part of the stomach is “bypassed”, and food enters the second part of the small bowel within about 10 minutes of the start of your meal. Food intake is restricted and the amount of calories and nutrients the body absorbs is reduced.
The result is a very early sense of fullness, followed by a profound sense of satisfaction. Even though the food portion size may be small, you won’t feel hungry or feel like you’ve been deprived. You’ll continue to enjoy food, you’ll just consume a lot less.
