Dr. Robert Cywes

Dr Robert Cywes is an expert at weight loss surgeries. But if it were up to him, he might not do any of them. His first step is always to help his patients break their addiction to carbohydrates. He still uses surgery in the right situation, but he is the first to admit that surgery without addressing the underling carbohydrate problem is destined to fail. His focus on emotional attachment, finding alternative to meet our emotional needs, and whole lifestyle intervention is a refreshing break from the “just have this surgery and everything gets better” approach. If you or a loved one is thinking about bariatric surgery or struggling with weight loss, this episode is for you.

  1. Oh My Gosh! This was wonderful! I wish it had been a video instead of audio – but I learned so much from it that I plan to listen all the way through one more time. Well done. Thank you so much!

    1. I was interested in a video too, found this same interview on the Diet Doctor You Tube channel.

  2. I’m not even 10 mins in and couldn’t agree more. Our medical professionals need to be educated on carbs!! I’ve followed Dr Zoe Harcombe lifestyle for over 4 years. Wish they would subscribe this sort of education. Sadly people are not aware how bad a drug sugar is.

  3. My wife and I have watched a lot of your videos and I respect you greatly for what you say. I know this has nothing to do with what you specialty is but my father is 95 years old, walks with a walker, but is getting weaker and weaker. I am asking you for a silver bullet to give him that will QUICKLY increase his energy level. if you have any suggestions please let me know. Thank you for all you do.

    1. Hi Lee,

      Thank you for the kind words! We’re really glad Dr. Scher’s videos have helped.

      While we wish we could provide a silver bullet, everyone’s body and health are different and what works for one person may not for another. Dr. Scher apologizes that he couldn’t be more help and wishes you and your father the best.

  4. Please bring Dr. Cywes back and ask him about RNY gastric bypass. I realize he says he doesn’t do it. However, there are MANY RNY patients who had it long ago (2005 for me) and we desparately NEED HELP. – especially, with how to eat and get enough good nutrients because we have lived for years with a malabsorption problem – so how do we mitigate that and take care of ourselves to the best of our ability. PLEASE don’t ignore the number of people who are out here in the world – who have had this drastic surgery and now are doing the best we can – but there is LITTLE good advice.
