Last June, Samantha King’s life changed dramatically. After a lifetime of struggling with her weight, the 35-year-old Wicklow woman had decided to have a gastric bypass. She saw all the necessary doctors and was deemed suitable. After 18 months of waiting, she got a call from St Vincent’s Hospital with a date for the procedure. Her private health insurance covered the cost of the operation.

In preparation, she was told that she had to go on a liver-reduction diet for 10 days. This is a low-calorie, low-fat, low-carb restrictive diet that reduces glycogen, water, and fatty deposits in the liver to make it smaller.
