I know she isnt doing herself any favors but can she die from that behavior? Im really worried about her. Obviously its pointless if your going to continue to eat nothing but junk.
No she won't die from fast food because of her surgery, but like you said, its just not healthy. I would think anyone could eventually die from eating that frankinfood its gotta catch up to you sooner or later.

I do know junk food goes down alot easier with the band then eating clean... its really a shame that it does

Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
