Consecutive patients, between 18 and 54 years, suffering from morbid obesity (greater than or equal to 60 per cent overweight) are being randomized to either gastroplasty a.m. Gomez or to a very-low-calorie diet (341 kcal, 1.43 MJ) based on a high-value protein powder with an admixture of calcium, phosphate, sodium, chloride, and magnesium. Through a supplementary daily vitamin-mineral capsule and three tablets of potassium chloride the total regime complies with the 1980 RDA. After initial hospitalization, both groups are seen as out-patients. Twenty-eight patients have so far been studied and none has dropped out. Preliminary results show a substantial weight lose without significant differences between the groups.
