Overall Success

Category Diet, Exercise, Health

A recent article in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics discusses counseling and interventional avenues for weight loss in overweight and obese individuals.  A specific quote from the article is as follows:

“It is important to note that longer-term comprehensive lifestyle interventions (>1 year) produce greater weight losses, and that long-term interventions are more successful in stemming weight regain.”

This is one reason why the surgical weight loss tool combined with diet and exercise changes can achieve such success.  The SWL tool is a permanent tool that can help you on your healthy journey.  Our program also follows you for life with physician supervised weight loss and diet and exercise assistance.  It is important to stay in touch with our program and use us to help you achieve your goals.  Our program hopes to be here for you not just for one year, but for your lifetime!
