  • Diet
    To lose weight, your body must burn more calories than you eat and/or drink. A diet plan should be based on your health and lifestyle needs, and would include reducing the number of calories you take in. If you are considering this option, speak with your primary care physician about nutritional guidelines, and keep in mind that many bariatric programs also offer medically supervised weight loss programs .ExerciseFrequent and regular physical activity is beneficial to most anyone-whether they are pre- or postsurgery. Generally, an exercise program includes cardiovascular exercise such as walking, swimming, or cycling, strength training using resistance bands, weights, or machines and stretching. Speak with your primary care physician before beginning any physical activity.

    Prescription Weight Loss Medications

    Prescription weight loss medications may be considered a supplement to diet and exercise. Only a healthcare professional can prescribe these weight loss medications.

    Bariatric Surgery

    Gastric banding is a restrictive surgical procedure. During this procedure, two medical devices are implanted in the patient: a silicone band and an injection port. The silicone band is placed around the upper part of the stomach and molds the stomach into two connected chambers. The injection port is attached to the abdominal wall, underneath the skin. The port is connected to the band with soft, thin tubing.. Dieters rarely succeed on the first try .For many,it can be a long,exhausting road of failure and discouragement,but for those who have attempted multiple diets without success,there are options to get them on the path to a healthier weight and a healthier life .In addition to medically supervised weight-loss programs,University Hospital's Weight Management Center is now offering laparoscopic gastric banding,a surgical procedure where an adjustable band is placed around the stomach,which helps patients feel full sooner and with less food
