If it weren’t for those pesky little food cravings, you’d have the willpower you want and the goal weight you desire. Sometimes, it takes a little more. Your bariatric team knows just how to combine the right amount of exercise, nutrition, and information to ease you into your new habits and self confidence. You can regain control over your eating and get back that “old” feeling that put confidence in power drive.
Your bariatric physician may also prescribe the newest weight loss medications to help you “kick” start your program. And, expect that your bariatric team will carefully monitor your progress.
The American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) has the most skilled providers in medical weight management. ASBP physicians have formulated guidelines to ensure the most advanced care for all those who seek treatment for overweight conditions.
The ASBP is the national non-profit professional association of physicians. Through its excellence in medical education and research, the ASBP provides its members with guidelines and procedures to follow in the practice of “quality care” bariatric medicine. So, when you select a phyisician with this professional affiliation, you can be confident knowing your physician is receiving the most up-to-date information in the field.
Overweight and obesity produce numerous health risk factors that can lead to serious diseases such as diabetes and heart conditions. Just a few pounds of weight loss can dramatically reduce your health risk profile. Your choice of a weight loss physician is an investment you make in the rest of your life and the gift you give to others who count on you.
