Transcript

After surgery, one of the main concerns that patients have is regaining weight. Although that can occur, as long as the patient continues to eat relatively healthy food, they eat small portions, and they continue to exercise, it's very unlikely that that patient would regain weight. When you hear stories of patients regaining significant amounts of weight, it's usually the scenario that that patient has stopped following all of the recommendations that we've given them and they are now eating junk food, eating a lot of carbs, eating a high volume of food, eating a lot of sweets, and generally eating foods that are unhealthy for them. If you follow our guidelines and adopt a healthy lifestyle, it will be possible for you to maintain a significant amount of weight loss for the rest of your life and probably be much healthier as well.
