I am a physician and bariatric patient. Not a common combination by any means.
Bariatric surgery was one of the best decisions I ever made in my life, second only to going to medical school. The weight I lost after my surgery changed how people treated me, improved my self-confidence and really helped my career.
The surgery did a great job of kick-starting my weight loss.
But it was only a start…
I lost 70lb total but my weight soon stagnated and it took me a further four years before I was able to fully unlock the secrets to post-bariatric success.
This is when I truly began to understand obesity as a hormonal disease and to treat it as such.
Soon after this, I rapidly began to lose weight, but more importantly, keep it off. Eventually reaching my goal weight and sustaining it for over 5 years now.
The four years of weight loss plateau were incredibly difficult. After my surgery, I expected to reach my goal weight within 12 months… And I could have if I had known then what I do now.
As a physician and bariatric patient, I feel it is my duty of care to help as many people as possible…
Which is exactly why I created Bariatric Secrets!
Wishing you every success,
