Weight loss surgery is just one tool to help you lose weight. It is not the end-all, be-all solution to all of your weight loss challenges. When it comes to losing and keeping off weight, a healthy diet and regular exercise are always part of the equation.
Your body needs food for fuel, but eating the right foods is essential to maintaining weight loss and keeping those extra pounds off. We understand that, for many of our patients, an unhealthy relationship with food has contributed to their years-long struggle with their weight. That’s why we’re committed to helping our patients improve their relationship with food and implement healthy lifestyle changes to lose weight and keep it off long-term.
At McCarty Weight Loss Center, our patients have access to a variety of educational resources — including counseling programs and pre-packaged meal services — that help take the guesswork out of proper nutrition. We fully evaluate each patient’s caloric requirements, medical history and cardiovascular health, presenting them with precisely what they need to stay on track with their goals.
We understand that the best way to build successful long-term eating habits is to eat foods you enjoy. That said, post-surgery, you’ll also need to follow very specific dietary recommendations designed to get your body burning fat as efficiently as possible. We will work with you to find an approach to sticking to your nutritional plan that’s both sensible and enjoyable.
