Phase 3 of the Protein Sparing Modified Fasting diet is the Free Lifetime Maintenance Phase. This portion of our program is the final and most important phase. Patients who have remained actively involved in a supervised weight maintenance program have achieved 100% success in keeping their weight off. In the 18 months that follow your bariatric diet you'll confront the inevitable hurdles to weight loss: holidays, vacations, stressors, etc. We know you are human and understand these things can lead to weight re-gain. Our bariatric specialists will continue to counsel you on dietary recommendations, exercise, and building new, healthier relationships with food. We measure our success by your ability to maintain your goal weight long after you've graduated from our program. We make sure you are equipped with the right information to re-enter a world full of temptations and confusing choices. Reaching your goal is not the end of our relationship, it's just the begining!
