Phase 3: Maintenance
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!
