About The Program
Using the latest medical research the Bariatric Medical Institute provides an evidence based program that focuses on long term weight management rather than just weight loss. Created out of frustration from seeing the weight of patients yo-yo, our program was designed after careful study of scientific, peer reviewed studies that looked not only at how individuals lost their weight, but also how they kept it off for five years or more.
We don't believe in "ideal" weights at BMI, or simple measurements like body fat percentages to tell us or you what you "should" weigh. Instead our focus is around the central theme of what we refer to as "Best Weight", which is whatever weight you reach living the healthiest life you can honestly and realistically enjoy. While undereating and overexercising certainly can lead to short term results born out of suffering, we believe you need to actually like the life you're living while you're losing the weight or else you're never going to keep it off. Simply put, there comes a point when a person can't happily eat less and can't happily exercise more and your weight living that life is what we call your Best Weight.
Of course, as with anything complicated in life, there are proven strategies that greatly improve your odds of success. Much like telling someone that they should "buy low and sell high" to make money in the stock market, telling someone "eat less and exercise more" for weight loss has little value. Utilizing the latest research, our staff of health professionals work with you one-on-one to guide you using the most effective methods of weight management.
Since opening in 2004, the Bariatric Medical Institute has helped thousands of patients with their weight struggles. While we still follow many of the same principles from when we first opened our doors, our program is constantly improving as new research provides more and more insight into the struggles of this complex disease. What remains constant is that for each individual we provide individually and scientifically derived solutions, one-on-one, to help you discover your Best Weight.
