How To Lose Weight And Keep It Off
One of the most difficult things about weight loss is finding a program that is right for you. With so many fad diets out there that will help you lose weight quickly, they usually lead to people gaining the weight back right away. Here at Vanguard Gastroenterology, we have a unique weight management program that’s designed to help you develop sustainable, long-term healthy habits that’s called Integrative Weight Management Program or IWMP.
What Is IWMP?
The Kips Bay Integrative Weight Management Program is a one-year program for patients, like you, who have tried other weight loss programs in the past but haven’t found success. We offer two different weight loss options. The first option is a non-surgical endoscopic intervention that goes along with our integrated lifestyle plan. The other option is solely a lifestyle approach.
If you are a suitable candidate for endoscopic intervention, then you will go through a non-surgical endoscopic balloon or sleeve procedure. The balloon works by taking up volume and space in your stomach which then acts as an appetite suppressant. It will make you feel full faster and less hungry and usually only stays in your stomach for six months.
The lifestyle plan that we use at Vanguard Gastroenterology can be done alone or with endoscopic intervention. We understand that weight management is both a physical and emotional condition. Which is why we have created a program that integrates medical support with a highly skilled team of lifestyle coach, sports medicine physicians, nutritionists, and advocates. These people are here to help you meet and maintain your long-term weight loss goals.
