Diet plays an extremely important role in weight loss and maintenance. The chief dietician at DIOMS takes a detailed dietary history to understand your eating habits. This also helps the surgeon in deciding the correct weight loss procedure. An individualized dietary plan is prepared depending upon your likes and dislikes to be followed post surgery. This ensures compliance and contributes towards the goal of long term and significant weight loss.
The fitness coach at DIOMS keeps the patients well motivated and helps ensure healthy weight loss. Exercise is particularly important in the postoperative period as it keeps the metabolic rate up which accelerates weight loss. Also, working out leads to increase muscle mass which replaces the fat in the body contributing to strength and a sense of well being. It prevents excessive wrinkles and skin fold sagging in the older patients.
