Dr. H. Joseph Naim shares how patients at the Tri-City Regional Bariatric Program are provided with dietary support and weight loss education classes.

Dr. Naim:
I want to emphasize that these are not diet programs. These are surgeries, and basically the only diet then you have to be on to is eat healthy and be active. So we will have booklets that we will provide you and have dietitian that will contact you, and we will tell you what to do today to make the right choices. Basically low-calorie diet, it’s what you are recommended, and if you make healthy choices, that’s all you need to do to have the good results.
