What can a Bariatric Coach do for me?

        Welcome Bariatric Coaching Meet Dr. Robbie Testimonials Resources Before & After Contact

Emotional eating issues don't disappear with a Lap-Band or Realize Band. Gastric band patients who get coaching

have better results with the band. Only 50% of your weight loss outcome is attributable to the band; the rest

depends on what you do with it! Support is crucial to having a successful and satisfying life with a band.

What is Bariatric Life Coaching?

The purpose of bariatric life coaching is to insure a positive outcome for your bariatric surgery. Whatever drove

you to overeat prior to surgery will still be there after surgery. You need support to help you manage this (what

comes up when you are not overeating) to promote your success with the band.

I will be there to support you every step of the way, making this transition to health a positive and

successful one.
