Weight Loss Resources
Below, we have listed some resources that will be especially helpful for former and current patients of the ProMedica Toledo Hospital Metabolic and Bariatric Center. If you are currently considering bariatric surgery, these resources will be helpful for you also, as they will give you an idea of what the post-surgery experience will be like.
Keep in mind that bariatric surgery is not for everyone. If you’re at all curious about your potential as a candidate for bariatric surgery, we encourage you to attend one of our monthly bariatric seminars. However, if it is possible for you to lose weight through diet and exercise, you should strongly consider those options first. Find out more about how we can help you get started through our Wildwood Club Healthy Weight fitness program.
If you are a current or former patient, you can find resources here to monitor your weight loss and keep it going through healthy lifestyle changes. In the mood for trying a new, healthy recipe? Download our patient cookbook and get cooking!
Benefits of Weight Loss
Decreased risk of disease, increased energy, even a longer life-- the list of long-term benefits from weight loss is impressive. Find out more about how healthy, sustained weight loss can impact your life and health positively.
Life with diabetes can be challenging and at times uncomfortable. You can, however, improve your condition with lifestyle changes and changes in diet. Did you know that weight loss surgery can significantly improve or even resolve diabetes?
When a little extra weight turns into too much extra weight, the result is a medical condition known as obesity. Educating yourself on obesity and its attendant health risks is the first step toward fighting this epidemic.
Eating Well after Bariatric Surgery
Your dietary needs will change dramatically after bariatric surgery. You’ll also have different nutritional needs and will need to be diligent about making sure they’re met. The good news is that we support all of our patients post-surgery with meal plan suggestions-- so you’ll never have a problem knowing what to eat.
Any challenge is more difficult when you face it by yourself than when you face it with support from others. Our support group is a great forum in which you can talk face-to-face with others who are going through the process of bariatric surgery and making changes to their lives as a result.
