Learn to trust your body to maximize your success
Since the introduction of gastric bypass, lapbanding and gastric sleeve surgeries, we at Green Mountain have worked with many women both before and after surgery to help them successfully manage their unique nutrition, dietary and behavioral needs. Often this includes individual menu modifications as well as re-education about nutrition, food and cooking considerations due to the changes that result from the surgery.
Behaviorally, changes that are important to successful results surround mindful eating, emotional eating, body image, and self-esteem. As is the case with other special populations we work with, we recognize that each woman is different. We attempt to bring the expertise needed for each woman to increase her chances of long-term success at achieving health and healthy weights. This occurs in conjunction with our renowned all-women healthy weight loss and lifestyle program.
For women planning or who have had gastric surgery, the Green Mountain lifestyle approach provides an excellent foundation for ensuring a long-term optimal outcome. As you can imagine, changing the way you think about food, eating, your body and your weight, and becoming more effective in dealing with the emotions that lead you to eat, is key to your success. Surgery does not change those old behaviors.
More importantly, Green Mountain’s almost 40-year program offering women a practical healthy lifestyle approach, without dieting, provides a strong foundation for lasting change, for both your weight and general health.
