Dr Chen Weighs In “Your Body is Not Amazon Prime” By Edmund B. Chen on December 14, 2022

As weight diminishes, monitoring vitamin and mineral levels is important.  This helps ensure that the body has the necessary building blocks it requires to stay healthy. In addition, adherence to an exercise regime is essential after surgery, as this helps build muscle mass and increases your body’s resting metabolism.  #weightloss

A patient’s weight loss journey is their own.  Depending on a myriad of factors, the amount of weight one patient loses in a given amount of time can be very different from that of another patient.  It is hard not to do, but try not to compare your numbers with someone else.  With the proper adherence to diet, exercise, and vitamin regimes after surgery, you will achieve great results after bariatric surgery, all in your own unique time.
