Behavioral Therapy

BEHAVIORAL THERAPY


Bariatric medicine addresses issues of diet, behavior, and weight maintenance as well as emotional responses to obesity.

Whether you lose weight using Appetite Suppressants or Hormone therapy, the results may be temporary if your attitude towards food, health and fitness is not positively altered.

You may go back or fall into an unhealthy lifestyle, which may cause you to regain the weight you lost! Many people show emotional responses of having low self-esteem and less confidence due to their obesity. To have a lasting success, medications alone are not sufficient.

You need a Coach, who understands your lifestyle, eating habits etc and guide you every step of your way. At Chicago Weight Loss & Wellness Clinic, our physician or one of his professionally trained associates will counsel you in various areas and provide motivational suggestions and therapy which can be practiced daily without fad diets.
