About

Bio

I am been practicing bariatric (weight loss) medicine for 35 years. Our practice utilizes a high protein, low carb, low fat diet. If indicated, we dispense prescription appetite suppressants as part of our program. We have a 150 recipe cookbook that patients receive on their first visit.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Weighing self: I agree with dr. Gupta and would say that you should only weigh yourself on a weekly basis-- same day, same time, same clothes. The main byproduct of the breakdown of fat is water, so when you lose weight, water is released back into the system and that fluid retention can influence the scale, especially for women premenstrually.

Berry tea: A lot of diets say-- drink eight glasses of water a day. Realize one thing-- all liquids are water-based. Tea is nothing more than water with tea in it. It is, however, important that you keep up with your fluid intake, especially if you are on a high protein diet.

Carrying weight: Carrying extra weight puts demand on the whole system. Fat tissue is living tissue, so the heart and lungs have to work harder to supply the extra tissue with oxygen and nutrients, and the muscle and joints experience more stress to move around the extra weight. The liver is a place where fat is stored, and the fat can push on the surrounding liver cells and effect the liver's function.
