Find Balance in Your New Life with BARIVANA
Success after bariatric surgery can be taught, this is where you learn what to do!
If you’ve had bariatric surgery then you know first-hand that the surgery itself is not the cure or the end solution. But it’s the beginning of your exciting journey to better health and a new you.
But what most patients don’t realize is that 6 months to 1 year after surgery things change. When you were getting ready for surgery you had an entire team to support you and help you get ready. As time passes that team dwindles.
Pre-surgery the surgeon explained the surgeries to you, the dietitian explained good nutrition habits to you and the exercise physiologist showed you how to exercise and which exercises you should do.
The plan was to start doing everything they taught you after you had surgery, but it was a ton of information you were expected to remember and it was so long ago it’s nearly impossible to recall.
So 1 year after surgery bariatric patients are surprised to find that their team and their support have dwindled and they are left to figure it out on their own.
BARIVANA is an online support and training resource to help post-op bariatric patients to thrive in their new life post-surgery.
The amount of information you learned prior to surgery was enormous. It’s not reasonable to expect that you retained it all. That’s where we come in.
Over the years we’ve come to realize that there is a lot more to success after bariatric surgery than vitamins and supplements — things like:
MINDSET: The mental side of things and how to stay focused on lifestyle change
MANAGEMENT: Overcoming mental hunger so you can stay on track
MOTIVATION: Finding the motivation and time to exercise while balancing your life
