New Delhi, 6th February 2016: People often confuse bariatric surgery with liposuction and when they hear that diet will be less, they think that dieting alone will work but bariatric surgery offers you fast and more sustained Weight loss due to hormonal changes associated with it. Not only after bariatric surgery people who are binge eaters, stop eating excess food but due to hormonal changes, the diseases associated with obesity like Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension, Obstructive sleep apnea, PCOD (infertility), and others show marked improvement, that some of the patients may not need even medicines for their diseases, so bariatric surgery adds healthy years to your life.
We have organized this support group meeting so as the people could come & share their journey of being "Fat to Fit".

There was a breaking point come when I couldn’t sleep even for an hour said a patient who was present there at the camp. “Bad eating habits, lack of exercise weight gain after child birth made my life very uncomfortable”.
