Understanding the Effect of Nutrition on Weight Loss.

At Ellis Medicine’s Bariatric Care Center, our dedicated registered dietitians play a crucial role in supporting individuals on their weight management journey, whether they are considering other bariatric interventions or not. The collaboration begins with the development of a personalized diet and exercise program tailored to address each patient’s unique health goals.

Understanding that everyone’s needs differ, our dietitians provide individualized guidance while adhering to some fundamental principles. Emphasizing healthy eating habits, they encourage a varied and balanced diet that incorporates a diverse range of nutrient-rich foods. Prioritizing protein intake is a key component, supporting muscle maintenance and promoting a sense of fullness, essential for effective weight management.

While everyone is different, there are some general guidelines that are suggested.
