Your first detox is like picking up a new sport. At first it is intriguing, you are super motivated and excited about the potential results. Then it begins… the pain and concentration that you need to have to strictly eat what you are supposed to eat/drink and NOTHING else. You have a moment of doubt and maybe even laziness, usually around the liquid days, where you wonder if you are going to be able to reach your goal and whether all this is worth it. You eventually pull through and once you are finally done, you realise how much better you feel, how much better you look and how excited you are about feeling in control of your body’s health. Angelique kept saying she regularly does a detox and I always thought it was because she was way more devoted than everyone else, but I get it now. I am actually looking forward to my next one!
Phase 3: Relax: at this point you will receive a more extended food list allowing you to broaden your meal choices. This is the time when a weekly 'treat' meal is added in. Adding exercise at this point is extremely beneficial. This is when most people really start to see a difference in how they look and feel. Hunger and craving diminish and you will notice how a small amount of food will leave you feeling satisfied. Energy levels rise, skin looks glowing and all round wellbeing improves.
Phase 2: Get in the zone: lasts for 14 days and is the strictest part of the programme. Some people can get detox and withdrawal symptoms (headaches, cravings, etc). I have other people who can feel hungry while they go through this adjustment phase. It is best to avoid exercise during this phase. At the end of this phase energy is increased and the weight loss results are usually very motivating.

Lastly, you enter the Wellness Phase when you have met your goal weight. Monthly visits help to keep you on track with your long-term weight maintenance plan, and additional testing and supplements may be suggested. During this phase, the dieter moves to a 40/30/30 eating plan where 40 percent of calories consumed come from carbohydrates, 30 percent come from fats and 30 percent come from protein.
Our free monthly support groups provide opportunities before and after surgery to learn and ask questions of our dietitian, psychologist and bariatric nurse, as well as patients who share their personal stories about the challenges and successes of weight loss surgery. Support groups are open to anyone who has had or is planning to have weight loss surgery.
Combining multiple procedures allows for one anesthesia and one recovery period. Each body is different, and Dr. Nimtz will tailor his approach to your needs, concentrating on your specific trouble spots, while keeping you safe throughout the procedure and your recovery. Commonly combined procedures include the lower and upper body lifts. The lower body lift tightens the abdomen, back, buttocks, hips, and thighs. An upper body lift may consist of an arm lift, breast lift, and possibly breast augmentation. For men, a male breast reduction procedure may also be included.
Phase 4: Maintenance: most people start this phase at week 12, though it does depend on how much weight you have to lose. During this phase I work with you to make the programme become a long term way of life. I show you how you can gradually expand your food list and explain which foods you should you should keep in moderation. You will end up in a place where you will instinctively know how to stay in balance.

Most nonsurgical weight loss programs are based on a combination of diet, behavior modification and regular exercise. Unfortunately, even the most effective interventions don't work for everyone. It's estimated that less than 5 percent of individuals who participate in nonsurgical weight loss programs will lose a significant amount of weight and maintain that loss for an extended period of time.
