ou want to know one of the best things about summer? Less TV time. I love that our TV is not on as often because there’s just too much life to live outside. And let's face it: reruns. Talk about a waste of time. As summer winds down, it's time to really drink it up— metaphorically. The interesting thing is that I’ve found I am much more optimistic during the summer
some of whom are close colleagues of mine, but the ‘if it bleeds, it leads’ philosophy creates a negative persuasion that I don’t miss at all during the summer. And instead of hanging out with the likes of Donald ‘You’re fired!’ Trump, Simon ‘That was pathetic’ Cowell, and those annoying hosts of Dancing With the Stars, I’ve found so much more time to chat and interact with neighbors, friends and family. And nobody’s been fired or voted off! Instead, I’m able to convert the extra hours of daylight into biking, hiking and a variety of sports and games my kids and their friends make up.

Addiction? It turns out there’s a good reason why you can’t put down that macaroni and cheese, or why those french fries are so addicting. A new study finds that carbohydrates and fats light up the same areas of our brain, the ‘reward centers’, as drugs. Researchers had participants look at photos of various food items and place a price on how much they’d pay for those snacks. They then hooked them up to an MRI scanner to see which parts of their brain were most active. It’s one of the issues that’s creating the world’s obesity epidemic. “Food has become our favorite drug here in America. And it’s just as harmful. The current generation of children will not live as long as their parents, not because of opioids, but because they are eating foods filled with fat, leading to obesity and a whole host of health problems,” says Joseph Galati, M.D., a hepatologist at Texas Liver Specialists.
STRATEGIES FOR GREAT WORKOUTS—NO MATTER YOU’RE TRAINING PARTNER
S ABOUT THE AUTHOR
WORKING OUT WITH A PARTNER IS A GREAT WAY TO MOTIVATE EACH OTHER, TO STAY FOCUSED, AND TO REACH YOUR FITNESS GOALS. MANY TIMES, THE MOST DIFFICULT PART OF EXERCISING WITH A PARTNER OR SIGNIFICANT OTHER IS THE STRENGTH DIFFERENCE AND THE CONDITIONING VARIANCE. MALES AND FEMALES CAN HAVE DIFFERENT WORKOUT GOALS BASED ON THEIR CONDITIONING AND STAMINA. IT IS OFTEN MORE DIFFICULT TO WORKOUT WITH A PARTNER SO YOU MIGHT HAVE TO BE CREATIVE.
Do full-body workouts. It is a lot easier to do plyometricstype workouts together—such as box jumps, squat jumps, and burpees—where only limited equipment is needed. I suggest running through a full-body workout because if one partner gets tired earlier, the other can continue the training. For example, one person would do 30-second sets and the other minute-long sets, which allows you to work out at your own pace.

Do machine training over compound lifting. For example, choose the chest press machine versus a dumbbell bench press. It makes it easier to keep your workouts intense without moving around too much, and without hassle. Machines allow you to quickly switch the weight based off of the strength and conditioning level of the other person. Because of this switch, you won’t spend as much time racking and re-racking weights, and you also won’t stunt the speed and intensity of your workouts.

Use technique-sensitive exercises that would typically make you nervous to do without a spotter. Good examples of this include skull crushers, bench presses, or squats that require a partner to pay attention to your form and to ensure you don’t injure yourself. This gives you an opportunity to push yourself hard or to add on some more weight because you have a safety net with your partner spotting you.
Working out with a partner can make the experience more enjoyable and more motivational as you help each other reach individual fitness goals.

Your Successful Friends Have Given Up SIT DOWN AND THINK, FOR A MOMENT, ABOUT WHAT YOUR SUCCESSFUL FRIENDS DO COMPARED TO YOUR LOSER FRIENDS THAT COMPLAIN. IF YOU DON’ T HAVE ANY SUCCESSFUL FRIENDS, THEN YOU NEED THESE TIPS I’M ABOUT TO SHARE MORE THAN ANYONE. WRITTEN BY TIM DENNING
YOUR SUCCESSFUL FRIENDS THINK DIFFERENTLY, SPEAK DIFFERENTLY, AND WORK 10 TIMES HARDER THAN YOUR LOSER FRIENDS. SUCCESS IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK IT IS, BUT YOU’VE GOT TO MODEL AND LEARN FROM THE RIGHT PEOPLE. YOUR UNSUCCESSFUL LOSER FRIENDS ARE THE ONES THAT ARE FEEDING YOUR MIND LIES.
1. THEY’VE GIVEN UP BELIEVING THEY CAN’T CHANGE THE WORLD
THEY’RE TELLING YOU THAT YOU CAN’T DO IT, OR IT’S TOO HARD, OR THERE’S NO MEANING IN IT ALL ANYWAY. WHAT TOTAL CRAP! LISTEN TO YOUR SUCCESSFUL FRIENDS. DIVORCE YOUR UNSUCCESSFUL FRIENDS ONCE AND FOR ALL. YOU’RE DESTINED FOR BIG THINGS, YOUNG SKYWALKER.
2. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ON LUCK
HERE ARE 16 THINGS YOUR SUCCESSFUL FRIENDS HAVE GIVEN UP:
22 HEALTHY UTAH
Your successful friends believe that it’s not where you are born, how much education you have, or how much money you start out with; success is about believing you can change the world. All of us have the power to do something incredible. We don’t need anyone to tell us we are worthy, or deserve to be phenomenal. Your successful friends let the belief in themselves guide their vision for a better world. Your successful friends believe they can be part of the positive change that helps humanity rise to a higher level.
“Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity” says Oprah Winfrey. Luck is a myth straight out. Your successful friends stopped believing in it a long time ago and have replaced luck with “hustle.” Get out there and make stuff happen. Stop waiting for the right time because it’s never the right time to do anything. You’re in charge of your success, and you’ve got to grab it by the curly ones. The lottery is not going to make you have good luck and be rich; your mind is.
3. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ON NUMBING PAIN Your successful friends are not trying to escape life by numbing the pain; they’re trying to discover the pain and then push through it like a bulldozer. Rather than sit at the pub and drink beer, indulge on carbs/salt and mingle with the other losers, they’re out there having meetings and making the stars align towards their vision. They’re frustrated not at the world, but at how much harder they’ve got to work to make their dream come true. Instead of forgetting their failures by numbing the pain, they’re trying to etch their failures into their brain so they can ensure they learn from them, rather than be pushed into darkness by them.
4. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ON NEGATIVE PEOPLE More than anything, your successful friends have left their loser friends behind. They’re no longer going to sit down and listen to people who have no idea about anything. Your successful friends avoid losers and treat them like they’re infected with malaria.
The only time your successful friends are willing to hang out with a loser is when that person has committed to turning their life around, and they’re asking for help. Your successful friends believe in helping others and sharing their advice.
“A Team” wisely. They see raw talent, and love to polish certain people into beautifully shining diamonds. Your successful friends want to create more leaders rather than be the sole leader.
Don’t let negative people tell you how the world is supposed to be. Find out for your yourself. Grab a piece of the map that guides your life from each of your successful friends. Combine all of their knowledge, and then stop consuming content like this. Then go out and execute on it.
Your successful friends can see through all the imperfections someone might have, and notice the light that is desperately trying to shine through. They love to help people transform, and they believe anyone can be successful.
5. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ON TIME WASTING Procrastinating is something your successful friends are really bad at. They have faith in what they can achieve and just get started on the goal. They treat life like every moment is precious, and they don’t want to waste a second of it. When your successful friends are old and have gray hair one day, they want to be proud of how they spent their time. Ideally, they want to have changed the world in some significant way, and for their legacy to last generations to come. When they enter a room, they want to be given a standing ovation for the way they have lived their life. They are humbled by the gift of wisdom that they first saw, and then embraced with every cell in their body.
6. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ONLY CONSUMING Rather than consume YouTube videos all day long, your successful friends have given up consuming for creating. They spend as much time as possible doing the “doing” instead of sitting there watching others have the success they’ve always dreamt of. As a rule of thumb, spend more than 50% of your time creating and leave the rest of the time for consuming.
7. THEY’VE GIVEN UP SELFISHNESS Your successful friends put their vision, family and goals before everything else. They also are insanely focused on giving and serving others. Put simply: life is not just all about them.
8. THEY’VE GIVEN UP WASTING THEIR MONEY Money is one of the key differences. Successful people pay themselves first and invest a large amount of their income. They also never forget to make giving money a habit, even when they don’t have much money to give. How much you give will determine how rich you become.
9. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ON NOT BELIEVING IN PEOPLE You can’t build Rome if you don’t have people to help with the workload. Your successful friends believe in other people, and pick their
10. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ON NEGATIVE THOUGHTS “World War 3 is not being fought on the battlefield like prior wars; it’s being fought in our own minds.” Your successful friends have oodles of discipline when it comes to their minds. It’s the center of their universe, and they know that all success starts in this one place. They train their mind every single day to avoid the default response of the brain that tells us negative things. Rather than embrace their negative thoughts, your successful friends do everything they can to let these thoughts pass by like clouds in the sky. They’re an observer of their thoughts, and they choose to focus on the rare positive thoughts that come into their consciousness.
11. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ON BS And by ‘BS’ we mean, ‘believing shenanigans.’ Life is full of so much meaningless nonsense. Your successful friends have made a conscious choice to give up on buying into BS. Things that don’t serve them, like the news, are eliminated from their schedule. Meetings for the sake of meetings are frowned upon. People who only serve their own interest and have disgustingly ugly egos are forgotten about, like last year’s bottom-of-the-ladder football team. Being successful is centered around not letting BS get in your way. You’ve got to sort through the dirt to find the golden nugget tasks that make you fulfilled. Your BS tolerance has to be at an all-time low for you to be successful. Don’t put up with your own BS and other people’s BS anymore. Make a change for the better and do what successful people do: make a habit of permanently escaping it for the dream island called “meaning.” Now that’s an island we should all want to live on for the rest of our human existence on this beautiful planet we take for granted.
12. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ON BEING STUCK IN FAILURE “Failure is a cheap lesson in what’s not going to make you successful.” Your successful friends don’t let failure stop them; they use it to become more. Failure allows your successful friends to learn things they didn’t know. Failure equals education rather than a negative experience that stops them in their tracks.
13. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ON BEING SINGLE Now to love: your successful friends have figured out that being single is a myth. Their partner is the one who supports them through all of the challenging times, and reinforces their successful nature. Your successful friends know that they need a good man or woman to come home to. Your successful friends know that love is what makes all of the madness of life worthwhile. Rather than avoiding love or postponing it, they make it their life mission to stop at nothing until they find it while they work away at their vision. Being single is cool for about thirty seconds until you’re an old wrinkly person sitting in your chair and watching all the happy couples dance at the charity ball. You’ll have that sinking feeling that somehow you missed out. Somehow you got so busy with achieving that you forgot what we were put on this planet to do: Love.
14. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ON WEARING A MASK Unlike the corporate politicians, your successful friends have taken the mask away. They’re happy to be vulnerable, and they share even the most personal of stories. Being fake is the ultimate crime to them, and letting who they are shine through is the only way they will live their life.
15. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ON PEOPLE’S OPINIONS OF THEM Your successful friends couldn’t give a rats a$$ what anyone thinks about them. They’re not trying to impress anyone other than themselves. That’s why they’re not afraid to have a go and fail.
16. THEY’VE GIVEN UP ON GIVING UP You’ve come a long way so far. The final thing your successful friends have given up is giving up. They’ve figured out that you can’t work three months on something and then say, “I’m not getting enough traction and quit.” Your successful friends are not quitters. They push through all of the struggle and pain to earn the title of “successful.” It doesn’t come easy and what they do, more than any of the tips I’ve mentioned above, is NEVER GIVE UP! Quitting is not an option, and they let their passion push through all the barriers. They’re insanely obsessed not to lose, and nothing is going to stop them. Could you adopt this mindset and then go on to join your successful friends on cloud nine where they all hang out after a day of winning at life? I believe you can. Do you?

YOU’LL NEED: FOOD PROCESSOR
1. Rice: In a large saucepan, combine rice and water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Immediately reduce heat to low, cover with a tight-fitting lid and simmer for 15 minutes, until all the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, while you prepare the recipe. Use a fork to fluff up the rice when ready to serve.
1 cup jasmine rice, rinsed 1-1/2 cups water
7 garlic cloves, peeled 1 red bell pepper, chopped 2 red Thai chiles, halved and seeded 3 large shallots, roughly chopped 3 tbsp coconut oil 3 tbsp water 1/4 cup tamari (approx.) 1 tsp coconut sugar 2 tbsp mirin (approx.) 3 tbsp vegan Worcestershire 2 lbs veggie ground round Sea salt 1 cup packed fresh Thai basil leaves
3 garlic cloves, minced 3 red Thai chiles, sliced 2 tbsp mirin 1/3 cup tamari 6 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice 5 fresh Thai basil leaves, roughly chopped 1/4 cup sliced cucumber
2. Basil Beef: In a food processor, combine garlic, red pepper, red Thai chiles and shallots; pulse until a coarse paste forms. 3. In a large skillet, heat coconut oil over medium-high heat. Add paste and cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes, until fragrant. 4. In a small bowl, whisk together water, 1/4 cup tamari, coconut sugar, 2 tbsp mirin and vegan Worcestershire. Set aside. 5. Add veggie ground round to skillet and cook, breaking, up with a wooden spoon. Add tamari mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes, until veggie ground round is steaming and heated through. Make sure to check the amount of liquid in the skillet: if it gets too dry, add a little bit of water. You do not want this to be dry. Add more tamari or mirin to taste. 6. Serving Sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together garlic, red Thai chiles, mirin, tamari, lime juice and basil leaves. 7. Once the veggie ground round is heated through, add 1 cup basil leaves. Cover to wilt the basil quickly, about 2 minutes, max. 8. Serve over rice with a side of cucumber slices and a tiny bowl of serving sauce.

VEG What’s With Professional Athletes Going
PROFESSIONAL SOCCER PLAYER AND VEGAN ERIKA TYMRAK EXPLAINS The list of high level athletes going vegan or vegetarian grows every year across almost every sport, including football, basketball, soccer, distance running, bodybuilding, Formula 1, and tennis.
finding that meat doesn’t have to be involved.
For Erika Tymrak, National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) player for the newly created Utah Royals, the vegan diet started out of compassion for animals. But the 26-year-old is now in the best physical shape of her life, and says the benefits of her diet are undeniable.
The 2013 NWSL rookie of the year and two-time NWSL champion says she’d been wanting to make the switch for years, but had held off, always hearing it wasn’t a smart thing to do if you’re like a high level athlete. But while playing in Australia for Melbourne City in 2016, she decided to go for it.
The pros are ditching meat for a variety of “A lot of Australians are vegan, at least in reasons.

As a professional soccer player, Erika has the benefit of exact measurements to see where she’s at physically. So while she knows she feels great, she has the data to back up the effects of her diet change.
AN? “We wear these GPS trackers that track our overall load and endurance and sprints,” she says. “This year year has been my best year with my numbers from an endurance and fitness standpoint. I’ve also been able to keep gains and keep the perfect amount of muscle for myself, which is harder for me because I have a smaller frame. If I don’t, you know, work out for a couple weeks, it’s really easy for me to lose muscle, but I find it really easy for myself to keep the muscle. And just physically I’m in the best shape of my life and I 100 percent contribute that to a vegan diet.” The transformation has made Erika into somewhat of an evangelist. “There’s a few vegan ice cream places here (Salt Lake City area), and have taken some of the girls on the team,” she says. “People are always so surprised, like oh my god it’s so good and it’s vegan?” The stereotype the vegan food tastes bad is just not true, Erika says.

smoothies, and that she eats many small meals throughout the day.
For Erika, changing how she ate meant changing how she cooks. As a long-time lover of baking, she experimented and searched for the right ingredients to make delicious, earth and animal-friendly food.
Feeling better and better fitness are important to athletes and non-athletes alike, but there is also the planet to think about. Eating plant-based is good for animals obviously (as they aren’t being eaten), and helps combat livestock practices that contribute heavily to greenhouse gas emissions. Professional athletes are in a unique position to change perceptions about diet, Erika realizes, which can have a huge impact on the world at large.
“With baking, switching to vegan wasn’t that different,” she says, “I would use, instead of dairy milk, non-dairy milk, almond milk or cashew milk, and then I found a really good egg substitute. I’ll always bake stuff and like my teammates will be like ‘there is no way this is vegan.’” Another myth, Erika says, is that vegan diets are highly restrictive. Her go-to meals are varied and sound delicious: sweet potatoes with almond butter and granola, homemade pizza, avocado toast, veggie pad thai, black bean burgers, buckwheat pancakes, acai bowls, and the list goes on. She says she eats a lot of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and

“I think athletes have a great platform to show people that you can not only survive on a vegan diet, but you can thrive,” she says. “There are so many professional athletes around the world who choose not to eat animal products and are surpassing physical expectations. We are destroying the negative stigma attached with veganism and are showing the world that you can be fast, strong and healthy on a plant based diet.”

I boil potatoes and carrots until soft and then add them to a blender along with turmeric, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, almond milk and nutritional yeast. I will blend that until smooth and that creates a nice “cheesy” sauce. 3. I’ll add that to warm pot and stir for a few minutes then add in the noodles! Just a healthier, more compassionate version of your typical mac and cheese!
PALEO DIETGrade: BBy this time of the year, many people have given up on their well-intentioned new year’s resolutions to eat a healthier diet. Perhaps one reason for this failure is that people aren’t quite sure what a healthy diet actually is. If you do a Google search of “healthy diet,” millions of hits instantly appear. A quick skim of the results shows a lot of different options—low sodium, the Mediterranean diet, low fat, gluten free, Paleo diet—and the list goes on and on. How is anybody supposed to sort through all of the information and figure out what diet is best? Let’s take a closer look at some popular current diets.
WEIGHT WATCHERSGrade: D
The premise of the Weight Watchers program is that certain foods and their quantities are deemed to have a certain number of points, with program participants being allotted so many points in a day. Sure, this can teach first time participants what a proper portion of food looks like, but assigning points to foods can lead to obsessive caloriecounting and a subsequent unhealthy relationship with food. From a health behavior standpoint, this diet promotes habits that can lead to a poor relationship with food and body. The program promotes itself as the “#1 Best Diet for Fast Weight Loss.” To be sustainable, weight loss should be slow. Any diet that promotes itself as a tool for quick weight loss is a red flag. Furthermore, restricting how much food you eat, basically starving yourself, often leads to future binge eating.
FLEXITARIAN DIETGrade: A-
The Flexitarian Diet is a mostly vegetarian diet but meat is definitely okay. This diet promotes eating lots of plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and beans. You don’t have to give up any foods though—the diet suggests that you start by having 2 of the 7 days of the week be “meatless.” This diet gets a great grade from us because it promotes eating super healthy plant-based foods but doesn’t outlaw any foods. It promotes a healthy balance and is a realistic long-term diet. It also doesn’t try to restrict portion sizes, and the goal of this diet is health, not weight-loss.
GLUTEN-FREE DIETGrade: C+
For those with gluten allergies, following a strict gluten-free diet is very important for health. However, among the population at large, there seems to be a big misunderstanding about what gluten is. It’s just a grain protein and is not bad for you unless you have an allergy. Those who follow a gluten-free diet of their own volition may feel better just because by avoiding foods with gluten, they’re avoiding most junk food— pizza, chips, cookies, candy, etc. They may also see health benefits because they might eat more fruits and vegetables, since these are food groups that are gluten free. However, most dieticians would advise against completely cutting out healthy food groups (such as whole grains!) if you don’t have an actual allergy. If you buy specialty gluten-free items such as gluten-free bread, a gluten-free diet may be more expensive than a regular diet too.
The Paleo diet wants you to eat like humans supposedly did thousands of years ago. This diet includes eating fruits, vegetables, nuts, and meat, and completely outlaws grains, dairy, and beans and peanuts. The Paleo diet is simply not sustainable long-term for most people. Most dieticians advise against completely cutting out otherwise healthy foods such as whole grains, dairy, and even beans and peanuts. Whole grains, dairy, and beans and peanuts are all great for a healthy diet. By outlawing foods and making them “bad,” this diet can promote disordered eating habits and an unhealthy obsession with food and body. However, those who follow this diet do consume lots of fruits and vegetables, which is great for your health.
KETO DIETGrade: C
The Keto diet is built to put your body in a state where it’s burning dietary and stored body fat for energy, rather than sugar, which is the more typical source of fuel. This means you’re eating lots of fats and a moderate amount of proteins, and very little carbs. Entering ketosis (the state where your body is breaking down fats instead of sugars) is not unhealthy, and can lead to more weight loss than other diets. We also like that the diet focuses on finding and avoiding hidden sources of sugar, and eating healthy fats. But, the keto diet asks a lot of its followers, especially with how few carbs most plans allow, meaning it might not be a viable long-term solution for dietary lifestyle. Also, some may experience fatigue, difficulty thinking clearly, bad breath and blood sugar drops for the first few weeks while the body is getting used to ketosis. Some medical professionals warn that urine pH can become more acidic, increasing the risk of kidney stones. Lastly, whenever you cut out a macronutrient, you may be missing out on micronutrients, so a multivitamin/ supplement may become necessary.
Out of these five popular diets, we most recommend the Flexitarian Diet. It promotes a healthy diet without severely restricting portion sizes and without completely eliminating any foods. It promotes health rather than weight loss.

WHAT IS IT?
Dupuytren’s (doo-puh-trens) Contracture is a condition involving the palm and fingers. Connective tissue (aplmar fascia) just under the skin in the palm begins to thicken and shorten, which causes development of contracted cords and nodules. The fingers then curl down toward the palm. The ring and little finger are most commonly affected.
Now there is a simple, quick non-surgical medical treatment available in the Salt Lake market by Doctor David Kline. This technique was developed in Paris by Doctor J. L. Lermusiaux in the early 1950’s. Dr. Kline had his own hand treated by Dr. Lermusiaux, then studied the procedure and brought the technique to the U.S. in 2002.
Under local anesthetic, Dr. Kline uses a small hypodermic needle to divide and release the contracting bands in the diseased areas of the palm and fingers. THE EFFECTIVENESS IS OUTSTANDING! Patients are able to open their hands immediately.

Wisdom teeth removal and orthodontics are easiest in the summer months.
TEETH TIPS FOR
ith the end of the school year right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to start making those exciting summer plans. In addition to family vacations, summer break is a great opportunity to bring your kids in to your family dental office to take care of their bigger treatment needs. Two common dental needs for most children, orthodontics and wisdom teeth removal, are both great to knock out during these summer months. Often it can be difficult to schedule your children’s dental and orthodontic appointments around their busy school and activity schedules. But during the summertime, many parents use their kids’ break from classes to take care of their bigger dental concerns. Wisdom teeth removal is a necessity for many children between the ages of 13 – 21. When wisdom teeth emerge misaligned or impacted, you may experience physical discomfort and teeth alignment issues. Removing wisdom teeth is a quick procedure, often 45 minutes or less, that is typically done under IV sedation. Due to the sedation, it’s recommended to plan time off of school or work for the next 24-48 hours. By taking care of this procedure in the summer, you ensure that your child will not have to miss any school or extracurricular activities. Braces are also great to start while school is out. Braces, another common need for children ages 13 – 21, are used to correct a variety of dental issues including teeth crowding, overbite, and crossbite. A quick consultation can determine if you are a candidate for braces, and will help you
to determine the type of orthodontics necessary for correction. Starting braces in the summer allows for greater flexibility when scheduling the initial consultation and installation appointment. It also gives your child an opportunity to acclimate to the look and feel of braces outside of the hectic social atmosphere of the classroom. So while considering your summer break plans, make sure to prioritize your children’s upcoming dental needs. Bigger procedures like wisdom teeth removal and orthodontics can have a huge impact on oral hygiene and the overall appearance of a smile. Taking care of these concerns during the summer months not only makes it easier to schedule appointments that work with your busy lifestyle, it also guarantees that your children won’t miss any school.

It helps you feel satisfied on smaller portions of food, and subsequently lose those extra pounds. The outpatient procedure is only about an hour, meaning you can go home that same day. Most people can return to work in about a week.
• It is the safest weight loss surgery available • It is usually an outpatient procedure (After the operation people go home the same day)
• It is adjustable- the tightness is customized to each patients needs during office visits. • It is reversible - The band can be removed. • Malnutrition of vitamins or proteins is rare. • Regular short office visits provide the best weight loss results.
