Most weight loss programs want to convince you that being overweight is the only problem and that losing weight will eliminate all your related health risks.
You may be wondering why it makes a difference to think about metabolism, and not obesity as the central risk factor for developing the serious health problems in the diagram above.
A group of these health issues, when they occur together, dramatically increase your risk for heart disease and stroke. As a group they are referred to as “Metabolic Syndrome.”
Targeting excess weight alone misses the point, brings out bias, and limits success. Rather than focusing on weight, when you focus instead on metabolic fitness, you open the door for wider-reaching benefits grounded in science.
To achieve your highest levels of health, fitness, and energy, it comes down to addressing your metabolism.
There are many ways to do bariatric surgery. Unfortunately, even when weight loss surgery is done wrong, patients will often lose weight at first, then plateau earlier, and have a higher chance for weight regain. Dr. Quebbemann is widely respected as one of the best technical surgeons in America. He has pioneered surgical advancements including his Scar-Less Sleeve technique, the S.L.I.M.M.S.™ Procedure and others.
Dr. Quebbemann doesn’t do metabolic weight loss operations as one of many other types of surgeries he performs. He specializes exclusively in metabolic surgery and he understands how the surgery works. Metabolic surgery is his focus and first priority. He has written several books to help people understand weight gain, and to help his clients maximize permanent weight loss, both with and without surgery. Surgery doesn’t work if patients aren’t taught how to use it, and his in-depth knowledge has been published and is available through our clinic and on Amazon, providing simple, realistic insight on how to succeed. See his books World’s Greatest Weight Loss, DietaryRebuild™, and Permanent Surgical Weight Loss.
In over 25 years of experience, Dr. Quebbemann has seen a lot. He’s seen good operations mismanaged by clinics that didn’t understand weight loss. He’s seen devices and procedures sold to patients when the chance of success was minimal. And he knows that when surgical patients have regained weight, they need a true specialist to get them back on track. Dr. Quebbemann limits the procedures he offers to only those with the highest rates of success and lowest long-term complications. He also focuses on helping patients who have regained weight recover their success through in-depth evaluation of anatomy and tailoring surgery to fix the problem.
The N.E.W. Program has never been just a “chop shop” focused only on doing more surgeries. We offer a non-surgical approach to weight loss – in his book “High Impact Weight Loss™” (in print), he describes his program for rapid and sustained non-surgical weight loss. This program is very aggressive, with a rapid, keto-based weight loss phase followed by his DietaryRebuild™ transition protocol to make your weight loss permanent.
