The Bariatric Academy ™ LIFELONG SUCCESS Group is for patients who are more than 1-year Post-Op

We have a mix of outstanding professionals and patients who share inspiring life stories.   For example, on 12/30/2020, we were honored to present Dr. Paul Davidson, psychologist at Brigham and Womens’ Hospital and Harvard, talking about Self Esteem and Confidence going into the new year.  It is a classic that we believe every bariatric patient should see!   Here is the link.

The right Supplements for your needs

Use Unjury Protein along with healthy eating and regular exercise for vitality and healthy aging.

Healthy Aging

To maintain vitality as we age, we need more high-quality protein. Medical research says that over the age of 40, we need 30 grams of high-quality protein, three times a day. You get more of the highest quality protein with UNJURY®. You also get far lower carb, fat, sugar and calories than in the heavily advertised flagship nutrition drinks you see on TV.
