Our Seminars are Back In-Person: Join Our Weight Loss Surgery Information Seminars at The George Centre!

Written by Ali Zarrouk on .

We are thrilled to announce the return of our popular Free Weight Loss Information Seminars in an in-person format at our new location, The George Centre. Since 2012, these seminars have been a cornerstone of our service, providing valuable insights and support to those considering weight loss surgery. 

Our seminars began a decade ago, with the goal of educating and empowering individuals on their weight loss journey. The seminars quickly became a sought-after resource, offering expert advice, indepth discussion, and a platform for questions and answers. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we moved to online webinars via Zoom but now we are thrilled to reconnect face-to-face, offering a more personal and interactive experience.

These seminars are more than just informational sessions; they are a starting point for your transformative journey. Whether you are just beginning to consider weight loss surgery or seeking deeper insights, we welcome you to join us at The George Centre.

A New Free Healthy Eating Class To Stay On Track After Weight Loss surgery

Written by Ali Zarrouk on .

Long Term Eating For Optimal HealthHealthy eating and lifestyle modification are vital to achieve good weight loss after gastric sleeve or bypass. We are creatures of habits and after the excitement of seeing the weight drop after surgery, we often revert back to our old ways of eating. In addition, some patients develop poor eating patterns that can sabotage their success in losing weight or result in weight regain.

To help you get back on track and to avoid common eating mistakes after weight loss surgery our expert bariatric dietitian, Angela runs new classes for patients who are 6 months and beyond after surgery. We highly recommend attending these classes.
