Slim. Fit. Happy.

At Anchorage Bariatrics, we know that drastic diets and depriving yourself of all your favorite foods is a recipe for failure. With this in mind, our program incorporates New Directions engineered meal supplements that are ketogenic, or fat burning, with traditional grocery foods. This diet, when combined with increased exercise and activity, can help you lose two to four pounds per week.

Whether you want to lose weight before a surgery, instead of surgery, after surgery, or you just want to take control of your weight, this is a great option!

During the plan, you will be required to attend a weekly nutrition class. We have several options available throughout the week for your convenience. Our Registered Dietitian, Erika VanCalcar, will lead the class and cover various topics including nutrition, behavior modification, and physical activity. You will also plan out your next week’s food.

Our next support group will a special Pot Luck and Clothing Swap held on Wednesday, September 6. Support groups are FREE and open to everyone, so please join us! Guests should make their favorite bariatric dish to share and bring copies of the recipe to the meeting along with clothes that are too big to swap with people in varying stages of weight loss. We need your participation to make this one a success, so please register and bring your food and clothes! The meeting will be from 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM in the Willow Room (adjacent to the cafeteria) at Providence Hospital. Click here to register!
