The truth is out. With all the effort, struggle, hopes, and good intentions that millions of people pour into diet plans each and every day, they don’t work for almost everyone.

The fact is that most people typically lose weight in the short term, normally 5%-10% of their body weight in the first six months, but end up regaining all the weight within four to five years. Many—as many as 2/3 rds —regain more weight than they lost.

Then there’s the expense of the programs, special meals, and your time. Diet programs can be costly besides being ineffective.

Clearly something (or everything) about dieting by itself is not working. And there’s a good chance that you have first-hand experience with that kind of frustration.

Happily, we have some good news. Read on.


Although your weight problem may not yet be extreme, in the future, it might be. Look closely at your personal and family history to get an idea of where your weight, your health, and your lifestyle may be in the future. It may be the perfect time to take action and reclaim your health, your confidence, and your control over your life.

The LAP-BAND® System can be an excellent solution for those who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 30 kg/m with at least one weight-related condition. If you don’t know your BMI, you can calculate it here.

The LAP-BAND® System is a safe, minimally invasive procedure and gradual weight loss solution to help you keep your weight off over time. Most important, for hundreds of thousands of people, it’s a proactive solution to lose weight before the onset of more weight-related health conditions. Nine out of 10 patients are satisfied with their results, with 65% reaching their goal weight in year one, and 70% by the second year.

If you want to take control of your weight, health, and how you live your life, the LAP-BAND® System could be a perfect fit.
