In a nutshell, the inability to maintain weight loss after dieting is scientifically proven to not be your fault.
When you're overweight, your metabolic set point rises with your weight - setting a new fixed point each time.
When dieting, you lose weight below your body's new set point but it doesn't reset it.

Weight loss surgery resets your metabolic set point helping you achieve lasting weight loss success.
