Hi, I’m Michelle Phelan, nutritionist at
Blossom Bariatrics, and today we are going to answer some frequently asked questions
from our patients. Kenny from Palm Spring, California, asks,
“My partner and I both had bariatric surgery in 2013 by the same surgeon. Jose lost more
weight than I did and I am exercising more and eating healthier. Why is that?”
Well Kenny, sometimes when you get on that scale, you can be weighing much more due to
increased muscle mass. Usually that is the culprit.
Some other things to take into consideration is you may be retaining some water. So, usually
when you are working out hard and eating healthy, you should still be losing inches. How do
your clothes fit? How do you feel? That is the important part.
I hope you found this information useful. If you have any additional questions, please
