When it comes to opinions on how to lose weight, there are far too many. Lemon juice to vibrators, fad diet to magic potions, wonder drugs to sure shot machines, liposuction to bariatric surgery, the list is endless!
It becomes difficult, even impossible for many to differentiate between a fact and a fake!
In this world of increasing data, wouldn’t it be simpler if there was a body of experts who examined the claims through a scientific eye and told us what to believe.
Welcome to “Way to High”!
If you read this as -weigh too high? – Well, that was intentional. We hope to help those who do!
Who are we?
We are a group of people comprising of nutritionists, lifestyle coach, physical trainer and bariatric surgeon who are committed to scientific analysis of diverse claims and beliefs on methods of weight loss.

You can consult with us online here and if you like what you hear, you can enroll into one of the programs that we have. If you are an eligible candidate for surgery (plastic surgery or bariatric surgery) we could deliver world-class surgical expertise right here.
Who needs Bariatric Surgery?
- Do you have a waist more than 100 cm (men) or 90 cm (women)?
- Do you weigh more than ‘normal’people and are told you are fat?
- Do you have a tummy and also have diabetes, hypertension or a cholesterol problem?
- Do you weigh 100 kg or more and have arthritis or low back pain?
- Are you fat and need a CPAP machine during sleep (or are you a snorer)?
YOU probably need bariatric surgery. Anyone with a BMI of 30 or more may be a candidate.
Ask your doctor your BMI, or find it at the BMI site (www.bmi-india.com).
Why should I need bariatric surgery?
Obesity and diabetes are killers of modern mankind. Not only do they make your quality of life poor, they also tend to kill you. If you wish to escape the possibility of new cancers, joint pain and arthritis leading to surgeries, lung, heart and kidney problems, then think no more.
Ask your doctor any question you want, and get ready for a disease-free life after your bariatric surgery.
How is bariatric surgery done?
It is a keyhole surgery like what we do for gallbladder or uterus removal. No stitches, no pain, no big cuts, no stay in hospital beyond a day or so, and almost immediate return to normal life.
The stomach is re-engineered to take a different shape. It may be shaped like a banana, a hockey stick or like a small bottle of syrup. In many cases (known as the MGB), the hockey stick shaped stomach is connected to a part of your small gut.
In the sleeve operation, the baggy part of the stomach is removed, leaving behind a tube of stomach.
Which procedure is the best one for me?
The mini-gastric bypass is the one that patients like best. It allows for fastest return homeward and to the workplace, as well as needing minimal adjustments in the short term to normal life.
The conventional gastric bypass is the gold standard operation with the largest amount of scientific data supporting its positive effects. It has powerful effect on diabetes and other metabolic problems, like the mini gastric bypass. It does have its small share of complications.
The sleeve is the most popular operation in much of the world. Its ease makes its use attractive, especially in younger and sicker patients. However, it has a leak rate of 2%, and these leaks may take a long while to heal.
Recent studies from Taiwan and Europe suggest that the mini gastric bypass has better results than both the sleeve and the gastric bypass.
However, the last word has not been said in this regard.

Sometimes, patients who do not want to undergo the knife (we understand that), you could avail our facility for a endoscopic balloon or laser liposuction. For those committing to a non-surgical weight loss program, you could try us for 3 months or connect with us for life committed to health.
