Lifestyle Coaching Not Medical Advice
The Program is designed for people who are having or who have had bariatric surgery to assist them to create a new healthy lifestyle after their surgery. It is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment that can be provided by your surgeon, physician, therapist, dietitian, or any other health care professional. The staff of The Fresh Start Program are not medical health practitioners or mental health providers and are not holding themselves out to be in any capacity. The Fresh Start Program is not providing a health care, medical, psychological counselling or dietetic service or attempting to diagnose, treat or cure in any manner whatsoever any disease, condition, or other physical or mental ailment of the human body. Rather the staff of The Fresh Start Program serve as coaches, mentors and guides who aim to help you to reach your own health and weight management goals through implementing incremental, positive, healthy, sustainable lifestyle changes.
The intent of the Program is NOT to replace any relationship that exists, or should exist, between you and your surgeon or any other health care professional regarding any questions or concerns that you have about your surgery, specific health situation, dietary restrictions, or any medications you are currently taking. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU CONSULT WITH YOUR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL BEFORE STARTING THE PROGRAM TO ENSURE THAT YOU ARE MINDFUL OF YOUR CURRENT HEALTH AND ANY RESTRICTIONS THAT ARE RELEVANT TO YOU.
