• May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month! Are you ready to celebrate?

It’s a classic “the chicken or the egg” question; do we exercise less because we’re overweight or are we overweight because we exercise less? This May, in honor of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, Dr. Gaston is here to help answer that question. 

Besides weight loss, there are many other benefits of physical activity. 

Exercise alone cannot accomplish the weight loss many of us desire. Studies show exercise without dieting is a losing battle, but that dieting without increasing exercise won’t keep the weight off long term. 

Dr. Gaston is the only gastroenterologist in Chicagoland that offers the Orbera procedure, to help you jumpstart your weight loss so physical activity becomes more possible! This non-surgical procedure places a durable balloon in your stomach, making it easy to control your portion sizes and relearn how much to eat. You will discover the joys of physical fitness and become able to climb stairs without fatigue, walk longer distances, engage in more play with children, and accomplish athletic goals you previously thought impossible. With the temporary Orbera procedure, nutritional information and increased physical activity, Dr. Gaston’s patients have lost up to 14 lbs in just one week.  

Through May, in honor of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, Dr. Gaston is offering a substantial $500 discount on the Orbera procedure. FREE consultations are available. Dr. Gaston will assess your BMI (body mass index) and your overall general health to determine if you are a candidate for the Orbera procedure. 

With Orbera, your “chicken and egg” question turns around completely - is the weight loss making you more willing to exercise or is the exercising encouraging you lose the weight?

Call Metropolitan Gastroenterology Consultants and Dr. Darrien Gaston. You can also book online for your FREE consultation, 24/7.
