The Fresh Start Program

Over 2 Years of Lifestyle and Mindset Support

After weight loss surgery, many people find that some of the lifestyle habits that led them to surgery in the first place are still a challenge. For this reason it is important to ensure that you have the support, motivation and tools you will need to stay on track to achieving your goals.

Designed and run by an experienced, professional coaching team, The Fresh Start Program is included in your surgical package to help guide and motivate you to achieve the weight, lifestyle and health results you desire after your surgery.


Receive over 2 years of support including:

  • Regular face-to-face group support sessions;
  • Access to a private 1:1 phone support session and optional follow-up sessions;
  • Regular support and group coaching calls;
  • 6 months of online lifestyle and mindset resources;
  • Phone and email support; and

Qualified support to help you make sustainable lifestyle changes

According to a 2018 survey, 100% of patients participating in The Fresh Start Program workshops indicated that they would ‘recommend the support sessions to another bariatric patient’.
