About Bariatric Pal
BariatricPal.com is a site dedicated completely to the weight loss surgery community. Our goal is to be the premier online weight loss surgery resource. We know that you need support and information starting from long before your surgery, and continuing for years after your surgery. Your surgeon, dietitian, family and in–person friends can't be available for you 24/7, but BariatricPal.com is.
We want to provide all the support that we can so that
you can write your own weight loss success story.
Because of our commitment to you, membership is free and includes access to all features.
