Dr Jenny Seger, MD, Diplomate ABFM, ABOM is a board certified family medicine physician at the Bariatric Medical Institute of Texas (www.bmioftexas.com). In her early career, she struggled to help patients affected by obesity. Handing out information on calorie restricted diets and advising them to exercise more simply did not suffice. She began to research scientific developments. When Dr Mickey Seger and Dr Terive Duperier opened the Bariatric Medical Institute of Texas, she saw a perfect opportunity to focus on medical weight loss by developing a healthy lifestyle program. The Institute provides compassionate care and a comprehensive approach to prevention and treatment of overweight and obesity. Treatment emphasises nutrition and other lifestyle modifications. The nutritional aspect of the program is based on a low carbohydrate/optimal protein/heallthy fat approach.
