The Owl Diet – An Alternative to Lap Band in Omaha

With The OWL Diet™ you will lose weight without the food restrictions, vitamin deficiencies and hair loss associated with Lap-Band bariatric surgery.

Michael G. Perri, PhD wrote this about bariatric surgery in a Women’s Health publication: “Patients considering this option must be aware of the major lifestyle changes required by such surgery, such as the need to limit meal sizes to 2 to 3 ounces to avoid regurgitation. Patients also need to know the mortality rates associated with the different surgical procedures (e.g., 0.5% for gastric bypass surgery), and reproductive-aged women contemplating bariatric surgery should be aware that the safety of pregnancy following surgery is uncertain.”

Dr. Abbott has seen over a dozen patients who had LapBands and did not tolerate the effects after surgery. Some patients had slippage of the band, leading to removal.  Others found they could not tolerate the side effect of nausea, bloating, acid reflux and even vomiting – all side effects of the LapBand in some people.

Any surgery in an obese patients carries risks, including death during anesthesia or suffering a heart attack during surgery.

I have been on EVERY diet known to man. I have even had the Lap Band surgery to help with my over-eating, but I was still having a problem with my addiction to SUGAR! Until I happened to go to Omaha Med Spa and there was the answer to my prayers – The OWL Diet.

The OWL Diet (Omaha Weight Loss) differs from Lap-Band™ Surgery in these five ways:

  • You can lose all of your weight without the risks of surgery
  • The OWL Diet teaches you how to eat as a way to lose weight and keep it off. Lap-Band surgery forces you to eat a certain way
  • The OWL Diet allows you to choose from a large variety of food and beverages.  Lap Band may prevent you from eating some healthy foods, such as salads and fresh vegetables
  • The OWL Diet is cost effective, and a cheaper way to lose weight compared to surgery
  • After you lose weight on The OWL Diet you will look and feel healthier.  Lap Band surgery can lead to hair loss and changes in skin color and tone that make some people look very unhealthy.
 
Before considering Lap Band surgery, give OWL 4-12 weeks to lose anywhere from 15 to 60 pounds!  Many of our patients are able to stop taking their blood pressure and diabetes pills once they achieve a healthier weight.

I have always had a problem with my weight since I was a little kid. I have been on EVERY diet known to man. I have even had the Lap Band surgery to help with my over-eating, but I was still having a problem with my addiction to SUGAR! Until I happened to go to Omaha Med Spa and there was the answer to my prayers – The OWL Diet. I have previously read information about this diet on the internet not realizing that this was the place that the diet had originated from!!! I am pretty sure God brought me to this place for a reason. With pure excitement and desperation I made an appointment to see Dr. Abbott about the diet. Being a nurse, I had plenty of questions for him! I knew that his was the diet for me. This lifestyle change teaches you how to eat real food! No shakes or bars! I lost 47 pounds in about 2 months. Plus being followed by a doctor and his staff that I trusted – SOLD! H.B woman age 37 I did 2 months on The OWL Diet, lost 30 pounds to reach my goal and I feel wonderful. Through what I learned I have kept it off and know I will be able to continue to do so.– M.H. woman age 36 I started with Dr. Abbott and Omaha Med Spa for weight loss and couldn’t believe how easy it was to lose the extra 20 pounds in just 5 weeks. J.W. woman age 64 This program is nothing short of miraculous. It is the only weight loss method that has worked for me. I gained 25 pounds while dating my future husband, another 25 pounds while pregnant with our child, and another 25 pounds as a new mother. I had dieted for the next 22 years without success. Then I found Dr. Abbott’s program. I have lost 65 pounds to date and plan to shed the final 10 pounds this month. Thank you! A.S. woman age 53
