I am 6 days post-op and down a total of 43lbs so far. I would not have ever been able to do this without the guidance of Dr.Baranov. I have tried and failed several times over the years. This is the first diet I was to stick with success before surgery and after. He was upfront with all information and was there to answer any and all questions I have had. I want to thank Dr.Baranov for giving me my life back.
