Exercise Training / Healthy Living

Making a commitment to manage your weight for the rest of your life is an important part of your success. Exercise is a critical component in weight management.  Exercise  keeps your muscle proteins intact and stimulates your body to use fat stores as energy. Below are helpful links to provide you with resources to help you choose a program that works for you. Dr. Owens encourages patients to begin exercise as quickly as possible after surgery.
