Dr Rodriguez ready for weight loss surgery.
Dr. Rod is geared up and ready for surgery…or…ready for outerspace??

We are so excited to resume our scheduling efforts for Dr. Rodriguez Villarreal, Dr. Elmo Aramburo and the entire team of surgeons!! The last several weeks have been hard for us all, so we are thrilled to be coming back with renewed enthusiasm to help our patients.

Our team is EXCITED to be performing weight loss surgeries again after being quarantined for the last month. For the safety and well-being of our staff, our patients and all families involved, we are monitoring CDC recommendations and taking ALL necessary and required precautions when performing surgeries. The hospital has also been compliant and testing their staff on a regular basis.

Currently, there is a limited number of surgeries each day, to help prevent exposure. The doctors will also do a CT-Scan upon arrival, to ensure you do not have COVID-19 prior to having surgery.

As the last several weeks have had a bit of uncertainty in the air, we are confident that we will still provide the same great level of service and continue to do our best to help as many people as we can. We encourage you to spread the word of BeLiteWeight. About 40% of our patients come from direct referrals, and we appreciate every single one of you for sending your friends, family and co-workers to us. Please, continue to help us help them!

Finally Living Again: Heidi 6 Month Post Sleeve


One decision can change your whole life. Once again, BeLiteWeight is very happy to hear another beautiful story from one of our newer patients Heidi. It makes us especially proud to see her with such a big bright smile & writing such kind words in her recent letter. She gave us permission to share it!

Heidi:

At my heaviest I was 225 pounds at only 5’2. I was so physically tired carrying around the weight. I have an office job and kids that were older so my lifestyle really supported my obesity. I could get away with sitting most of the day at work and then when I got home I could do the same. Each day I would sit more and more because it was so exhausting to me to do anything else. So I just stopped trying. …

Obesity History & Future


The modern diet has developed over the past 50 years to now consist of significant quantities of chemicals and poor quality carbohydrates. Two recent studies look at both the past and the upcoming projections at how obesity has and will continue to impact our lives. Americans are not getting smaller, and there are serious consequences on our human genetics because of this global trend.

The New York Times recently released an article that scientists project by the year 2030 fifty percent of American adults will by scientifically obese. While it may seem that health fads and exercise regiments have helped counter the obesity trend, this is true for only particular groups. As a whole the nation is becoming much unhealthier.

One major impact that this diet has had on our human genetics as a whole can be seen in …

Improved Sleep & Weight Loss Benefits


It may be time to try out a new set of sheets and treat your sleep right! Studies have shown that better sleep means more weight loss among a string other health benefits.

A recent article published by Medical Daily which is linked below outlines a few of the ways in which sleep quality and patterns are linked to your bodies processes of weight balance.
