TESTIMONIALS

 

I have been serious about my weight for seven years. Although I had success in the early years, results had leveled off.  I chose the SmartByte System because my doctor recommended it.  SmartByte has helped me to slow down so I feel full while eating less.  My coach has helped to improve what I eat while I still eat the foods I enjoy.  I’m now confident that I’ll finally be able to manage my weight and achieve my goals.

SmartByte does not work for everyone
and individual results may vary.


As a Medical Assistant, I was immediately excited about the SmartByte System because it was completely different than anything I had seen before. Having struggled with my weight for some time, I was drawn to the program since it’s a non-invasive approach to weight management that includes the accountability of a personal coach. The Personal Coaching Program has been really helpful in keeping me on track and I like that I have one coach assigned to me so I’m not constantly talking to a new person. My coach has taught me a lot about mindful eating and has helped me find ways to incorporate physical activity into my busy schedule. Choosing the SmartByte System was an easy choice because I believe that each component can be successful on its own, however combining them together will make it almost impossible for me to fail.

I have tried many different ways to lose weight from prescription pills to low calorie diets. Despite some initial weight loss, I have always had trouble maintaining my results and felt like I always needed to look for the next solution. I love that SmartByte isn’t surgery or a pill but is a simple device with a mobile app and coaching program. With SmartByte, I am no longer a fast eater. Now I can eat a meal and feel full before I finish. Eating more slowly also allows me to enjoy eating more. The SmartByte coaching program has kept me motivated by focusing on tiny little victories and I love that I don’t have to give up the foods I enjoy.

Weight Management becomes a lifelong goal for every patient who has overweight or obesity. At first, the goal is decreasing weight, but then it is keeping the lost weight off. The SmartByte System provides patients with a non-invasive way to feel fullness sooner. It works by decreasing the oral volume so it takes longer to eat a meal, giving the brain time to register the fullness.  At the end of the day, people using the SmartByte System do not eat as much. Since the SmartByte System really helps patients modify their behavior effectively, it should have a long-lasting effect for most of them.

There are about as many ways to try to lose weight as there are contacts in your phone.  SmartByte is a completely different approach.  While you still have to be conscious about your food selection and nutrition with whatever approach you are using – the device itself is mindless.  Clinical studies have shown that people, who used SmartByte while they ate, lost weight. SmartByte is a system that can help many different types of patients – from those who are new to weight management to those who are frustrated from years of failed dieting and yo-yo results. For patients who want to learn how to lose weight and maintain that loss - behavior is the answer.  If we look at the behavior of patients who have had procedures – they all have to eat differently.  Through the years, my contention with every patient who has ever considered these procedures has been that they have to eat differently -  they have to change their diet,  they have to change their lifestyle, and they have to change their approach to food which is a learned behavior. The SmartByte System can be their answer. 

When considering the numerous medications and procedures that we are using, I do not believe that there is a more safe product than the SmartByte System.

I prescribe the SmartByte System to give my patients a tool that helps them lose weight.  Most patients have struggled for years and are looking for something to help them overcome their barriers to losing weight. The SmartByte System is not medication and it is not surgery.  Many patients are nervous about considering medications because they are worried about the side effects.  Often, patients are also not interested in surgery because it is permanent and comes with a certain level of risk.  The SmartByte System offers patients a tool that fills the gap between simply dieting and more aggressive medical therapy.

In my practice, once a therapy has solid research behind it, I find the next important thing is to have patient enthusiasm for the treatments I prescribe. I can say unequivocally that I have rarely seen patients so excited about a new treatment as they are with SmartByte which I am confident bodes well for compliance and powerful results.
