Is the Pose Procedure for You?

The Tools for Success

THERE'S AN UNFORTUNATE TRUTH ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS

Even people who successfully lose weight on their own are likely to gain it back after six months.2

Research shows that hunger is a key component that can make losing weight on a calorie restricted diet a struggle. This is also why most diets don't work long term. Even as weight comes off, your body continues to send signals to your brain triggering hunger. As hunger sets in, weight loss stalls or becomes even harder to maintain. Once people "go off" the diet, the weight goes back on.

The Pose procedure is a weight-loss tool that helps you control your hunger and supports your success in these ways:

It targets the portion of stomach that expands when you eat. You naturally eat smaller portions and become full sooner.

It positively affects hunger signals, so you reduce nagging hunger pangs between meals.

It slows the stomach from emptying, so you feel fuller longer.

These benefits, along with one year of nutrition and exercise support with the Pose Partnership® program, can help you easily learn to eat less and develop healthy eating habits that last.
