Is what I post on this site private or confidential?
This is a members-only site, BUT since this is NOT medical care, there is no confidentiality. Anything that you post is at your own risk, and you should assume that it is accessible to ANYONE. If you want it private or confidential-don't post it. You'll also have the ability to post with a "display name". We STRONGLY encourage all to utilize that option. Visit the My Account section of your Member area to make this change.
Do you file medical claims or participate with insurance?
This is not medical care. There are no lab tests, medications, prescribed diets, or treatment of medical or surgical issues through this site. You must be enrolled in a Bariatric surgical or medical practice for those, and I require that all members have a provider that they see regularly. Research shows us that patients who regularly follow up with their Bariatric surgeon are more successful than those who don't. Consider regular Bariatric care as your first step to success.

Why is the lotus flower our symbol? Especially with the concept of "Boot Camp"? Incongruity, right?
We chose the name "Bari Boot Camp" with the slogan of "Back to Basics" because it connotes getting our behavior back to what our programs told us would work. We were attracted to the symbol for its clean, simple lines.
Bari Boot Camp offers a fresh start, feeling renewed and energized and focused on your Bariatric Journey. Similarly, the lotus flower has meanings in various cultures as a symbol of rebirth and strength. We see this Bariatric journey in the same way.
