A successful bariatric treatment can be possible by determining realistic goals and making permanent lifestyle changes. The basic logic is to intake less calorie while being physically more active and burning more calorie. For doing this, first the daily calorie intake and the amount of daily physical activity should be measured. A rationalistic plan is required to control stimulus that trigger eating, stop making eating a reward, and avoid weight regain.

Like in all other chronic medical problems, effective and successful treatment of obesity can be achieved with a motivated patient as well as harmonious working of the relevant health care professionals with patience. Such a team includes doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, exercise therapists, dietitians and other specialists needed. Scientific evidence has shown that multidisciplinary programs can provide long-term weight loss at the rate of 5-10%.
