The Baritastic app can track weight loss, nutrition and exercise. It offers reminders for appointments, plus vitamin and supplement needs. Other features include a timer to track chewing (a feature particularly important for bariatric patients), recipes, general information about the bariatric program and much more.
“Our goal is to create successful outcomes for those on their journey to weight loss, and the Baritastic app helps achieve this goal,” said Donald Yarbrough, MD, surgeon and medical director of Samaritan Weight Management Institute. “We’re now able to offer a support tool that’s available at a patient’s fingertips for additional help they may need – regardless of where they are.”
Patients and those interested in bariatric surgery are encouraged to get the app. To access, search major app stores for Baritastic. Then download the app and enter code 84280 – this will connect you with Samaritan Weight Management Institute.
