Dr. Pablo Garcia



I share with you the excitement and joy of the publication of the digital version of my book I am more than my Balance, an exciting journey to your life free of obesity:

Being obese in a society that is inclined to worship the slim body is both a physical and emotional challenge. If you suffer from obesity or know someone with this condition closely, you will fully understand this premise.

Although many believe that obesity consists only of having an excessive amount of body fat caused by a lack of control in food intake, the reality is that it is a complex disease with multiple causes that increases the risk of other heart conditions, diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, and even cancer; However, what weighs the most on those who suffer from it is the emotional burden, pain, frustration and misunderstanding that are suffered beyond the pounds and that we often overlook.
This is the reason why Dr. Pablo García has echoed this reality that he himself lived at a time in his life. Yes, a bariatric doctor who transcended obesity and reveals to us how others can achieve it through love and empathy.

An easy-to-read book, where the inspiring story of the author converges, together with his vast medical knowledge, motivational exercises and self-management tools, which makes implementing this unique proposal much simpler, real, achievable and fun than expected.

I am more than my balance is a work that motivates a change from the essence, making the reader transform their behavior, understanding how to face obesity without fear and without prejudice, to improve their attitude about themselves and others, and above all, learning to live in a new way, being more aware.

A perfect gift for those who have already tried everything without successful results and who are hopeful of finding the solution to their problem. Here you have it, it’s up to you to take action and welcome the obesity-free life you deserve. Now is the time to accompany you to value, recognize and reconnect with your before to dream, build and fully live your after.

I hope your comments, that you share this message and see you without obesity!

Life & Health

I never write reviews, but I have to because my experience was amazing and out of this world. From the moment I walked into his office, he spoke to me in the most honest way. He honestly told me that VSG was a great surgery for someone like me, but that in the end it would be my choice. When I first walked into his office, I just wanted information, but after seeing how attentive he was, I felt comfortable talking about my weight issues. He is so respectful, honest and makes me feel like a long time friend! I had SGBV on 1/10/2018. I trusted Dr. Pablo García and my life has changed since then. Thank you Dr. García !!

Interview in Esta Noche Mariasela


Interview in Esta Noche Mariasela with Vianney Rossell (@migordarealidad), a 36-year-old young woman who, as a result of the asthma she had suffered since childhood and the abuse of steroids to treat it, came to suffer from morbid obesity and multiple diseases caused by it. Losing her mother at age 16 to a stroke and shortly after her father suffered another stroke that would eventually lead to death, she gave up her aspirations to study at university to care for him and fell into deep depression, which made her reach up to 650 pounds in weight.
