Your Support Buddy
Apart from being an all round (pardon, well built!) nice guy, Barry knows a trick or two about weight-loss that he wants to share with you. That’s why we call him “Bariatric”
Wherever you see him on our site, pause for a moment and read his Facts to Digest, tips and other useful information.
Help is always at hand. Ask Barry a question and he will point you in the right direction.
