Healthy Food Choices

As a bariatric surgery patient, we can have an enjoyable and nourishing diet. We limit the amount of food, and as long as we avoid milk and sugar, we are able to eat most foods. We are also able to develop and create healthy recipes using milk and sugar substitutes. This change in eating behaviors is made relatively easily.

Have a plan. Be the best you can be now and in the future by creating a plan of action to control your weight. Develop a meal plan and exercise routine that is right for you. A good strategy will allow you to enjoy food and lead a fulfilling life.

You have choices. Fortunately, restrictive diets are a thing of the past. You may eat whatever agrees with your stomach, with the exception of milk and sugar. Eating a balanced diet with a variety of food in small amounts makes sense for everyone. Eat only until you are full (not stuffed), chew your food well and never forget to take your daily allowance of protein.

Learn as much as you can about food. The more you know, the better you will feel. A positive attitude plus support from your family and friends goes a long way. We know your days are fuller and that you are more time conscious, energy conscious and dollar conscious. You demand quality, reliability, and more than ever, you are concerned about nutrition.

Healthy cooking has long had a reputation as a time-consuming, costly, and complicated venture. The truth is that healthy cooking does not require exotic ingredients or expensive equipment. For that matter, it doesn’t require any special culinary skills. Even a novice can prepare nutritious meals quickly and easily.

The real trick to healthy cooking, nutritionists agree, is to heed the Boy Scout motto and be prepared. That means stocking up—filling your pantry and refrigerator with nutritious, versatile staples and outfitting your kitchen with quality, user-friendly gear. What you choose to have on hand really depends on your personal likes and dislikes, as well as your lifestyle. If you are feeding a family, you need to consider their preferences, as well. The ideal goal is to create an environment that encourages healthy cooking by putting all the essential supplies within reach.
