Back to Basics – Bariatric Edition

The sun is shining and summer is right around the corner.  It is time to take off that last layer of clothing and we are thinking about our bathing suits and that summer vacation that we have been planning for a while now.  Front headlines are shouting about their latest “bikini ready diet” or “shed 20 lbs in 10 days” nonsense.  You know how we really really really want to believe this and sometimes fall for this unrealistic stuff ?  You know that it’s not going to be different so let’s focus on clean eating because nonsensical diets can make it even more difficult to control the weight in the long run.

What do you do instead of falling for nonsensical headlines ?  It’s time to get back to the basics and to make a plan and to write it down on paper and to take action today (okay okay, or tomorrow morning) and start planning on how you are going to lose those last lbs or get rid of that regain that you have had over the last few months.  Set  your goal and let’s get to it.  We can make a whole lot of changes over a month instead of trying to cram it all in over a 10 day period.  Massive short bursts of effort are not as effective as focused, and controlled eating and activity.  For example, you can cut down on your sugar consumption, drink more water, take a daily walk and aim to get 5 servings of vegetables per day.  Those are realistic small changes which can add up to a big result over a 4 week period.

If you are looking for a 21 day menu plan loaded with whole foods, a food swap list, grocery lists, recipes – and a plan that works, created for bariatric clients, then check out the Bariatric Back on Track – Reset   No nonsense guide to real eating to lose weight and feel better after a slump or a regain.  

Follow the program’s simple and yummy meal plans. The done-for-you recipe book and food swap list are empowering and easy to follow. Your food journal helps you identify and correct unhealthy eating habits. Eat your way with our reset program to long term bariatric surgery success.

I want you to know that I know how hard you are working to reach your goals and I know how truly committed you are to this process.  Keep on keeping on and moving forward through this journey.  You are going to achieve your goals.
