Facing the Truth: Hard Bariatric No-No's for Long-Term Weight Loss
At Bariatric Eating, we believe that honesty is the best policy. That's why we don't sugarcoat the truth about what you need to do to maintain long-term weight loss after bariatric surgery. While other support groups may tell you that it's okay to indulge in certain foods in moderation, we know that continuing to eat the wrong types of carbs is a recipe for disaster.
We've seen too many people regain weight because they refused to hear the hard "No's" of bariatric surgery. That's why we're here to help you understand the importance of avoiding certain foods so you can achieve lasting success.
Here are some of the hard "No's" of bariatric surgery that you might not want to hear:
- No bread
- No coffee shop lattes with 45 grams of sugar
- No macaroni salad
- No unnecessary crunch
- No tortillas
- No rice
- No crackers
- No processed junk food
We know that it's hard to give up these types of carbs, but they are not helping you achieve your goals. In fact, they are likely making you feel hungrier, which only leads to more eating and weight gain.
We're not saying that you can't ever enjoy a treat. But we want to encourage you to find new, healthier options that will satisfy your cravings without putting your health at risk. Instead of trying to force "slightly better substitutes for bad choices," try to find new foods that you love eating, such as fresh vegetables, lean proteins, and fruits.
At Bariatric Eating, we know that bariatric surgery is not the easy way out. It's a personal journey that takes hard work and dedication. But we also know that it's possible to achieve lasting weight loss if you're willing to make the right choices. That's why we're here to support you every step of the way.
