Weight Loss is Not Always about What the Scale Says

09/23/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

I recently saw a post-surgical patient who was frustrated that the scale had not showed any weight loss even though she was eating correctly and had increased her exercise. So I asked Erin Light, Fitness Coordinator, to do a body analysis on her. Once completed it turned out that she was losing a good amount of body fat, however she was also increasing her lean muscle mass. Because muscle weigh more than fat, the scale showed no weight change. The truth is great changes were taking place as the muscle…

But just like any new habit, it takes time to get yourself ready to adopt this kind of change in your life.

Gotta Love The Liver Reduction Diet!

09/18/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

I know how hard it is to find variety on the Liver Reduction Diet (LRD). It really takes some searching if you are trying to enjoy food and still be on the LRD. Another problem is there is no set amount of carbs per day so it is really hard to tell if a recipe you find is within the carbs per day limits. I have been looking over the Cooking Light magazine that comes monthly to Clarian Bariatrics and it is hard to tell if some of the things in there are allowable or not. Let me tell you, I was surprised…
