08/20/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

Below is the rest of patient Bob Cole's personal experience at this year's Indiana State Fair. Corn! I know, it’s a starchy vegetable and high in the carbs. But, the State Fair wouldn’t be right to me without an ear of wonderful roasted Indiana Sweet Corn. If you can tolerate it, try one out WITHOUT THE BUTTER. A good ear of corn doesn’t need butter, anyway! They’re happy to prepare one that way for you. No salt too, of course. A Hoosier delicacy! Protein! Now, this…

Moments in the Clinic that Amaze Me

08/18/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

I have heard more than one time from a patient that they “have something wrong with them." When I ask them what, I am frequently shown a clavicle, which is up by your shoulder and in a person with a normal BMI this bone will be visible. Other times it is a portion of the breastbone medically called the sternum that has become visible. These are body parts that have not been noticeable for some time in our patients and as they have so many changes taking place in the bodies, when a visible hard…

Tips for Making the Most of your Farmer’s Market

08/17/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

Post a copy of the dates and times of the nearest markets on your refrigerator (we have ours taped to one of the kitchen cabinets). Have your market kit ready to go: I take all the one dollar bills I can find in the house, some spare change, and recycled bags. Introduce yourself to the growers – they’ll give you great advice on how to use products and maybe even a recipe or two. Buy in bulk and in season to save money. Take the kids and have them interact with the farmers so they’ll…

Pound for Pound

08/15/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

I always educate people that weight loss is about changing your body composition rather than just losing pounds in body weight. To improve your health, fitness, appearance, and physical abilities—strength training and cardiovascular exercise are keys to success. Since our bodies use both fat and muscle for energy, it is possible to lose weight but still have a high body fat percentage if muscle mass is lost and not being replaced. Increasing your muscle mass through exercise will help you get…
