Did You Know? Part I

12/15/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

They way you use garlic can have vastly different health benefits? I sure did not know this! Clinical trials have shown that eating about two cloves of garlic per day may help prevent platelets in blood from clumping, which may help keep your arteries unobstructed and reduce your risk of heart attack. Lab studies have linked those benefits to thiosulfinates, compounds that also give garlic and onions their pungent smell. To test how different preparation and cooking methods affected thiosulfinates,…

Be Someone’s Life Preserver

12/12/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

The following is a daily inspiration by Katie Jay: Most weight loss surgery patients know what they should be doing to be successful but almost everyone struggles from time to time. When you are struggling, do you find it hard to reach out for help? A lot of people feel so bad about what they are doing, they retreat in shame.

Recipe: Liver Reduction Diet Approved Ketchup!

12/11/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

My husband would never be able to do the Liver Reduction Diet because to him ketchup is a food group all it’s own, and not a condiment to be used sparingly. I found a recipe that takes some work but for those of you, like my husband, it is better then living without the red goodness! Now I am not saying you can eat the whole recipe at one sitting, but this is still a much healthier version than available in the stores. Make a few batches at one time and store in a sealed glass jar in the refrigerator.…

12/09/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

Many patients will ask, “How much will I lose with the gastric band?” or “I heard you will not lose weight long term with the band.” The amount of weight that you will lose is dependent on multiple factors. You will need to be committed to your new lifestyle. Making good food choices with emphasis on protein foods (lean meats, dairy products, eggs, etc) and vegetables over starchy foods (breads, pasta, rice, etc), snack foods, and avoiding any food and beverages that are liquid…

Cook it Carefully

12/07/2009 | WellnessBariatric & Medical Weight Loss

I saw this article in the July issue of Cooking Light magazine and I thought it was great information to share. Vitamins come in two forms: fat-soluble, with includes vitamins A, D, E, and K; and water-soluble, such as vitamin C and B vitamins (like thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, and folate). As the name suggests, water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water- either inside your body or on your stovetop. (Fat-soluble vitamins employ different absorption mechanisms.) “Fruits and vegetables are 80 to…
