Regardless of the type of Bariatric Surgery you may have had, the importance of Post Surgery Ongoing Nutrition & Supplements cannot be underestimated . It is absolutely crucial to your long term health and weight loss success.
Pre-surgery, some of you will have been eating junk food and food that mostly satisfied an emotional need or emptiness. Let’s face it, its easier sometimes to get ready made take away than actually thinking about what you are going to prepare, cook and eat. It takes thought, organisation and preparation. When we are on the slippery slope of not really caring about ourselves and faced with what feels like insurmountable weight issues, its just easy to give in to the immediate gratification that can be found in fast food and take aways.
Here at Savvy we are not about dieting. We are about eating for health and wellbeing but enjoying everything we put in our mouth. Eating after surgery is going to be quite different. You need to acknowledge that and understand it in order for you to embrace the journey you are on or about to embark on.
How good would you feel to finally be in control of food instead of food controlling you? Eating without deprivation, automatically knowing what portion size relates to without measuring anything, and finally tasting your food, savouring every bite just like a wine connoisseur experiences wine. Well you can and when you master this you will master your weight.
New Lifestyle - New Adjustments
As you progress through the stages of re-introducing food in to your new lifestyle most likely you will find that some of your favourite foods don’t agree with you anymore. This can be really frustrating. Its a matter of keeping a list of what foods you can now eat without consequence and which ones cause problems. Taste buds change and the effect of some foods on our systems change – its just a matter of adjusting to the new conditions as it were.
