Teenage Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery


weight loss surgery before after vsg gastiric sleeve teenage bariatric surgery

With the rising obesity epidemic it is really important for our next generation to be pro-active about their health! Many children lose control of their weight at an early age which can have a dreadful impact on a critical time during the development of their careers.

It was once thought that weight loss surgery is similar to Lasik surgery in the sense that a potential patient should wait until they are well into adulthood before having surgery. Teens were told to weight before having weight loss surgery.

However new scientific studies offer evidence that bariatric weight loss surgery can be performed on individuals during the later portion of their teenage years. In fact, on average the adolescent’s who underwent weight loss surgery fared better on average than their older counter parts!

This delicious chicken recipe doesn't need a lot of ingredients but packs in a lot of flavors. Sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, iron, and calcium, and also have beta-carotene, which is an antioxidant!

Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons whole-grain or Dijon mustard
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
    • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
    • 1½-2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed
    • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 1 large red onion, cut into 1-inch wedges

Directions

  • 1 Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450°F. Place a large rimmed baking sheet in the oven to preheat.
  • 2 Combine mustard, thyme, 1 tablespoon oil and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl; spread the mixture evenly on chicken.
  • 3 Toss sweet potatoes and onion in a bowl with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven and spread the vegetables on it. Place the chicken on top of the vegetables.
  • 4 Return the pan to the oven and roast, stirring the vegetables once halfway through, until the vegetables are tender and beginning to brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted into a chicken thigh registers 165°F, 30 to 35 minutes.
  • Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

Turmeric: A Super Root


turmeric heading

In order for our bodies to work properly, we have to keep them well fueled. What you eat can make a huge difference in your energy levels, your mood, and of course your overall health. It's important that your diet is giving your body the best fuel possible.  A super food that has been proven to contain many health benefits is turmeric. Turmeric is a root that is similar to ginger, and it can be found most notably in curry. (It's what gives curry it's beautiful yellow color.) In India, the belief that turmeric holds various health properties has persisted for thousands of years, and now science is proving that belief to be correct.

The main ingredient of Turmeric is curcumin, which is where it derives its numerous health benefits. One of its perks is that it's an antioxidant. Antioxidants help to counteract the effects of aging and disease that are caused by the oxidation of tissue. Curcumin also increases the productivity of the antioxidants that are already present in our system. So not only does it block oxidants from damaging our tissues, but it also strengthens the other antioxidants in our body so that they work better. 

In addition, curcumin works as an anti-inflammatory. Low-level, chronic inflammation is thought to be responsible for a variety of chronic illnesses that afflict many people, such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's, and other degenerative diseases. It can help to prevent heart disease by improving the function of our blood vessel lining, which regulates things like blood pressure as well as blood clotting. In addition, curcumin has been shown to be effective in the treatment of arthritis, as some patients have reported that it works just as well as other anti-inflammatory drugs.

Curcumin also has the ability to help elevate levels of a growth hormone called Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). BDNF is shown to prevent brain-related diseases, and low levels of BDNF correspond with certain health issues such as depression and Alzheimer's Disease. Alzheimer's Disease is in part caused by inflammation as well as oxidation, and curcumin works to counteract them both.

A powerful remedy for cystic acne is a relatively simple mixture of turmeric with equal parts fresh lemon juice and unfiltered apple cider vinegar. It creates a paste that is extremely effective in preventing and healing acne cysts. The only downside is that it can temporarily dye the skin, so it's best to do it at night before bed.

The amount of curcumin in turmeric is relatively small, so it's recommended to use a turmeric extract in order to receive the full benefit of its potential. Another way to boost your body's ability to absorb curcumin is by eating it with piperine, which is the chemical in pepper that makes it spicy. It's also recommended to consume turmeric with a meal heavy in fat because curcumin is fat-soluble, which means it needs fat to break down.

The best health plan is prevention, and using turmeric is a great way to help your body fight against the degenerative diseases that are prevalent in today's society.

Keto Diet: A Helpful Short-Term Tool


KETO 2

Everyone is talking about The Keto diet! Many celebrities swear that it is the fastest and most effective way to shed weight. The diet is essentially an extremely low carb regiment. By eliminating carbohydrates, your body goes into a natural state of ketosis where it breaks down the fats in your liver and produces ketones. This is a process called beta-oxidation, and the ketones are used to fuel your brain and body, instead of what your body normally uses for fuel, which is glucose, or sugar. Anyways, all that science means that your body is actually burning fat instead of using its other sources of energy!

There can be many other benefits to switching to a low carb diet too. Not only is it an effective method for weight loss, but it can also help prevent and maintain diabetes by controlling your blood sugar. Additionally, making this change can also improve brain functionality as well. Studies have shown that increased fatty acid intake can aid your concentration and focus. Keto benefits don’t stop there either! The diet has also been shown to be good for your skin and help clear up acne!

So what exactly is a Keto diet? When following a keto diet, it's good to avoid things with sugar, such as bread, fruit, or starchy foods like potatoes and beans. What you should be eating are things like meat, greens, seeds, nuts, and other fatty foods like milk and cheese. The majority of food to be consumed is fat, followed by protein and then a small number of carbs. Green, leafy vegetables are best, such as Kale and Spinach!

There are some potential side effects associated with the Keto diet. It is possible to experience cramping in the legs as well as constipation. In order to best prevent this, it is important to keep hydrated. When switching to a high fat, low carb diet the body goes through a transitional period where it adapts to burning fat instead of glucose. During that time you might feel tired but that is normal! Your energy levels will return to normal after your body has finished adapting to using a new fuel source.

It is truly fascinating the way the human body works and how what we eat directly affects our ability to function. Whether or not you're interested in trying the Keto diet, it's best to do your own research and formulate a plan that is best for you!

Snacking Tips After Bariatric Surgery


 

snacking-tips-cover

#1 – MINIMIZE PROCESSED CARBS!

Various protein cocktails

Processed Carbohydrates are absolutely detrimental to your weight loss regime for so many reasons! Simple processed carbs spike insulin levels and increase the risk of diabetes and a number of other diseases. They are also quickly converted by the body in to excess fat. Processed and poor quality carbs such as potato chips are damaging as well.

 

#2 – MAXIMIZE PROTEIN & GOOD FATS

weight loss tips surgery protein low carb gastric surery bypass sleeve

Your body NEEDS healthy fats and protein to work properly! Healthy fats ensure proper fuctionality of your organs and proteins are used to properly recovery of your bodily systems and maintain lean muscle mass. They make you feel full too!

 

#3 – DON’T EAT FAST, TAKE BREAKS!

weight losss surgery before after tips sugar carbs

 

 

 

Remember that your stomache pouch has been changed and is now smaller. Give your food time to digest so it will stay down and not go back up! But also be mindful of oversnacking the wrong foods.

 

#4 – ALWAYS STAY HYDRATED

Your body is made up of more than 60 percent water! Drinking it curbs hunger and gives you energy so be sure to replace your hydration often!

Potential Trigger Foods After Weight Loss Surgery


triggerfoods

After having weight loss surgery the digestive system of the body is altered and its response to the same food you have always eaten may change. Although each surgery is unique, and each body responds to different foods in their own way, these are the certain foods groups that BeLiteWeight recommends caution. Feel free to try each of them out and test them, but be careful! Don't eat too much or too fast, and always remember to chew thoroughly! 

 

bad food after weight loss surgery vsg bariatric bypass gastric band lap sleeve mini bypass vsg apple rice bread pasta chicken liquid calories ice cream 1. Bread

Bread can expand when in contact with different liquids and chemicals in your stomache. You may want to forgo the bread basket when eating out. Save room for your meal!

Apple skins are hard to fully chew potentially causing problems with the stomaches digestion and issues smoothly going down.

It is very easy for chicken to be too dry! Make sure your chicken is very moist, maybe with a sauce, and be sure to be chew it thoroughly.

As with bread,  pasta can easily absorb liquids and expand. It is also easy to take too big of a bite which can cause the uncomfortable "stuck" feeling.

These are the worst possible food after weight loss surgery! Sugary liquids sneak their way down to your stomache without much discomfort and quickly start packing on weight!

Much like bread and pasta rice can expand a lot. Just be careful and don't eat too much or too fast!

 

Many of these foods are high in carbohydrates which takes up room in your stomache causing you to not be able to eat the protein rich foods that you need for your hair, muscles, and bodily functions. Focus on your protein first and then just a couple of bites of carbs.

Nuts for Nuts: Weight Loss & Health Benefits


nuts for nuts weight loss health nutrition surgery vsg bariatric sleeve bypass healty fat protein

When utilized properly nuts are an excellent source of high protein, nutrient dense, & low carbohydrate fuel for your body. Most nuts contain heart healthy omega-3 fats along with other specific life enhancing nutrients. However, not all nuts in the grocery store are the same!

Nut Rule #1: Minimize Carbs
The most important rule to follow when eating nuts as a weight loss tool minimize your carbohydrate intake. A lot of nut butters and trail mix come loaded with sweeteners and chocolate. Make sure to avoid these and your body will begin to rely on your body fat as energy. Don’t worry though, the healthy fat from nuts will keep you from feeling starved!

Mixed nuts healthy food weight loss low fat carbohydrate protein

Health Benefits from Different Nuts
    Almonds – Almonds are packed with Calcium and Vitamin E and their skins are full of flavonoids! They are also the lowest calorie nut per ounce at only 160!
    Macademia Nuts – Although high in fat, macademias contain mono-unsaturated fat which are actually essential and healthy. They are also full of fiber and other minerals, but they do go rancid quickly!
    Pecans – Great for the heart, pecans contain oleic avid (the healthy fat known from avocados) and plant sterols which are both known to prevent heart disease and lower cholesterol.
    Pistachio’s – Uniquely important for its vitamin B6, and the antioxidants Lutein and zeaxanthin, pistachios are also full of potassium and fiber which help you feel full!
    Cashews – Important for vegetarians, cashews contain important minerals like zinc and iron and are also jam packed with quality protein.
    Walnuts – Walnuts, like Pecans, are also especially healthy for their contribution to your heart because of a specific acid. Walnuts contain alpha linoleic acid, ALA, which reduces inflammation and oxidation in the arteries!

Cooking Fish: Tips & Recipes


fishcover , weight loss recipes fish salmon halibut tuna vsg weight loss surgery bariatric sleeve bypass

Cooking fish takes skill, but when equipped with the right knowledge it is not very hard and quite rewarding! Being high in protein and essential fats like Omega 3's, eating fish properly can be a tremendous weight loss aid. Three of the most common ways to cook fish include baking, grilling, and poaching. Here are some basic tips for each:

weight loss recipes fish salmon halibut tuna vsg weight loss surgery bariatric sleeve bypass

Baking

Coat baking sheet with cooking spray or oil and season as desired

Cook between 350 and 450 degrees for 7 to 10 minutes per inch of thickness.

No need to flip the fish, just bake and enjoy!

Grilling

Warm up a charcoal grill for 30 minutes, and a gas grill for 10 minutes on high.

Lightly oil the fish with olive or canola oil so it won’t stick to the grill.

Direct heat: Cook between 375 and 425 degrees for 4-6 minutes on each side per inch of thickness.

Indirect heat: Cook on the cool side of the grill for 15 minutes. Can be done after direct heat.

Poaching

Best for firm fish like halibut and salmon

Barely cover the fish in wine or dressing and simmer on medium heat.

Cook fillets for 8-10 minutes and full fish for 15-20 minutes.

Optional: Use the poaching liquid as a base for a sauce.
