You’ve gone through bariatric surgery and committed to making changes that will lead to a healthier lifestyle. To make it work, there are things you MUST avoid.
There is no delicate way to say this. We have always set ourselves apart from other bariatric support groups in that we don’t look the other way while post ops continue to eat the bad carbs. We try and bring folks back to the bariatric reality. We coax you to knock off the pasta, rice, tortillas or bread and very often people get mad or try and justify it. For years we’ve watched people blow through this surgery and they all have the same story. Everyone thinks they are ‘different’, that they can handle the bad carbs and the sugar (they don’t get sick!) and ‘because they have lost 100 pounds in 7 months they must be doing something right’. Please understand, the surgery was responsible for your 100 pound drop. It’s a gift.
