My Bariatric Life

My Bariatric Life, Health Guide

(Profile)
I grew from fit to fat and became a processed food junkie and couch potato with diabetes, celiac disease, depression, acid reflux, asthma, and hypertension. I was in my 30s, morbidly obese and on ~10 prescription medications. Since 2003 I've maintained massive weight loss from gastric bypass surgery and remain free from 9 of the 10 prescriptions. Then in 2013 I underwent body contouring and facial plastic surgeries to remove the last traces of my former obesity. Nowadays I am committed to supporting the online patient community with outstanding resources and by sharing my long-term success in defeating obesity and obesity-related illnesses. Today, I'm a size small (down from a size 24W) and living larger than ever!

Some of their claims... Read moreChevron

Juice Cleansing Pros

The Proceed with Caution Approach to Juice Cleansing As with most things, there are pros and cons to juice cleansing. There are those who endorse the process and those who do not. This is as it should be, good old checks and balances. Before anyone plunges into a liquid diet for what could be weeks, it might be best to research and consider... Read moreChevron

Juices For Weight Loss

Juices For Weight Loss In my last post, "To Juice or Not to Juice," I wrote a bit about the pros and cons of fruit juice. It was noted that homemade juices that combine certain fresh fruits and fresh leafy vegetables can add fat burning vitamins and minerals to your diet, as well as enhance your metabolism. While diet and exercise is still the... Read moreChevron

To Juice or Not to Juice

To Juice or Not to Juice? That Is the Question So what's it going to be? One camp warns against the notion that juice is a thumbs up weight loss component while another advocates for juice to the point where food is put on hiatus for days or weeks and juice and water is all that is consumed. Which to choose then?    Fortunately, there... Read moreChevron
