Yes, yes, yes EVERYONE talks about doing something new at the beginning of each year. And then they talk about it AGAIN as summer approaches. This year will be no different. MILLIONS of dollars will be spent on gym memberships, trainers, bogus supplements, gluten free foods, Fitbits, pedometers, sauna suits, and NEW bathroom scales. (Because we all know the old one must be defective!)
The truth is, deep down inside, people believe that if they spend enough money on something it WILL work. It HAS to. Failure is not an option when your are heavily invested in something.
And yet, most people will fall off the exercise/diet/torture myself bandwagon because it simply isn’t sustainable long term. It’s exhausting and usually puts a person at odds with the realities of every day life.
How about no more bandwagons? No more New Year Restarts? How about learning to make small, significant changes to what you are already doing? How about getting real answers about supplements and taking only what is helpful and rooted in legitimate research? Maybe you need some help understanding your diabetes or your post-bariatric surgery diet. Maybe you just need a little “know how” when it comes to grocery shopping.
That’s what the dietitians at Rudog do. We help by educating you and working with you, where you are right now in your health pursuits. No gimmicks, no magic pills, just the truth.
If you need additional services, like a trainer or blood work done, we can point you in the right direction.
Talk to a real dietitian and get your questions answered today. Waiting changes nothing, calling can change something.

Eating after bariatric surgery can be hard. But you have to follow the diet!
I want to remind you and encourage you that you have to stay the course! The years ahead will be full of good, old fashioned life. Some of it will be great, some of it will be good, and some of it will be bad. It will never be predictable and easy. You have to be prepared for every day. Eating after bariatric surgery means you do not have the luxury of taking a day off. You must follow your bariatric diet every day. (Yes, this is my pep talk!) If you don’t follow your special bariatric diet, you could be putting your health in danger. So, here are some things to think about when you feel overwhelmed or frustrated. Just keep it simple and remember these three things:
The volume of food that you eat is very important. Even if the food choice isn’t perfect, the AMOUNT that you eat is VERY important. Do not overeat!
You need to alternate eating and drinking, with approximately 30-45 minutes between each activity.
Don’t eat stupid calories. (Do I really need to say anything more here?)
Now, of course, this is not an exhaustive list of do’s and don’ts. This is not intended to replace any dietary instruction that you have been given. It is intended to remind you that the basics are really important, even when life isn’t making things easy for you. If you aren’t sure how to eat after your bariatric surgery, or have questions about what is okay and not okay to do, call your dietitian or physician today. It’s okay to have questions, it is not okay to not get answers.
If you need a post-surgery check up or just need a pep talk about how to eat after bariatric surgery, don’t wait any longer!
