Super Bowl Sunday ranks up there with Thanksgiving as one of days of the year with the highest average caloric consumption. For gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and gastric band patients, consuming more calories than they need is contrary to their goal of achieving weight loss.
Turkey is the traditional protein for Thanksgiving. Most adults don’t cook a whole turkey many other days out of the year, so they are often left wondering how to use the leftover turkey.
Gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and gastric band patients know that exercise, along with their low calorie diet, is crucial to maximize their weight loss success. There’s just no getting around the fact that exercise helps burn calories, reduce body fat, build lean muscle mass, and helps improve both blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Workouts and strength training should be incorporated into a bariatric patient’s new lifestyle after they have been cleared to exercise by their bariatric surgeon.
