plant medicine list
hi, i'm michelle phelan, nutritionist at blossombariatrics. today we're going to discuss a few very helpful tips for bariatric patients.today i'm here to discuss the top five foods of folks who are candidates for bariatricsurgery. the first one on the list is high sugary, high calorie coffee drinks. anythingthat's a frappucino, anything that looks like a coffee milkshake, kick it to the curb. thoseare one of the worst culprits ever. alright,
plant medicine list, number two, processed carbs. now you all knowabout these, but somehow they still find a way to sneak back in to your pantry and into your cupboards, alright? so here we go and i'm going to name them, bread, pasta,cereal, granola, chips, crackers, cookies, bagels, muffins, english muffins, little minicupcakes, pies, little tiny 100 calorie snack
packs. those are some of the worst culpritsever. the third thing, of course, is salad dressings. you think you're doing great witha delicious salad, but then you pile on a high calorie salad dressing that's full ofa fat that's not beneficial. the best way to go is an olive oil based salad dressinglike italian, olive-oil vinaigrette. of course, these are all the best choices. number four,high sugar energy drinks, these are really, really one of the top things. people thinkthey are doing a great job because it says high energy, b vitamins, other amino acids,but if you look at the sugar content, typically they're at least 24-48 grams of sugar perserving. you also have to remember, usually those big cans or those big containers carrytwo to three servings. so if you just finish
off one you're actually getting three timesthe amount of sugar that's listed per serving on the label on the back. number five, smoothies,now we need to pay attention folks. smoothies don't automatically equal health. now proteinsmoothies made with your whey protein isolate powder or your plant based protein powder,those are what i'm talking about, if you don't add a lot of fruit and other things in therelike chocolate syrup and all that deliciousness, we need to make sure that when we say smoothiesit's very, very lean on the fruit so those fruit smoothies at those wonderful deliciousjamba juice and tropical smoothie places,
even if you add whey protein as the option,you're still getting way too much fruit and way too much sugar. so the ratio is off. keepyour smoothies protein based. thanks for watching.
