5 Foods that Won’t Ruin Your Diet
After your weight loss surgery, the way you eat and digest food will change. Thankfully, eating the right foods can help you get back on track. After weight loss surgery, your stomach won’t be able to hold as much food as it did before surgery. It’s important to understand that surgery is life-changing. That’s why a high-quality diet is important to not only help you recover quickly but also maintain your overall healthy diet in the long run.
Permanent weight loss is largely determined by what we eat
Here is a list of foods that will provide your body with the nutrition and energy it needs to speed up your recovery and maintain your nutrient stores. The best part is these foods are delicious!
Berries are low-calorie nutrient powerhouses that help the body in repairing damage. Try raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, pomegranates, grapes or goji berries. Berries are also shown to keep you feeling full. A study found that people who had a 65-calorie berry snack ate less food at a subsequent meal than those who ate a 65-calorie candy. Additionally, eating berries may yield positive effects on blood pressure, inflammation and cholesterol levels.
Eating whole grains may help with weight management. Whole grains provide many nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and fiber which are vital for a healthy diet. When given a choice, go for whole grain breads and cereals rather than processed, refined versions. Commonly eaten whole grain super-foods include quinoa, oatmeal, barley and brown rice.Research shows that whole grain helps with weight control and lowers cholesterol, especially harmful ones.
Probiotics are live and healthy bacteria that your body needs to digest food. Some of the most common forms of probiotic-rich foods are yogurt, kimchi, raw apple cider vinegar, miso, tempeh, kefir and sauerkraut. Research has shown that having probiotics as part of diet can be very helpful in losing weight and belly fat.
Fresh fruits and vegetables
Most fruits and vegetables fit into a healthy diet but it is important to know which types of fruit and vegetables are best at helping lose weight. Make sure that you avoid processed and canned goods. Examples of fruits to add to your diet include apples, bananas, mango or peach for fruits. For vegetables, try broccoli, cauliflower and spinach. Aside from aiding in weight loss, fruits and vegetables are also essential to healing during your recovery from surgery.
One egg can give you a dose of protein, calcium, iron, zinc, riboflavin, folic acid and vitamins A, E, Kand B complex. There’s a reason why eggs are traditionally one of the first meals served to recovering individuals. The best part is that eggs are easy to serve and prepare.
While these five foods won’t sabotage your diet, it’s important to sustain behaviors and habits related to food to avoid slipping back to an unhealthy lifestyle. Pay particular attention to the types of food you eat and seek advice from your physician before adding new ones to your diet. Allow your body to absorb the essential nutrients it needs. But don’t get too overwhelmed though! Your weight loss surgery is meant to improve your quality of life. “Mindful” eating is an important habit to develop in order to achieve permanent weight loss. It is encouraged to adopt this new eating habit after surgery. Basically, mindful eating is a habit of eating slowly and taking time to chew your food. Studies show that when we take the time to completely chew and savor our food, we naturally eat less and maintain a healthy weight. Interested to know more about what to eat after surgery?
