What changes will you have to make? - KSLA News 12 Shreveport, Louisiana News Weather & Sports

What changes will you have to make?

  1. Eating three meals a day and eating only at meal time.

2. Eating solid foods at meals, with less red meat and more fruits and vegetables.

    They will keep you full longer and reduce fat intake.

 

3. Eating slower, taking smaller bites of food and chewing food completely.

 

4. Drinking before meals. The liquids we recommend are water, skimmed milk, and

    low calorie beverages. Drink enough fluids so that you are never thirsty, never

    dizzy when standing, and you urinate at least three times every 24 hours. These are

    the signs of adequate hydration.

 

5. Markedly decrease high calorie drinks such as soda pop, beer, and milk shakes

    form your diet. Operated patients who continue to drink these high calorie

    beverages on a regular basis have had poorer weight loss. By sipping on high

    calorie liquids throughout the day or by taking them with meals, a lot of calories

    can be consumed without getting the effect of fullness and will frequently cause

    “dumping syndrome”.

 

6. Stop eating as soon as you are full, one more mouthful will make you feel very

    Uncomfortable, and may cause vomiting.
