We are so excited to be launching our online nutrition services this month! We plan to make it our mission to provide accessible, convenient and reasonably priced nutrition services to the bariatric population all over North America. Whether you are planning for surgery, have recently had surgery, or are years after surgery, we have a package to set you up for success. Each of these phases of surgery come with their own challenges. Let us be your food and nutrition experts to make the journey a little easier!
--> Are you thinking about having bariatric surgery? Or have you already signed up for surgery?
Planning for a life changing surgery can be overwhelming enough! Our goal is to prepare you physically and mentally for the journey ahead. We will review your expectations for life after surgery, including a realistic weight loss goal, and how and what you will be eating after surgery (short- and long-term). We will also discuss what changes you can make pre-op to start improving your food habits. With our Prep Me for Surgery package, there will be no unwanted surprises after the big day.
--> Have you recently had bariatric surgery?
The first year after surgery is super critical! Getting in enough protein to maintain your muscles, having regular meals and snacks, making healthy food choices at work and on the go, creating balanced meals, finding moderation with those salty and sweet foods, etc. are just some of the aspects we touch on. Finding your new normal and being able to tolerate all foods again can take up to 6 to 12 months. The process can seem long and daunting at times (ask any post-op patient!). With our Set Me Up for Success package, we will be with you every step of the way.
--> Are you years after bariatric surgery?
The ‘real’ work begins 1 to 2 years after surgery and lasts the rest of your life (again, ask any bariatric patient!). Maintaining good eating habits and regular exercise is no easy task. Weight regain is a reality that many clients struggle with and are embarrassed about. We are 100% non-judgemental, we promise. Whatever the cause of your weight gain, we will get to the bottom of it. If you are ready to put in the work and start using your tool (i.e. your bariatric surgery) the way it was intended, then sign up for our Get Me Back on Track package. It is never too late!
In a community that is overloaded with food and nutrition information for bariatric patients, from bariatric blogs/vlogs, to bariatric Facebook groups, to bariatric support groups, it can be almost impossible to sort out the facts from the myths. We are here to equip you with nutrition knowledge, tips, and tricks that will last you a lifetime.
Did you know that bariatric patients do best when followed by a dietitian?
Let us be your go-to food and nutrition experts. Don’t walk your journey alone.
We can’t wait to start working with you!
