Top 5 Foods to Avoid after Bariatric Surgery | Blossom Bariatrics | Las Vegas

Hi, I’m Michelle Phelan, Nutritionist at Blossom
Bariatrics. 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 bariatric
surgery. The first one on the list is high sugary, high calorie coffee drinks. Anything
that’s a frappucino, anything that looks like a coffee milkshake, kick it to the curb. Those
are one of the worst culprits ever. Alright, number two, processed carbs. Now you all know
about these, but somehow they still find a way to sneak back in to your pantry and in
to 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 mini
cupcakes, pies, little tiny 100 calorie snack packs. Those are some of the worst culprits
ever. The third thing, of course, is salad dressings. You think you’re doing great with
a delicious salad, but then you pile on a high calorie salad dressing that’s full of
a fat that’s not beneficial. The best way to go is an olive oil based salad dressing
like 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 think
they 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 per
serving. You also have to remember, usually those big cans or those big containers carry
two to three servings. So if you just finish off one you’re actually getting three times
the 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 protein
smoothies 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 there
like chocolate syrup and all that deliciousness, we need to make sure that when we say smoothies
it’s very, very lean on the fruit so those fruit smoothies at those wonderful delicious
Jamba 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. Keep
your smoothies protein based. Thanks for watching. If you would like more tips and information,

  1. What if you make your own smoothie at home. With sugar free coconut milk, half a banana and a scoop of whey protein. You know what you adding to the smoothie if you make it at home

  2. This is so annoying, you put up a video for us to watch….BUT you never reply to anyones questions, what the hell is that all about. REPLY!

  3. She didn't really say much other then "really, really and the top" didn't seem like she knew what she's talking about. Didn't give the best info. I'd like to see this video redone with better information and more informative accurate details.
