Good and bad foods

Published on August 9, 2010

Typically, it is counterproductive for people trying to lose or maintain weight to think of foods as “good or bad”.

In small amounts, and on special occasions, most foods can have a place in a balanced diet.
It is alarming however, how many people bascially live on fast foods and consider french fries a vegetable! I was recently working with a patient who was keeping a food journal in preparation for lap band surgery. While I can applaud her honesty for admitting it, this patient ate fast food for almost every meal. Obviously anyone trying to lose or maintain weight will not do so eating high calorie, high fat meals!

Patients who succeed after bariatric surgery do so because they change their life style, especially when it comes to food choices. A treat of an In and Out Burger and fries, should be just that. A treat on a rare occasion!
