Why does Active Bariatric Nutrition matter, and how can you help me?

I have combined my years of experience as a Registered Dietitian, working with bariatric patients and with athletes to help post-surgery patients minimize the feelings of fatigue and frustration that can come from living a more active lifestyle. This can result from nutritional advice that isn’t adequate for your activity level or tailored for post-bariatric patients. I can help you navigate between these two areas to create an individualized fueling plan that helps you reach your goals.
Many post-bariatric patients struggle with continual fatigue due to post-surgery nutrition guidelines that don’t provide enough energy for the physical demands of an active lifestyle, and even basic hydration can be difficult with certain surgical limitations. Those that turn to traditional sports supplements, drinks, or food recommendations may run into problems with side effects that make them feel miserable. These issues can lead to feelings of frustration, or worse lead to setbacks from illness or injury.

Working out is hard enough without making it harder from inadequate nutrition and hydration.

Most nutritional guidance that is available for post-bariatric patients is heavily focused on just the initial weight-loss phase, and then the maintenance phase, and trying to prevent weight regain. Often these guidelines are not sufficient for sustaining regular exercise and can make high intensity and high endurance activities nearly impossible.
Post-bariatric patients who pursue a more active lifestyle can find themselves feeling fatigued, struggling with the negative side-effects of using traditional sports drinks and foods, or finding it difficult to stay properly hydrated with the physiological changes to the body after surgery. These issues may even lead to feelings of failure, leading to further emotional and physical setbacks.

This is where individualized nutrition guidance is crucial to keep you moving forwards to your goals.
