More Tips To Kick Bad Habits After Weight Loss Surgery
Plan your meals
Plan all of your meals around a solid source of lean protein, such as salmon, tuna or chicken. Then, pair your protein with low-starch veggies such as asparagus or green beans. Don’t hesitate to utilize seasonings, such as dry rubs and spices, to keep your meals exciting and to add some variety.
Trash the triggers
Kick your food triggers out of the house for good. If it’s hard for you, ask your family members or a close friend to help you by keeping tempting foods in another cabinet or even putting them in another fridge out in the garage.
Create a support system
Call a family or friend meeting where you have an honest conversation with everyone about which foods you need to stay away from and which ones are okay for you. When you cut back on refined starchy foods and sweets, it will be hard at first, but stay the course and drink plenty of water. You’ll notice positive results and begin feeling better day by day. You’ll be so happy you stuck it out!
