Thanksgiving Day for the Bariatric Patient

The celebration of Thanksgiving can present itself as a great challenge for bariatric patients. If you follow these helpful tips you will not only allow yourself to enjoy the holiday, but also stay on path of your weight loss journey.

Tips for Thanksgiving Day

1. Make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day! Water helps to create the sensation of fullness
2. Before enjoying your meal, you should have at least two protein supplements
3. Enjoy your turkey– but try to avoid the skin as much as possible and pick lower calorie/lower fat white meat.
4. Fill up your plate with delicious and colorful vegetables, leaving less room for high calorie food
5. Eat off of smaller plates to trick your eyes into thinking that you are eating more.
6. Use any types of gravies or other sauces very sparingly during your meal.
7. Avoid empty and dehydrating calories found in alcoholic beverages.
8. If you want dessert- make sure to pick one type and consume a small portion.

If Thanksgiving Dinner made you fall off track, don’t fret!
We will be hosting FREE ONLINE and In-Person Support Groups to help you get back on track!

It was great. After a couple of days I was back on my feet and going, with three boys you don’t have time to be down. Now, my kids have to keep up with me!"

"I had a couple of friends who had bariatric surgery done by Dr. Garber a few years back and I decided to make the appointment. My favorite thing about the surgery is not being able to eat that much, eating whatever I want but in smaller portions. My results are amazing"
