Spring Clean Your Bad Eating Habits

The snow has melted and spring has finally arrived! In addition to spring cleaning your home, it’s time to rethink your eating habits. If you developed any bad eating habits over the winter, now is the time to start fresh. Forget New Year’s Resolutions! Spring is the time to renew yourself and start anew. Get back outside for some exercise and fresh air! And while you’re at it, here are a few tips to make the most of spring cleaning your bad eating habits:

  • Purge Your Pantry: If you packed your pantry with junk food over the winter get rid of it and start over with clean, healthy foods.
  • Organize Your Recipes: If your recipes are all over the place and you have a hard time finding what you are looking for then find a system that works for you. If your recipes are on paper perhaps buy a new notebook to store them in alphabetically or by course. If they are in emails or on your computer try starting a Pinterest board to organize your recipes and view them easily.
  • Make a Meal Plan: The easiest way for most people to stay on track is to have a plan. Take time over the weekend to plan your meals for the upcoming week. You won’t regret it.

Thomas' success story

I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man.

Everybody treated me like a king. The day of surgery, I was excited. The hospital couldn’t be any nicer. I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man. My recovery was awesome. I was out of bed that day. My wife and kids were my motivation on getting this surgery. They are my whole life. I’m happy I’m going to be around for them.

Nicole's success story

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.

Samantha's success story

I feel like a completely different person.

I had the gastric sleeve procedure. The driving factor behind me getting this procedure was my health. I didn't feel good physically or mentally. I had joint pains, even standing was difficult sometimes. Emotionally, this surgery completely turned my life around. I have so much more confidence. So much more happiness. I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger. I feel able to accomplish more.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.
