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!

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.

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 o
