It’s summer in Florida, and you know what that means: heat! When it’s hot outside and you don’t want to turn on the oven and heat up the house, salad can be a great choice for lunch or dinner.
Memorial Day is on its way and in light of new CDC guidance, celebrations will likely commence this May 31st. Often gatherings of family and friends are centered around a grill. Cookouts are usually an easy meal for bariatric patients to work around as they are often centered around proteins.
In addition to performing gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and lap band surgeries, Dr. Shillingford, MD, PA, is also renowned for his skills in performing laparoscopic and robotic surgeries, including hernia surgery. Many bariatric patients are at a higher risk of hernias, largely due to a history of obesity.
With over 42% of adults in the US living with obesity, there are literally millions of people trying to lose weight every day. While diet and exercise are the first step in weight loss, they are often not the answer for long term weight loss for many adults.
As part of Dr. Shillingford’s bariatric surgery package (including his out of pocket packages), Dr. Shillingford’s office communicates to his patients via a monthly emailed newsletter.
Southwestern flavors are often a big hit. Turkey is a great choice for a southwestern inspired meal as the meat is often bland on its own and the spices add a nice flavor. While tacos are usually eaten with a corn or flour shell or tortilla, those add carbohydrates. Gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and lap band patients can get the taco flavors they love with fewer carbs by making a skillet meal instead.
