🚨Portion control🚨 Let this image serve as a reference tool for appropriate portions of nuts. These portion amounts may be lower than you would think but it’s important to pay attention to them. Nuts contain protein but they also contain fat, so tracking intake is important for weight loss goals. At the portions listed above you can expect fat content to be somewhere between 8-12 grams. The protein content will be between 1-4 grams. So, be mindful when snacking on nuts, grams of fat and calories add up quickly! Try to prioritize something higher in protein to stay on track. • • • • Call (504-988-5110) or direct message about appointments or with any questions. • • #bariatriclife #wlsstories #nuts #healthyeating #losingweight #wlscommunity #nola #bariatricsurgeryNola #nsv #protein #snacks #inspo #wlsjourney #extremeweightloss #weightwatchers #rygb #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #weightlosstransformation #TBC #inspo #TulaneSurgery #Caloriecounting #eatwell #advice #obesity #baritastic #gastricsleeve #bypass #wlsintsacrew at New Orleans, Louisiana

A seasonal twist on deviled eggs just in time for Halloween! One egg has 6 grams of protein so we love them for snacks. Bring these to a party or keep them around the house for a great protein packed treat! INGREDIENTS 12 large eggs 1/2 c. Low fat mayonnaise or unflavored Greek yogurt Juice of 1/2 lemon 1 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 2 tbsp. paprika 4 chives, cut into small pieces DIRECTIONS: 1. Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan and add enough water to cover eggs with 2" of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook, covered, 1 minute. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, 14 minutes, then rinse under cold water. 2. Crack shells and carefully peel under cool running water. 3. Halve eggs lengthwise. Spoon out yolks into a small bowl and place whites on a serving platter. Using a fork, mash yolks, then stir in mayonnaise or yogurt, lemon juice, and Dijon and season with salt and pepper. 4. Spoon mixture evenly among egg whites and smooth top. 5. Carefully dust paprika all over yolk mixture, completely covering yolk. 6. Place chive above egg mixture to look like a stem and serve. • • • • Call (504-988-5110) or direct message about appointments or with any questions. • • #bariatriclife #wlsstories #eggs #healthyeating #losingweight #wlscommunity #nola #bariatricsurgeryNola #nsv #protein #october #halloween #wlsjourney #extremeweightloss #weightwatchers #rygb #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #weightlosstransformation #TBC #inspo #TulaneSurgery #Caloriecounting #eatwell #advice #neworleans #obesity #baritastic at New Orleans, Louisiana

Happy Friday! We thought we would send you all off into the weekend with a delicious and easy recipe. We know weekends can be the busiest part of the week, but it is really important to set aside time to get groceries for the week and possibly even do some meal prepping to set yourself up for success. We love these Easy Egg Muffins because they pack a good protein punch and they can also include your favorite non-starchy veggies. Try them out this weekend and have breakfasts prepared and ready to go for the week! Ingredients: 6 Eggs 1 tsp of your cheese of choice per muffin cup Turkey, chicken, or vegetarian sausage for extra protein Fillings of choice like onions, peppers, and mushrooms; broccoli and cheddar; spinach, feta, and tomato Can put salsa in for a flavorful alternative Instructions: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a nonstick muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside. 2. Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Place your choice of mix-ins into each tin. You can customize each muffin cup however you’d like! Pour the egg mixture on top, leaving 1/4 inch space from the top. 3. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean for each cup. Remove from oven. Use a knife to go around the edges and pop out the egg cups. Enjoy! Can freeze and microwave for 1 minute to reheat. • • • • *Recipe from a sassy spoon #losingweight #wlscommunity #nola #bariatricsurgeryNola #nsv #recipe #recipes #inspo #weightlosstransformation #TBC #protein #TulaneSurgery #Caloriecounting #eatwell #advice #neworleans #obesity #baritastic #extremeweightloss #weightwatchers #rygb #weightloss #weightlosssurgiery #gastricsleeve #bypass #wlsintsacrew #wlssupport #wlslife #wlsjourney #healthyfoodies

National Obesity Care Week launches today! #Obesity is chronic, complex and too often misunderstood. Obesity is a disease that is associated with, causes and exacerbates many other conditions and that was finally acknowledged by the medical community in 2013. Research has shown that the most durable therapy for obesity and its associated conditions is weight loss surgery aka bariatric surgery. • • • Call (504-988-5110) or direct message about appointments or with any questions. • #bariatriclife #wlsstories #followyournola #healthyeating #losingweight #wlscommunity #nola #bariatricsurgeryNola #nsv #nolalife #metairie #nolaliving #weightlosstransformation #TBC #itsyournola #TulaneSurgery #Caloriecounting #eatwell #nolaeats #neworleans #obesity #baritastic #extremeweightloss #weightwatchers #rygb #weightloss #weightlosssurgiery at Tulane Medical Center

Hi all! We recently received this inquiry from a current patient on her path to bariatric surgery. With her permission, we wanted to share the response we gave in hopes that it will inspire others as well. If you ever feel like you have “fallen off the wagon”, then this post is for you. We hope you have an amazing weekend and we encourage you to keep reaching for your goals! Our response: Some things you can try include making sure everyone around you knows the path you are on so they are not tempting you with inappropriate options. This includes friends and family members, remembering that plate method is not bariatric specific, it’s a great plan for any and everyone. Also, if you do fall off of the wagon, try to treat it as an isolated incident. It happened, so acknowledge that and forgive it and treat the next meal as a new opportunity to get back on track. Preparing meals is also so important. I know how busy you are, but finding the time to prep or at least plan meals a few days in advance will really help. Even if you can only prep 3 days instead of 7, that’s something right? We also always recommend keeping track of intake. I like grocery lists and food journals, just as long as there is a plan to succeed and some accountability at play. And at the end of the day, revisit the Tulane bariatric handbook and use it as motivation. Reread the label reading page, the plate method page, and the protein pages and reenergize in this process. It is a long term plan. You can check out some healthy recipes too. I like insidekarenskitchen.com and when in doubt, roast food in the oven. Just about all of the proteins on the list and plenty of the nonstarchy veggies are great in the oven and then you have a ‘set it and forget it’ situation which is helpful with time management. Lots of frozen foods are already cut up and portioned for ease. And making large quantities of food Is helpful too. Crock pot recipes, soups and stews, pre cooking chicken and throwing together a salad, etc. are all great ways to think ahead and prepare for success. • • • Call (504-988-5110) or direct message about appointments or with any questions.

#Repost @tuwomensportsmedicine with @get_repost ・・・ It takes 'tude, ladies! So you do you and believe in yourself! Thanks, Venus! #frinspiration ~ ~ ~ We agree with Venus! It is incredibly powerful to believe in yourself. We hear from many patients that deciding to pursue weight loss surgery can be challenging when family/friends don’t understand the journey. It is important in those moments to remember your commitment to improve your health. • • Also we want to make sure you are all aware of the Tulane University Women’s Sports Medicine Program.

It’s #transformationtuesday 😊😊 and we have an update on #RandysTBCjourney !! • • Randy had his first post-operative appointment today (8/28/2018) which is 6 days after his surgery. Randy already feels like he has more energy, and he is sleeping much better. Yesterday Randy drank a little too much too quickly and had some abdominal pain that has now completely resolved. [Although we try to practice drinking and eating slowly before surgery, it is really a learning process after surgery to understand how to eat and drink again with your new stomach.] • • • Otherwise Randy is ecstatic that he is already off 3 of his 4 blood pressure medicines, and he is almost completely off his insulin. He is amazed at how quickly his body is changing. Randy has some bruising around his incisions which is completely normal, but he is not in any pain from his incisions! Randy has lost 5 pounds since surgery!! He will come to clinic again in 3 weeks for another visit and lab check. • • • Thank you to everyone who asked questions, we hope we answered them here. Please let us know what other questions you have for Randy or us! • • • Just like anything else in life, bariatric surgery has ups and downs and we hope you will see that in this journey. We are super excited for Randy and all of our patients who are putting their health first! • • Call (504-988-5110) or direct message about appointments or with any questions • • #rygb #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #weightlossNOLA #fattoffit #fitnola #fitnessfriday #bariatriccommunity #followyournola #weightlosstransformation #TBC #itsyournola #TulaneSurgery #Caloriecounting #eatwell #nolaeats #neworleans #obesity #baritastic #chooseHealth #wls #vsg #rny #sleeve #bariatricsurgeryNewOrleans at Tulane Medical Center

For this week’s #weighinwednesday we thought we’d give our perspective on maintaining a good perspective. A lot of change comes with bariatric surgery - dietary, lifestyle, and attitude, among others. It will help your mission to maintain a positive attitude and to recognize the greatness in the changes you are making. “I have to workout” becomes “I get to use my body for physical activity because I can.” “I have to give up soft drinks” becomes “I get to incorporate water and hydrate myself.” “I have to watch my fat and carb intake” becomes “I get to eat so many types of lean protein and vegetables and nourish my body.” Gratitude is an attitude and we want to remind you that your perspective on this journey is your biggest key to success.

There is no difference is #MelanomaSpecificSurvival for those undergoing immediate completion #lymphnodedissection vs. observation!
