    NurseMichael got a reaction from ARMoma45 in HIIT or normal exercise   
    HIIT is great and blows away any steady state cardio. What type of HIIT is up to you as there are many.
    Personal opinion is that you absolutely should incorporate weights into your training. Building muscle is key as we loose body fat.
    Good luck!

    NurseMichael got a reaction from Hop_Scotch in I need help I want to know what Exercise I can do to lose my stomach   
    So here is the question. Is the remaining belly adipose fat tissue or left over skin. If its skin....no amount of exercise will remove it...you may need plastic surgery. If its still fat thats remaining...some of my colleagues are a little mistaken. A flat belly starts in the kitchen. You can do all the situps and crunches you want, and trust me, you will build up an amazing six pack belly, but it will be covered by that layer of fat. You have to eat the right foods and do general whole body exercise to remove fat. There is no such thing as targeted fat loss, i dont care what you tube video or "fitness expert" you see out there.

    Make sure your diet is right and increase your exercise, and that belly will slowly dwindle (and keep up the crunches and situps).

    NurseMichael got a reaction from mnion.mniom in Liquid diet   
    I have found that many things on the liquid diet (protein shakes, Jello, sugar free ice pops) all ran on sweet side of things, which got old pretty quick. I found that chicken broth was a lifesaver. A little salty treat for "dinner". Try to break up the sweet and salty and it should help you out.
    Its temporary and you will get through it. Just remember why you are doing this.

    NurseMichael got a reaction from Rckc270 in New YouTube Show - Bariatric Strong   
    Hey everyone,
    So im trying out a new endeavor. I have created a new YouTube channel dedicated to people like us: Baritric surgery patients who now want to be more athletic.
    What should i do for a workout? What should I eat for performance? What foods fuel muscle growth? Questions like these and more are what I will try to answer through some simple little videos. Its not bout money or sponsors, its about creating a bariatric fitness community.
    I only ask that you guys watch, comment, and maybe give me some suggestions on topics to talk about for future episodes. No one seems to be able to give us good answers on this stuff so I figured I should seek them out myself.
    You can check out episode 1 here - https://youtu.be/2NvPVKE_kv0 - and feel free to subscribe to you know when new episodes come out.
    and as always...stay Baritric Strong!
