Hey guys. I was wondering, if there was a podcast that focused on Bariatric fitness and nutrition once we get to maintenance, would anybody listen? I feel like trainers and nutritionists that understand caloric needs for a Bariatric patient who wants to excel at physical fitness are hard to come by.

So I had the idea of starting up a podcast to talk about it. A little info, some guests, discuss some research, whatever. What do you guys think?

Great idea! I would totally listen, and wold love to contribute too. I’m 4.5 years post-RNY and ran my first marathon yesterday. I try to stay engaged with the patient group from my surgeon, to both give and receive support, but there’s no one else like me there and most are in a very different part of their journey. The Bariatrics specialists haven’t been any help in my journey since I hit my goal weight, and the non-Bariatrics nutritionists and trainers haven’t had much idea what to do with me either. PM me if you want to talk more.

We will definitely talk. I’m gonna need guests to have on the podcast as well!

I'm a huge podcast junky and would love to add another to my playlist. There are a few good WLS podcasts already but none that focus on fitness and nutrition. You might run out of topics after a while since it's a super niche topic, but it's a great idea.

Yes, I would listen. I think your idea would be fantastic.

I don’t see your idea as a niche. Many baraiathletes and people in maintenance don’t use this site. Most sites are geared toward weight loss mode. Not much support and info for maintaining (google bariathletes)

Things your post made me think about. I’m five years out and I distance run and lift

  • I would love to see videos or photos of other people’s meal prep/food plan, what a day of food looks like and how long does it take to get that meal in. How to problem solve eating if you have good surgery restriction – Recipes
  • Life after Maintaining
  • Photos - Lifting/running/sports/training/recovery/competition events
  • how to begin with fitness and build up. Exercise with mobility issues. Goals developing a plan
  • Runners - Training, carb loading and pre race tapper. Hydration - there is no way I can gulp from cups handed out on routes.
  • product reviews
  • Personal fitness stories with photos of progress, results or competitcans they were involved in.

@Diana_in_Philly She fences at a national level and is ranked 23rd among women age 50-59 in the United States. I started fencing after I lost the weight.

Just ideas I googled.

The woman below is well known and a bit over enthusiastic. But why not.

I don't listen to many podcasts (mostly due to time), but I'd be interested. Personally, I had a very hard time finding a sports dietician who understood my issues as a bariatric patient and the issues I was grappling with in terms of building muscle and replacing fat. The biggest scare for me was having to increase my carb count in a day because I was literally cannibalizing muscle by not eating enough carbs with the working out I was doing.

I'd be interested to see where this goes.

This is a great idea because as you know to a large extent the data do not exist. At least, not for younger and/or more able-bodied people.
