Dietician doesn't like that my Bariatricpal multi's have 3g of sugar



Recommended Posts

My dietician is great and has helped me, though I privately question if she's just a little stricter than necessary when it comes to sugar grams. She's fairly fixated on the idea that things should contain 1 gram or less of sugar.

When I showed her a printout of the nutrition label on the Bariatricpal multi's I ordered, she told me they have too much sugar. She actually told me I'll have to replace them with another option that has less sugar. My jaw honestly fell open a bit. I was agreeable so as not to offend her, but I just think she's being unnecessarily strict.

The Bariatricpal multi's meet or exceed (often exceed) the specific nutritional values specified by my program, and since I purchased a year's supply all at once, their price is the best. I'm going to continue taking them.

I know my dietician is far more knowledgeable than I am but, sorry, 2 little extra grams of sugar is just not a big deal to me.

Let's just say that there are dietitians and dietitians just as there are surgeons and surgeons.

I'm sorry but this obsession with sugar and carbs is just ridiculous and it's sad that even professionals are not immune to the anti-carb propaganda.

that's a great way of putting it!

I personally wouldn't worry about the extra two grams, either. She's obsessively restrictive, in my opinion. It's not like it's a bowl of ice cream! I probably shouldn't say this because I often preach that people need to stick to their plan, but my last dietititian (who just recently left - haven't met her replacement yet) was really into "intuitive eating" and hated the fact that I count calories. HATED it. I finally just quit letting it come up in conversation. I'd smile and nod. I know intuitive eating works for some people, but I know myself - I'd intuitively eat my way back up to 300 lbs again if I didn't constantly monitor my calorie intake (and it's not like I punish myself if I go over some days - that's life - but overall, there's a certain level that I try to average). That's worked for me. I'm not going to give up something that's worked for me.

your dietititian reminds me of people who fret because their Vitamin has 20 calories in it. ARRRGGH. Just walk from your bedroom to your living room and you'll probably burn that off...

Ah yes, I was on the fence as well but some things simply shouldn't be left uncommented.

4 months out and mine won’t allow me a low carb tortilla yet

That sounds unreasonable. By that point I'd like to at least have one fajita or taco...?

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
