#46 Bariatric Nutrition Q & A: Your Questions Answered

May 05, 2021

Jenna asked, “Does the tea I drink need to be decaf?” And Shelly wants to know, “When can I start drinking diet soda again?” Today, we’ll answer your burning questions.

Hi, I’m registered dietitian nutritionist Dr. Susan Mitchell. You’re listening to the Bariatric Surgery Success podcast episode number 46. Most of my career I’ve worked in some type of media, particularly radio where I did morning drive nutrition spots for over 18 years. That’s what lead me to start podcasting and ultimately to you. I created Bariatric Surgery Success to provide you with life-changing information based on science along with simple strategies and tools to help you be successful in your transformation and your entire journey. So happy you’ve connected with me. You’re in the right place and I’m glad you’re listening.

I want to give a shout out and say thank you this week to Christine for her comment on Facebook. She said: “I love this podcast, it’s quick yet packed full of information.” Christine, my goal is to not waste your time and get right to it with information you can use. Glad you like the short format too.

This week joining me on the podcast is bariatric dietitian Isabel Maples. If you’re in the private facebook group, you may have seen her comments as she shares her expertise. Isabel is a registered dietitian and bariatric coordinator with Fauquier Health in Warrenton Virginia. She helps her patients navigate the weight loss surgery process to maximize success. Her focus is on making food fun again by relearning body cues for hunger/satiety, taming trigger foods, and discovering the joy of movement.
