Have you ever wondered where the term BARIATRIC came from? The term bariatrics was coined around 1965 from the Greek root bar- ("weight" as in barometer), suffix -iatr ("treatment," as in pediatrics), and suffix -ic ("pertaining to"). Bariatric encompasses dieting, exercise and behavioral therapy approaches to weight loss, as well as pharmacotherapy and surgery. The term is also used in the medical field as somewhat of a euphemism to refer to people of larger sizes without regard to their participation in any treatment specific to weight loss, such as medical supply catalogs featuring larger hospital gowns and hospital beds referred to as "bariatric."

#Bariatric surgery in patients age 60 and older is safe and effective, producing results comparable to those seen in younger adults, according to researchers from the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, PA, who presented their findings at Obesity Week 2017, the largest international event focused on the basic science, clinical application and prevention and treatment of obesity. Khalili Center has performed weight loss surgery on many patients over the age of 60 and even over the age of 70.

These include coronary heart disease (CHD), congestive heart failure (CHF), stroke, and kidney disease.

Sushi is great for bariatric patients because fish is an optimal nutrient rich protein abundant in omega-3’s and comes in perfect bite-size pieces! True to bariatric principles rolls made without added rice are best! Note- only consume after the initial bariatric surgery 6 week recovery period since many sushi varieties are served raw and that can pose a risk for bacteria ingestion.

DIABETES SUPERFOODS These food suggestions are from the American Diabetes Association:
BEANS
Kidney, pinto, navy, or black beans are packed with vitamins and minerals such as magnesium and potassium. They are very high in fiber too. Beans do contain carbohydrates, but ½ cup also provides as much protein as an ounce of meat without the saturated fat. To save time you can use canned beans, but be sure to drain and rinse them to get rid of as much added salt as possible.
DARK GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES
Spinach, collards, and kale are dark green leafy vegetables packed with vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, C, E, and K, iron, calcium and potassium. These powerhouse foods are low in calories and carbohydrates too. Try adding dark leafy vegetables to salads, soups and stews.
CITRUS FRUITS
Grapefruits, oranges, lemons and limes or pick your favorites to get part of your daily dose of fiber, vitamin C, folate and potassium.
SWEET POTATOES
A starchy vegetable packed full of vitamin A and fiber. They are also a good source of vitamin C and potassium. Craving something sweet? Try a sweet potato in place of a regular potato and sprinkle cinnamon on top.
BERRIES
Which are your favorites: blueberries, strawberries or another variety? Regardless, they are all packed with antioxidants, vitamins and fiber. Berries can be a great option to satisfy your sweet tooth and they provide an added benefit of vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese, potassium and fiber.
TOMATOES
The good news is that no matter how you like your tomatoes, pureed, raw, or in a sauce, you’re eating vital nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin E and potassium.
FISH HIGH IN OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS
Omega-3 fats may help to reduce the risk of heart disease and inflammation. Fish high in these healthy fats are sometimes referred to as "fatty fish." Salmon is well known in this group. Other fish high in omega-3 are herring, sardines, mackerel, trout, and albacore tuna. Choose fish that is broiled, baked or grilled to avoid the carbohydrate and extra calories that would be in fish that is breaded and fried. The American Diabetes Association Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes 2017 recommends eating fish (mainly fatty fish) twice per week for people with diabetes.
Nuts
An ounce of nuts can go a long way in getting key healthy fats along with helping to manage hunger. In addition, they offer magnesium and fiber. Some nuts and seeds, such as walnuts and flax seeds, are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Whole Grains
It’s the whole grain you’re after. The first ingredient on the label should have the word “whole” in it. Whole grains are rich in vitamins and minerals like magnesium, B vitamins, chromium, iron and folate. They are a great source of fiber too. Some examples of whole grains are whole oats, quinoa, whole grain barley and farro.
Milk and Yogurt
You may have heard that milk and yogurt can help build strong bones and teeth. In addition to calcium, many milk and yogurt products are a fortified to make them a good source of vitamin D. More research is emerging on the connection between vitamin D and good health. Milk and yogurt do contain carbohydrate that will be a factor in meal planning when you have diabetes. Look for yogurt products that are lower in fat and added sugar.
