A Word A Day: Bariatrics

July 18, 2015

The week that passed was (for lack of a better word) hell, but I’ve accepted that fact even before I faced it (“acceptance is key”, says my boss), it’s just that I didn’t expect that I had to vomit 2 presentation decks and a five-week TV plan in less than a week! Anyway, it’s all done and nothing comes greater than the feeling of actually accomplishing all of that when I thought I wouldn’t. I mean, I couldn’t figure out how I could possibly get through with it in just three days. So as you may have guessed, I wasn’t able to stock up photos for content this week but thank God for blog series’ I’ve started a few months back, I’ll still be able to publish something today!

It has also been a while since I updated this section so I thought of getting a new word for today, which happens to be: Bariatrics.

1. So Wikipedia says that Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity. Oops. That word mentioned. Oh my gosh, I seriously need to watch my weight! I’m so tired of being aware that I need to and telling myself that I’ll stop eating a lot and start sweating but I’m still here, fatter than ever. You know that feeling of being depressed about something yet finding it still laugh-able?

2. There’s this Aspire Assist – a weight loss program for people with obesity. It works by reducing the number of calories that are absorbed by the body. Unlike many other weight loss procedures, it’s minimally-invasive and reversible. Well I can’t picture that out in my head but I do hope I can get back to my old self without having to go through with these complex programs. Get yo’ ass working right now, Yshy!

3. So upon reading further, I found out that there’s surgery involved, and there are eating techniques that need to be considered before and after the surgery. Of course, I won’t go through the whole diet plan but I came across the long-term plan and read that there’s this term “trigger foods”  which includes the following:

  • Carbonated beverages
  • Soft “doughy” bread
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Tough, dry, red meat
  • Nuts
  • Popcorn
  • Other fibrous foods
  • Caffeine in moderation

Oh my that’s too bad. Surprisingly, fruit juices should be eliminated from the diet forever!

4. There are support groups for people who are suffering from bariatrics, and I believe that they are really helpful. The fact that you know that there are people who believe that you can get through is something that one can take inspiration from.

    Taking into account that you had to accomplish a five-week tv plan for one week makes me think that you are prolly in media field same as I once was? :) If yes, that’s great. Cheers! Media is such a fast-paced world with a lot of quick turns. Every time I visit your blog, I see and learn something and new, so incredibly inspiring. :)

      Oh yes, Raya! I work for a media agency, and you said it well. Haha! It is indeed fast-paced and you’ll need a lot of back massages! Lol.

      Anyway, thank you for the nice words! It’s really sweet of you! Kisses!
