The 4th of July is around the corner and for a bariatric patient, it can be a bit intimidating. Between the hamburgers and hot dogs, potatoes chips, and red white and blue cupcakes, the 4th of July (among other holidays) is a bariatric patients nightmare.

It is July in Georgia. That means heat, heat, and more heat! There is no escaping the hot, humid weather that comes with Georgia summers. And the last thing our patients want to do is sabotage their healthy diet with those refreshing, yet sugary beverages.

What many patients don’t realize is that their morning pumpkin spice latte or midday mocha macchiato are just as dangerous to their weight loss efforts as their food choices. Unfortunately, lots of hidden calories and carbohydrates hide in every delicious sip. Don’t “fall” back into old habits that can sabotage your new healthy life!
