Get the Facts About Added Sugars

One of the many lifestyle changes that bariatric surgery patients must make is to restrict the amount of sugar they eat. This is easier said than done, considering that a significant percentage of food products contain sugars. When you watch this video, you’ll learn how to tell the difference between naturally occurring sugars and added sugars.

Some sugars are naturally found in foods like fruit and dairy products. Added sugars are put into a food product during processing. The problem with added sugars is that they add lots of extra calories, without additional nutrients.

It isn’t always easy to make healthy choices, but Bariatric Care Centers can help by connecting eligible patients to bariatric surgery information. If you’re looking for obesity help and live near Houston, call us today at (713) 339-1353 to discuss weight loss procedures.
