Move It Or Lose It

Many of Now’s patients are eating more so that they are compelling themselves to death and cannot even stand. Now would definitely recommend everyone get moving so that they never wind up.

Easy Does It

Nowadays, his patients are of a lazy type and they, even feel hard to do a simple walk or stroll. It is often a challenge, but he still expects them to try.

Psych Yourself In

The psychological factors that are related to weight and obesity are significant, and by addressing those, he says it will be nearly impossible to make the necessary changes to the workout routine that will result in lasting changes to your life.

Dr. Nowzaradan’s Exercise Routine

The thing he wants his patients and everyone to do is to move their bodies every day. Do whatever you can. your household activities can help you to stay fit. Many of his patients cannot even stand straight, but he wants them to move their arms and legs, and most importantly, keep trying to stand and walk.

He goes to the gym.

Diet plan

Dr. Nowzaradan’s Pre-Surgery Diet is custom-tailored to each of his patients based on factors such as current weight, goal weight, age, gender, and other medical conditions. His general plan includes eating 800-1,200 calories per day that come from natural foods which are high in protein and low in fat and carbs. The basic diet includes about 6-7 oz.  men will have 6-8 oz. of protein,  and women 4-6 oz. Healthy people should eat 20-35 grams of fiber, and the fats should come from healthy sources, for instance, fish and flaxseed.  He avoids Trans fats and sodium should be kept under 2300 mg.

Dr. Nowzaradan does not approve of snacks. He also eats so few calories that also involves practicing eating smaller meals, something bariatric surgery patients will have to do post-operation anyway.

No Junk

His diet is based on eating whole foods found in nature, not pre-packaged. foods that are chemical-laden junk that comes out of a colorful bag are allowed but junks foods are not allowed. He suggests a 3-oz. serving of meat and a healthy helping of vegetables. The protein and fiber help you feel fuller for longer so it is important.
