Making Life Your New Playground
noun - someone having had weight loss surgery and is now hitting the pavement and participating in life with a new found love for physical activity.
Its time to unleash that inner athlete! You have a new body and a new life ahead of you. Using the surgery as a ‘tool’ to shed the weight, has given you access to a whole new world of possibilities. Did you ever think you would be able to run a marathon, ride a century, or complete an Ironman? Well, your day has come and now’s your chance!
BariAthletes was created by Lea Crosetti, RD to empower you in fulfilling those dreams. We design cutting edge nutrition programs that work for YOU and YOUR NEW BODY. Having a stomach a third of the size of typical athletes requires a very specific strategy to meet your specific nutritional needs. We use strategies so that bariathletes become more metabolically efficient at burning fat as fuel, ultimately eliminating the need to carb load. This method assures that bariathletes get the nutrition they need without any dumping syndrome or other forms of GI distress.
More and more studies are showing that lifestyle change is essential for keeping the weight off after surgery, and BariAthletes is here to support you! So here’s to making life your new playground. Play hard and have fun!
