When you have weight loss surgery, you make some pretty significant changes in the way you eat and the way that you cook. And no one here at the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence is saying that those are easy changes to make. But, at the same time, we’ll tell you that, while they’re not easy changes, they can still be fun and exciting. Of course, you don’t have to just take our word for it.
Chef Woody Duncan had weight loss surgery a number of years ago and has, since then, become a bit of a local cooking celebrity around here at the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence.
No stranger to the taste of butter and dishes high in carbohydrates and sugar, Chef Woody began his ventures into healthier cooking not for himself but for his wife after she had bariatric surgery. Woody admits that he was cooking two different dishes for quite awhile before he realized that he wanted to take similar steps toward a healthier, fuller lifestyle, too.
After his own surgery, Woody’s become an avid biker and has started his own food blog, chefwoody.com. Full of recipes and cooking tips, this blog is an excellent place for patients who’ve recently had weight loss surgery and for people who just want to be more conscientious about what they’re eating.
So check out his site and see for yourself that bariatric surgery doesn’t mean you have to give up food. It just means you’ll need to think about it in a new way. Woody’s has been able to successfully redefine his passion for cooking and food, and we know that you can, too!
