Ohio is among the top ten states in the U.S. for adults with obesity.
Dr. Benjamin Biteman has worked in the Mercy Health St. Joseph Surgical Weight Loss Center for seven years.
Dr. Biteman is a general and bariatric surgeon at St. Joe’s Weight Loss Center.
He shared some advice he gives ahead of the holidays to patients in the Weight Loss Center working on portion control and healthy eating habits.
“One of the most important things to remember for Thanksgiving dinner is portion control,” he said. “You don’t want to skip meals in anticipation of the Thanksgiving dinner.”
Dr. Biteman said to focus on filling your plate with reasonably sized portions.
He said skipping meals on Thursday can actually cause you to overindulge at dinner.
Dr. Biteman said consistently exercising also helps weight maintenance.
“Stretch your legs, take a walk around the mall window-shopping for twenty to thirty minutes a day; resistance training and exercise per day can do a lot for your metabolism,” he said. “There’s also help in numbers. Find a workout buddy or an affordable personal trainer to motivate you to keep working out.”
