Learn about Creepy Calories and How They Affect Your Weight Loss Surgery Journey

Yikes! The creepy calorie is back at it again- it is the enemy of your weight loss surgery, perilous to your gastric bypass pouch or gastric sleeve, and the true nemesis of all your efforts to lose and maintain weight loss after bariatric surgery. What is this frightening foe I call the creepy calorie? It is the calorie (and calories) that are difficult to count, easy to miscalculate, and all too easy to eat as a weight loss surgery patient. They creep into your diet and add up quicker than you can imagine. The creepy calorie can be anything that you eat at times of un-mindfulness , stress, boredom, celebration and the multitude of other reasons beyond just hunger that many of us eat. However, it can also be things you eat on a daily basis that you might not have thought of as getting in your way before. Those foods that go down so easily that they don t even register any full feeling, so you can get a lot of those creepy calories in a short amount of time and no lasting satisfaction to show for it- leaving you wondering why weight management is so difficult. Darn creepers!

Goodbye Bari-Cat-Trics

Last week the offices of William A. Graber, MD, PC lost a very dear animal friend, Bari-Cat-Trics. Bari passed away peacefully with a very dear friend close by, as many of us had him in our thoughts. For those of you that didn t know, Bari was our office cat from the old Utica office. He was rescued by us shortly after birth 5 years ago and lived the life of a furry little prince ever since. Please read this reprint from a story written about Bari last year. We would like to acknowledge and thank the many staff members that were involved very directly in the care of Bari throughout his entire life- you helped make his life so rich, as he did in turn for many of us in his short time. Here is one of the last pictures taken of Bari, it has affectionately been named "Bari's last ride" by the photographer.
