Weight Loss Surgery Cards - Are You Ready to Get "Bariatric"?

A “Bariatric Restaurant Card” is a card the size of a business card, usually laminated, provided to post-bariatric patients by surgeons. The card usually says:

"The person who presents this card has had a bariatric surgery which has permanently reduced their stomach capacity. Therefore… It is greatly appreciated if you would allow them to order from the children’s menu or to purchase half-sized adult entrees. Thank you for your consideration."

Bariatric surgery is becoming a more popular approach to managing obesity, with hundreds of thousands of Americans now electing to have the procedure each year. The surgery involves either the use of a medical device called a gastric band, which reduces the size of the stomach, the removal of part of the stomach, or the rerouting of the small intestines to a pouch in the stomach (known as gastric bypass surgery). Bariatric surgery may seem like an extreme method to dealing with obesity, but indications are that it works.

The Ultimate Travel Fitness Plan

Traveling is fun, but when it comes to traveling for work it's a different story.

Most people try to keep their routines the same when they travel. If you like to workout while working in the office or at home it's easy to stay in your routine, but on the road things can be challenging.

Working out when traveling is not easy. Some hotels offer gyms and it can be enough to hit the gym for a quick run or a short weight exercise, but most of the time when you're on the road you need to find time to get food for the three meals each day while planning your meetings and events. There is little time to head down the gym.

Plus there is the issue of being tired from the long days of working on the road. Who wants to workout after a long day of meetings?

For those looking to sidestep these issues of working out on the road here are tips for creating your own ultimate travel fitness plan.
