As you start getting further and further post-op you start realizing that the quality of your calories really do matter. They make a difference in your quality of life. They make a difference in what your weight is. They make a difference in your complexion. They make a difference in your intestinal flora balance. They make a difference in your mental health. They make a difference in your bone health.
Every one of those things – your quality of life, your weight, your complexion, your intestinal flora balance, your mental health, your bone health – every single one can and will eventually be impacted by sugars, the quantity and/or the type, in your diet.
Eventually – you’ll have to choose what’s more important.
