Ok, let’s be real. There’s also a to-do list that’s way too long coupled with too little sleep, too many commitments, very little down time, food everywhere you turn and what did I leave out? It’s a recipe for feeling hangry and overwhelmed. Are you with me? Let’s kick that hangry feeling to the curb and stay on track the entire month of December. I have five tips to help you stay on track now and go into the New Year feeling strong.Hi, I’m registered dietitian nutritionist Dr. Susan Mitchell. You’re listening to the Bariatric Surgery Success podcast episode number 75. Most of my career I’ve worked in some type of media, particularly radio where I did morning drive nutrition spots for over 18 years. That’s what lead me to start podcasting and ultimately to you. I created Bariatric Surgery Success to provide you with life-changing information based on science along with simple strategies and tools to help you be successful in your transformation and your entire journey. So happy you’ve connected with me. You’re in the right place and I’m glad you’re listening.A fresh new year is just around the corner. Be sure and sign up for the Breaking Down Nutrition newsletter. It’s a quick way to find out first what’s going on in bariatric nutrition from new freebies, upcoming courses, tips, product discounts and the latest podcast episode. It’s super easy to sign up on my home page https://www.breakingdownnutrition.com (https://www.breakingdownnutrition.com)   Liz asked me how to stay on track. I’m sharing from a nutrition and food viewpoint and I’ll have Dr. Connie bring tips from a mental health perspective to kick off your new year in January. So Liz, the first tip for staying on track is to stop that hangry feeling before it gets a hold of you. You know the word hangry. It means you're hungry and angry and they go together. You’re hungry and start to feel stressed, overwhelmed and angry or you’re angry and then remember you haven’t eaten all day or very little. This not-so-tasty recipe for hangry is a disaster for all of your hard work and best efforts. The key: we can’t let ourselves (and I count myself here too) get hungry, overly tired or angry.Because there’s so much to do, get your shopping done now…early this month. Make a mug of tea (decaf, if you’re feeling stressed), stay in your pj’s and shop online if the thought of fighting crowds sends you to the fridge for a snack. After the holidays, shop year round and put gifts away for those ‘need a gift at the last minute’ moments and to take the stress out of holiday shopping where you feel the need to buy everything for everyone in a couple of weeks. Maybe you cut back on gifts and do more things together making new memories. Don’t miss this one…come close and listen. What about a gift for you? You heard me. You? What brings you joy? Is it taking your dog for a long quiet walk?

I read all the emails.  Probiotics are bacteria that offer a health benefit to your body. Bacteria can be a good thing as probiotics may help prevent or treat certain illnesses. It’s no wonder probiotics are often nicknamed “the good bacteria”! Why does this matter to you? Your gastrointestinal tract or GI tract contains many species of bacteria that make up what’s known as the intestinal flora. It’s a balancing act going on in the GI tract between good and bad bacteria. Think of it this way. Medications, diseases, even some environmental issues can alter this balance. This flora can “get out of whack” when you take antibiotics or other medications, and can be effected by various illness. Diarrhea is one of the most common symptoms that reveals something abnormal is going on. This is where probiotics may be helpful. Certain probiotic strains may help digestive health, positively influence cardiovascular risk factors, reduce inflammation, support your immune system, and even help fight depression and anxiety.Probiotics are live bacteria that occur naturally in foods that you can include in your daily diet such as yogurt, kefir, kombucha, tempeh, kimchi, sauerkraut, sourdough bread, even pickles and traditional buttermilk. These different foods provide a variety of probiotic bacteria strains in modest amounts and are beneficial to the intestinal flora. Probiotics can also be purchased as supplements and when taken in larger amounts or doses are considered a therapeutic treatment more like a medication. But not all probiotics survive and thrive. What does that mean? For you to derive health benefits, these good bacteria must survive the manufacturing process and storage along with the trip through the gastrointestinal tract once you take them.
