Two years post-gastrectomy, this Chef lives in Italy and is still maintaining a healthy 165 pounds. His new career as a chef has been quite an experience as he talks to people about Eight Bites and where and how he came to be where and how he is now. His blog is quite interesting, filled with inspirational stories and delicious recipes!
For the blog link, please email Amy at RD@lapsf.com.
A cube of sugar is 4 grams of sugar. Obvious foods such as sweets, candies, desserts, cookies and cakes are full of sugar. But these pictures can really help to give perspective on how much sugar is really in these foods.
12 oz can Coca-Cola: 39 grams or (9.75 cubes of sugar)
8 oz glass Welch's Orange Juice: 28 grams or (7 cubes of sugar)
1 bag Skittles: 47 grams or (11.75 cubes of sugar)

I've been asked about the oatmeal Jamba Juice has started to serve. I have to say it might be a better choice than some of their smoothies which can be over 1,000 calories, but their oatmeal still is a bit on the heavy side. It's made with oats, water, and fruit which doesn't sound too bad but with the addition of brown sugar and a large serving, the carbs add up. Here are the nutritionals:
Serving Size: 9.6 oz
4 grams of fat
57 grams of carbohydrate
6 grams of fiber
9 grams of protein
If you really have a taste for oatmeal once and awhile, or are looking for a quick breakfast, we do offer a low calorie, low carb, and high protein oatmeal. We have original, Apple & Cinnamon, and Maple Brown Sugar flavors. Each packet is 100 calories, 1 gram of fat, 7 grams of carb, and 15 grams of protein. These numbers are much lower in comparison!
To order, just call our office or visit the online store!
