Three times a year FoodCoach.Me hosts a 28 Day “Focus” Challenge for WLS Patients…and that time has come again!

It seems certain times of the year feel a little more “dull” than others and are often the culprit months of losing focus and falling into old habits. February, to me, is one of them.

The shimmer of the holidays has long faded away (unless your Christmas lights have yet to come down) but Spring and all of it’s freshness seems far off in the distance.

Valentine’s day doens’t seem like a difficult holiday but in my 8.5 years of being a bariatric dietitian, the candy of Valentine’s day has sent many a patient off course from their January goals.

It seems to me February is an important time to re-find your focus.

So what is the challenge?

First, any of the visions you have of the Biggest Loser or a water drinking challenge or ab crunching challenge should be put aside for the moment.

Second, WLS patients are in a different place than non-surgical patients. This is a ‘focus’ challenge specific to patients who have had (or will be having) a weight loss surgery procedure and need guidance and information that fits their situation.

Yes, every program is different. FoodCoach.Me and all the videos, meal plans and challenges are meant to be encouragement, inspiration and positive information not specific medical advice.


The challenge is this:

28 Day Focus Challenge for Weight Loss Surgery Patients | FoodCoach.Me

Our theme for this challenge is “triggers” and together we will identify what events lead up towards our food decisions, for better or for worse.

Weekly meal plans (two options, one with ‘dinner only’ and room for your personalization on breakfast and lunch) or a ‘full meal plan’ that is completed for you. This include the grocery shopping list and all recipes too!

Nutrition guides for the moments that came up and the meal plan didn’t work out. Such as a quick reference dining out guide, batch cooking meal ideas and ‘no cook’ meal ideas.

Exercise videos and suggested videos based on your exercise level preference. Anything from 10 minute higher intensity exercises you can do at home to walking videos or strength exercises you can do in a chair.

Food journal information – the best way to keep one and the standard recommendations for what percentage of protein, carbs and fat you should aim for.

Live online check in’s via Facebook events. We’ll talk about TRIGGERS (our focus for this challenge) as well as set goals for the week on what habits we want to maintain, what habits we want to focus on and how are going to make self care a priority for our week.

The option to be paired up with an accountability partner to touch base with over email. You can elect to be paired based on which surgery or how far out you are from surgery.

  1. Hi, I am unable to get signed up. I don’t know if it is because I screwed up when I joined foodcoach.me. I have an ‘order’ that is still in processing status, but also another order that has been verified and approved. Who can I contact to get the pending order deleted and the ability to sign up for the challenge? Thank you!
