Anyone who has been to a public gathering recently will confirm that soda is still very much a public favorite. The amount of sugar in these drinks vary from a lot… to a whole lot. Of greatest concern is the fact that sugary drinks are likely to add pounds to the waist line.Dr. O’Toole explains to his patients that as we age losing 10 to 15 pounds becomes more and more difficult. Patients often ask Dr. O’Toole, the differences between liposuction and weight that is lost through diet and exercise. Dr. O’Toole explains that diet and exercise can not target specific areas like the abdomen, lower back or outer thighs the way that liposuction can. Dr. O’Toole offers both Smart Lipo as well as traditional liposuction through his practice. During an initial consultation he examines patients and helps to determine which method would be most effective based on the patient, their expectations, and their overall body contour. Patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy diet and exercise program following surgery. This of course, will mean if they are consuming sugary drinks and other fattening products they will need to remove them from their diet. According to ABC7 on average, males consume 175,000 total calories from sugar drinks on a given day. That’s equal to a can of soda a day. The CDC report shows 5 percent of Americans consume at least 567,000 total calories from sugar drinks, equal to at least four cans of soda per day.
