Nuestra Filosofía Nutricional

At OCC we have dedicated a decade and a half to helping patients reach their ideal weight through bariatric surgery. We’ve used industry-leading science to conduct over 25,000 successful surgeries in Tijuana, and we’ve learned a lot. This experience has resulted in deepening our understanding of obesity and healthy weight loss. It would seem that dramatic weight-loss many times does not result in a healthier individual.

Vivimos en un mundo donde el sobrepeso y la obesidad son la “nueva normalidad” y ahora se los considera una epidemia global que amenaza nuestra propia existencia. Los seres humanos nunca han producido más alimentos en la historia del mundo. ¿Podría esto explicar la epidemia? ¿Cómo puede haber tanta comida y, sin embargo, las principales enfermedades que afligen al mundo son la obesidad y la desnutrición, muchas veces coexistiendo en el mismo individuo?

La ciencia moderna ahora entiende que tener sobrepeso u obesidad es, de hecho, un estado de desnutrición. En otras palabras, los alimentos ricos en calorías carecen de micronutrientes esenciales necesarios para mantener la salud.

Industrialized food processing produces attractive marketable and often long shelf-life food products void of micronutrients that are essential for health. This condition creates hunger at a cellular level that perpetuates the cycle. We are literally starving ourselves fat! Fat in turn raises havoc in our metabolic balance creating diseases adding insult to injury through diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

La obesidad y la diabetes siguen aumentando en todo el mundo. Nuestros alimentos se cultivan en suelos agotados en nutrientes, los animales se engordan artificialmente en corrales de engorde, la producción masiva de granos de OGM subsidiados (Organismos Genéticamente Modificados) incluyen maíz, soja y trigo, comprados con centavos de dólar para fabricar alimentos procesados ​​que resultan en una abundancia comida barata sin nutrientes. Estudios recientes han confirmado que ninguno de los programas enfocados en mejores hábitos y nutrición ha funcionado a nivel mundial. El futuro parece sombrío.

"No se puede hacer que un individuo recupere la salud de hambre, ¡hay que alimentarlo!"

Weight-loss and metabolic health depend on your eating choices. Nutrients are not limited to a specific mechanism in the body but rather they come to the fore as the fundamental way to heal the body. While each person may choose to have bariatric surgery with different health objectives in mind, nutrition is at the core for long term success. At OCC we are committed to optimizing cellular health through nutrient-rich food and supplements, especially when the volume of food that the stomach can hold is significantly reduced, and in doing so, you will foster your body’s natural ability to repair itself. At the end of the day, the weight-loss journey is a healing process.

Modern research also agrees that most of the chronic and degenerative diseases have a direct relationship with what we eat and how we nourish our bodies. It has also shown that chronic diseases related to malnutrition can be reversed! We believe that Hippocrates’ famous quote: “Let food be your Medicine” is full of wisdom, but unfortunately, he didn’t count on the industry’s ability to screw up the meaning of food! Major medical and nutritional societies around the world now agree that ALL patients undergoing weight loss (with or without surgery) and those who follow restrictive diets should avoid carbohydrates and toxins and replenish nutrients through nutrient-dense food and supplements.

Plan de nutrición integral de OCC

El programa de educación médica y nutricional integral de OCC es el resultado de las lecciones extraídas de los viajes de nuestros pacientes, nuestra propia experiencia como proveedores de salud y la experiencia obtenida de la aplicación de terapias médicas y nutricionales basadas en la evidencia.

Nuestros cuerpos prosperan con la nutrición y requieren micronutrientes esenciales para protegerse de las enfermedades y mantener la salud.

The OCC comprehensive medical and nutritional education program is the result of the lessons gleaned from our patients’ journeys, our own experience as an international team of health providers, and the experience gained from the application of evidence-based medical and nutrition therapies. The OCC’s nutritional program has three specific pillars of intervention which specifically target the nutritional imbalances associated with essential body functions that are the underlying cause of disease and health conditions. These pillars consist of:

De-Carb

Dietas ricas en azúcar are detrimental to health. Sugar is found naturally in many foods and it is added to most processed foods. It is associated with conditions such as high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, elevated triglycerides, premature aging, obesity, diabetes, PCOS, and high blood pressure. This first stage will make it easy to eliminate the various sugars and carbohydrates available and will guide you to healthier options.

Desintoxicación

The exposure to toxins disrupts not only human weight control systems but a range of physiological problems that contribute to today’s chronic diseases. Throughout life, we gradually accumulate hundreds of chemicals that become toxicants (toxins) in our bodies. Our health depends not only on the level of exposure but on how well we can eliminate them. Many organs can be affected by a high toxic load. To mention a few: the liver, the microbiome (known as gut bacteria which are the first line of immune defense and hormonal modulation), the skin, the brain, the lungs, and the kidneys. During this stage, we make sure to provide, in a practical and simple way, key nutrients from foods and supplements that will support detoxification, prevent oxidation, and help reduce chronic inflammation.

Reponer

Longevity, wellbeing, and the state of health are inextricably dependent on gut-health and cellular nutrition. A great many systemic conditions have a gastrointestinal dysfunction component. By following our nutrition principles, the digested food will replenish nutrients that will contribute to repairing the digestive system, repopulate the gut with good bacteria, and optimize the absorption of nutrients. Therefore, the food you eat and the supplements you’ll take will provide the necessary elements for cell function and balance. The benefits of this deep approach are not only to reduce symptoms such as joint pain, muscular and cognitive fatigue, lack of energy, behavioral problems, headaches or the obvious stomach and intestinal pain but it will also regulate the body’s ability to get rid of excess weight and reduce chronic inflammation -the leading route of most chronic and degenerative diseases.

At the core of the OCC, the program is the liver’s and microbiome’s health, the metabolic response, and the hormonal balance needed to accelerate weight -loss and gain health. The foundation of our approach is to provide the necessary tools to support your body’s own natural ability to get back to health!

Nutrición después de su cirugía bariátrica

En lo inmediato etapa postoperatoria, the use of specific nutrients for wound healing have demonstrated a decrease in wound complication risks and improve the overall experience. The post-op nutritional plan will help you meet the hydration needs and the nutritional demands for adequate recovery. Right after the recovery process and during the extreme weight-loss stage we will ask you not to make food choices based on overall weight but to track body fat and to be mindful about toxic-free and low-carb food and supplements. This change of mindset along with the surgical restriction will create a healthy environment that will empower you to make long-lasting lifestyle changes. As Albert Einstein once said, “insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”. Thus, this is the time to learn food-related skills and the attitude and the ability to make healthier choices!

Después de la pérdida de peso o la cirugía metabólica, muchas condiciones comórbidas relacionadas con la obesidad pueden resolverse o mejorar y la mayor parte del peso se perderá. Nuestro objetivo es ayudarlo a aprender a utilizar la cirugía como una herramienta para realizar cambios dietéticos importantes y duraderos que mejorarán su calidad de vida en los próximos años.
