STOMACH BOTOX FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THE DIETOLOGIST
Stomach Botox causes a temporary paralysis in the muscles, delaying the emptying of the stomach and creating a feeling of fullness. It is predicted that patients who have botox applied to their stomach will have a decrease in hunger, they will be satisfied with smaller portions and faster. Thus, it was thought that the application of botox to the stomach could be used to patients to lose weight.
Since the main purpose of botox in the stomach is to delay the emptying of the stomach and the feeling of hunger; If we can delay the time of emptying the stomach and extend the time of satiety with diet, we can get the same effect as with botox. For this, we need to know more about the foods we consume.
Consumption of foods rich in fiber is important. They slow down the emptying of the stomach and their viscosity reduces the absorption of glucose. It improves glycemia in people with diabetes and reduces the need for insulin in patients using insulin by reducing the loss of urine and glucose. There are many opinions that soluble fiber can increase these effects. Pectin is part of the soluble fiber group that slows gastric emptying and reduces the glycemic response. It is found in the peel of fruits such as apples, quinces and citrus fruits. The pectin content decreases when the fruits are very ripe, so unripe fruits should be preferred.
Legumes, artichokes, broccoli, peanuts, avocados are high fiber foods.
The consumption of legumes increases the fiber content.
PROTEIN- LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX
Glycemic index is a term used to describe the degree to which consumed foods affect the increase in blood sugar levels. Foods with a high glycemic index affect the increase in blood sugar; Low ones grow slowly. We should prefer foods with a low glycemic index and rich in fiber. Consumption of fiber mixed with water (legumes, fruits and vegetables, etc.) reduces fats and blood sugar levels. Fibers that do not mix with water (cereal husks, rice and brown bran, etc.) mainly create a mass in the intestine, increase the volume of stool and regulate intestinal peristalsis. Vegetables, most fruits and grains, nuts, dairy products are foods with a low glycemic index. Foods with a low glycemic index stay longer in the small intestine and the period of satiety is prolonged. They also affect the normalization of blood glucose levels.
GLYCEMIC INDEX TABLE:
The glycemic index values are as follows:
0-55 Foods with a low glycemic index
56-69 Foods with an average glycemic index
70-100 are high glycemic index foods.
Protein, which is the building block of cells, the smallest unit of the body, is a nutrient that should be included in our diet every day in order to both lose weight and increase the muscle ratio in the human body. Since proteins are emptied later from the stomach, they keep us full for longer. They also help us burn more calories as the body works harder for them to be digested, metabolized and used.
These fibers dissolve in water and become gels. Water-soluble fibers play a role in lowering total blood cholesterol and controlling blood sugar. They slow down the digestive system and help you stay full for longer. Legumes, leafy vegetables, carrots, peas and fruits such as apples and oranges contain water-soluble fibers.
These fibers are structural fibers and make up most of the dietary fiber. Fibers that do not dissolve in water help the digestive system to work regularly, protect the digestive system from diseases and help digestion. Shell grains, walnuts, many vegetables and whole wheat contain this group of fibers.
