“What type of diet will I need to follow before & after Bariatric Surgery?”
This is one of the most common questions of patients considering bariatric surgery. I want to tell all such people that as a qualified dietician I do prescribe customized diets for you based on the type of surgery and unique health factors & lifestyle you follow. Pre and post-surgery bariatric diets are different.
My pre-surgery bariatric diet will emphasize more on high proteins and low carb diet post-surgery diet is divided into several stages, I will devise portion controls at every stage to help you set and follow a new diet routine to maintain your diet.
As your surgery date gets closer, I may put increase the amount of liquid diet. I may also connect with your surgeon if need be and refer to your reports from time to time. It takes about 4 months to return to normal diet however portion control will have to become a part of your every meal habit every day.
If you’re contemplating going under the knife, dietician is one person you have to talk to, to get clarity on various aspects.
