Postoperative Diet Guide

Now that you’ve had weight-loss surgery, you’ve taken a big step towards looking good, feeling good and getting healthy. However, before you can shed the pounds you’ll need to recover from your surgery and familiarize yourself with your new diet.

After receiving gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy surgery, you’ll now feel full after eating less due to the reduced size of your stomach. We recommend a specific diet regimen that can help you heal after surgery. This diet will start while you’re in the hospital and continue for several weeks.

It’s important to follow the diet recommendations, as diverting from this plan can cause negative side effects such as vomiting, nausea, hair loss, depression, or even weight gain.
