While bariatric surgery will result in weight loss, another crucial part of the process is ensuring you get your nutrition right before and after surgery. After surgery your food intake will be much smaller and if you do not plan your intake properly to ensure you are eating from all the food groups as well as develop good eating habits, it can not only affect your health but also impact your weight loss and long-term weight maintenance.
To help you during the process, it's essential to work with a bariatric dietitian. Not only will they have the experience and knowledge to work through the initial pre & post surgery dietary changes with you but also will work with you to help you get good nutrition long-term post surgery.
