Bariatric Surgery Nutrition

Nutrition for Bariatric Surgery Patients

For most people weight loss surgery requires a significant change in diet and lifestyle to safely and healthfully reach goals. As this process can be a bit overwhelming, we’ve created several resources to help address all of your nutritional concerns before, during and after surgery.

Between the initial evaluation for weight loss surgery and surgery day, we want you to take the time to become as prepared as possible for the lifestyle modifications and health behaviors that we know equate to a safe and successful long-term weight loss.

We recommend that you begin adapting your current diet pattern and health behaviors when you start your journey towards weight loss surgery to prepare for the changes that will need to be implemented after your procedure.
