Long Term Post Operative Nutritional Guidelines
  • Gradual increment from mechanically altered soft diet to normal diet is very vital.
  • The bariatric soft diet provides foods whose texture is modified, requiring minimal chewing, and which passes easily from the gastric pouch created. After this the person comes to a normal low fat, high protein diet.
  • After the surgery is being performed patients are advised to avoid 5 “S” i.e. Sugar, Spirits, Straw, Soda and Smoking, until the desired weight loss is achieved. Sugar and spirits are avoided to prevent dumping and also to aid weight loss. Straw and soda may cause bloating and patients may suffer with abdominal discomfort, pain or feeling of fullness. Smoking is prohibited for good respiratory functions.
  • Eating Behaviors : Modifications of eating behaviors is imperative to post operative success and to avoid complications.
    • Eat only at regular intervals– this normally means three small meals a day along with two small snacks.
    • Chew well and eat slowly – patients are advised to chew the food to a liquid consistency and eat at slow pace.
    • Eat your proteins first – patients should consume proteins first at each meal to improve protein intake.
    • Avoid drinking liquids along and for 30 minutes before and after meals as drinking beverages along with meals can cause early satiety and may hinder adequate protein intake.
    • Small portion size – majoring portions is the key to avoid over eating. Patients should control the meal portions in long term as well to prevent weight regain.
    • Listen to your body – each patient may have different capacity and appetite to eat; one should listen to his/ her signals from body as to when to stop eating.

Nutrition Post Bariatric Surgery

Diet follow up

  • After all Bariatric and Metabolic procedures, the rationale of nutritional care is two fold. Firstly, sufficient energy and nutrients helps in supporting tissue healing after surgery and the preservation of lean body mass during the period of extreme weight loss.
    Secondly, the foods and beverages consumed after surgery should decrease reflux, early satiety, and dumping syndrome while maximize the weight loss and, ultimately, weight maintenance.
