Different diet plans are everywhere. You’ve probably tried many of them if you got weight loss surgery or if you are thinking about it. They may not have led to permanent weight loss before surgery, but you might still be considering one or actually following one.

Before surgery, these diets can help you lose weight to make surgery safer and to give you a running start. After surgery, you might wonder whether following one of these diets can help you stick to your weight loss surgery diet and lose a little more weight. Can they help? Are they healthy? How do they work? On this page are some of today’s popular weight loss diets, how they work, and whether they’re healthy.
