Diet Progression after Gastric Bypass Surgery

The patient should understand that size of the stomach after the surgery is very small. So it is essential to take 2-3 bites at a time and wait till ten minutes before starting any new food. In comparison to soft solids, liquid empties fast from the stomach. Quick or overeating can result in pain or nausea. Avoid eating creamy liquids such as ice creams, gravies and sauces.

Diet Regime in the Hospital

A patient is required to follow a specific diet post surgery. The patient will be given broth, juices and Jell-O which are high in sugar content. The food portions after the surgery will be very small and the amount will be gradually increased after a patient gets the power to tolerate it.

Diet for First Two Weeks After the Surgery

It is advisable to drink thick liquids that include –

sugar-free pudding

1% or non-fat milk, if the patient is able to tolerate milk

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
