After weight loss surgery, it’s important to adopt a healthier way of eating in order to reach your weight loss goals. However, that doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to eat foods you enjoy or that you have to give up eating normal foods for life. Although you will need to slowly build up to eating normal foods after surgery, you will be able to have a healthy and enjoyable eating plan.
After bariatric surgery, you will typically need to stick to a liquid diet for a period of time as your body heals. Gradually, you will add foods to your diet until you have transited completely to a normal diet. For most people, this transitional period lasts for about six weeks. Your weight loss surgeon will help you decide how and when to add food to your diet.
