Your post-surgery diet

  • Three small meals per day with a focus on protein and produce – approximately four to six ounces in weight.
  • Avoidance of sugar, carbonated beverages, high carbohydrate foods, and red meat
  • No liquids with meals.
  • Water between meals – remember to drink slowly.
  • Commitment to learning about better nutrition and changing your relationship with food.

Your post-surgery exercise

  • Your doctor will discuss an exercise routine with you.
  • Gradually work your way up into a routine.
  • 60 minutes of exercise six times each week.
  • Interval training exercises each week.
  • Track your exercise and create reasonable goals.

Your weight-loss support

  • Join a support group that allows you to discuss struggles, emotional difficulties, and learn from and share with others – this can lead to long-term success!
