Post Weight Loss Surgery Diet Explained

LA Bariatric Center’s Dr. Korman details what a successful post-bariatric diet could be.

Marina Del Rey, CA ( Freepr101 ) August 16, 2013 - Many people have great success with gastric bypass surgery. Some patients have reported that the most difficult thing about gastric bypass is the post surgical regulations on diet. Essentially, a relearning of eating and activity habits—unlike someone who is simply dieting a bariatric diet MUST be followed; otherwise there are very real consequences.

According to gastric bypass specialist Dr. Korman, of LA Bariatric Center the post surgery patient will be best served by following a recommended diet closely. The gastric bypass diet is specifically designed for people who are recovering from gastric bypass surgery. It can help them heal as well as actively change their eating habits. Dr. Korman and his staff will guide patients through initial meal planning.

The gastric bypass diet will allow the staple in the stomach to heal without being stretched by the food as well as to acquaint the patient with moderate amounts of food that can be safely and comfortably digested in the new, smaller stomach.

Post-bariatric gastric bypass diets often have four phases to help ease the patient back into solid foods. After gastric bypass or other weight-loss surgery the patient must be particularly cognizant of fullness and hunger.

Phase 1 is directly after surgery. Patients are not allowed to eat for one to two days in order to let the stomach start to heal. A diet of liquids and semisolids will follow.

Phase 2 consists of mostly pureed foods. After tolerating liquid foods for a few days, one can begin to eat pureed foods. This phase can last from 2 to 4 weeks.

Phase 3 begins with soft solid foods. The general rule of thumb is if you can mash your food with a fork, it's soft enough to include in this phase of your diet. The phase 3 post bariatric diet can include ground meats, canned or soft, fresh fruit and cooked vegetables. This stage can last for up to 8 weeks.

The fourth and final stage is solid food. After about eight weeks on the gastric bypass diet, you can gradually return to eating firmer foods. It is recommended that the patient starts slowly with regular foods to gauge what can be tolerated.

The greatest risks of the gastric bypass diet come from not following the diet properly. If you eat too much or eat food that you shouldn't, you could have complications. At LA Bariatric Dr. Korman and his staff bring care, compassion and experience to every case of weight loss surgery performed.
