Post Bariatric Surgery Techniques for Success

  2. Eat three meals per day: Once you are eating solid foods, plan to eat three meals a day that comprise lean meat proteins and other low fat foods. Cook foods without fat. Avoid high fat sauces, gravies, butter, mayonnaise, and junk food.

  5. Exercise: It may be challenging to start an exercise program following bariatric surgery. Start slow. Once your doctor gives you the okay, find activities that fit your lifestyle and also provide the recommended daily amount of exercise instructed by your doctor. And remember to keep a water bottle with you to help you stay hydrated.
