What is a “Pouch Reset?”

A pouch reset is a short-term, high-protein, low volume diet to recalibrate your hunger point. Pouch reset diets normally mimic the standard Post-Op 4-Phase Diet, which progresses you from clear liquids to solid foods during the early months following your surgery.

However, you’ll be glad to hear that our dietitians don’t see much merit in making you go through the all liquids and pureed meats phases again. You’re welcome 🙂

 

Why it works:

In the 6 months following your surgery, there’s a considerable amount of inflammation and healing. As swelling subsides, your pouch will settle on a size of around 1.5 ounces for RNY Gastric Bypass and 5-6 ounces for Sleeve Gastrectomy. After this “settling period” there is no permanent pouch stretching, so the “Pouch Reset” diet isn’t doing anything to change the size of the pouch.

Rather the goal is to recalibrate the feeling you get when you eat certain amounts of food. By restricting the volume of food you eat for a significant period of time, you can effectively lower the point at which you feel full.

A proper Pouch Reset Diet will provide you with low calories and low volume while providing your body adequate protein to maintain your muscle and keep you full.

Hunger Decreases Throughout the Pouch Reset

Pouch Reset Decreased Hunger

Throughout the 2 Week Pouch Reset Plan your body becomes accustomed to the smaller amount of food. By the end of the 2 weeks you will have a lower “hunger point” so you can now stick to your diet without having to battle hunger like you did prior to the pouch reset.

What’s included:

Here’s How It Works:

The Bari Life 2 Week Pouch Reset Plan is simple, and that’s why it’s so effective. Here’s the general outline:

Days 1-7: Six (6) Meal Replacement Supplements / Day

Days 8-9: Four (4) Supplements and One (1) Whole Foods Meal

Days 10-11: Three(3) Supplements and Two (2) Whole Foods Meals

Days 12-14: Two (2) Supplements and Three (3) Whole Foods Meals

 

Week 1

Days 1-7

Days 1-7 consist of all supplements. This may sound restrictive, but keep everything into perspective. The #1 reason for doing this is for the result of resetting your pouch and resetting your hunger point. So the first week is about getting into it.

By using all supplements you don’t have to worry about preparing food, wondering if it’s balanced and if you’re getting enough protein on such low calories.

During the first week, you’ll be eating around 600-900 calories and getting at least 60 grams of protein. That’s very difficult to do with whole foods and this only lasts a week because the goal is to progress to whole foods, not live on supplements your entire life…

After the first week, we begin slowly increasing calories by adding in whole food meals.

 

Week 2

In Week 2 you will begin to introduce “whole food” meals so that you can begin to get the feel of what it’s like to prepare and eat real food and use supplements as, well, supplements to your healthy diet!.

General guidelines for “whole food” meals are:

  • 3-4 or 4-6 oz lean meat – depending on surgery type (chicken, turkey, fish)
  • 2 oz non-starchy veggie (all veggies except peas, potatoes and corn)
  • 1 oz starch (peas, potatoes, corn, rice, bread, pasta, cereal, oatmeal, crackers, etc)

Days 8-9

On Days 8 – 9 your day doesn’t change too much, but you do add in one whole food meal and drop one “protein snack.” Most people like to choose dinner for this meal, but you don’t have to. If you love breakfast, then you should make breakfast your whole food meal.

Days 10-11

On Days 10 and 11 you add one more whole food meal. Again, it doesn’t matter which meals you choose, just that two of your meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) are whole food meals with a protein snack in the middle of each meal.

Days 12-14

The final three days consist of 3 whole food meals and 2 protein snacks. This should give you the guidelines for your ongoing diet as you work towards your goal weight. Whether you have 100 lbs to lose or 15 to get to your goal weight, this format is what you can use to take you to the finish line.
