What to Eat After Gastric Bypass Surgery


Many people are under the impression that gastric bypass surgery is the easy way out of obesity. However, those that believe this unfortunately misunderstand the operation and its lifestyle and mind altering effects.

After speaking to people who have had the gastric bypass you soon realise that real work and focus is needed to actually keep the weight off after the first year of rapid weight loss. Right after surgery your stomach won't be able to cope with much food, perhaps only a quarter of a cup of solid food. This will increase over time, but eating too much could make you vomit - you must stop eating as soon as you feel hungry.

Most nutrition's agree that 3 solid food meals a day is sufficient for those who've had gastric bypass surgery, making sure you drink enough water in-between so you don't dehydrate but don't eat and drink together - you're small stomach simply can't handle it and you may be sick!

With any healthy balanced diet, eating nutritious meals will serve your body well - reduce fatty and sugary meals and focus on protein rich foods such as fish and chicken. Google is your friend and there are many websites out there giving example diets specifically for those who've recently had gastric bypass surgery.
