Inside Information on the Post Weight Loss Surgery Diet from Bariatric Surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz

Simplicity and outstanding nutrition are the watchwords for recovery and long-term success

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Studies show that, overall, obese patients who have had laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy keep the weight off in the long run. At the same time, the procedure is not magic and patients must adjust to their post-surgery body and then develop long-term habits that will ensure permanent weight loss. Although diet recommendations after gastric bypass surgery vary depending on the individual and their circumstances, Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and the team at Dr. Feiz and Associates are happy to offer a look into how a person's eating habits will change following a procedure.

Eating Phases
In the first couple of months after surgery, a patient will commonly go through four different eating phases to ease them back into eating solid food. Phase one is a liquid diet to see how well they tolerate foods. At first, patients usually drink only 2-3 ounces at a time of broth, unsweetened juice, milk, soup or sugar-free gelatin in a sting. In phase two, patients will consume pureed foods. These are usually comprised of solid foods that blend well such as beans, yogurt, cottage cheese, soft fruits and vegetables that are blended with water, fat-free milk, or juice with no sugar added. Phase three offers soft solid foods like cooked vegetables and canned fruit. Phase four is solid foods.

Solid Foods
Dr. Feiz and his team have noticed that patients are usually able to transition into solid foods after 2 months. Foods that are particularly spicy or crunchy foods may still cause trouble, however, and foods that may require some caution include nuts, seeds, popcorn, dried fruits, soda, granola, stringy vegetables, tough meats, and breads. With the guidance of their doctor, patients may gradually be able to try some of these foods as well as others. It is highly recommended to stay away from foods that are high in fat and sugar. Aside from the obvious caloric issues, it may be difficult for their digestive system to tolerate these foods. Not surprisingly, it's also best to stay avoid oily fried foods.

Food Choices
Because weight loss procedures drastically reduce the size of the stomach, patients should be able to eat only a small amount of food in a sitting– therefore it should be as nutritious as possible. There will be specific dietary instructions given to each individual, but selections will usually include lean meats, cheeses containing less than 5 grams of fat per ounce, non-fibrous vegetables, and certain fruits.

Portions
As patients adjust following a surgery, they should eat several small meals a day and sip liquids slowly continuously. They might first start with six small meals a day, then move to four meals and finally, when following a regular diet, decrease to three meals a day, though many choose to eat several smaller meals a day as part of their new approach to eating.
