Good option: These organized diets can provide a consistent calorie restricted diet with some built-in support. Remember to focus on solid meals not slider meals. Also, don't drink with meals. Avoid sugars and high fat snacks. Surgery is a tool. Use it to your advantage.

Can help..: When you are that far out from your surgery, maintaining your weight relies on lifestyle changes that you have made. Programs like weight watchers can help you get back on track.
