What different diet stages should someone follow after he has gastric bypass?

What different diet stages should someone follow after he has gastric bypass?

Post bypass diet: Every surgeon has their own preferences. I generally progress patients from a liquid to a solid diet over a 5 week period of time. Liquids for the first 2 weeks, pureed liquids in week three, soft food in week 4, and solid food in week 5. ...Read more

I had gastric bypass but didn't follow diet and am now almost back to my before weight. Help.

I had gastric bypass but didn't  follow diet and am now almost back to my before weight.  Help.

Wt gain after bypass: You need to get re-engaged with your weight loss program where you had surgery (assuming they offer a support program). Patients who attend support groups are more successful than those who do not attend. There may also be an anatomical reason why you have gained weight like an enlarged gastric pouch, an enlarged anastomosis, or both, which can be corrected with revisional surgery. ...Read more

Is there a diet that I can go on to shrink my gastric bypass pouch back down to the size that it was. Have lost over 200+ want to go another 50 lbs. ?

Is there a diet that I can go on to shrink my gastric bypass pouch back down to the size that it was. Have lost over 200+ want to go another 50 lbs.  ?

Probably not: Diet alone will not shrink the pouch. However, limiting your portion sizes should help. Be sure you are limiting high fat foods and carbohydrates. Most people eat too much of these. If you limit them you should lose weight. Also, are you exercising? If you walk daily it should help with weight loss. Be sure to talk with your doctor about a good goal weight. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it ok to eat pickles while on a gastric bypass 2week pre op diet since it has no cals, carbs fats or surgar?

Ask your surgeon: It is probably ok to eat pickles 2 weeks prior to your bypass. However, every surgeon has their own protocol and sometimes can be very particular about it. It is better to ask your surgeon and be safe rather than risk having your surgery postponed because you were craving a pickle. ...Read more

Weight loss : You may have lost weight on this diet and it may have worked for you ! I don't think it is healthy , because you are missing out on nutrients , because you are eating such low volume of food . Unless you are taking some high powered organic , food supplements , I believe , long term side effects would be hair loss , brittle nails , saggy skin . Rethink this concept . See a dietician and a doctor ...Read more

I am on antipsychotics gained weight I have diet exercise no luck while on it doc won't take me off thinking of lapband or gastric bypass ?

Stay on meds!: I know u asked about surg, but meds first. Anger issues: i can see why your doc would want you to stay on your meds. However, none of the meds listed are antipsychotics, so I am confused. Phentermine, while for wt loss, can make anger worse. See if doc will try metformin instead. And instead of the clonazepam, what was your antipsychotic?Is there a less fatty one? Or it with metformin? Be well. ...Read more
