What happens if you gain back weight after gastric bypass surgery?

What happens if you gain back weight after gastric bypass surgery?

If you begin to regain weight after gastric bypass surgery, talk to your doctor: You may have a sense of what’s causing your weight gain. However, you may need a more thorough evaluation to determine what factors — medical, psychological, lifestyle — are involved in the weight gain. You may have gained weight after gastric bypass surgery because of changes in your stomach and intestine that allow you to eat more and absorb more calories. It's also possible that your diet and exercise habits have slipped, in which case you must typically lose the regained weight the old-fashioned way — both by reducing your calorie intake and increasing your physical activity. In some cases, a second surgery to repair — or redo — a gastric bypass may be appropriate. This is especially true if the anatomy of your stomach and small intestine have changed, such as with a fistula (additional connection between the stomach and intestine). However, a second surgery has an increased risk of complications, including infection, bleeding and leaks in the gastrointestinal tract. Because of these risks, gastric bypass surgery usually isn't redone if you regain weight because of poor diet or exercise habits. Gastric bypass surgery can be an effective treatment for obesity, and most people do lose weight after the procedure if they are adequately prepared for the changes that are necessary. But you'll always be at risk of regaining weight, even years later. To help reach your weight-loss goal and prevent weight regain, it's crucial to make lifestyle changes along with having gastric bypass surgery. ...Read more

What should you eat after weight loss surgery?

What should you eat after weight loss surgery?

In General...: Weight loss surgery forces you to change how you eat, forever (unless you use a lap band, which may be reversible). You will have to get used to eating small meals because your stomach will be reduced to a tiny size. If you are ready to take it seriously, see a nutritionist and get started with a non-surgical program for weight loss because you will have to prove you are committed to your health. ...Read more

Can you please tell me if i will gain weight after 2 days of binging?

Can you please tell me if i will gain weight after 2 days of binging?

You can: Depends also on many factors. I have patients who can binge on over 50, 000 kcal daily while others feel they are binging when they consume 1, 000 kcal. Also, some may binge on chocolate while another may eat 3 heads of lettuce. The risky part of binge episodes is that most people want to do something to "make up for" their episodes and these compensatory behaviors can lead to more weight gain. ...Read more

Will i gain weight after a hysterectomy? I know there will be hormone issues after my hysterectomy. Does this mean i will gain weight? How can I prevent weight gain during recovery?

.

That : That is a good question. Women have different responses to the hormonal changes after hysterectomy. As always, any exercise program you can start once your doctor clears you will help. Some women can consistently walk a mile every day, some prefer to go to a gym. Find a nutritional program that is right for you. While in the hospital, you could ask for a nutritional consult to get advice. Ask your doctor whether you will need hormone replacement after surgery as this can affect weight gain and loss. Many women do not have weight gain after surgery but it is good that you are planning ahead for your health. ...Read more

If a individual wishes to lose weight / body fat then should you do cardio before weights or after weights?

If a individual wishes to lose weight / body fat then should you do cardio before weights or after weights?

Cardio exercise: Doing cardio is a great way to lose weight and you do not have to lift weights in order to lose weight. In fact, lifting weights generally builds muscle and that can actually add some weight. However, this isn't necessarily bad because you are replacing fat with muscle. I prefer cardio first and if you have extra time you can lift weights. ...Read more
