Our 4 step Bariatric Management Patient’s Program:

1. Bariatric Nutritional Evaluation

Ideally it takes place before the surgery but we also help patients who already had the procedure. The first step is a comprehensive nutrition and life style evaluation. You tell us about your present dietary habits, exercise pattern, physical limitations, social support and influences, as well as readiness level to make effective behavioral changes towards improved health. Everything from food allergies, medications, past weight loss attempts, recommendations for diet improvement before surgery, as well as specifics of how to prepare for surgery, are important factors that need to be addressed.

2. The Diet Plan

The plan starts with a comprehensive nutrition and supplement program, so you know exactly how to proceed from day 1 after the operation. The program is laid out in a very easy to follow 30 page booklet. Nutrition menus and recipes are provided for each stage of your nutrition and digestive improvement. It also includes a menu of supplement choices written in an easy to follow schedule for you. This allows our patients to be very clear about how much, what, and when to eat and drink. We explain why the specific diet transitions are important, allowing our patients to feel confident about their success and stay focused on their progress. Other topics discussed in ongoing nutrition visits are: Menu planning, Healthy recipes, Eating on the run, Why you need supplements, How Probiotics can improve you weight loss and your health, Protein amounts in foods, Finding a good tasting protein shake, Maximizing your energy levels, Improving bowel regularity, Minimizing hair loss, Weight loss and your body image, and much more.

3. Program Implementation

Once you have your surgery, for best results, a follow up visit is recommended 1- 2 weeks post surgery. In this second visit, a review of your present dietary intake, trouble shooting any problems with digestion, food tolerance, bowel regularity, maximizing weight loss, adequate protein intake and protein shake selection, vitamin supplement tolerance, blood glucose monitoring if Diabetic, and progression back to a normal healthy diet is discussed. New menus are provided to assist you with these next nutrition steps.

4. Support Groups

Support Groups are the key to long-term success. We encourage patients to participate in bariatric support groups post-surgery. They are a safe place to meet others that have similar experiences, fears, challenges and concerns, and find the answers you are looking for to keep you on track. Typically a topic is discussed that is essential for success of the Bariatric patient and everyone gets a chance to ask questions and share their challenges and successes.
