Health Tip: Eating After Weight-Loss Surgery
What to do
(HealthDay News) - It's crucial to eat right after you've had bariatric or other types of weight-loss surgery.
The MetroHealth System offers these suggestions:
- Because your stomach is smaller, eat small meals regularly throughout the day instead of a few large meals.
- Eat slowly and chew thoroughly -- it may take about an hour to eat your meals.
- About 30 minutes after meals, drink fluids in small sips -- do not drink beverages with meals.
- Avoid eating sweets.
