Those who’ve experienced the rewards of weight loss surgery no doubt can attest to the challenges they encountered along the way. Getting on track and staying there post bariatric (weight loss) surgery can be extremely difficult, especially if you’re doing it all on your own – but you don’t have to…
This is where a dietitian comes in. In fact, consistent follow-up care with a dietitian, along with an interdisciplinary healthcare team is a vital component of successful surgery outcomes.
Why do you need a dietitian post-surgery?
Following weight loss surgery, to prevent any complications, the risk of regaining weight or suffering from malnutrition, it’s important to change both what and how you eat.
Post-surgery, the right dietitian with experience and training in the area of bariatric surgery, will address issues such as food intolerances, challenges in implementing healthy eating habits, adequacy of your diet in meeting basic nutritional needs, and adherence to vitamin and mineral supplementation, all while providing a platform for the patient’s unique questions and concerns.
The right dietitian can help support patients in maintaining healthy eating habits in the face of personal stress that may provoke unhealthy behaviours, such as emotional eating. In some cases, and for some patients, the behavioural aspect may be just as important as the nutritional changes.
