Diet and Nutrition After Bariatric Surgery

Continuing your journey to health and happiness after surgery.

Your diet after bariatric surgery will depend on the type of surgery you had and usually will consist of clear liquids for the first week. This includes water-based broth, sugar-free gelatin, decaffeinated tea and diluted juices. It is important that you heal your stomach at this stage; nutrition is secondary to prevention of a leak. Over the next month, your diet will be advanced as directed by your surgeon.

We will always strive to help you achieve your goals once you leave. For more information on diet and nutrition after surgery, please check out our patient resources section.
