Diet Plan After Gastric Bypass
Stomach bypass patients are typically given extensive instructions on how and what to eat after their bariatric operation.
If you are considering undergoing some type of gastric bypass procedure, here is a sample of the type of post-operative eating plan that your surgeon or dietitian will offer you.
Four-Stage Gastric Bypass Eating Plan
This diet is designed for use after gastric bypass surgery. You will be on a liquid or semi-liquid diet for about three to four weeks to allow healing of the stomach pouch.
Please note: this diet plan is offered for informational purposes only. For specific dietary advice please consult your bariatric clinic.
Stage 1 - Clear Liquids
About one day after your surgery, you will be started on sips of clear liquids (apple juice, orange juice, water, flat diet sodas, sugar-free jello, broth, etc.).
Take small sips and be aware of feelings of fullness. If you tolerate clear liquids, the next day you should be advanced to a Semi-Liquids diet.
