How a Dietician Can Help You After Weight Loss Surgery

How a Dietician Can Help You After Weight Loss Surgery

What Does a Bariatric Dietician Do?

Dieticians are healthcare providers with specialized education and training in nutrition. The dieticians we work with at Advanced Surgicare have special knowledge of nutrition after weight loss surgery.

When you work with a bariatric dietician, he or she will create a nutrition plan tailored to your health needs and goals. Through a series of visits, your dietician will teach you how to read food labels and eat the right variety of foods. They will help you make smart choices about portion size based on how many calories you need to eat per day to lose weight safely and steadily. It’s not enough to eat certain foods and not others — proper portion control is crucial.

Since certain procedures make it difficult for your body to absorb nutrients from foods, your dietician may recommend vitamins or supplements to help you avoid any nutritional deficiencies.

Your dietician will cheer you on as you make progress with your weight loss, and suggest modifications if you run into obstacles or hit a weight loss plateau. They can also work with you to make sure you do not lose too much weight too quickly. Dieticians are the best resource if you have questions about nutrition or diet after bariatric surgery.

Your dietician can help you identify any triggers that cause you to overeat or eat when you are not hungry. They can also help you reframe some of your attitudes around diet and nutrition.

Periodically, your dietician will check your levels of vitamins and minerals to make sure you are getting the nutrients you need and maximizing your chances of success.
