Navigating Nutrition

Weight Loss Surgery is an excellent tool to help you limit the amount of food you eat and help you lose weight. For most people weight loss surgery requires a significant change in diet and lifestyle to safely and healthfully reach your goal weight. As this process can be a bit overwhelming, we have created a portal to help address all of your nutrition concerns before, during, and after surgery.

Between the initial evaluation for weight loss surgery and surgery day, take the time to become as prepared as possible for the lifestyle modifications and health behaviors that we know equate to a safe and successful long term weight loss.

We recommend that you begin adapting your current diet pattern and health behaviors now to prepare for this change.
