Bariatric Surgery, Taste Changes

Why do things taste different

Is it possible to not like bacon? If you’re a patient who’s had gastric bypass, gastric sleeve or Mini Bypass surgeries, bacon may be one of those foods you just don’t like anymore. Add dairy, sweets and fried foods to that list of dislikes and you may be wondering if the surgeons operated on your tongue as well as your stomach. 

Do you qualify for bariatric surgery ?

You are not alone

Rest assured you’re not alone in this phenomenon. Changes in the way food tastes, smells or is tolerated are incredibly common following weight loss surgery. Much to the delight of dietitians everywhere, these changes in taste tend to work to the patient’s advantage! Studies indicate patients who reported food aversions had greater weight loss and reduced BMI following surgery compared to those who experienced no food aversions
