The Pre-Op Diet Checklist For BARIATRIC PATIENTS

Why Should You Prepare Your Pre-Op Diet?

Before the surgery, patients must undergo a pre-operative diet to reduce body fat in the liver because there is a direct correlation between obesity and the liver.

How You Should Prepare?

Eat Healthy

Eating healthy is a must! With a proper healthy meal, you may be able to provide your body with the nourishment it needs to function properly.

Include Protein

In general, it’s recommended that 10-35% of your daily calories come from protein.

As protein preserves muscles, consuming protein-rich food items will allow you to be prepared for the excessive weight loss.

Avoid Unhealthy Eating Habits

Sugared beverages, alcohol, excess coffee and smoking – All should be avoided!

Eat Slowly

The satiety signals take 15 to 20 minutes, after food is first eaten, to reach your brain.

Therefore, eating slowly & chewing thoroughly can help you avoid overeating.
