Bariatric surgery is an effective way to lose weight and improve your health, but it is not a quick
fix. Preparing for surgery requires dedication, commitment, and lifestyle changes. Weight loss
surgery is an effective way to start a journey towards a healthier lifestyle. However, it is
important to be well-informed and prepared for the process before you decide to undergo the
procedure. The decision to have weight loss surgery should only be made after careful
consideration, research and consultation with a doctor.
Tips to support mentally before bariatric surgery
- Setting realistic expectations is one of the most important parts. Be prepared that
bariatric surgery won’t make a person thin just after the surgery. It will take time to lose
weight for a longer time. As everybody is different and lifestyle changes and diet habits
play a big role in weight loss success, weight loss will vary from person to person. The
type of surgery you had also plays a role in how much weight loss you can expect.
- Keep count on calorie intake. Sometimes people take the support of food while coping
with stress. Changing food habits is also important. As craving leads to overeating.
- Consult a therapist as this strict situation may lead to depression. Having a therapist or
someone you can talk to can help you work through the many emotions you will feel.
- Be prepared to feel a bit out of touch with food and social gatherings. It may surprise
you to discover how much food plays a role in social life. Begin to identify what changes
will happen and reach out to friends, family, and other important people.
- Keep reminding that bariatric surgery is for good health and that following mindful
habits will only augment the weight loss process. Going back to old habits is easy, but
- Meditation is among the most effective ways to incorporate. It helps to motivate and
may lead to achieving success.
- Finding a community, as a support group, always makes the challenge easier.
Diet tips before surgery
- Reduce the consumption of saturated fat, (including whole dairy products, fatty meat
and fried foods) and foods that are high in carbohydrates (such as sugary desserts,
pasta, potatoes, bread, and bread products)
- Avoid juice and sugar-rich beverages
- A big no to binge eating
- Don’t smoke and avoid alcohol
- Don’t drink beverages or meals.
- Practice new eating habits such as eating slowly, chewing food properly
