Gastric Sleeve Diet Plans & Recipes
A sleeve gastrectomy (aka gastric sleeve surgery) is a surgical weight loss procedure in which a person’s stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size thanks to the removal of a large portion of the stomach. It’s an irreversible procedure that is performed laparoscopically and is typically performed on men or women for whom the gastric band procedure is considered unsuitable or unsafe.
What you need to know about pre and post operation nutrition
The gastric sleeve procedure requires patients to undergo strict pre and post operation dietary changes in order to make successful weight loss achievable; the surgical procedure itself is only half of the job done. Prior to the surgery, the patient will need to go on a typically liquid based gastric sleevepre op diet. This will enable the digestive tract to be well prepared; it will shrink the liver and minimise the risk of potential surgical complications.
When it comes to the post op gastric sleevediet, like all weight loss plans diet and exercise still matter. Energy output still needs to exceed energy input in order for successful weight loss to occur even after such a surgery.
