How does Weight Loss Surgery work?






1) RESTRICTING INTAKE All weight loss surgeries restrict the amount we eat, you’ll be full after eating very little. Even with  a very reduced stomach size you need to do your part too:

            - STOP EATING WHEN YOU’RE FULL! The days of leaving the table hungry are over! Eating beyond full is not only painful but will cause stretching and slow your progress


            - DON'T GRAZE!   You'll be  full after eating a small amount, over eating is painful. Grazing is known as picking at small amounts of food between meals.  Grazing is the #1 down fall causing weight gain. You’ll notice you won’t get as hungry as you did before surgery, take advantage of the surgery and break the grazing habit! 


                      - USE YOUR SMALL STOMACH WISELY! You’ll lose approx. 80% of your former stomach, so your tiny stomach capacity must be used carefully. Protein intake is a must, all your nutrients that keep you healthy must find their way through your tiny stomach.
                     -  DON'T DRINK YOUR CALORIES!  Carbonated drinks are a “no no” after bariatric surgery, a bloated feeling is uncomfortable, after WL surgery it’s much worse and can cause complications and stretching. Use caution if drinking alcoholic drinks, you will feel the effects much quicker than you’re used to and can become intoxicated very quickly. Most alcoholic drinks are high in calories and defeat your weight loss goals.
                   

Restrictive surgeries give you an edge you weight loss victory. You’ll now be able to control your weight like you never thought possible.
Success and a healthier you is within your grasp. GOOD LUCK!




2. MALABSORPTION 

Malabsorption is brought about by weight loss surgeries that limit the absorption of foods in the intestinal tract by "bypassing" a portion of the small intestine to varying degrees. In these procedures food quantity is restricted, and bypassing a portion of the intestine with the result being you won’t get the total caloric content from your food. BUT you'll also not get the nutrient value of the intake that’s bypassed. For this reason, surgeries involving malabsorption are not available to patients with certain medical conditions and are worthy of long term considerations
