Weight loss surgery is a big step forward for many people. It's not just a way to lose weight. It's a way for the person to become healthy and to live longer for family and friends. After the surgery, there are things that will need to be changed in regards to the diet and exercise routine. It's important to maintain a low-calorie diet, eating foods that have more protein so that the body gets the essential nutrients that it needs from healthy items instead of junk food.

Some nausea is normal in the first few days to a week, but if you find that you can't keep any food down, then you need to make a call to the office to see if there's something wrong. 

The amount of food and liquids that you will consume will be decreased after surgery. Make each calorie count instead of drinking sodas and a lot of water.

It can also result in feelings of being tired, which can prevent you from exercising. If you don't maintain a proper diet along with exercise, then you won't see the results that you likely desire.
