1 YOUR DIET AFTER WEIGHT-LOSS SURGERY

2

3 Your Diet After Weight-Loss Surgery Now that you have completed your weight-loss surgery, it is important for you to follow a healthy diet plan. As a general rule, adequate fluid and protein intake are essential to successful recovery. The information in this packet will serve as general guidelines to help you to determine what foods are best for you at the different stages of your recovery process. Your outpatient registered dietitian will help you customize a successful diet according to your specific tolerances and taste preferences. This nutrition expert will also provide you with other nutritional materials to help you with your diet. In the Hospital After surgery, when you have received approval from the surgeon, you will be able to drink 30 ml (one fluid ounce) of clear liquids. Liquids must be sipped over 30 minutes during waking hours. If this is tolerated, then on day two you will be able to drink 30 ml sipped over 15 minutes. You may choose from the following: Water Fruit-flavored water Sugar-free Kool-Aid Crystal Light Unsweetened decaffeinated iced tea Decaffeinated tea or coffee (Do not add cream.) Sugar-free ice pops (Popsicle ) Sugar-free, diet gelatin (Jell-O ) (Do not have red gelatin.) Clear broth Before you are discharged, you will advance to a stage 1 diet. (See PAge 3.) When you are ready to leave the hospital, a dietitian will briefly review the dietary guidelines in this packet with you. Once you are discharged from the hospital, your surgeon or dietitian will continue to assist you with your dietary needs. How Weight-Loss Diet Planning Works You will progress through four stages of dietary guidelines throughout your recovery process. If you are having difficulty with your current stage, please contact your surgeon and DO NOT advance to the next stage. 1

4 The following chart describes each dietary stage you will experience based on the food type and the general period of time you are to follow the prescribed diet. Stage Recommended Diet Description Stage 1 Full Liquid Diet You are able to add smooth, minimal texture foods and protein supplements to your diet. Continue on this diet for approximately the first two weeks (14 days). (See PAge 3.) Stage 2 Pureed Diet You are able to add blenderized protein food sources to your diet in addition to blenderized fruits, vegetables and starches. Continue on this diet for approximately one week (7 days). (See PAge 5.) Stage 3 Soft Texture Diet Approximately three weeks after your procedure you will regain the ability to eat non-blenderized foods. Continue on this diet for approximately one week (7 days). (See PAge 8.) Stage 4 Healthy Weight for Life Diet Plan The general dietary recommendations in this stage will help you maintain a healthy weight for life. (See PAge 10.) Important Tips It is important that you remember the following tips throughout each stage of your dietary process: Do not use straws. Do not chew gum (may cause blockage). Do not drink at least 30 minutes before and after meals. Do not drink caffeine. Do not drink beverages with carbonation. Do not drink alcohol. Do not drink fruit juice. Do not eat citrus foods. Do not eat food high in fat and/or sugar. each meal should last 30 minutes. Always drink and eat slowly. 2

5 Stage 1: Full Liquid Diet The Full Liquid Diet is generally recommended the second day after your procedure. You will now add a protein supplement to your diet. Use the recommendations below as guidelines for healthy eating during this diet stage. The foods in this section are grouped according to their food type. It is important that you choose foods from all three groups on a daily basis. To help you determine how to plan meals, a sample one-day meal plan is included at the end of this section. Fluids Group Slowly sip sugar-free, non-carbonated, caffeine-free fluids throughout the day. Remember to avoid using a straw. Drink 64 ounces of fluids per day to maintain hydration. (Do not drink within 30 minutes before and after meals.)

Choose from the following: Sugar-free pudding made with 1% or skim milk Light, low-fat smooth (no chunks, plain or vanilla only) yogurt made with artificial sweetener (greek yogurt is an excellent choice.) Cream of Wheat made with water or skim milk Protein Supplements Group Drink 8 ounces of protein supplements three times per day. Spread the 8 ounces over a one-hour period. (Your goal is to consume 60 grams of protein each day. You will need to gradually work up to this goal. Work with your dietitian to determine how you will meet this goal.) Guidelines for Choosing a Protein Supplement Use a protein supplement that is: 3 grams of fat or less 3 grams of sugar or less 150 calories or less At least 15 grams of protein examples of ready-to-drink, commercial, high-protein, supplement drinks: eas AdvanteDge Carb Control Ready-to-Drink gnc Total Lean Lean Shake Isopure Protica Protein Beverage Profect or Proasis varieties 100% whey protein powder (Choose any brand; can be mixed with fat-free milk; typically has 20 grams of protein per scoop.) 3

6 You may make your own supplements with protein powder. examples of protein powder include Designer Whey, Zero Carb Isopure, gnc 100% Whey Protein, UNJURY and Syntrax Nectar. Sample Meal Plan for Stage 1: Full Liquid Diet Breakfast ¼ cup light yogurt examples of homemade high-protein shakes: Yogurt Shake INgReDIeNTS 4 ounces of allowed smooth yogurt 4 ounces of 1% or skim milk or Lactaid 1 scoop protein powder 1tablespoon Crystal Light Lunch Dinner Fluids Between Meals ¼ cup strained cream soup ¼ cup skim milk Slowly sip allowed fluids throughout the day. Drink 64 ounces per day. Drink high-protein supplement to help reach your goal of 60 grams of protein per day. DIReCTIONS Use a blender to blend all ingredients until smooth.

Thoroughly mix the protein powder with the milk by shaking or stirring. Put the Jell-O sugar-free instant dry pudding mix into a bowl. Add the protein powder and milk mixture. Cream of Chicken Soup 44 Pour 8 ounces of skim milk into a microwave-safe container. Microwave milk about one minute, then microwave 10 seconds at a time, checking the temperature each time until 130 degees. Do not heat above 130 degrees. (It is a good idea to use a meat thermometer for the first time. This will allow you to know how long your microwave takes.) Stir in one scoop (or one packet) of UNJURY Chicken Soup flavor protein powder or the unflavored style of protein powder.

7 Stage 2: Pureed Diet The Pureed Diet stage requires you to add pureed foods to your diet. Continue to use a high-protein supplement. Use the recommendations below as guidelines for healthy eating during this diet stage. The foods in this section are grouped according to their food type. Although the foods will be blenderized, do not mix food from different food groups. You may mix foods from the SAME food group. Steps to Preparing Pureed Foods 1. Select food from one of the food groups. 2. Use a blender or food processor to puree foods to an applesauce consistency. 3. Add low-sodium broth, low-fat gravy or low-fat milk for moisture when blenderizing meats. When pureeing foods, add only enough liquid to create an applesauce consistency. This helps maximize your protein intake in a limited amount. You are also able to eat the condiments listed below: Light or fat-free mayonnaise Mustard Fat-free spray butter Spices/herbs To help you determine how to plan meals, a sample one-day meal plan is included at the end of this section. Tips for Preparing Pureed Foods Be sure to use a blender or food processor. Meats need to be tender (stewed, baked or boiled) before they can be pureed. Cook in crock pot until very tender. Use light mayonnaise when blending tuna or egg. Add low-fat milk to hot cereal or mashed potatoes to increase protein content. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of protein powder to foods to increase protein. You may add butter buds, butter spray and/or spices to season foods as tolerated. Important Tips to Remember For STAGE 2: Pureed Diet Your goal is to consume at least 60 grams of protein per day; however, you will need to gradually work up to this goal. Work with your dietitian to determine how you will meet this goal. Continue to consume two servings of high-protein supplements daily. eat protein first. Blend all foods to the consistency of applesauce. Add foods slowly and one at a time to test tolerance. Stop eating or drinking when full. Overfilling may stretch the stomach pouch and hinder weight loss. eat slowly. Sip fluid slowly. Do not eat baby food. Be sure to consume food items from each of the following groups daily. 5
