1 YOUR DIET AFTER WEIGHT-LOSS SURGERY

2 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. 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 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 a higher stage. 1

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 six to eight, 8-ounce servings of fluids per day to maintain hydration. (Do not drink within one-half hour 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.) 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.) Choose from the following: Ready-to-Drink Commercial High- Protein Supplement Drinks: eas Advantage 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) 3

5 Make your own supplements with protein powder. examples of protein powder: Sample Meal Plan for Stage 1: Full Liquid Diet Designer Whey, Zero Carb Isopure, gnc 100% Whey Protein, UNJURY and Syntrax Nectar. (each scoop of protein powder typically supplies about 20 grams of protein. It should have 3 grams or less of sugar and fat. Refer to the Nutrition Facts label for complete information and a list of ingredients.) examples of homemade high-protein shakes: Breakfast Lunch Dinner Fluids ¼ to ½ cup light yogurt ¼ to ½ cup strained cream soup ¼ to ½ cup skim milk Slowly sip allowed fluids throughout the day. Drink 6 to 8 servings per day (Serving size = 8 ounces). 44 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 Directions: Use a blender to blend all ingredients for about 10 minutes or until smooth.

Stir in one scoop (or one packet) of UNJURY Chicken Soup flavor protein powder or the unflavored style of protein powder.

6 Stage 2: Pureed Diet The Pureed Diet stage requires you to add pureed foods and alternative highprotein supplements 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. 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. Blenderize the food item to a babyfood type consistency. Consume no more than the serving size provided for the food group that you have chosen. 3. Be sure to consume food items from each group daily. You are also able to eat the condiments listed below: Low-fat 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. Add low-sodium broth, low-fat gravy or low-fat milk to add moisture to the meats when blending. When pureeing foods, add only enough liquid to obtain applesauce consistency to maximize your protein intake in a limited volume. 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 Food Dieters 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. Do not chew gum (It may cause blockage). 5
