The diet may vary depending on the bariatric procedure performed. Certain procedures are more prone to malabsorption or to dumping syndrome. Therefore special dietary restrictions related to the volume, consistency, and composition of the food may be advised.
No special weight management food after bariatric surgery
But you will have to watch your portions and you will need to learn a lot about nutrition as it relates to the specific type of bariatric surgery you have done. Also, you should expect to need vitamin supplements; again, the exact ones you'll need will be dictated by the type of bariatric surgery you have done. The best way to start to do your homework related to questions like this is to attend a local bariatric surgery informational meeting.
