Diet Plans Q & A

What is a diet plan?

A diet plan is a nutritional template that teaches you how to eat healthily and lose weight. 

To develop a custom diet plan, your Advanced Surgeons provider takes several factors into account, including your age, health status, weight, and lifestyle. They use that information to make meal and snack recommendations that help you achieve optimal health and well-being.

Who creates the diet plans?

Advanced Surgeons have professional nutrition experts on-site. They boast more than 50 years of combined experience as registered dieticians and nutritional consultants. Following weight loss surgery, the nutritionists provide support to help you achieve your long-term goals. 

They educate you on how to have a healthy relationship with food, make sure you get the necessary nutrients in your diet, and teach you how to make good decisions. 

Why are diet plans important after bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery is safe, effective, and easy to recover from, but it fundamentally changes how your entire gastrointestinal system functions.

Depending on the type of surgery you have, you might need to eat much less, absorb fewer calories, or both. Some types of surgery even require a liquid diet plan for weeks or months. A diet plan helps you make the transition to life after surgery. 

Do diet plans require regular checkups?

Yes. If you decide to participate in a diet plan at Advanced Surgeons, you need to visit the office for regular checkups. 

Every few weeks, you visit the practice for a routine exam. At each visit, your provider monitors your diet and caloric intake. If they determine you’re at risk of a vitamin or nutritional deficiency, they can make adjustments as necessary.

Are diet plans permanent?

The length of time you need to participate in a diet plan depends on several factors, including your level of fitness, medical history, and goals.

If you’re able to lose weight and keep it off, your Advanced Surgeons provider can adjust your diet plan to align with your current needs.

If you’ve struggled to maintain a healthy weight for most of your life, consider the plan permanent. Eventually, you can splurge every once in a while, but to achieve long-term results, you need to stick to a balanced, nutritious diet.
