Our lead dietitian Fred will see you at the initial assessment to do three things:
- Assess your current eating behaviour to identify any specific issues that may need to change during the onward patient journey
- Prepare you for surgery by advising you on preferred choices of food and fluid (the pre-operative diet); and
- Prepare you for life after surgery by taking you through the features of the recommended post-operative diet
Fred will discuss with you how to make improvements to your lifestyle and your food and fluid intake to achieve the best pattern of weight loss before and after surgery. If you decide to go ahead with any surgical procedure, you will receive more specialised diet and lifestyle information.
Regular follow up will help to keep you losing weight after the operation and, more importantly, keep you eating healthily throughout the process.
