Posted: November 25th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Food | No Comments »

Severe obesity is a chronic condition that is very difficult to treat. Gastric bypass surgery or weight loss surgery is a serious undertaking, but for some people, it is very helpful in jump starting their weight loss goals. Gastric bypass surgery restricts food intake and interrupts the digestive process.

Of course there are pros and cons to gastric bypass, or bariatric surgery. It is important to understand both in order to make a well informed decision that is right for you.

Most patients lose weight quickly and continue to lose weight for 18 to 24 months after the surgery. It is important to maintain a healthy diet during this time. Many patients will start to regain some of their lost weight, but few regain it all. Diet and exercise are important to maintaining that lost weight.

After surgery, your obesity-related health conditions will improve. In one study, blood sugar levels of most obese patients with diabetes returned to normal after surgery. Nearly all patients whose blood sugar levels did not return to normal were older or had diabetes for a long time.

Gastric Bypass Supplements can assist you in diet choices with food and beverages designed specifically for patients of bariatric surgery.
