Nutrition After Bariatric Surgery

Nutrition After Weight Loss Surgery

After weight loss surgery, patients should slowly introduce liquids and solid foods according to a four-stage process. The stages of the diet are:

  • Stage 1: Full Liquids
  • Stage 2: Pureed
  • Stage 3: Mechanical Soft
  • Stage 4: Solid Foods

At each new stage, both the amount and texture of the allowed foods will change. Mercy’s dietitians provide help and support to make each person's journey towards better health as satisfying as possible throughout the entire four-stage process.
