Bariatric surgery is more than an operation—it’s a decision that signals a commitment to a healthier lifestyle. Following surgery, your health care team will go over a five-phase, post-bariatric surgery diet plan designed to help your body adapt to healthier eating habits. You and your doctor will be able to decide when it is safe for you to move to the next phase of the diet plan, as the process is individualized for each patient.

This tool will help you through each phase by providing lists of recommended foods and supplements for each stage, as well as delicious recipes to try throughout your recovery period.
