Bariatric Surgery is only a tool and not a cure. Weight loss or bariatric surgery still requires a commitment to balanced eating, regular physical activity, and healthy lifestyle choices in order to maintain good health and keep weight off after surgery. Surgery cannot force you to make these choices for you. We challenge you to make the effort to learn how to use the new tool properly!

This 5-page document provides sample meal plans for the transition between different food textures upon discharge from the hospital following bariatric surgery. Each individual clinic may have different time frames they recommend for the duration of each stage. This serves as a guide and is the protocol I used with my bariatric patients at the Center for Obesity and Metabolic Surgery.
