Weight loss surgery can be very effective in battling obesity and its severe health consequences. Surgery; however, is not a magic fix, and patients have to learn how to eat healthfully in order to avoid gaining the weight back and then some.
Malnutrition can develop following the surgery with the absorption rate or intake of nutrients reduced that can adversely affect a patient’s health. In addition, many patients can no longer tolerate certain foods such as meat and dairy products after surgery which can make it more difficult to get the essential nutrients the body needs. Because the stomach has been made smaller, people who have had weight loss surgery are at risk of not getting enough protein, iron, fiber, important B vitamins and other important nutrients due to the amount of food they are able to take in.
Malnutrition can lead to many serious health problems like anemia, permanent nervous system damage and vision problems as well as lead to losing muscle mass which will slow the metabolism and cause weight gain.
Advanced Fiber formulas can give your body the fiber it needs in order to maintain bowel regularity as well as a healthy intestinal transit time and support a healthy body composition, or body fat to lean muscle mass, which is crucial to keeping your metabolism burning.
B-complex vitamins are crucial in regulating chemicals in the body in order to convert food into energy as well as promote cell growth and aid in cancer prevention.
