Herbal Supplements for Weight Loss – Which Ones Work? #herbal #products

Herbal Supplements for Weight Loss

Updated March 06, 2015

Have you considered taking an herbal supplement for weight loss? There is no shortage of products that promise to melt fat or blast away pounds. But they don t always deliver the results that you expect. So it s important to gather the most current information about herbal supplements to lose weight safely and more effectively.

Herbal Weight Loss Supplements – The Basics

There are different types of dietary supplements.

Herbal supplements for weight loss are those that come from plant sources and claim to help you lose weight. Sometimes they are also called botanicals or phytomedicines. Herbal supplements often have a label that says they are natural and often have healthy-sounding names. But just because a product is natural doesn t mean it is safe. And just because a supplement is healthy doesn t mean it is effective.

Several recent studies conducted on dietary supplements found that consumers who buy herbal supplements may not get the product that is advertised on the label. Unfortunately this is a trend that doesn t just happen with online vendors or shady back-alley dealers. The State of New York recently cited several large retailers including Walgreens and GNC, for selling products that were not as advertised. Legislators in New York are pushing for stronger laws to protect consumers who buy herbal supplements for weight loss and for other health concerns.

Healthy Eating

Popular Herbal Supplements for Weight Loss

If you choose to supplement your weight loss program with an herbal product, you ll probably find that popular products in stores and online contain one or more of these herbal ingredients.

  • Glucomannan . This natural fiber product comes from the konjac plant. While diet supplements that contain glucomannan say it is effective for weight loss, a recent 8-week study found that the herbal supplement did not promote weight loss.
  • Chitosan. This product actually comes from fish but it is frequently listed as an herbal supplement to help you lose weight. People who are allergic to shellfish should not take this product. Even if you are not allergic, recent studies have found not found it to be effective for weight loss.
  • Bitter orange. After ephedra was banned, some herbal supplement manufacturers started using bitter orange instead. Bitter orange may help you burn more calories, but researchers are not sure. Scientists have substantial concerns about the safety of the stimulant. Users of bitter orange have reported chest pain, anxiety, and increased blood pressure and heart rate.
  • Green tea extract. This herbal supplement is found on almost every drugstore shelf and many vendors sell the pills online. Unfortunately, many of the research studies that investigated the extract s effectiveness have not been high quality. The NIH suggests that green tea may provide a modest weight loss benefit.
  • Raspberry ketone . You ll see raspberry-related products in many herbal supplements for weight loss. But there have been no high quality studies to demonstrate it s effectiveness as a diet aid in humans.
  • Forskolin. This extract from the Coleus plant has not been studied enough to determine if it is effective for weight loss. And some medical experts believe the herbal supplement may have dangerous side effects.
  • Aegeline. While this product should no longer be available, you may still be able to find it online or in stores. Aegeline (included in OxyElite Pro ) was removed from the market and banned by the FDA after several cases of death and severe injury were reported. The ingredient was included in popular fat burning supplements and body building products.

Should I Take an Herbal Supplement to Lose Weight?

Before you take any supplement, be sure to consult your health care provider to make sure that the product is safe for you to use. Many products can be safe for some people but dangerous to others when combined with a medication, vitamin or health condition. So be absolutely sure that you tell your doctor about all of the supplements, pills, and herbal products that you take or plan to take.

While you re at your doctor s office, you may also want to ask if there have been recent scientific studies about the effectiveness of the product you re considering. It s best to get this information from an unbiased source, like your doctor. You can also check the database provided by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or the NIH Office of Dietary Supplements Fact Sheets. According to the NIH, most supplements have been found to be ineffective for weight loss.

There are some products that have been shown in limited situations to have some weight loss benefit, but you re not likely to slim down if you rely on the supplement alone. You re more likely to see results if you focus on proven methods such as a calorie-controlled healthy diet and regular exercise. Then add a supplement only if it is recommended by your physician.

Lap Band Surgery Procedure, Advantages and Results #lap #band, #gastric #band,gastric


#

Northwest Weight Loss Surgery, the leading center for the Lap-Band. Gastric Bypass. Sleeve Gastrectomy. for weight loss surgery

Special Offers

LAP BAND SURGERY PROCEDURE, ADVANTAGES RESULTS

About Lap Band Surgery

The Lap Band surgery (also known as Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band Surgery) was approved by the FDA in June 2001. Prior to that, it was the number one weight loss operation being performed in Europe and Australia. Over 550,000 Lapbands have been placed world-wide since 1993. Multiple long-term studies have shown average excess weight loss to be greater than 55% in the majority of patients. Current studies have shown the band to be a highly effective operation with the lowest risk.

Lap band surgery involves implanting an adjustable gastric band designed to help you lose weight, improve weight-related health conditions and enhance quality of life. It reduces the stomach capacity and restricts the amount of food that can be consumed at one time. The Lapband is a silicone ring designed to be placed around the upper part of the stomach and filled with saline on its inner surface. This creates a new, smaller stomach pouch that can hold only a small amount of food. The Lapband also controls the stoma (stomach outlet) between the new upper pouch and the lower part of the stomach. When the stomach is smaller, you feel full faster, while the food moves more slowly between your upper and lower stomach as it is digested. As a result, you eat less and lose weight. Click here for an animated video on the lap band procedure.

The Minimally Invasive Procedure

During the procedure, surgeons usually use laparoscopic techniques (making tiny incisions rather than a large incision and inserting long-shafted instruments through ports ), to wrap the lap band around the patient s stomach. A narrow camera is passed through a port so the surgeon can view the operative site on a nearby video monitor. Like a wristwatch, the Lapband is fastened around the upper stomach to create the new stomach pouch that limits and controls the amount of food you eat. The band is then locked securely in a ring around the stomach. Since there is no stomach cutting, stapling, or gastrointestinal re-routing involved in the lap band procedure, it is considered the safest, least invasive, and least traumatic of all weight-loss surgeries. The laparoscopic approach to the surgery also has the advantages of reduced post-operative pain, shortened hospital stay, and quicker recovery. If for any reason the Lap-Band device needs to be removed, the stomach generally returns to its original form.

Adjustable Weight Loss

Once placed around the stomach, tubing connects the lapband to an access port fixed beneath the skin of your abdomen. This allows the surgeon to change the stoma size by adding or subtracting saline or salt water, inside the inner balloon through the access port. This adjustment process helps determine the rate of weight loss. If the band is too loose and weight loss is inadequate, adding more saline can reduce the size of the stoma to further restrict the amount of food that can move through it. If the band is too tight, the surgeon will remove some saline to loosen the band and reduce the amount of restriction. The diameter of the band can be modified to meet your individual needs, which can change as you lose weight. For example, pregnant patients can expand their band to accommodate a growing fetus, while patients who aren t experiencing significant weight loss can have their bands tightened.

The lapBand procedure is the only adjustable weight-loss surgery available in the United States to help maintain restriction and keep the weight off long-term.

Advantages of Lap Band Surgery

  • Least invasive surgical option
  • No intestinal re-routing
  • No cutting or stapling of the stomach wall or bowel
  • Small incisions and minimal scarring
  • Reduced patient pain, length of hospital stay and recovery period

Fewer Risks and Side Effects

  • 10 times less operative and short-term mortality than gastric bypass 1
  • Low risk of nutritional deficiencies associated with gastric bypass
  • Reduced risk of hair loss
  • No dumping syndrome related to dietary intake restrictions

Adjustable and Reversible

  • Allows individualized degree of restriction for ideal rate of weight-loss
  • Adjustments performed without additional surgery
  • Supports pregnancy by allowing stomach outlet size to be opened to accommodate increased nutritional needs
  • Only surgical option designed to help maintain long-term weight loss
  • Removable at any time
  • Stomach and other anatomy are generally restored to their original forms and functions

Effective Long-Term Weight Loss

  • More than 550,000 Lap-band devices placed worldwide
  • Standard of care for hundreds of surgeons around the world
  • #1 selling adjustable gastric band for weight loss
  • Academic publications with up to 10 years of follow-up

Diet and Exercise After Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss gives you more energy, makes you feel better about yourself and motivates you to continue the changes that have made you successful. The success of any weight loss operation must begin with realistic goals; once established, your motivation will ultimately determine the amount of weight you lose. Weight loss surgery works with you, not by itself. It creates a situation where a small amount of food makes you full and less hungry, reducing the number of calories eaten in a day. If you take advantage of this situation, you will lose weight.

Exercise adds to this by increasing the number of calories burned. When you exercise, you build muscle, which increases your metabolic rate, which burns more calories. We strongly encourage the addition of exercise to weight loss surgery, as the combination of eating fewer calories and burning more calories is very powerful for successful weight loss.

There are patients who go through the trouble of having weight loss surgery and do not lose much weight because they expect the lapband surgery to do the work for them. Becoming a thinner person requires change. You must be more active and make wise food choices. An example is a patient who eats a large quantity of high-calorie liquids such as milkshakes or sugary sweets. Sugar is an unnecessary source of calories that you must burn off with exercise. We strongly recommend not eating sweets after weight loss surgery (unless it s your birthday). Try sugar-free foods. Other patients sabotage their success by grazing or emotional eating — eating small amounts of food throughout the day. After weight loss surgery, if you avoid sugar, high-calorie liquids and emotional grazing, you will increase your success rate. The best way to lose weight is to eat less and exercise more.

Northwest Weight Loss Surgery has developed a comprehensive after care program to better prepare you for the lifelong changes after surgery. We encourage you to attend our monthly support groups where we discuss many topics relating to the weight loss journey. For patient success stories click here .

Motivation is the Key to Weight Loss

Most patients who’ve had lapband surgery found it to be the only thing that allowed them to keep the weight off long-term. We hear people say things like “weight loss surgery gave me my life back and I wish I would have done this sooner . We have many successful patients. but it is incorrect to think that you do not have to put any effort into losing weight. Your surgeon will educate you on your responsibilities as a weight loss surgery patient. These include new eating patterns and a new lifestyle.

Down Syndrome Treatments #down #syndrome #treatments, #early #intervention, #individualized #education #program,


#

What Are the Treatments for Down Syndrome?

If your child is born with Down syndrome. you want to be able to make informed choices about treatments that can help your little one thrive.

Because Down syndrome affects everyone who has it in different ways, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. But doctors do know that the earlier children get care, the more likely they are to live up to their full potential.

Your child may need help in different ways, from crawling and walking to talking and learning how to be social. She may also need extra attention in school. And she may have medical issues that need regular care.

You’ll likely rely on a team of providers, including your child’s main doctor, and maybe specialists like ear doctors, heart doctors, and others. Your child may also work with physical, occupational, and speech therapists.

Early Intervention

Most states offer programs that provide a range of services for children up to 3 years old. These programs can boost your child’s physical and mental growth. They typically have therapists and teachers who are specially trained to help kids learn a variety of skills, such as how to:

  • Feed and dress themselves
  • Roll over, crawl, and walk
  • Play and be around other people
  • Think and solve problems
  • Talk, listen, and understand others

Help in School

Many kids with Down syndrome go to their neighborhood schools along with all the other kids. This can be great not only for your child, but for the other children as well.

Your child also has the right to get services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which starts at age 3. IDEA requires public schools to offer the best education they can, no matter what challenges a person faces.

As part of this effort, you’ll work with the school to develop an individualized education program (IEP). This helps make sure your child gets support that suits her needs. It may include things like working with a reading specialist or speech therapist.

While public schools work great for many children, there other types of schools that focus more on the needs of kids with Down syndrome. Your child’s doctors, therapists, and teachers can help figure out which is best for her.

Continued

Medical Treatment

Some health problems are more common in kids with Down syndrome. Many children don’t have them, but if yours does, you can get treatment for:

Hearing loss . Many children with Down syndrome have hearing loss in one or both ears. Because of that, your child will likely have regular visits with an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor to catch any issues early on. Sometimes hearing problems are caused by fluid build-up in the ears. In that case, ear tubes — which many children get if they have constant ear infections –can help.

Problems seeing. Issues with eyesight are also common. Your child will have regular check-ups with an eye doctor and may need glasses, surgery, or other treatment. It’s important to keep up with ear and eye exams. because problems seeing and hearing can lead to delays in learning and talking.

Heart problems. About half the babies born with Down syndrome have a problem with either the shape of their heart or how it works. Some conditions are more serious than others and require surgery. In other cases, your child may need to take medicine.

Obstructive sleep apnea. This is a condition where a person’s breathing stops and restarts many times as they sleep. Typically, a child with Down syndrome gets checked for sleep apnea by age 4. During an overnight sleep test, doctors check to see if your child’s breathing stops and restarts. If so, she may need to wear a mask while sleeping. The mask is attached to a machine that helps her breathe normally. Sometimes, larger-than-normal tonsils and adenoids cause sleep apnea. In this case, your doctor may suggest surgery to remove them.

Leukemia. Children with Down syndrome are at a 10- to 20-fold increase for developing this blood cancer. But the risk is still at 2%. Leukemia is curable.

Thyroid. Thyroid disorders are more prevalent in children with Down syndrome.

Other medical problems. Your child may also have other less common issues that need treatment, such as:

  • Blockage in the intestine. Some babies with Down syndrome get Hirschsprung ’s disease, where part of the intestine gets blocked. This is treated with surgery that removes part of the intestine.
  • Infections. Babies with Down syndrome also have weaker immune systems, so they may get sick more often. There’s no treatment for this, but it means that getting vaccines on time is even more important.
  • Thyroid problems . The thyroid makes hormones your body need. In kids with Down syndrome, it sometimes doesn’t make enough. If that happens, your child will take medicine to help.

Getting Home Insurance Claims Paid – Consumer Reports #flood #insurance, #insurance,

Please Refresh Your Browser Window

How to get your homeowners insurance claim paid

W hen a storm slams through your front door or another catastrophe strikes, the whim of fate can determine the severity of damages you suffer. But when it comes to how easily you can pick up the pieces, your destiny may have been decided a decade or more ago—when you chose your home insurer.

Greg Rasp of Bellbrook, Ohio, survived a close call with a tornado and hail in May 2011, then got too little attention from State Farm. It took the nation’s largest home insurer two weeks to send an adjuster, and they were slow to pay Rasp’s $75,000 claim, leaving him out of pocket for thousands of dollars. State Farm rated in the middle of the pack, according to the latest Consumer Reports National Research Center survey of more than 9,900 subscribers who filed homeowner’s insurance claims from 2010 through the first three months of 2013.

Peter Andrew and Andrea Von Amelunxen, on the other hand, got “stellar” service from top-rated Amica. Their less-terrifying brush with 3 feet of snow and ice dams on the roof of their Connecticut home caused around $30,000 in damage from melt water that trickled down walls, across ceilings, and over hardwood floors. Amica handled the claim over the phone, had an estimate the next day, fixed what was needed without disagreements, and paid up within a week. “We were blown away,” Andrew says.

Many consumers shop for homeowners insurance once, then forget about it. Home-loss claims are uncommon to begin with, and losses tend to be relatively small. That means consumers don’t develop much experience shopping for the product and rarely get a chance to “test” firsthand how it performs.

When the intake line for one of Bob Ridout’s hot water tanks burst, water poured into his basement for 24 hours. Baseboard, drywall, carpeting, and tile were damaged to the tune of $30,000. USAA’s remediation crew swooped in 90 minutes after Ridout called. They vacuumed up the water and set up fans and dehumidifiers that ran all night. Early the next morning, 10 people arrived to continue the cleanup. “I paid my $1,000 deductible, and we never had any issues,” Ridout says.

Our readers judged Amica, USAA, and Auto-Owners more favorably than most other insurers on satisfaction, as our Ratings on page 43 show. Amica especially stands out for earning the top spot in our Ratings for as long as we’ve evaluated that service. It’s a distinction earned through seven surveys dating back to 1988, including this one, involving more than 140,000 homeowners.

Companies can be fickle. James Lipsett and his husband, Paul LaRiviere, were happy with the service they got from State Farm on their $35,000 water-damage claim caused when their second-floor toilet overflowed and drenched their Morro Bay, Calif. home. But less than a year later, the Good Neighbor people sent the couple a notice of non-renewal because of the claim. “Both of us felt betrayed by State Farm,” Lipsett says. State Farm declined to comment on the matter.

Hurricane test: Insurers doing better

In Brick, N.J. signs of the devastation remained months after Sandy.

Devastating though it was, Superstorm Sandy was no Katrina, the most destructive hurricane in modern U.S. history. And home insurers did a better job handling claims of victims of Sandy than of Katrina.

Twenty-seven percent of readers who filed claims related to Sandy, which walloped the Northeast in 2012, had problems with their insurer’s claim handling or payment. Seventy-nine percent were satisfied with how their home insurer performed.

That’s vastly better than homeowners’ experience with Katrina in 2005, when 50 percent of claimants suffered problems and only 51 percent were highly satisfied.

But Katrina, a category 3 hurricane, packed winds of up to 130 mph. Sandy had weakened below hurricane strength when it made landfall in New Jersey. And despite Sandy’s catastrophic storm surge along the densely populated and pricey New York and New Jersey coasts, the storm’s $50 billion in damages were less than half of Katrina’s $108 billion.

Meanwhile, insurers have gotten more tight-fisted. Our readers got reimbursed for 80 percent of their losses from Katrina but for only 71 percent of losses from Sandy.

Prepare for a fight

The basement and garage of this Long Beach. N.Y. took in more than 5 feet of water.

As hurricane season 2014 revs up, with potential for large-scale losses. now’s the time to learn how to push back against your insurer. Justin Rubin, a retired insurance claims executive whose Long Beach, N.Y. home sustained significant damage from Superstorm Sandy in October 2012, didn’t let his insurer (he prefers not to name it) deny coverage by blaming flooding, which was not covered. He argued that some of the damage in the basement was caused when the plumbing system backed up before the storm surge, and the insurer paid.

Justin Rubin of Long Beach, N.Y.

Prepare long before a disaster. “Find a reliable agent or broker, and ask questions right now, before you suffer a loss,” Rubin says. Ask about the house value and the applicable “minimum” coverage required to get full protection in a total loss, review the “perils” listed in the policy, and fill “exclusion” gaps with separate insurance for flood, hurricane. or earthquake, based on the threats you face in your region. (Watch our videos, below, on flood insurance, generators, chain saws, and other emergency-related subjects.)

Befriend a good contractor today

The beauty of trees on your property belies the hidden hazard that one could topple onto your house, maybe without warning. There was no storm, wind, or other signal when a neighbor’s huge oak came crashing through David and Mai Queen’s Arlington, Va. home in the middle of the night in September 2012. A large section of the tree trunk landed in their bed. Luckily, the Queens were visiting friends in Belgium at the time.

The standard homeowner’s policy covers damage caused by trees that fall on insured buildings on your property plus the cost of removing the tree itself, generally subject to a $500 or $1,000 limit. USAA covered the Queens’ $40,000 in damages without trouble and began the claims process and repair immediately, without requiring the couple to cut their vacation short. But they’d have been on their own if the tree simply had landed on the ground.

Linda Paustian of La Porte, Ind. found out about that exclusion after a violent thunderstorm dropped hard maple and red oak trees on her 1895 arts and crafts bungalow and all over her property in June 2010. “Before the storm, we had about 11 large trees on our property. After the storm, we had 30 to 40 trees in the yard,” she says. State Farm paid $6,000 for the cost of removing trees that struck the house but nothing for the additional almost $6,000 needed for tree and debris removal and stump grinding.

Know the limits of your policy. If your neighbor’s tree hits your house, your policy covers it, not theirs. If a tree falls on your car, your auto insurance pays—if you have comprehensive coverage. Lastly, have a plan for tree removal. either sufficient savings to pay a pro or do-it-yourself skill in safely taking a chain saw to big timber.

Surprise troublemaker: Your mortgage company

When Tim Haynes of Nashport, Ohio, lost the roofs of his home and barn due to wind, State Farm promptly paid the $52,000 claim, and the roof on his home was repaired. But an unlikely interloper held up $42,000 of the settlement for the barn: Haynes’ mortgage company.

Many homeowners are surprised when their settlement check also has their mortgage company’s name on it, a fact of life that aims to keep irresponsible claimants from blowing the money in Vegas instead of repairing the lender’s collateral. So the bank will demand that forms be filled out before funds are released, often in stages as work is completed. There may be inspections of the work, and—of course—extra bank fees.

“If you have a mortgage, be prepared for lots of extra steps to get your payment,” one claimant advises. After you file your claim, contact your mortgage company to find out how to get the settlement check endorsed and deposited to your or the lender’s escrow account.

Tap buried treasure

The promise of home insurance is to restore your house to pre-loss condition. But sometimes you can do even better. A number of readers were able to get materials upgrades, including wind-resistant garage doors, safety window glass, and new carpeting by paying the incremental extra cost on top of what the insurer was going to pay. One Colorado homeowner whose neighborhood was hit by hail damage got a $1,000 “referral fee” (equal to his deductible) and received upgrade replacement shingles from his roofer for referring other homeowners to him. Another homeowner, whose hallway wood floor buckled after a small, slow powder-room leak, was delighted to learn that his insurance would cover replacement not only of the damaged flooring but also of the flooring contiguous to it—and so got new wood floors for the entire downstairs of his house.

Preparing for Weight Loss Surgery

Robin F. Apple, James Lock, and Rebecka Peebles

  • -Part of the successful TreatmentsThatWork series
  • -First book of its kind exclusively for mental health professionals working with pre-operative weight loss surgery patients
  • -Treatment program outlined is based on cognitive-behavioral techniques proven to be effective with overweight and obese individuals

Preparing for Weight Loss Surgery

Robin F. Apple, James Lock, and Rebecka Peebles

Description

Obesity has quickly become an American epidemic. People suffering from significant overweight often have to contend with a lifetime of significant comorbidities, social stigma, and lower quality of life. Recently, more and more people are undergoing weight loss surgery as a way to resolve these issues.

If you are working with pre- or post-operative bariatric surgery patients, your goal is to teach them the skills they need to ensure themselves a successful surgical outcome. After surgery, patients are required to adhere to a strict diet and the very specific recommendations of their surgical “team.” Without a high level of commitment from the patient to follow these recommendations, the potential for maintained weight loss after surgery is very limited.

Preparing for Your Weight Loss Surgery, Therapist Guide contains a series of scientifically tested cognitive-behavioral techniques to help you prepare your patient for the post-operative challenges of creating radically changed eating and lifestyle habits. It provides instructions for teaching your patient basic problem-solving and cognitive restructuring methods that will change their negative thoughts and attitudes about food. Interactive forms including food records and checklists, body image journals, and homework assignments found in the corresponding patient workbook round out this comprehensive treatment package.

TreatmentsThatWorkTM represents the gold standard of behavioral healthcare interventions!

BL All programs have been rigorously tested in clinical trials and are backed by years of research
BL A prestigious scientific advisory board, led by series Editor-In-Chief David H. Barlow, reviews and evaluates each intervention to ensure that it meets the highest standard of evidence so you can be confident that you are using the most effective treatment available to date

Reviews and Awards

“These volumes are an extremely useful addition to the field. Psychological and behavioral preparation is a critical part of the bariatric surgery process, yet it has been sorely underemphasized in the literature up to this point. These volumes give this important topic the attention it deserves.”– Scott Crow, M.D. Professor of Psychiatry, University of Minnesota

“Very little has been available for mental health professionals who work with bariatric surgery patients preparing them for surgery, despite the fact that many important issues need to be discussed before this life changing procedure. Preparing for Weight Loss Surgery Therapist Guide and Workbook by Apple, Lock and Peebles provides a very important, practical and user-friendly work which nicely fills this void. Therapists working with this group of patients can use these materials with confidence, knowing that the texts are informed by the latest research in the area and are both pragmatic and clinically informed. These materials represent a major step forward in the care of patients who will be undergoing bariatric surgery.”– James E. Mitchell, M.D. Christoferson Professor and Chair, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences

“The recent surge in the use of bariatric surgery, because of its effectiveness in the treatment of obesity, has outpaced the development of methods to prepare individuals, before and after surgery, for the behavior changes that need to occur in relation to food. These manuals therefore, fill an urgent need to prepare patients, both adolescents and adults, for bariatric surgery and provide sensible guidelines for the patient (and therapist) for the management of potential post-operative problems.” Stewart Agras, M.D. Professor of Psychiatry, Stanford University School of Medicine

GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY- Information on cost, expected weight loss and risk


#

Gastric Bypass and Gastric Sleeve Diet

Immediately after your gastric bypass or gastric sleeve surgery, you won’t be able to eat for one to two days. After a couple of days, you will be able to eat some very specific foods according to a diet progression. The purpose of the gastric bypass diet progression is to help you in the healing process, minimize stress on surgical areas and allow time for your body to adjust to new eating patterns.

Common phases in the gastric bypass and gastric sleeve diet:

Phase I – Liquids – foods and fluids that are liquid or semi-liquid at room temperature and contain mostly water, such as broth, juice, milk, strained cream soup and cooked cereal. In most cases, you stay on a liquid diet for one to two days.

Phase II – Pureed foods – foods with a consistency of a smooth paste or a thick liquid. Pureed foods contain no distinct pieces. The pureed diet is generally followed for three to four weeks, or as recommended by your dietitian or doctor.

Phase III – Soft foods – foods that are tender and easy to chew, such as ground or finely diced meats, canned or soft, fresh fruit, and cooked vegetables. You usually eat soft foods for eight weeks before progressing to eating foods of regular consistency with firmer texture as recommended by your dietitian or doctor.

During the diet progression, you eat many small meals each day and sip liquids slowly throughout the day (but not at the same time you eat). You may start with six small meals a day, then progress to four meals and then finally, when following a regular diet, decrease to three meals a day. Typically, each meal will include protein-rich foods, such as lean meat, low-fat dairy products (yogurt, cheese) or eggs. Protein is important for maintaining and repairing your body after surgery.

How quickly you move from one step to the next depends on how fast your body adjusts to the change in eating patterns and the texture and consistency of food. People usually start eating regular foods with a firmer texture three months after surgery, but it can occur sooner.

You may drink anything that is clear and liquid at room temperature. Avoid caffeine and carbonated drinks.

  • Water with ice chips
  • Sugar free popsicles
  • Crystal Light
  • Decaf tea
  • Sugar Free Jell-O
  • Diet V8 Splash

Do not drink from straws or sports top bottles as this can cause air bubbles and may cause discomfort. Water may be difficult at first. Try adding lemon and adjusting the temperature. Please follow your doctors’ recommendations on how long to follow each diet.

  • Mashed potatoes
  • Bananas
  • Malt-O Meal
  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Baked Fish
  • Low Fat cottage cheese
  • Sugar free yogurt or pudding
  • Applesauce with no sugar added
  • Soft cooked vegetables
  • Avoid eating fats and sugar for the time being as these may be difficult for the body to digest in this stage.
  • Chew your food very well – eat slowly.
  • If you feel full – STOP EATING

  • Protein is needed by the body to build and repair the body’s cells and tissues.
  • Protein plays a vital role in immunity.
  • Choose lean meats such as:
  • Fish, shellfish, poultry, lean beef, lamb, pork, veal, and 95% fat free deli meat.
  • Avoid high fat cooking methods like frying with oil. void high fat meats such as bacon, sausage, pepperoni or salami.
  • A limited amount of fat is needed in the diet.
  • Fats can be found in baked goods (cakes, muffins, cookies), greasy or fried foods, oils and butter.
  • Fat may be difficult to digest after gastric bypass surgery.
  • Too much fat may cause reflux (heartburn).
  • Excess fat may cause diarrhea, nausea and discomfort.
  • Avoid high fat choices like regular salad dressing, butter, cream cheese and mayonnaise.
  • Choose low fat options such as fat free / low fat salad dressing, mayonnaise, nonstick cooking spray and olive oil.

  • Carbohydrates including grains and starches are the bodies main source of energy.
  • They provide energy, B Vitamins, Fiber, and Minerals
  • Complex carbohydrates provide nutrients and make you feel full.
  • Look for foods with whole grain or 100% wheat flour.
  • Examples of complex carbohydrates:
  • Wheat bread, low fat crackers, cereals with low sugar such as Special K, Cheerios, Raisin Bran, rice and pasta
  • VEGETABLES provide fiber, energy, Vitamin A and Vitamin C
  • Choose a variety of vegetables for your diet
  • Avoid using high fat cooking methods such as added butter or oil, or adding high fat sauces such as creams, cheese or gravy
  • Remember to incorporate vegetables back into your diet slowly and start with soft consistencies.
  • FRUIT provides complex carbohydrates, fiber, energy and Vitamin C.
  • Incorporate them into your daily routine; fruit makes great snacks.
  • Choose a variety of fruits
  • Remember to incorporate fruits back into your diet slowly and start with soft consistencies.
