Calories Still Count
Avoid foods that are high in calories. It is important to get all of the nutrition you need without eating too many calories.
Do not eat foods that have a lot of fats, sugar, or carbohydrates.
Do not drink much alcohol. Alcohol has a lot of calories, but it does not provide nutrition.
Do not drink fluids that have a lot of calories. Avoid drinks that have sugar, fructose, or corn syrup in them.
Avoid carbonated drinks (drinks with bubbles), or let them go flat before drinking.
Portions and serving sizes still count. Your dietitian or nutritionist can give you suggested serving sizes of the foods in your diet.
If you gain weight after gastric bypass surgery, ask yourself:
