If I have bariatric surgery will I need to change my eating habits?
Yes. Following surgery your eating habits will need to change.
Some of those changes are recommended to increase tolerance, such as eating slowly and taking small bites. Some changes are to help maintain your health despite rapid weight loss such as including lean protein sources at every meal and eating protein foods first. Finally, other recommendations - such as separating food and fluids, and measuring each meal to ½ cup - are to maintain a small stomach for the long-term thus maximizing weight loss and weight maintenance ability.
