I’ve heard that people are able to eat their way out of bariatric surgery. Is that true and if so how is that possible?
It is true that you can regain weight after bariatric surgery. Failure to follow the recommended eating habits after surgery is a common reason for weight regain or stretching out your stomach. For example overeating, regularly eating high fat or high sugar foods, drinking fluids with your meal, sedentary lifestyle, snacking throughout the day and failure to follow up with our bariatric multidisciplinary team are all reasons to weight regain. Bariatric surgery is an effective tool for weight loss. Engaging in positive lifestyle behavior change is essential along with this tool to provide long term weight loss.
