Bariatric Mexico Surgery, a facilitator company in Baja California, Mexico, aims to provide people with advice, information, and guidance on bariatric surgery, helping them to determine whether it is right for them and informing them on what to expect. One of the ways in which they achieve this is through the release of regular informative blog posts. They have now announced the release of their latest post, 'Why a Pre-Op Diet is Necessary Before Weight Loss Surgery', which can be accessed at https://www.bariatricmexicosurgery.com/why-a-pre-op-diet-is-necessary.html.
Bariatric Mexico Surgery's Alma Orozco says: "Two to three weeks before your weight loss surgery, you'll begin a pre-op diet that helps to improve the safety of your surgery. Its purpose is to shrink the liver and reduce abdominal fat. Following this diet will also keep you healthier post-op. If you are considering bariatric surgery to help you lose weight, then this diet is an absolute necessity."
The blog post starts by explaining the things that people can eat while on this diet, and why those elements should be added. They include protein shakes, clear liquids, caffeine free coffee and tea, sugar free snacks, and low calorie soup. These are all essential to help shrink the liver and the fatty tissue in the body. Alma Orozco adds: "Some patients may be permitted small amounts of lean meats or protein-rich foods like nuts, depending on your body mass index (BMI). No matter what your BMI, you can expect to consume an all-liquid diet for at least a week before surgery and immediately after. The earlier you adopt a pre-op diet, the better you can prepare you body for weight loss surgery and your post-op diet."
The article then discusses the foods that are no longer allowed, either before the surgery or after. They include foods high in carbohydrates and starches, high sugar foods, and high fat foods. Many people who require bariatric surgery find that these foods are a staple part of their diet and have often contributed to the fact that they have become overweight. It can, therefore, be very difficult to cut them out all of a sudden.
