How do I keep the weight off after weight loss surgery?

After surgery, one of the main concerns that patients have is regaining weight. Although that can occur, as long as the patient continues to eat relatively healthy food in small portions and continues to exercise, it’s very unlikely that that patient would regain weight. When patients regaining significant amounts of weight, it’s usually because the patient has stopped following all of the recommendations given by the doctor, and they are now eating junk food, eating a lot of carbs, eating a high volume of food, eating a lot of sweets, and generally eating foods that are unhealthy for them. If you follow the guidelines set forth by your medical team and adopt a healthy lifestyle, it will be possible for you to maintain a significant amount of weight loss for the rest of your life and improve your health long term.
