How can I prevent weight regain after bariatric surgery?

One way to prevent weight regain after bariatric surgery is to meet with support groups in your community. Talking to people who have gone through the operation can help you prepare mentally and better understand how you will be able to eat.
 
Meeting with a nutritionist after bariatric surgery can also be helpful. You will be given a guideline of what your diet should include in terms of nutrients and vitamins.
 
Establish healthy lifestyle habits, such as daily movement and exercise. You don't have to be at the gym on a treadmill for hours, but you do need to incorporate movement into your life. This might include walking, swimming or anything that you enjoy.
 
Overall, it's important to stay engaged with your doctors and the support community to maintain new healthy habits.
