This module tests you knowledge of the food choice you should make after surgery.

Protein drinks are an important source of protein only after surgery.


Fluids keep you hydrated and minimize appetite. It is recommended that you drink 64 ounces of low calorie beverages daily. Avoid carbonated beverages, juices, and alcoholic beverages.


Carbohydrates are easily converted into sugar, which is then stored as fat.


Protein is considered your most important food choice before and after surgery because it promotes healing, minimizes hunger between meals.


When reading the label of a protein drink you should choose a drink that has more than 200 calories to help with healing and weight loss.


After surgery your stomach needs time to heal. You should progress through Phase I (protein drinks), Phase II (semi-soft/pureed consistency), Phase III (solid / diced foods) over a period of time of at least 2 weeks per phase.


Semi soft / pureed food after surgery is considered phase 1 because your body can tolerate this type food texture best immediately after surgery.


All bariatric surgery patients are required to take a multivitamin and calcium + vitamin D.


All post-operative patients who eat a well balanced meal do not need to take vitamins / minerals after surgery.


Fruit is a very healthy food choice; after surgery you can have as much fruit as you would like.
