What to Do After Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

After gastric sleeve surgery, it is essential to take care of your diet and habits to ensure optimal recovery. Our specialists have prepared a series of tips that will help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

1.Enjoy a Varied and Nutritious Diet

Fruits, vegetables, and greens are essential allies in maintaining a balanced and healthy diet. In addition to their delicious taste, these foods are loaded with essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and fiber, which are crucial for promoting your well-being and facilitating your recovery process. It is important to include a variety of vegetables and greens in your meals and dinners, as their diversity of flavors and textures will add a special touch to your dishes. You can combine them with other nutritious foods like legumes, eggs, fish, or meat, creating dishes full of flavor and vitality.

On the other hand, fruits are a perfect option for any time of the day, whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or snack time. Accompanied by yogurt, nuts, or a hint of cinnamon, fruits become a delicious and comforting snack. We recommend opting for seasonal fruits, offering you a more intense flavor and a higher concentration of nutrients. Additionally, their variety of colors and aromas will invite you to enjoy a unique and satisfying gastronomic experience.

In summary, incorporating fruits, vegetables, and greens into your daily diet will not only improve your health but will also provide you with a wide variety of flavors and textures that will make your meals an unparalleled experience.


2.Stay Hydrated: Drink Water Regularly After Gastric Sleeve Surgery

It’s crucial to stay hydrated, especially in warm climates. Therefore, for bariatric patients, it’s essential to drink water throughout the day in small sips, avoiding doing so during meals. To facilitate this, carry a water bottle with you and make sure to have it always on hand, both at home and at work. Additionally, it’s important to avoid sugary and alcoholic beverages, as they not only contribute to fluid loss but are also unhealthy for weight control. If you feel the need to flavor your water, a healthy option is to add a few drops of lemon or fruit pieces with ice. On the other hand, it’s advisable to avoid carbonated drinks and sodas.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to lead a healthy life and fully enjoy the benefits of your bariatric surgery. Take care of your health and well-being!


3.Enjoy Fresh and Healthy Foods After Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Opt for fresh and healthy meals that aid in your recovery process. It’s important to choose nutritious options and avoid excess. Avoid very hot broths, fatty sauces, fried foods, gazpachos, cold creams, and homemade fruit smoothies with excessive sugar. Instead, include grilled foods in your diet, such as meats, fish, and seafood, as well as boiled meals. You can also prepare homemade drinks without added sugars, using water as a base and adding lemon or orange, flavored ice cubes, fruit chunks, and fresh spices like mint, cinnamon, or basil.


4.Engage in Sports Throughout the Year

Physical activity is essential for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Aim to engage in outdoor sports or gym workouts during the early morning or late afternoon/evening, avoiding the hottest hours of the day. In Spain, we have a wide variety of sports activities for all seasons, such as cycling, dancing, skating, swimming, paddle tennis, table tennis, rowing, windsurfing, golf, beach volleyball, and basketball, all of which offer numerous health benefits. Joining a gym can also be an excellent option, with accessible options and trainers who will guide you in your progress.

Practicing sports in a group is even more enjoyable, so invite your partner, friends, or family to join in!

5.Prioritize Rest and Regulate Your Sleep Hours After Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Allocate time to rest and disconnect from work during the night. Quality rest is essential for regulating our hormones and can help us maintain lost weight. Sleeping at least 8 hours a day will help you reduce accumulated stress and control food cravings. Prioritize your rest to take care of your overall well-being.
