Following instructions given to you after Weight Loss Surgery is necessary to achieve your goal. In this post I’ll enlighten you on how to restart weight loss after gastric bypass and stages involved.
Keeping the post-op diet, and also eating habits during your diet phase post-surgery is necessary to reach your goal weight. Also, lots of patients keeps to recommendations for short of time. And then get off track on their diet, or take excessive carbohydrates and sugars.
When this occurs, the patient may lock up the new metabolism and cause a halt to their weight loss. The body metabolism is changed by gastric sleeve so that the body burns more calories and fat easily and quickly. The metabolism is “tricked” with the surgery and the patient usually has about 18-24 months until the body figures out what is happening. In this period, intake of wrong foods or too much sugar or carbs, the body can then snap back and lock down its metabolism and thus the patients hit long weight loss stalls.
The Pouch Reset is there to embrace when the patient goes off on their own track and breaks the postop diet. For instance, having alcohol, or eating the wrong foods (those high in carbs and sugars), after that, the metabolism shifts into a store mode, and instead of weight loss, the patient typically hits a plateau and then it takes time and effort to break this plateau.
Pouch Reset should help you to restart weight loss after gastric bypass and get you back on track. Pouch Reset will be as a mimic of the post-op diet in a sense. It will be not easy, and you should have support from your partner and relatives and above all, you will need some willpower to achieve it.
