These bariatric recipes are designed to help you meet your protein needs, minimize unnecessary carbs and focus on healthy fats after weight loss surgery. Each surgery center has different guidelines for a long term diet after bariatric surgery so it's important to also consult your surgery center to see what is right for you.
The pureed and soft stage are high in protein and low in carbohydrates to help you maintain your lean body mass after bariatric surgery, assist in your weight loss, and prevent protein malnutrition. As you progress to the regular diet it continues to focus on high protein but I begin to reintroduce high fiber carbohydrates like beets and quinoa.
Most of these bariatric recipes can be altered to each diet stage to meet your texture requirements. To help you find what you are looking for I have organized the site into different categories to best suit your needs. Please choose below from the options.
