The Importance of Hydration

We all know it’s important to drink water in order to stay hydrated, aid digestion, and boost our overall health.

As a result, many surgery centers recommend that recovering bariatric patients consume 64 ounces of liquids including water and other sugar and caffeine-free beverages. In addition, it is advised that patients refrain from drinking with or 30 minutes after meals. As a result, it can sometimes be difficult to consume adequate amounts of liquids throughout the day.
