How to eat after a sleeve gastrectomy?
The food will be soft in texture (cooked fruit in compotes, well-cooked vegetables).
Food will be reintroduced gradually in a diversified manner: fruit cooked in compotes then cut into small cubes..
Vegetables should be cooked in pieces (it is preferable to peel and de-seed them).
Eggs (drooling omelette) and fish cooked in steam or in foil will be taken first.
Chicken and meat should follow.
If discomfort is felt during the meal, go back to the mixed dishes.
Raw vegetables (cucumbers, etc.) should only be eaten from the 6th week after surgery.
Some foods (especially red meat) should be cut into small pieces, otherwise eggs and fish are more easily eaten and also provide protein.
It is essential to chew each mouthful well. However, some foods will have difficulty passing.
In principle, there is a degree of tolerance for each patient.
Avoid foods that are too sweet, too spicy, too acidic, too high in fat, too hot or too cold.
Sleeve gastrectomy does not create a major imbalance, except in Vitamin B and if the patient’s diet is unbalanced.
STOP EATING IMMEDIATELY WHEN YOU FEEL FULL AND AVOID SNACKING BETWEEN MEALS
