Seeing your surgeon is only part of the story. Having weight loss surgery is a lifelong commitment to improving your nutrition, health and lifestyle.
Don’t forget the most important tool in your toolkit – your dietitian.
Dietitians are primed to provide individual, evidence-based advice, which can take your surgery from doing ‘okay’ to ‘amazing’, which can exceed all your goals and expectations.
The key is the support from your dietitian and implementing those changes.
How can we help you?
We support you prior to your surgery to guide you through the initial stages of the pre-operative diet, through each diet modification and advise you on recommended vitamin and mineral supplement prescriptions.
We can help you have the most energy post-op.
We aim to ensure your health is paramount by preventing muscle wastage, which would reduce weight regain.
We provide support to change your eating behaviours for the better to overall improve your health and wellbeing.
We encourage and motivate you to move your body in a way that feels good for you.
We endeavour to prevent nutritional deficiencies after your surgery, to ensure you’re feeling amazing each day.
If you’re experiencing hiccups on your journey, we can support and guide you to how you can improve your symptoms.
Our dietitians will be your ongoing cheerleaders!
