The founder of the Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery offers insights on what to expect following surgery.

Plano, TX, March, 2015 – No matter what type of weight loss surgery a person undergoes, the intended goal is to help a patient eat smarter while eating less to promote a healthy drop in excess pounds.

But, just what is involved in eating smarter?

Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder and lead surgeon at the North Texas-based Nicholson Clinic, one of the top weight loss surgery centers in the country, explains.

“The key following weight loss surgery is to plan meals strategically to provide the fuel the body needs to function in a healthy manner while pounds are shed or a loss of weight is maintained,” he says. “This means eating smaller meals – especially post-surgery – that are dense in nutrients. Every bite will truly count.”

To ensure a healthy post-surgical diet, Dr. Nicholson recommends scheduling meals three times a day and planning them out to ensure they are rich in nutrients the body truly needs. It’s best for people to avoid fats, sugar and high-fiber items post-surgery and to strive to work a healthy diet into lifestyle.

Nicholson also recommends:

· Drinking plenty of fluids, including water and protein-rich drinks, such as 1% skim milk

· Eating slowly to avoid any discomfort

· Taking vitamins and supplements recommended by a doctor

· Exercising when an all-clear is given by a doctor to do so

“Eating healthy post-surgery is a whole new experience for many,” Dr. Nicholson says. “Be sure to call on your doctor or your doctor’s dietician for meal plan advice to ensure success in the days, weeks and months following a weight loss procedure. Remember, weight loss is a journey and while surgery is very helpful, you must do your part, as well.”

Founded by Dr. Nick Nicholson, one of the country’s leading weight loss surgeons and co-author of “” The Real Skinny,” the Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery offers a variety of options to help gain control of their weight and their lives.
