Weight loss surgery center provides guidance on proper nutrition following bariatric surgery.
Plano, TX, November 14, 2014 - The Nicholson Clinic, one of the most well-renowned weight loss surgery centers in the nation, provides information on post-surgery diet guidelines for weight loss surgery patients. Having helped over 10,000 patients lose weight through a variety of bariatric procedures including LapBand surgery, gastric bypass, and gastric sleeve, the Nicholson Clinic is in a unique position to provide the best guidance for eating following surgery, says the Clinic’s founder, Dr. Nick Nicholson.
“Our mission as a weight loss surgery clinic is to help our patients lose weight through the most appropriate surgical procedure,” says Dr. Nicholson. “But, ultimately, what we really want for them is to be able to keep the weight off and live a much healthier, more fulfilling life. We help our patients travel a road to success by helping them take care of themselves appropriately - and that means diet, exercise, and a commitment to a new lifestyle.”
Part of what the Nicholson Clinic offers through the surgical process is post-surgical support. They provide their patients clear directives following surgery regarding eating smaller, healthier meals, increasing protein intake, increasing water consumption, and avoiding alcohol, caffeine, and sugar. The team at the Nicholson Clinic will connect their patients with a qualified nutritionist who will help them not only navigate eating immediately following surgery but will help them build an after-surgery lifestyle that includes sound nutrition to support a healthy weight and a healthy body.
Nutrition information can be found on the Nicholson Clinic’s website, but it’s also a subject that is a part of the entire surgical process at the Clinic. The medical team will always include nutrition as a part of the conversation regarding surgery and offer patients the opportunity to always ask questions along the way. As education is a big part of the Nicholson Clinic’s mission, the team makes sure that their patients always have access to informational resources and nutritional support.
“Weight loss surgery is a tool to help people lose weight but it has to be used appropriately to be successful,” says Dr. Nicholson. “That’s why it’s so important to us as a team to arm our patients with all the tools necessary to be successful and that starts with nutrition.”
