Bariatric Advantage Review - Nutritional Supplements that Promise Benefits For Bariatric Patients

Few are aware that after undergoing weight loss surgery the body requires a diet that is specially designed to suit the nutritional needs of the post-operative period.

Since the body needs less food post-surgery (due to the reduced storage capacity of the stomach), it often times falls prey to inadequate nutrition or even severe malnutrition.

If one tends to consume the same foods that one consumed before undergoing surgical weight-loss only in lesser quantity, malnutrition and other disorders owing to nutritional deficiencies are bound to occur in the body. This is because with the decreased quantity of food, the nutrient intake is also considerably lowered.

That is why there is a need to consume foods that offer high nutrient content without compromising on the calorie count, which has to be low.
