Cirurgia bariátrica - cuidados para não voltar a engordar
Brazil is already the second country in the world in the number of bariatric surgeries performed. Soon after surgery the weight loss is quite rapid and then gradual until approximately 1 year / 1 year and a half after this period there is a stabilization of weight and some patients may gain 10% of weight lost, what is considered normal.
But about 10-15% of patients after a few years retrieves all the weight lost during surgery, returning to the initial weight.
Among the main causes of weight gain are:
Failure to change eating habits. The patient after surgery, despite eating fewer swallowed, choosing still very calorie foods such as candy, ice cream, chocolate, fried foods, especially when they have known the "dumping";
The habit of "snacking" throughout the day. By volume of the stomach is smaller, people start to feed on a more fractionated and you can start pinching food throughout the day, and often high-calorie foods;
The abandonment of monitoring post-surgery. The monitoring well in the long term, not only in the immediate postoperative period, nutritionists, psychologists and physicians is essential for the results to be achieved and maintained throughout life.
Just as in people who have eliminated weight with diets, bariatric surgery patients should also adopt eating habits and healthy lifestyle forever.
And do not forget the importance of periodic follow up with your doctor.
