4 Steps To Stay Hydrated After Weight Loss Surgery
  • Staying hydrated is an important part of the
    recovery process following bariatric weight loss
    surgery. Water is an essential nutrient that
    helps to prevent fatigue, headaches,
    constipation, dry skin, dizziness and it also
    helps to prevent more serious complications
    following your surgery.
  • While drinking the recommended amount of water
    can be difficult with the smaller stomach pouch,
    it is still important to aim for a daily goal of
    64 ounces of water. To help you stay hydrated
    after weight loss surgery, follow these four
    steps

1) Have Water With You Everywhere You Go
  • By carrying a bottle of water with you at all
    times, you make it easier and more convenient to
    get the recommended amount of water in each day.
    Fill your water bottle early in the day and set
    goals that will help you keep up your fluid
    intake. Forgetting to drink enough water is easy
    enough as it is, but its even more prone to
    happen if you do not have water readily available.

2) Sip, Dont Gulp
  • One of the most important things to keep in mind
    is that your new stomach will not be able to
    handle large gulps. Big gulps of any drink, not
    to mention chugging, will lead to nausea and
    vomiting, which can develop into more serious
    complications. Instead focus on taking small slow
    sips throughout the day. You may even want to use
    a straw to help you slow down your drinking. By
    having water with you at all times, you will also
    make it easier to take small sips rather than
    feeling the need to chug some water at the end of
    the day just to get it in.

3) Do Not Drink With Meals
  • Maintaining a healthy and consistent diet is also
    important as you recover from bariatric surgery,
    however your body will not be able to handle so
    much at once. You do not want to get full from
    too much water that you are not able to eat a
    meal. It is helpful to allow yourself 30 minutes
    before and after eating to drink water this will
    ensure that one does not replace the other.
