Deciding to take the leap to undergo surgery can be a scary one. Here at Nourished we have listened to many clients experience barriers to receiving optimal care both pre and post surgery.

How can we assist in Bariatric nutrition?

Pre or post bariatric surgery, having a Nourished Dietitian on your team can be an invaluable tool in keeping you functioning optimally, both mentally and physically.

Bariatric surgery comes with many possible side effects, and as such, receiving appropriate nutrition education and guidance is essential to maintaining your health post surgery and decrease prevalence of these less than optimal outcomes.

Here at Nourished we have listened to the stories of weight stigma and judgment felt by our clients prior to and post surgery. This is usually a barrier to individuals reaching out for assistance. Here at Nourished we hold strong values for inclusivity of all and have no
tolerance for stigma or discriminatory judgement. Your Nourished Dietitian will meet you with compassion and neutrality always.

We can assist in the following areas:

  • Complete dietary analysis and review of deficiency risks
  • Complete supplementation provision
  • Anthropomorphic, lifestyle and physical assessments in relation to nutritional intake
  • Gastrointestinal assessment (i.e. Do you require assistance with reflux/ moving your bowels)
  • Review of current relationship with food
  • Assessment of disordered eating patterns
  • Provision of nutrition strategies and education aimed at keeping you functioning optimally
  • Assistance in plate portioning & eating to your new restrictions

Changing your eating habits is hard; concurrently, changing the way you think about yourself and your eating habits can be even harder. Our Nourished Dietitians are here to guide you nutritionally, making sure you are eating correctly for your new bodily needs, as well as keeping those comparison demons at bay.
