At Newtown Nutrition, we work closely with some of Sydneys leading weight loss surgeons – assisting their patients to get the best results from their bariatric surgery.
The main concern post-surgery is being able to get enough nutrition with such a small stomach (generally 1/2 cup portion per meal). Whilst people successfully learn to implement adequate nutrition with the limited portion size, two re-occurring complaints we hear as Dietitians is that people struggle to know what to eat socially and to come up with variety.

Protein – check!
Fibre – check!
Variety – check!
Eating post-op can be an exciting challenge. If you’ve had weight loss surgery and are struggling to know what to eat, check in with one of our experienced Dietitians.
