You can start by eating healthier by making healthier choices. When losing weight you look and feel better and have more motivation to participate in exercise to fine-tune your results.
It is important to remember that any bariatric surgery is simply a tool and you will need other methods to maintain the weight loss and supplements to maintain your health standards. With the adjustment of your stomach via the band, sleeve or by-pass procedure, your body will need extra vitamins and supplements that you may no longer be taking in or absorbing as you use to. Zinc and magnesium are two main minerals that the body needs in order to maintain balance and proper gastrointestinal function.
Your new stomach will need zinc to repair the lining in your gut so it can resume its normal function. A zinc deficiency can cause a lack of adequate digestive enzyme function that is pertinent to the success of weight loss surgeries. Magnesium is required for the proper function of stomach muscles, breakdown of food and absorption of nutrients. Within the stomach, magnesium helps neutralize stomach acid and moves stools through the intestine. After weight loss surgery, the minimal intake of food can cause mild constipation but with the supplement use of magnesium, it will promote bowel movements.
