Weight Loss Surgery

Not losing weight is a problem that can occur after undergoing bariatric Weight Loss Surgery, typically due to not following postoperative guidelines. A good bariatric surgeon will make sure that their patients understand all of the benefits and the risks associated with Weight Loss Surgery . When patients know what to expect before Weight Loss Surgery is performed, they are able to make realistic expectations for themselves. One issue that a patient may have is the lack of weight loss following their Weight Loss Surgery. There are five common reasons why a patient may not be losing weight after their bariatric procedure.


Reason 1: You are Not Eating Enough Calories

Yes, I know this is a mind stopper. It is hard to believe that not eating enough calories can contribute to not losing weight. After Weight Loss Surgery one of the major hunger hormones; ghrelin is removed so you don’t feel hungry and your stomach has just gone from the size of a flattened football to the size of your thumb. You have no desire to eat so you don’t. Many people think, the less I eat the faster I will lose weight. Unfortunately, not the case for many. When your body is not nourished properly, your body will start burning fat as well as muscle for energy.
