If you have recently undergone weight loss surgery, you may be on the lookout for some quick and easy recipes to support you in your journey to a better you.
Bariatric patients should follow a strict diet that includes the right amount of protein, fat, sugar and calories for weight loss success. There are three stages of eating after bariatric surgery, including liquids, soft foods and solids. We’ve included some of our favourite recipes, all of which have great nutritional values, taste delicious and are quick and easy to whip up.
Immediately after Bariatric Surgery
Those who have undergone bariatric surgery are required to have a diet of liquids upon returning home. This is one of the most challenging aspects of weight loss surgery, though it doesn’t have to be full of boring foods and feeling hungry.

Mid-way through Bariatric Surgery healing
Those who do not experience any issues whilst eating fluids can quickly progress onto soft foods. This stage incorporates smooth, pureed and soft solids. Typically a patient will eat soft foods for around 2-6 weeks after surgery.
Long Term Post Bariatric Surgery
Once you are able to tolerate a range of different soft foods, you can move onto stage 3; eating the foods that will be a part of your diet for life. This often occurs around 8-16 weeks post operation, though it varies between everyone.
