Focus on What You Drink

Focus on what you drink. Between meals, drink water or other low-calorie beverage options in place of drinks full of sugar and/or calories. As a meal, select a protein-rich beverage such as low-fat milk, low-fat Fairlife milk (an extra 5 grams of protein per cup and no lactose), ready-to-drink protein supplement, or a protein/fruit or veggie smoothie. Avoid carbonated beverages and alcohol for at least 6 months following your surgery—and then only drink them in limited amounts. Remember that your body responds differently to alcohol after surgery.
