Maximize Weight Loss – Calorie Free Fluids

Keep fluids calorie free.  Your surgery restricts calories from solid foods by limiting the amount of food you can eat at one time. It is not good at restricting calories from fluids. Sipping on higher calorie fluids can derail your efforts. 100% fruit juice, if consumed, should be limited to 6 oz. a day. Milk and/or protein drinks count as a meal or snack. Sugar sweetened beverages should be strictly avoided.  Alcohol can also contribute significantly to caloric intake and may slow weight loss or cause regain.
