The For Life™ Diet Plan was designed especially for post-operative bariatric patients who may have regained weight or have not reached their weight-loss goal and need to “get back on track”. The For Life™ Diet Plan was written by Dr. Lillian Craggs-Dino, a practicing bariatric dietitian, for Bariatric Fusion® using the superlative products offered by Bariatric Fusion®, and is appropriate for those with Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (GBP), Sleeve Gastrectomy (SG), or Adjustable Gastric Band (AGB). The For Life™ Diet Plan doesn’t just give a listless menu plan. The uniqueness of the For Life™ Diet Plan is that it provides a template that will guide patients to incorporate a variety of foods they tolerate and enjoy in the proper portions. The For Life™ Diet Plan also shows a patient when to eat foods at specific times to maximize weight loss while maintaining muscle mass and encouraging healthful eating behaviors.
The For Life™ Diet Plan was created for the specific nutritional needs of the post-operative bariatric patient and walks a patient through 4 dietary stages:
Stage 1 | Preparation (10-14 days)
Stage 2 | Functional Weight Loss (10 weeks)
Stage 3 | Transition (12 weeks)
Stage 4 | Maintenance
The For Life™ Diet Plan is designed to maximize the effectiveness of the surgical tool that assists patient in losing weight and gaining and maintaining their health status. Before beginning any diet program, please consult with your physician and bariatric health team.
