Every patient undergoing a weight loss procedure at Digestive Health Institute has to follow a 7-day liquid diet routine before the surgery. Liquid diets are prescribed by the bariatric nutritionists and can also be provided to you from the SoulFuel Healthy Cuisines at the DHI centre.
Post-surgery, we take complete care of you through our Win-Life Club sessions. The WL Club is a group session, which our bariatric nutritionists conduct. They educate each and every patient, at a specified time period post surgery, on how to take care and get the best results out of your weight loss treatment. Every patient has to follow a transitional diet process which spans from a liquid diet to a semi-solid diet to a complete solid diet over a span of 30 days post surgery.
