What does a “bariatric” diet consist of?

Usually referring to the diet followed after bariatric surgery, this consists of a gradual progression of diet consistency from liquid to puréed to soft to regular as the new stomach pouch adjusts to food. Avoiding caffeine, carbonated drinks, gas-producing food as well as sugary drinks and other high-sugar foods is recommended, in order to avoid unpleasant side effects and ensure foods chosen allow adequate intake for healing and long-term health.
