A gastric sleeve procedure surgically reduces the stomach to about 15 percent of its previous size. Since the stomach is smaller, people who have had gastric sleeve feel fuller faster and therefore, see a reduction in overeating.
Here are some facts on gastric sleeve surgery and dietary suggestions:
- Gastric sleeve surgery is so-called because the stomach resembles a sleeve afterward.
- The reduced stomach size makes it difficult for someone to overeat.
- The surgery’s success depends on a person’s willingness to stick to a healthy lifestyle.
- The gastric sleeve diet follows four distinct phases for getting back to a healthful eating pattern.
