Protein
A high protein intake is important following surgery to allow wounds to heal properly and to helpprevent protein deficiency. In order to meet your protein needs try to consume 100 grams of proteinper day following your surgery.Preparing protein foods in a “moist” way (e.g.- crock pot, roasted with marinade or low-fat gravy) willhelp improve tolerance of these foods. Well tolerated protein foods include: fish, cottage cheese,yogurt, eggs, and tofu.
Carbohydrate
Sugar
Too much sugar (full strength fruit juice, candy, cake, pie, cookies, etc.) can cause dumpingsyndrome. Read labels for sugar and avoid foods with more than 5 grams of sugar per serving.Do not eat foods containing any of the following types of sugars if listed as one of the first 3ingredients:
Sugar
Brown sugar
Corn sweeteners
Modified food starch
Honey
Powdered sugar
Fructose
Glucose
Sucrose
Dextrose
Maltose
MolassesWatch out for sugar-free products that contain sugar alcohols. These products are absorbed moreslowly and can cause dumping like symptoms, especially when eaten in excess.Avoid foods with ingredients ending in ‘ol’, such as; Sorbitol, Mannitol, Xylitol, Maltitol.
Starch
Starches (bread, pasta, rice, etc.) can be a problem after your surgery because these foods canbecome doughy and expand in the stomach, and block the outlet from the stomach to the smallintestine. Additionally, starches can fill up the stomach pouch and take space away from proteinfoods. Small amounts of starches can be eaten after surgery, but only after the protein of the mealhas been consumed.

Yogurt
Yogurt is a complete food in that it contains carbohydrate, and is a good source of both calcium andprotein. Yogurt’s soft texture is usually well-tolerated after surgery. To prevent dumping syndromefrom yogurt, chose a type that offers about 15-18 grams of “Total Carbohydrate” per 6-8 ounceserving.
Fluid
It is very important to drink at least 64 ounces of fluid each to prevent dehydration. Immediately aftersurgery, it will be difficult to drink 64 ounces because of the size of your stomach. To meet your fluidneeds you will have to sip fluids throughout the day. Try to drink 4-6 ounces every hour betweenmeals.
