The Maintenance Phase
Congratulations, you have successfully made it through your weight management program, the pre-op liquid diet, your surgery, and your 1-month clear liquid diet. You are on the path to a new and exciting you. What is important from here on out is that you use the knowledge that you have gained over the past few months and understand that your food choices and your supplementation are extremely important. This phase is a life-long commitment of taking care of yourself.
Continuing to get the protein and vitamins your body needs is essential to maintaining your weight loss for life. Exercising, rationing your food, eating healthy, and continuing to get the protein and minerals your body needs are major factors that will allow you to reach your ideal weight and maintain it.
