Damn, I Need a Drink after Weight Loss Surgery

Okay, go ahead and have one. LOL – I had you, didn't I?  You can't drink alcohol. You can't drink alcohol. You can't drink alcohol.

I'm done now. Seriously, you can do anything you want after weight loss surgery, but is it for the best? Your doctor will encourage you to not drink alcohol for quite a bit after surgery, most likely, never again. This really means that if you a firm believer in the idea that “AA is for quitters”, then weight loss surgery is not for you.

There are many reasons you should not drink any beverage containing alcohol after bariatric surgery. First of all, alcohol is very high in calories, and that's one thing you don't need in weight loss, especially when the calories are meaningless. Alcohol interferes with any prescription drugs you may be taking and also increases the risks of gastrointestinal problems.

Equally important, as your body is trying to heal, it needs a great deal of vitamins and minerals to sustain equilibrium and help the healing process. The presence of alcohol is in your body makes it harder for your body to pull out vitamins and minerals from the food you intake. Knowing all this, do you still want a drink?

Once you have your surgery, your body will not be able to break down alcohol as quickly as before. This means that even though you may drink less; you're likely to get more intoxicated than ever. What happens when you get drunk or high? The munchies. Does empty calories and junk food sound like ingredients to a good, weight management plans?

You've finally decided to change the way you live and eat. The last thing you need is a possible addiction. Everybody can tell you what to do, but that doesn't mean you have to do it. At the end of the day, you should do what you honestly know is best for you.

You may think you need a drink, and yes, you do. It's a big fat glass of water. Feel free to throw in a pack of Crystal Light or something fat free for flavor. Enjoy!
