Bariatric dietitian services are specialised nutrition services tailored to individuals who have undergone or are considering weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery. Bariatric dietitians are accredited practising dietitians with experience and expertise in providing nutritional guidance and support to individuals before and after bariatric surgery. These services typically encompass a range of offerings designed to help individuals achieve and maintain their weight loss goals, optimize their nutrition, and manage any potential nutritional deficiencies or complications that may arise post-surgery. Bariatric dietitian services may include:

  1. Pre-surgery Counseling: Bariatric dietitians work with individuals who are considering weight loss surgery to provide education and guidance on pre-surgery dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, and nutritional requirements to prepare them for the procedure.
  2. Post-surgery Nutrition Planning: After bariatric surgery, the digestive system undergoes significant changes, impacting nutrient absorption and dietary tolerance. Bariatric dietitians develop personalized nutrition plans tailored to the specific needs of each individual post-surgery, ensuring they receive adequate nutrients while supporting weight loss and minimizing complications.
  3. Nutritional Education: Bariatric dietitians educate individuals on the dietary guidelines and recommendations following bariatric surgery, including portion control, meal timing, hydration, and nutrient-dense food choices. They provide practical tips and strategies to help clients navigate the dietary changes associated with bariatric surgery.
  4. Supplement Guidance: Bariatric surgery can affect nutrient absorption, leading to potential deficiencies in vitamins and minerals. Bariatric dietitians assess individual nutrient needs and provide recommendations for appropriate supplements to prevent deficiencies and support overall health and well-being.
  5. Behavioral Support: Bariatric dietitians offer behavioral support and counseling to help individuals address emotional eating, develop healthy eating habits, and make sustainable lifestyle changes to support long-term weight loss success.
  6. Monitoring and Follow-up: Bariatric dietitians monitor clients’ progress, provide ongoing support, and make adjustments to nutrition plans as needed based on individual needs, weight loss goals, and metabolic changes post-surgery.

Overall, bariatric dietitian services play a crucial role in helping individuals achieve successful weight loss outcomes, optimize their nutrition, and improve their overall health and well-being following bariatric surgery.

Having weight loss surgery can have an impact on your long term Nutrition. Taking into account there are many types of surgery you can have…

Types of Bariatric Surgery

Knowing how to eat and what to eat before, during and after surgery is essential. Consulting with a dietitian before, during and after weight loss surgery becomes a journey you take to learn and adapt to change your body and your life into the person you wish to become, or the “new you”, a healthier version of your current self. 


Losing weight prior to surgery with the help of very low calorie shakes, or soups or bars will help you and your surgeon, by reducing the volume and size of the liver. This weight loss prior to surgery can then reduce some of the risk associated with this type of surgery.

Lots of people who have weight loss surgery can also lose their way, or fall back into old diet and lifestyle habits without having regular dietitian follow ups or check in’s, after having had weight loss surgery. 

Making that choice to have regular check up’s with Craig can prove invaluable by helping you maintain the weight lost, prevent weight gain through portion control, having adequate protein intake, and reducing your risk of developing common nutritional deficiencies.
