Nutrition and Lifestyle


Regardless of the type of surgery you choose, you’ll need to work with your physician and a dietitian to construct a healthy diet plan to assure both weight loss and good nutrition.  You’ll be creating a new plan for your life, therefore it is important to follow it permanently for the sake of protecting your health.  At Placentia-Linda Hospital, our licensed dietician can teach you about healthy food choices and new methods of food preparation.


Undergoing weight loss surgery is a major life-changing experience.  You’ll have a whole new set of lifestyle guidelines for maintaining your weight loss and health goals.  In the years leading up to the surgery, you may have struggled with many ramifications of obesity including physical, medical, emotional and social.  The Weight Loss Program at Placentia-Linda Hospital can help you begin the healing process in these areas – we are here for you every step the way!

Post-Surgery & Ongoing Support

Weight loss surgery may help you meet your weight-loss, health and lifestyle goals.  However, once you’ve undergone surgery, you’ll need to learn some new habits to make sure you lose weight and keep it off.  Remember, this is NOT a diet, but rather a weight-loss tool to help you change your life.  The Weight Loss Surgery Program at Placentia-Linda Hospital offers ongoing counseling and support groups to help answer any questions, work through any challenges you may be facing and a chance to share successes you are experiencing that may help others in the group.

Your new life awaits!
