So, you’re going to have an operation….

Regardless of which surgical procedure you’re about to have, there will be certain preparations beforehand. For instance, if you are overweight, your doctor, or surgeon, will probably recommend that you follow a diet/weight-loss programme pre-surgery. And, of course, there are multiple reasons why it’s beneficial to lose weight before an operation. Firstly, many surgical procedures come with a higher risk of complications if you are overweight. With this in mind, anything you can do to reduce the risks, such as losing weight beforehand is a positive step.

Benefits of Weight Loss Before an Operation

During any pre-op consultations, your surgeon will explain all about your procedure. He or she may also advise you to lose some weight in advance of your operation. But why? Well, firstly obese or overweight patients undergoing surgery have a higher morbidity rate (risk of death). Secondly, the risks of post-operative wound infections are higher if you’re overweight. You are also more likely to suffer from blood clots. Additionally, for overweight patients, the expected recovery time after an operation is longer. As most people are aware, overweight people don’t tolerate a general anaesthetic as well as someone of the correct weight. With these factors in mind, it’s understandable that surgeons can be reluctant to operate on obese patients.

Shrink The Liver

Anyone opting for weight-loss surgery, either Gastric Band, Bypass, or Sleeve, will need to follow a special diet in the weeks before their surgery. The diet, if followed correctly, will achieve two objectives. Firstly, the patient will lose weight before their operation, which is always beneficial. But in addition, it will dramatically shrink the size of their liver, which is likely to be unhealthily large and fatty. One of the main benefits of shrinking the liver is that it lies in front of the stomach, so the surgeon needs to hold it back out of the way to carry out the procedure safely. We also have a dedicated page: “5 Reasons to Try a Diet Before Weight-Loss Surgery.”

Losing weight ahead of Orthopaedic Surgery

We have a dedicated web page on this site explaining why it’s beneficial to lose weight before undertaking any orthopaedic operation. You can visit it here. We are pleased that clients are often referred to us by their orthopaedic surgeons from around the world, because they need help to lose excess weight before their operation. Most people are generally aware of the benefits of pre-surgery weight loss, especially before orthopaedic surgery. For instance, the reduction in recovery time and risk of wound infection can be dramatic.

Post Orthopaedic Surgery Weight Management

Whilst maintaining any weight loss achieved should be viewed in a positive light, its importance is particularly elevated following orthopaedic operations. It is a sad fact, but many patients facing orthopaedic surgery are overweight, often as a result of lack of mobility. But, maintaining the weight loss following both hip and knee replacement operations, is vital to the long-term success of the procedure.

Lack of Mobility Post Surgery

The lack of general mobility post surgery is often a major factor in weight gain. A study published in the University of Delaware journal, “Osteoarthritis & Cartilage,” stated that 66 percent of patients gain about 14 pounds within two years of surgery. This added weight applies pressure on the recovering hip/knee, increasing the likelihood of re-injuring it, or hurting the healthy knee. This is why it is so important for patients’ long-term health to balance their nutritional intake, adopt healthy eating habits, and remain active after orthopaedic surgery.

Pre Cardiac Surgery Diets

If you Google Pre Cardiac Surgery Diet, you will find yourself overwhelmed with options. The Scared Heart Diet, The 3-Day Cardiac Diet, or The Twelve Day Heart Foundation Diet, are just three options. Of course they all set out to deliver the same result, Pre-Surgery Weight Loss. Heart surgery is one of the most critical types of operations that can be carried out on the human body. To provide the optimum conditions for a successful procedure and outcome, preoperative and postoperative guidelines must be observed. One of those guidelines pertains to the patient’s diet.

Pre-Surgery Weight-Loss Options

So you accept that it is in your interest to lose some weight before your operation. But what are your options? As you probably know, deciding which dieting approach to go for can be daunting. You can choose Low Fat, Low Carb, Meal Replacement, Soup Diet, or maybe try the Atkins, or South Beach Diet. The selection is never-ending. The title of this page suggested fast pre-surgery weight loss. However, as Weight-Loss Specialists, we certainly don’t advocate a “quick fix” option. Having any operation puts stress on the body. So, it’s important to make sure that you are well-nourished before your procedure, to help reduce the recovery time afterwards.

Weight Loss Before an Operation

It can be extremely unhealthy to lose weight too quickly at any time. But this is especially so, just before an operation. A review of several studies concluded that people who achieve really drastic weight loss via meal replacement diets before an operation don’t have any fewer complications than obese patients whose don’t lose any weight beforehand. Maybe this is because extreme dieters can end up suffering from malnutrition, which will affect their immune system during the recovery period. So, our advice is to choose a dieting method that provides steady, healthy and sustainable weight loss, both before and after surgery. Read on for more information….

Below is a selection of weight-loss tips that everyone can start using straight away. And, if you enroll in the My Weigh Less Course, you will learn many more of our helpful tips and techniques about how to achieve successful, permanent weight loss.

Tip No. 1 – Only Eat When You’re Hungry!

This has to be our number one, golden rule, when it comes to achieving successful weight loss. In our experience, most overweight people eat for many different reasons, other than physical hunger. But, if you allow your emotions to control your eating habits, then it is unlikely that you will be able to control your weight as a result. So, before you reach for anything to eat, stop and ask yourself first if you physically NEED to eat, or you just WANT to…

Tip No. 2 – Use a Smaller Plate!

You’ve probably heard this many times before, but it’s a fact that people who use larger plates tend to eat more food than those who eat from smaller plates. No doubt you know about the power of optical illusions. But are you aware of just how much more generous the same size portion of food appears, when presented on a smaller plate, instead of a larger one? Have a look at the image below. It’s known as the Delboeuf optical illusion. If you stick to our mantra, “always go for quality over quantity”, then you will definitely lose weight much more easily.

Delboeuf Optical Illusion with food

Tip No. 3 – Drink a Glass or Two of Water Before Your Meal!

Reduce Your Calorie Intake by over 20%, with almost with no effort! Research results, published by Harvard Medical showed that people who drank two large glasses of water, just before eating, consumed, on average, around 20% less food compared with when they didn’t drink anything before they ate. This is possibly as a result of the stretching and fullness sensation in the stomach.

Tip No. 4 – Eat Slowly and Mindfully!

A growing number of studies have consistently found a correlation between speed of eating and weight, so it is officially accepted now that faster eaters are definitely more likely to become overweight. Studies have also shown that people are much more likely to eat more when their eating is mindless, as opposed to mindful. So, make meal times an occasion by sitting down at a table, with no distractions. Then eat slowly and savour every mouthful. You will naturally eat less food and also find it easier to lose weight as a result!

Tip No. 5 – Stay Away From Sugar and Highly Processed Foods!

It’s a fact that sugar and highly processed foods have addictive properties! So much so, that many people find that once they start eating these foods, they literally can’t stop. And, of course, if you’re making such poor food choices, this in turn will make it almost impossible for you to lose weight. So, our advice is to choose healthy, unprocessed foods and limit the amount of sugar you consume. As a result, you will have far more control over how much you eat and also how much weight you can lose.

Tip No. 6 – Eat Your Favourite Foods on the Plate First!

You may not be aware of how important this tip is, but the order in which you eat your food can actually have a big impact on how much you consume! It’s quite common for overweight people to “save the best til last” when eating. In other words they only eat their favourite food right at the end. It’s not so surprising then, that they also tend to eat everything on their plate, regardless of how uncomfortably full they feel. Because, of course, they don’t want to miss out on the “best bit”!

However, our advice is to eat your favourite things first. Not only will you enjoy it more, but it’s also much easier to stop when you’ve eaten just the right amount and leave the rest on the plate. Read our page around Eating Cake, and Getting Thin Here
