Penn State Hershey Surgical Weight Loss Patient Success Story: Jenn from Quarryville, PA

Uploaded by PennStateHershey on 13.11.2012

To maintain success after bariatric surgery you really need to keep up with your protein
and keep up with your vitamins. I tell people this all the time, I have friends and even
neighbors who have had surgery and they get tired of hearing it from me but it’s true.
You know if you go into surgery thinking oh, I just need to do the shakes for a couple
months and then take Flintstone vitamins you’re not going to succeed. The weight is goanna
come back or you’re going to stall, your hair is goanna fall out, you know, you really
need to keep up with the protein; you need to give your body what it needs. You know,
you need to commit to the lifestyle changes, which is good nutrition first and foremost
and exercise and just maintain a positive outlook, and everything.
