Frequently Asked Questions

Why is nutrition important in the treatment of obesity?

The importance of nutrition in the treatment of obesity lies in its direct influence on the metabolic and hormonal processes that regulate energy balance. An adequate diet not only controls caloric intake, but also modulates satiety, thermogenesis and fat oxidation, influencing weight loss. In addition, a balanced diet improves insulin sensitivity, reduces systemic inflammation and mitigates cardiovascular risk factors associated with obesity. Evidence-based nutrition is an essential component in the comprehensive management of obesity, promoting sustainable lifestyle changes and metabolic health.
If undergoing bariatric intervention, nutrition can help patients lose weight in a controlled manner prior to surgery, which can reduce the risk of complications during surgery and improve metabolic response to the procedure.
After bariatric surgery, nutrition becomes even more crucial due to the drastic reorganization of the digestive system. Adaptation to the new gastrointestinal anatomy requires specialized attention to nutrient intake. Malabsorption of certain nutrients is common after surgery, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies if not properly managed.
In summary, nutrition is critical in the management of obesity, both before and after bariatric surgery-if applicable-because of its influence on preparation for surgery, postoperative recovery, and prevention of nutritional deficiencies. An evidence-based nutritional approach is essential to ensure safe and sustainable weight loss and to maintain long-term health in patients with obesity undergoing bariatric surgery.
