Listen to Your Stomach After Weight Loss Surgery

Eat slowly and “listen” to your stomach.

This includes learning to eat slowly and to chew more completely. The rationale for this suggestion is to avoid “plugging” and possibly throwing up and to develop the ability to identify early signs of fullness. You want to learn to stop eating at the first signs of fullness rather than waiting until you’re stuffed. This will help you avoid overeating and possibly regaining weight over the long-term.
