In this episode of Hey Plant Trainers, we answer a question about eating plant-based/vegan after having weight loss surgery, specifically VSG (Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy). People are having weight loss surgeries more and more these days, but many of them think that the surgery alone is the solution. After the surgery it is just as important to eat well in order to sustain a healthy lifestyle and lose the necessary weight while staying healthy.

Here is Autumn’s question: “Good Day Plant Trainers! I had weight loss surgery (VSG) in June 2015 and then decided to go plant based in November. My weight-loss surgeon is worried I am not getting enough protein (insert eye roll) or omega 3 and told me I must eat salmon 2-3 times per week or I am going to get really sick. I feel better than I ever have & I do not want to eat any animal products! There is so little information out there on people who go vegan/plant-based after weight loss surgery, do you have any info or tips on the subject? The only thing I have noticed is that instead of eating 2-3 large meals a day I graze from 9am-6pm, but on all good stuff 🙂 my coworkers say my desk looks like a garden or farmers market. So do you think I am doing this the right way? By the way I am down 60lbs have about 45-50 more to go! P.S. Love the podcast!
