Question: How much water should I drink after weight loss surgery?
Answer: The surgeons at Rocky Mountain Associated Physicians (RMAP) recommend all weight loss surgery patients to be drinking a minimum of 64 oz. (8 cups) of water, but we prefer you to be well above that. Water helps with a multitude of ills: Dehydration, nausea, hunger, low energy of fatigue and kidney stones. When encountering a physical or emotional difficulty post weight loss surgery, often our answer will be to you is: Drink more water!
Bored with the bland taste of H2O? There are ways to spice it up! You can try adding diluted sugar free flavoring to your water, like Crystal Light, or Propel. You can also try squeezing lemon or lime juice into your water, or adding sliced cucumbers.
