Will I ever be able to eat normally again? Many patients worry that their social world will negatively change after a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy. This fear, although completely normal, is totally unfounded. After a sleeve procedure, patients return to a completely normal diet over time. The main differences are portion control and lack of hunger and cravings. Patients will typically eat much less than prior to surgery, and they will not experience the same hunger and cravings that caused them to eat the unhealthy foods. Thus, patients’ eating habits will change, but for the better! In fact, patients report enjoying date nights and social gatherings more after surgery because they are able to spend more chatting with their friends and family rather than eating unhealthy foods.
