Diet methods to assist weight loss

You name it: Keto, Paleo, Vegan, Atkins, and many more. There are so many types of diet plans out there, but they didn’t work on us before the surgery. Should we give it a try once more now that our body has changed? Which one do you think is the most effective method?

You mean after you’ve had weight-loss surgery?  If you’ve made it passed all phases of the diet, then going low-carb would probably be the easiest and most beneficial diet to work with a gastric procedure.  At least I think so.  Unless you’ve plateaued.  I can’t see much reason to diet again.

Everything in moderation – except before surgery, that philosophy didn’t work for me because I couldn’t moderate myself once I got going.  After surgery, it works great for me because I don’t feel like I’m doing without and my new stomach won’t allow me to binge.  It’s very easy to moderate my eating after having gastric sleeve surgery.

I read that most of those methods can help when you’re entering the stall phase, though I wonder if it will strain the body too much because they are mostly created with normal-sized stomaches in mind.

That’s what I thought as well, so I decided to ask. My weight loss is slowing down, so I’m preparing for the worst case. I know that some people reset their eating plan when the plateu starts, but I wonder if I can do something to prevent it by incorporating a few elements of these diet methods.
