You’re sick and tired of dieting. I get it. That’s why it’s easy to justify the cost of the ReShape Balloon™ because you think this tool will do all the work for you. You have it implanted, you’ll eat less, and over time you’ll lose all your weight. It seems like a magic pill. Who then needs 12 months of coaching with a Dietitian if a gastric balloon can do all that?
You are probably eating much less than you did before your gastric balloon procedure. However, your eyes may not be used to seeing less on your plate. To make matters worse, dinner plate sizes continue to grow, making it easy to serve yourself much more than your stomach can handle.
During your ReShape Gastric Balloon implantation period, it’s extremely important to take the prescribed medications from your healthcare provider. Prescribed medications will include antispasmodics, antiemetics and pain relievers which are important to help manage post-procedure symptoms such as soreness and nausea.
As you are approaching the six month mark for your ReShape Balloon Procedure, it’s time to start planning for your ReShape Balloon removal. This is a significant milestone! The instructions that follow will help make sure the procedure goes smoothly and maintain your weight loss when the balloons are no longer in your stomach.
Experiences will vary, but the vast majority of our patients tell us that the smaller portion sizes they got used to while the balloon was inserted continue to satisfy them when the ReShape Balloon removal happens.
So will the ReShape Balloon help you lose weight if you only eat out? Possibly. But it will depend on how you approach the meal. Remember the weight loss balloon is only a tool to help you feel full faster and won’t order food for you.
Bone broths are soothing, nutrient-dense additions to add to your diet. They can be rich in protein, specifically gelatin and they also contain trace amounts of minerals like calcium, phosphorus and glycine. Glycine also supports digestion and so this broth is perfect to sip on after the first few days following your ReShape gastric Balloon procedure.
