How Soon Should I See a Dietitian After Bariatric Surgery?

How many times should I see a dietitian? I think it’s a great idea to see a dietitian before and after your procedure because he or she will help you keep your calorie count intact. We would like to see them at least 6 to 8 weeks after the surgery, and then as you start getting and reaching goals, you can see them less and less. What I mean by that is because by the time you lose more weight and now you learn how to eat, you become less reliant on your nutritionist or dietitian.
