Webinar: What Weight-Inclusive Dietitians Need to Know About Bariatric Surgery

What Weight-Inclusive Dietitians Need to Know About Bariatric Surgery

While intentional weight loss is not recommended in weight-inclusive practice, it is important to stay up to date with the information that is out there when it comes to weight, bodies, and health, including interventions like bariatric surgery. Additionally, many people who have undergone bariatric surgery in the past are becoming interested in a more inclusive approach to their health and well-being. This presentation will review some of the available evidence on bariatric-surgery outcomes, as well as provide practical information on a weight-inclusive approach to working with clients who have had, or are considering bariatric surgery.

We will discuss:

  • The available evidence on bariatric surgery outcomes and the state of bariatric surgery in Canada
  • How to support clients who are considering bariatric surgery without colluding with diet culture
  • Nutritional considerations when working with clients who have had bariatric surgery who are interested in a weight-inclusive approach to care
