Bariatric surgery is sometimes considered a taboo topic in weight-inclusive circles, with some fat activists likening it to “stomach amputation.” Unfortunately, this has created a knowledge gap in this area amongst weight-inclusive practitioners, at a time when more and more people (including those who have had bariatric surgery) are seeking care that focuses on health, not weight. This webinar seeks to answer the question of whether it is possible to provide weight-inclusive care for a procedure that is decidedly weight-centric in nature.
We will discuss:
- Nutrition considerations for patients/clients who have had bariatric surgery
- Addressing our patients/clients’ desire to lose weight in a weight-inclusive, client-centred fashion
- Whether intuitive eating and mindful eating have a role in post-bariatric-surgery care
