Bariatric Pyramid

Ever wonder if there was a food guide pyramid for someone who has undergone weight loss surgery. Take a look at the pyramid below for a guide pertaining to life after weight loss surgery. The bottom food groups of the pyramid focus on protein, fruits and vegetables. This pyramid is different than many with the foundation based on daily supplements, water intake and exercise. Does your intake compare with the recommendations based on the pyramid?
