Nutrition Program at Mexico Bariatric Center

Mexico Bariatric Center® offers its nutritional support program as a standard in its all-inclusive package at no extra cost. While other competitors have no nutrition program or they charge extra for it, MBC includes this vital component for patients’ long-term success.

The key factors of any successful weight loss procedure are the dietary, behavior and lifestyle changes.

Mexico Bariatric Center’s Nutrition Program is tailored around our patients traveling to Mexico to undergo weight loss surgery. Our complete nutrition care is provided to MBC patients with direct access to dietary requirements, meal planning, individualized programs, as well as health and wellness coaching.  We are very passionate about helping others overcome obesity and seek a healthier life.

About Our Diet + Nutrition Program

Our nutrition program covers pre-op and post-op Bariatric Surgery diets to assist patients in each phase. Bariatric surgery combined with a nutrition program aids in higher weight loss success, in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle.

Kristian Nutritionist at MBC

Nutrition care is an amazing tool you have when you undergo weight loss surgery with Mexico Bariatric Center. Not only do we enjoy getting to know our patients and forming a relationship, but we also want you to feel comfortable throughout the entire process.

It is extremely important to us to share our knowledge of bariatric nutrition with our patients not only through the post-op recovery period but long term to assure they have continuous support and are successful in keeping the weight off.

We have developed our own line of bariatric vitamins that matches and exceeds ASMBS guidelines. They come in soft-chew, chewable, and drinkable forms to fit your needs. Our aftercare program also includes live nutrition webinars where both non-patients and patients can come to ask questions and get more information.
