Gastric Balloon

There is NO Orbera Gastric Balloon Diet!

After your Orbera Gastric Balloon procedure, it will not be long before you can start enjoying the benefits of your new weight loss device. While there is no “Orbera Gastric Balloon diet”, the week following your procedure is a time of adjustment and you will need to transition back to solid foods slowly.

Days 1 to 3

During the first few days, it is critical that you drink plenty of water and avoid eating any solid foods. You will be provided with detailed instructions to ensure health and well-being during this time. For the first three days, you will be restricted to a liquid diet.
Juices Milk Thin soups or broth Gelatins
Coffee Carbonated drinks Chocolate Ice cream

Day 4 and onward

After a few days on a liquid diet, you will be ready to begin the transition back to solid foods. It’s important to make the transition slowly. Listen to your body and do not rush the adjustment process. Your SmartShape dietitian will recommend beginning with softer solids, such as:
    check Oatmeal
    check Thicker soups
    check Fruit purées
