The balloon is a valuable aid to help you build a new lifestyle and diet but it does not work by itself: changing your eating behavior will be the keystone of your success. The nutritionist or dietician will establish with you your personalized action plan from the first interview, even before the balloon is laid.
- During the first few days you will receive advice for a suitable liquid diet.
- As a second step, the nutritionist or dietician will establish a new diet plan that will take into account your needs in terms of calories and other nutrients.
This new diet will gradually become your “new lifestyle” and will stabilize the weight gained.
When monitoring your nutritionist or dietician, write down your meals and physical activities in a logbook to measure your progress.
The team of physicians and paramedics will be your allies in your approach: meet them regularly as the success of the ball will depend on your commitment to the support team and your ability to adopt a healthy lifestyle on a daily basis.
