Daily Meals After Bariatric Surgery We allow three small meals a day and in between, depending on the timeframe between each meal, if it’s greater than four hours, we tell them to have a small protein snack or a protein supplement.

So normally, we want them just to go back to their proper way of eating of three small meals a day. The number of meals we permit or allow our patients are three small meals with supported snacks of protein as needed. Not everyone needs a snack. There’s some that are fine with just eating their three meals.
