"An incredibly SMART, AMAZING, HANDSOME, SILLY KID with AUTISM ROCKS my entire WORLD." I asked my son once what he would tell people to help them know more about Autism. He said, "I would want them to know that even Albert Einstein had autism."
SADI is still widely unknown, and even with DS, the docs and nutritionists can't get it right on how we should eat or what supplements we need. They leave many of us on the road to malnutrition.
With a 300 cm common channel, you'll absorb much more fats (3x more) than a DSer will, so you may wish to be mindful about eating as much fat as the rest of us do. Just to be safe, I'd start with a strong DS vitamin regimen, such as what is recommended by vitalady.com. Don't put all of your trust into a designer bariatric formula vitamin. Their only significance is the price, and many of us watched our levels tank while we took them.

I think regular fat would still be fine but you will have to be more careful than those of us with a traditional DS. You will also see some people talking about high fat diets but I don't do that and wouldn't suggest it for a SADI.
Mostly the food plan is the same though. You still want to eat into the strengths of your surgery. High protein, low carb and then expand your menu's as you get close to a goal weight.
I wouldn't argue with a Nut pushing low fat in your case but I would take it with a grain of salt.
If you choose to follow a typical DS eating, remember that, in most cases, anything called "low fat" usually has added sugar, so start checking carb content. I would stay away from low fat foods. I never eat low fat anything.
