Nutritional Requirements

So doing a lot of reading about gastric bypass, and the one question I had (for those that have gone through it) how do you manage your nutritional requirements? Given that your stomach is sown up (to hold about 1-cup of food) how are you ensuring you get all the vitamins/minerals you need?

Are you simply taking a daily vitamin? Vitamin water?

Eating balanced meals and snacks help and yes, vitamins. It's not that difficult long term. Only challenging early out. Frequent labs tell you the story.

Yep. You need to take daily vitamins and supplements for the rest of your life.
