Why should I not drink carbonated beverages after Roux-en Y Bypass?
Carbonated beverages will distend and stretch out the pouch and opening. This can lead to weight regain. Not to mention the caffeine, which is not that healthy. Most of these contain too much sugar also. Best thing is sugar free non-carbonated fluids. Unsweetened tea, green tea-diet. Vitamin water, water.
