FANTELLI PATEIRO, Laura et al. Nutritional graph for Argentina's bariatric population. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2014, vol.29, n.6, pp.1305-1310. ISSN 1699-5198.

Introduction: A food graph is a guide that helps individuals controlling and improving their feeding quality; it provides recommendations on what should a particular population eat with a correct selection of the nutrients to be consumed. Objective: The aim of this publication was to create a food education tool for bariatric surgery patients in the long run of the post-surgical period. Methods: Graduates in nutrition and physicians specialized in nutrition were invited to participate in workshops at a meeting that took place in 2011. The scientific bases were the First Argentinean Consensus on Nutrition in Bariatric Surgery and the Feeding Guidelines for Normal Argentinean Population. In this way, these guidelines are adapted to the Argentinean population submitted to bariatric surgery, together with the experience of the healthcare professionals. Result: This yielded an oval-shaped food graph, an adaptation of the Feeding Guidelines for Normal Argentinean Population, 12 messages or recommendations focused on individuals with bariatric surgery, a recommended menu with a mean energetic value of 1,273 calories per day, 145 g of carbohydrates, 76 g of proteins and 43.2 g of fat; 45.5% of the calories coming from carbohydrates, 24% from proteins, and 30.5% from fat, with 1,160 mg of calcium.
