Nutritional inadequacies among post-bariatric patients during COVID-19 quarantine in Sao Paulo, Brazil
Investigate dietary habits and
food intake during COVID-19 quarantine among recently operated patients.
Main results are indicative of inappropriate nutritional intake during COVID-19 quarantine in postoperative bariatric patients. We observed that many patients failed to meet the recommended protein intake (89.2%) along a relatively high intake of ultra-processed foods (~1/4 of the diet). Our data suggest the need for the implementation of strategies to extend nutritional care to at-risk patients during social distancing.
