Your writing adds immense value to The NutriScape Project’s educational mission and places our writers as experts in the field. It can deliver you attention from your perfect clients so that they can connect—that’s what it’s all about. But first, let’s make sure this article is going to get the attention it deserves.

When Google Likes Your Article, Clients Find You

We want to make it easy to write great articles that get awesome levels of traffic.  That requires SEO.  SEO is the art and science of getting found on Google. It is a highly technical topic that most dietitians prefer not to tackle. And SEO is best done before any writing even takes place. 

Our specialist dietitian has already done much of the SEO work for you–researching and testing out the best keywords and heading structure to include to make your article show up in internet searches.


Coming up with the best keywords is tricky. Many of the keywords we would normally think of having either too much competition or too little search traffic. You will want to use the keyword/keyphrase in the first paragraph of your article and several more times.

According to our research, these are the best keyword(s) or keyphrase(s) to include in your article:

  • nutritional defeciencies after bariatric surgery
  • micronutrient defeciencies after bariatric surgery
  • bariatric surgery

Suggested Headings

Readers love easy reading! Google looks for readability and scanability, so headings are important. Headings make your article easy to scan and can also break up long blocks of text that tend to overwhelm your readers.

During the keyword research process, these heading ideas came up in the top-rated articles and searches. If these headings fit the topic you are writing about and the article you want to write, they would probably help the article rank well in Google searches. They are only suggestions, so if they don’t fit what you are writing, you will want to create something better. Here are the headings our SEO dietitian suggested for this article:

  • Bariatric surgery and long-term nutritional issues
  • Nutritional Deficiencies in Obesity and After Bariatric Surgery
  • Bariatric surgery: Postoperative nutritional management
  • Nutritional Deficiencies Post Bariatric Surgery: A Forgotten Area Impacting Long-Term Success and Quality of Life

Citrate vs. Carbonate after Bariatric Surgery

write about bariatric surgery

This is an excerpt from one of the listserves and an interesting topic for someone to write about:

Question about calcium…
In reading the article American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Integrated Health Nutritional Guidelines for the Surgical Weight Loss Patient 2016 Update: Micronutrients, I noticed that it does not specify between calcium carbonate and calcium citrate. It states “Calcium carbonate should be taken with meals. Calcium citrate may be taken with or without meals” But when I look at vitamins available and read protocols for other bariatric sites, it always emphasizes calcium citrate. I am new to bariatric needs, is this new/changing information? Are there any programs who recommend calcium carbonate as long as it’s with meals? Is there a difference if it’s a sleeve or a GB?
