So as the stomach pouch is a newly treated on the amount of food intake will be very less basically, the amount of calorie intake will be reduced. As the stomach pouch is smaller the absorption rate will be less and the part of the small intestine which supports calorie absorption has been removed so the calories and nutrients absorption will be less.
