Because of how restrictive and malabsorptive so many weight loss surgeries are, it’s important to take extra care of your nutrition post-surgery. Since most of the food consumed is bypassed in the body, many of the nutrients are not absorbed. Because of this, regular nutritional supplements and minerals are needed for optimal health.
Protein is the most important calorie you consume, that influences your particular metabolic rate. Quality protein helps you sustain muscle during your weight loss, improve fitness, antioxidant function, build good cholesterol levels, enhance insulin in the body, and build your immune system. A minimal target amount of protein is about ¾ of your ideal body weight in grams per day. Each gram of protein is 4 calories. Aim for about 30% of your calories to come from protein. The FDA believes that 50 grams of protein (per 2,000 calories diet) is a solid diet.
When going through the weight loss journey, you may find that you are having trouble eating enough protein to meet this goal. This is where protein samples in terms of bars, shakes, and smoothies come into place. Many companies offer free samples of their products. Here are just some of our favorites.
