The Protein Powerhouse: Your Bariatric Journey’s Best Friend – Bariatric Edition

Greetings, Bariatric Warriors!


Whether you’re on the cusp of a life-changing bariatric surgery or navigating the post-op landscape, there’s one nutritional hero that deserves a spotlight: Protein! Think of it as your sidekick on this incredible journey towards a healthier, happier you.


Why Protein, You Ask?


  1. Muscle Marvels:
    • Pre-op or post-op, maintaining muscle mass is crucial. Protein, the muscle-building maestro, takes center stage. It ensures that as you shed the pounds, you’re preserving the precious muscle that keeps you strong and vibrant.
  1. Weight Loss Wingman:
    • For those in the pre-op phase, adequate protein intake can help with weight loss even before surgery. Post-op, it’s your ally in maintaining a healthy weight. Protein-packed meals keep you feeling full longer, helping you resist the temptation of those less-than-healthy snacks.
  1. Wound Healer Extraordinaire:
    • After surgery, your body goes into superhero mode, healing and recovering. Protein swoops in as the wound healer, aiding in the repair and regeneration of tissues. It’s like the magic potion your body needs for a speedy recovery.

How Much Protein, You Wonder?

  • The ideal protein intake varies, but a general guideline for bariatric patients is about 60-80 grams per day. This may differ based on individual needs, so consult your nutritionist for personalized advice.

Enter the Bariatric Expert Protein Powder: Your Super Shake!

Now, let’s talk about a secret weapon – the Bariatric Expert Protein Powder. Picture it as the superhero cape for your daily protein intake:

  1. Pure Power:
    • Packed with 26 grams of protein per serving, this powder is a powerhouse. It’s like having a protein-packed meal without the fuss.
  1. Digestive Dynamo:
    • With Prohydrolase® for Protein Digestion, this powder ensures that your body absorbs and utilizes every bit of that protein goodness. No wasted potential here!
  1. Sweetened with Stevia:
    • No need to compromise on taste. It’s sweetened with stevia, keeping it delicious without piling on the sugars.
  1. Perfectly Sized:
    • Designed with your bariatric pouch in mind, it’s just the right size. Say goodbye to food waste and hello to convenience.
