A Breakfast Designed for Weight Loss
Our oatmeal is just what the bariatric surgeon ordered: high-protein and low-calorie. It’s a good treat whether you have the lap-band, gastric sleeve, or gastric bypass, and you can eat it as soon as you get to the Mushies or Pureed Foods diet.

Start Your Day Off Right
Some say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Many say protein is the most important nutrient of breakfast. We agree, and add another two requirements: it has to taste great and be quick to prepare. You can make our great-tasting instant oatmeal packets within minutes using the microwave or stove just by mixing them with water.
Mornings can be pretty rushed, but instant oatmeal won’t delay you too long. Keep a box in your pantry at home, or stick a few packets in your desk at work. You can use them as a mid-morning snack just by adding hot water from the break room at work. Armed with your delicious protein oatmeal, you won’t even be tempted by the doughnuts on the counter.
An Ideal Post-Workout Snack
Thinking of that nourishing bowl of oatmeal that’s coming up can motivate you to work a little harder during your workout. Sports nutrition experts agree that your perfect post-workout meal or snack should have a combination of protein and carbs. The protein restores your muscle mass, while the carbs replenish your fuel stores.
For a perfect post-workout snack, you could try a bowl of protein oatmeal with a source of carbs. That’s a combo that will fill your stomach for hours, and keep your metabolism revved up so you keep burning calories long after you stop moving. Consider a packet of protein oatmeal with a ½ banana, some berries or peaches, or even a serving of yogurt.
