Happy New Year from The BariatricPal Store! Formal New Year’s Resolution or not, weight loss in 2019 is sure to be on your list. The trick to success is having a plan and putting the components together. Here are some strategies to help you stay on track and hit your goals this year.
I will get enough protein.
Protein fills you up, supports lean muscle mass, and promotes a healthy immune system and faster recovery after bariatric surgery. There is no reason not to get enough, whether you need liquids or solids, or prefer sweet or savory tastes. Choose bars, shakes, cookies, breakfast and lunch and dinner entrees, soups, and even gummies to boost your intake. Don’t forget to pick up a protein blender bottle if you need one to mix up your protein powder on the go.
I will stay healthy.
You will have a harder time losing weight if you develop vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Common deficiencies, such as in iron, B vitamins, vitamin D, calcium, and more, can sideline you or interfere with your weight loss in one or more of the following ways.
- Slower metabolism.
- Greater injury risk.
- More infections.
Bariatric vitamins are designed to prevent deficiencies as you focus on eating for weight loss. Choose your favorite forms, such as liquid, capsules, patches, and chewables.
I will stay hydrated.
Hydration 101: carry around a Water Bottle with you to remember to drink all day. Fluids help increase metabolism and energy, while preventing dehydration headaches. If plain water does not do the trick, consider Sipping Broth or Acid Free Coffee with Calorie-Free Creamer to break up the monotony.
I will eat great food.
