Easy Protein for On the Go
Protein is at a premium on a post-op or weight loss diet. It’s critical for staying healthy and maintaining metabolism, but it can be hard to get enough, especially if you are always on the go. And, some protein supplements that are designed for busy people are high in sugar or other ingredients you don’t want.
The BariatricPal Store has you covered, though. We have a full range of meal replacements and protein shots that can get you closer to your protein goals wherever you are. They are low in carbs and sugar, convenient, and great-tasting. These are some options for easy protein on the go.
Meal Replacement Protein Shakes
When you need a serious hit of protein with some additional nutrients, look no further than BariatricPal Protein ONE. This protein powder is packed with nutrition and is easy to take on the go. Each serving has 150 calories, 27 grams of protein, and less than a gram of sugar. The shake also has 5 grams of fiber, which can help keep blood sugar stable to reduce feelings of hunger.
The shake is fortified with vitamins and minerals to help you get nutrients even if you are not sitting down to a full meal. Wherever you are, you can get a variety of nutrients and hit your nutrition goals even if you are on the go.
BariatricPal Protein ONE comes in three delicious flavors. The first is Creamy French Vanilla. It is familiar and comforting, but never boring. The second flavor is Double Chocolate Fudge. It is made with real cocoa powder and is rich and satisfying. Finally, there is Strawberry Delight. It is like a taste of late spring when strawberries are ripe and sweet, but it doesn’t have added sugar in it.
You can’t go wrong with any of the flavors, and you might do best to keep all of them on hand. That way, you can choose the one that suits your mood at that moment. The Variety Pack has all of them. BariatricPal Protein One comes in 15-serving tubs.
BariatricPal Clean Whey Protein Shake with Probiotics is another option for a meal replacement or snack to boost protein intake and get extra nutrients. It’s lower in calories than BariatricPal Protein ONE, making it a great choice for a snack. It has 110 calories.
Still, it has 25 grams of protein, or the amount in a serving of chicken or fish. That means you can get your protein anywhere. Just mix the powder into water or a favorite beverage, and enjoy your shake even more knowing that it is helping you stay on your diet.
Probiotics are healthy bacteria that can live in the gut. A healthy gut profile has been linked to metabolic health, and there are things you can do to stimulate your gut ecosystem. BariatricPal Clean Whey Protein Shake with Probiotics has 500 million CFU Bacillus coagulans, which is one of the more common probiotics.
Protein Shots have a lot of protein in a little package. That can be perfect for when you are on the go, since you can slip them into a pocket or purse easily. Proteinex 2Go Liquid Predigested 26-gram Protein Shots have 26 grams of protein in each 75 ml bottle.

Proteinex 2Go Liquid Predigested 26-gram Protein Shots come in delicious Strawberry and Watermelon flavors. You can find them in single bottles or in packs of 6 or 12 bottles. Have them straight or mix them into a food such as applesauce or apple juice.
Liquacel Liquid Protein is another choice for concentrated protein to have anywhere. Each 1-ounce pack has 16 grams of protein.
