Liquid Protein Diet to Start the New Year
Happy New Year from The BariatricPal Store! It is a popular time to get back on track after the holidays or start your weight loss journey with a clean slate. Also popular is a liquid diet to reset your system or put yourself on pace to get weight loss surgery soon. Either way, you can keep your diet high in protein and low in boredom with these protein ideas.
Protein shakes are the traditional go-to options when you are on a high-protein liquid diet. These low-sugar, high-protein shakes range from classic Chocolate and Vanilla flavors to novel choices such as Iced Latte and Caramel Macchiato. If you are feeling fruity, opt for a creamy Protein Smoothie with mango, strawberry or banana flavors instead.
Protein Hot Cocoa
Protein Hot Cocoa is a warming alternative to a protein shake, and it is one of the best ways to forget that you are on a diet. Indulge in a chocolatey treat with marshmallows or a hint of Irish Cream, Amaretto, Cinnamon, or other flavors. You will only be getting 2 grams of sugar and 80 calories while you take in 15 grams of protein.
Protein Soups hit the spot when you need a savory break from those sweet flavors. We have all the classics, from familiar Chicken Pasta to comforting Tomato. For a more decadent meal that only tastes off-limit, try Cream of Mushroom or Broccoli Cheddar. These and other flavors have only 80 to 120 calories, and 15 grams of protein.
