When it comes to snacking, you have to be very careful as a weight loss surgery patient. There are some things that should be off limits as they don’t provide any nutritional value. Jerky is a perfect snack for a bariatric patient as it is low in carbohydrates but high in protein. I am a huge fan of Slim Jim but I knew there had to be a healthier choice out there. Luckily, I found a brand that offers tasty snacks with awesome stats!

Are you on the go a lot and don’t have time to cook? I know I am! I am constantly on the go and often times forget to make my lunch for work. I also don’t always have time to cook at night, which makes life after weight loss surgery challenging for me sometimes. Often when people forget their lunch, they go out for fast food at lunchtime. Unfortunately, this is not the best choice for bariatric patients as we can’t eat many things on fast food restaurant menus. There are certain foods we must make sure we are eating to stay healthy after weight loss surgery. These pre-made meals are perfect for bariatric patients!

BariatricPal’s Hot Chocolate Protein Drink is the perfect alternative to normal hot chocolate. At 80 calories, 3g sugar and 15g of protein, it is an amazing winter drink.

Protein! It is one of the most critical things needed after bariatric surgery because it supports healthy muscle function and metabolism. There are so many other benefits for eating a high protein diet, especially after weight loss surgery. Protein should be included in all of your meals after bariatric surgery and you should aim to get at least 80-100 grams per day.

Do you love the 100 grand candy bars? Me too! Unfortunately, as bariatric patients, candy should be off limits. Sugar is detrimental for weight loss surgery patients and things such as candy bars provide no nutritional value for us. We should be nourishing our bodies with high protein, low sugar foods. I am happy to report I have found a healthy version of the 100 grand candy!
