Beyond Protein: More Products for Success for Bariatric Surgery Patients 0
Protein and fluids may be at the front of your mind when you are getting ready for or recovering from weight loss surgery, or following a serious weight loss diet. Getting enough of them can certainly help you lose more weight more healthily, but weight loss aids can come in other forms, too. The BariatricPal Store has products that can increase motivation, save time, and increase energy and metabolism during this important time in your life.
Everyone can use a hug when they are going home from surgery. What if that hug could not only give you an emotional boost, but also reduce the pain from your surgery wound? The Bari-Buddy Bear is uniquely designed to do both.
This supportive bear wears a shirt with an inspirational message of your choice: “A NEW BODY A NEW YOU A NEW LIFE” or “YOU ARE BARI SPECIAL.” It can serve as a reminder of your purpose.
Physically, the Bari-Buddy Bear can prevent pain as you are traveling home from the hospital after your surgery and as you recover. The shape is uniquely designed to support your abdomen as you are resting, and limit movement should you need to cough.
Healthy Restaurant Eating
You may be on a liquid or restricted diet now and for a while, but the time will come when you will want to or need to visit restaurants. Those restaurant meals can be oversized, and there is no reason to pay for food you cannot eat.
Instead, use the Bariatric Special Menu Request Card to get a meal that makes sense on your weight loss surgery diet. Depending on the restaurant, the card may allow you to order a half-sized meal or a meal from the kids’ or senior’s menu, or you could get a discount at buffets. A number of national chain restaurants honor the card, and you can ask your local favorite restaurants if they will, too.
It is simple, but Lip Moisturizer is so important when you need it. Your body needs extra fluid after weight loss surgery, and takes it wherever it can get it from, including your lips. In the hospital and beyond, you may notice your lips getting excessively dry.
This Lip Moisturizer is 95% organic and 100% natural. It has the pleasant flavor of vanilla, and contains organic oils but no harmful parabens or petrolatum. Choose from blue or pink colors.
The BariatricPal Store has everything you need when getting ready for bariatric surgery and recovering from it, from liquid protein and bariatric vitamins to kitchen tools and recipe books. You may not realize the array of products that can make your weight loss journey easier tools until you see them, so browse The BariatricPal Store today to see how you can take another step towards success.
Fabulous Finds for a Healthy Father’s Day 0
Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 16. Dad deserves to eat what he loves, but he also deserves to be healthy. The BariatricPal Store has great-tasting, weight loss-friendly items you can feel good about giving to Dad this year. Here are a few ideas.
Give Dad what he really wants: bacon. Just skip the heart attack that goes with it. With Kay’s Naturals “Pass the Peas” Protein Snacks, Dad gets a dose of heart-healthy chickpeas, but will never know it. Instead, these Maple Bacon-flavored snacks taste sweet, salty, and, well, manly.
Each ounce has 90 calories and 0 grams of saturated fat. In comparison, an ounce of bacon has 153 calories and 12 grams of saturated fat! Each serving of “Pass the Peas” Protein Snacks has 6 grams of protein, the same as in an ounce of chicken breast.
How can you maximize your gains at the gym? Getting in some protein before and after a workout can boost energy so you can work harder, and speed muscle recovery so you can hit the gym tomorrow, too. A protein shake can do the trick, and Protein One delivers the taste and nutrients you need.
BariatricPal Protein One has 27 grams of protein and almost no sugar, but it tastes fantastic and is easy to use by mixing it with water, another beverage, or food such as oatmeal, yogurt, or cottage cheese. Try it once or twice a day before or after a workout or as a meal replacement or snack to get 28 essential vitamins and minerals and 5 grams of fiber per serving. It comes in Chocolate, Vanilla, and many more flavors. You can also add Unflavored to almost anything.
It may not be quite the thing to have on Father’s Day, but there is sure to be a day when Dad needs a hearty meal - now! Beef Stroganoff with Noodles is just one of many BariatricPal Protein Entrees with great taste and a load of protein, but fewer than 300 calories and no unnecessary starches.
These entrees are ready in minutes and are a meal in themselves, so Dad can easily choose them instead of ordering in. Spaghetti and Meatballs, Green Pepper Steak, and Chicken Enchilada Verde are just a few of the other options.
Guys may love their meat and potatoes, but they may have a secret sweet tooth, too. To satisfy it, what about cookies? What about an entire bag of cookies? My Protein Bites cookies come in bags of 3 satisfying cookies. Eat one for 90 calories and 2 grams of added sugar, or have all three and get 24 grams of protein.
Depend on classics such as Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Raisin, and Chocolate Chip, or try Lemon Drops or Birthday Cake. They come in single packs or 8-packs. You can also get the Variety Pack so Dad has the cookies he needs for any mood.
Show the father figures in your life how much you care by giving them something they love and is convenient, but that is healthy and good for weight loss, too. It is possible when you shop at The BariatricPal Store. Happy Father’s Day!
