“6 Daily” Meal Plan for Steady Weight Loss (1 Week Plan)
The 6 Daily Meal Plan can help you lose weight at a moderate rate. It is designed for anyone who is looking to lose weight, especially patients who are eating solid foods after gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, lap-band, or another type of weight loss surgery. Each day on the plan has three small high-protein meals and three high-protein snacks.
Why should you go for it? Well, because your body goes through a lot of stress after bariatric weight loss surgery. Patients are limited to eating liquid meals that have one goal - fulfill the body’s nutrition requirements and help recover quicker. And as one of the most effective and safe ways to lose weight, many people opt for it as their go-to solution.
When you’re dieting using our meal plans, such as the 6 Daily, your body gets lean, efficient protein and all the healthy fats and carbs it needs. It helps incredibly with all the ingredients that might impact or in any way change how your body heals and recovers, and aims to provide valuable meals that will keep you saturated.
This specific dieting plan comes with a combination of liquids and solid foods that won’t put too much stress on your body, and won’t hold it back as it aims to recover from the surgery.
Aside from the plan itself, we’ll also include information on how much calories and protein each meal has, so you can plan your dieting and keep track of everything.
The 6 Daily Meal Plan includes:
- Lean sources of protein.
