3 Healthy Recipes to Up Your Protein Intake
Eating healthfully is essential after bariatric surgery. Your stomach is smaller now, but your body still needs lots of nutrients, so it is important to choose the right foods. One of the most critical concerns for post-bariatric patients is adequate protein intake. Your body needs protein to build muscle and to help you heal after surgery. If you aren’t eating enough protein you can feel fatigued, weak and suffer from muscle pain and hair loss.
Planning meals that are healthy and high in protein can be daunting, but keeping up your protein intake doesn’t have to be a challenge. Check out some recipes that are protein packed, simple, and delicious!
