A Girl Needs Options: Protein

Bariatric Diet, Weighing In With Whit

One vital part of the pre-op and post-op diet when having any bariatric procedure is protein. It can get old real quick if you only have a couple options! This is a preview into my protein options {it grows almost weekly – a girl needs options!}.

The key ingredient in protein needed by bariatric patients is whey protein isolate. You also want to find one that offers at least 20g of protein and approximately 10 g {or less} of carbs per serving. That can really limit powder options, but luckily they continue to come out with more and more options.

Alani Nu just came out with their Confetti Cake flavor right after my surgery and it has been my favorite find so far! Highly recommend you check it {seriously, who doesn’t love cake!?}.
