Ensuring the body has enough protein after a gastric sleeve or bypass surgery is key when it comes to your postoperative diet. WeightWise protein bites are a delicious and savory way to give your body the protein it needs to function properly.
Ringing in at 10 grams of protein and just 130 calories, Protein Double Bites provide a nice punch of nutrition and can satisfy any crunchy cravings.
These protein bites are great by themselves, but can also be used as a side for your main or as part of a dish. When crumbled, the double bites can be a tasty–and healthy–breading on your protein. They can also be used to replace croutons, breadcrumbs, or crackers in bariatric soups and salads.
Looking for something a little sweeter? WeightWise also carries Soy Snacks in both chocolate and peanut caramel to satisfy your sweet tooth AND provide up to 15 grams of protein! There’s also a satisfying crunch in the middle of these delicious treats, so the soy snacks check a lot of those snack boxes.
The Importance of Protein
Normally, we get enough protein from the foods we eat, either through meat, eggs, and certain fruits and vegetables. However, after surgery, you won’t have the same food intake as you did before, so you’ll need to take supplements along with eating high-protein foods to help make up for that loss.
Protein in the body is what gives us our energy and helps build and repair muscle and bones via amino acids. Without protein, or a protein deficiency, we can become listless or fatigued and our nails and hair can become brittle. This can be troubling, especially if you need to increase your physical activity after a bariatric procedure.
Protein Bites are an excellent way to ensure your body gets all of the protein and other nutrients it needs throughout the day. Take care of those hunger pangs with these delicious snacks and stay on track for your weight goals. In addition to protein bites, WeightWise also offers vitamins, protein shakes, and other products to fill you up and keep you going.
