Bariatric Protein Powders
Our protein powders are a fast, efficient, and delicious way to give your body the protein and other minerals it needs to remain nourished post-bariatric surgery. Our protein powders come in single-serving bottles–all you need to do is add water and shake! This is an ideal solution for getting the protein you need on the go.
WeightWise protein powders come in a variety of flavors and pack 15-20 grams of protein in each bottle. Chocolate, Mocha, and Proticcino are just a few of the flavors we offer, each ringing in at 80-100 calories. Grab a few bottles for when you are traveling, to prevent skipping meals, and/or when you know you will need something quick and convenient to help stay on track with your diet.
The Importance of Protein Supplements
Bariatric surgery is designed to help you eat less, feel fuller faster, and is one part of a healthier lifestyle (along with a proper diet and physical activity). However, as you eat less, you are unable to get the amount of protein, vitamins, and other nutrients needed to keep your body moving.
Protein powder is one way to help bridge that gap. These bottles are small enough to finish in one sitting but will also fill you up without making you feel uncomfortable. As part of a well-rounded diet, our protein powders are a satisfying way to keep you on a track for a healthier lifestyle. However, it is not recommended to consume protein shakes daily, or for multiple meals each day, since they will not keep you full long term. Think of these as a backup plan.
Protein Powders and the WeightWise Program
We believe the best way to lose weight and keep the weight off is a three-pronged process. The procedure, either a gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, or duodenal switch, changing your diet, and getting enough physical activity daily. WeightWise protein powders are one tool that can help you maintain your dietary needs.
When you come to WeightWise, you will be paired with a dietitian and an exercise physiologist to discuss what you can expect in the weeks, months, and years after surgery. It is definitely a big decision to undergo a procedure, but we’ll be here for you every step of the way.
