Eggs are a great source of protein for gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and lap band patients. They provide high-quality protein and a nearly negligible amount of carbohydrates. This is ideal for those trying to meet their protein goals while not exceeding their daily carbohydrate limit to promote weight loss following bariatric surgery.
Memorial Day is on its way, and surely the celebrations will commence. We often celebrate with gatherings of family and friends, usually centered about a grill. Cookouts are usually an easy meal for bariatric patients to work around as they are often centered around proteins.
Gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and gastric band patients know that exercise, along with their low calorie diet, is crucial to maximize their weight loss success. There’s just no getting around the fact that exercise helps burn calories, reduce body fat, build lean muscle mass, and helps improve both blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Workouts and strength training should be incorporated into a bariatric patient’s new lifestyle after they have been cleared to exercise by their bariatric surgeon.
You know that exercise is crucial not only to your weight loss, but to your overall health, including your blood pressure, blood sugar, and muscle strength and tone. This is especially true after gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, or lap band surgery. It’s how you maximize your results. You know all of this, you understand it. But, you’re tired. You had a long day at work. Or you’re feeling sick.
