Are you looking for a high protein meal that’s bariatric friendly and can be on your table in just over a half hour? Chicken Pesto Bake may be the perfect weeknight meal for gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and lap band patients who easily tolerate chicken.
Do you use an Instant Pot for making bariatric recipes? If you haven’t tried it, you should.
The Instant Pot is an electric cooking device that utilizes pressure to cook foods quickly. It comes with a host of benefits:
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.
Super Bowl Sunday ranks up there with Thanksgiving as one of days of the year with the highest average caloric consumption. For gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and gastric band patients, consuming more calories than they need is contrary to their goal of achieving weight loss.
Turkey is the traditional protein for Thanksgiving. Most adults don’t cook a whole turkey many other days out of the year, so they are often left wondering how to use the leftover turkey.
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.
