Not sure which plan is right for you?
Take a brief quiz help determine which meal plan is your perfect fit!
WILL I GET ENOUGH PROTEIN WITH THIS MEAL PLAN?
When following the guidelines of this meal plan, you will consume 90g of protein throughout the day on the products we provide alone. The minimum protein per day intake is around 60g, but it is better to be around the 100g range. The more active you are the more likely it is you will benefit from protein supplements in your diet. If you are unsure about how much protein you should be eating, check with your dietitian and personal trainer.
DOES THIS PLAN COME WITH A DIET GUIDE?
Yes! This plan comes with a Bariatric Diet Guide that will walk you through the foods we provide and how to use them during Phase 2 of your post-op diet. The guide also has helpful interactive pages such as food and exercise logs, exercise recommendations, and more!
WILL THE PORTION SIZES OF THE SUPPLEMENTS BE SMALL ENOUGH?
Bariatric patients should be cautious not to drink protein shakes and smoothies too quickly. When it comes to protein drinks it is especially easy to overfill the stomach pouch. To avoid filling up too quickly, stick to the recommended 125ml servings for first 12 weeks after your operation, before increasing your intake up to 250ml serving. (Never drink more than 1 x 250ml serving at a time). Try to avoid always mixing your protein powder with milk and use water instead.
SHOULD I MEET WITH A NUTRITIONIST WHILE USING THIS MEAL PLAN?
It is recommended that you meet with a Nutritionist while on this plan so you can discuss your progress and get answers to any questions you may have.
WHAT ARE SOME SNACKS OPTIONS THAT I CAN EAT WHILE ON THIS PLAN?
Begin adding very small portions of puréed and soft foods as tolerated. Take very small bites and chew everything very well. Do not take more than two bites every 20 minutes when adding a new food.
Recommended puréed and soft foods:
- Cottage cheese
- Well-cooked, puréed vegetables
- Hot cereals
- Mashed potatoes
- Scrambled egg whites or egg substitute
- Canned fruits
- Canned tuna fish
- Lean fish
- Lean ground meats or poultry
Avoid all bread and meats that are not easily chewed.
Which products do I need before and after bariatric weight loss surgery?
One of our healthcare team members can assist you with advice on which bariatric supplements are right for you. We have created many meal plans for you to follow using our specialty supplements. You can also check out our store to find recommended supplements based on need, such as before or after surgery, or based on which kind of surgery you had, such as gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, or lap-band. If you have a question, you can always reach out to us via text, phone, or email.
Are you allowed to eat solid foods after weight loss surgery?
Days 0 to 14 will be a liquid diet, followed by pureed foods on days 15 to 30. This will allow for adequate healing. Consult with your medical healthcare professional.
Can consuming dairy products after weight loss surgery cause any problems?
Milk contains lactose (which is not easily digested). Depending on your individual tolerance, even a tiny amount of milk can cause gas, cramps and even diarrhea.
AM I ALLOWED TO SNACK BETWEEN MEALS?
Snacking, nibbling, or grazing on foods, typically high-calorie and high-fat foods, can add a lot of calories a day to your food intake, defeating the purpose of your operation. Snacking will slow down your weight-loss and can quickly lead to weight gain.
CAN I EAT RED MEAT AFTER WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY?
You need to be very careful, and it’s recommended that you avoid eating red meat for the first several months. Red meats contain high levels of meat fibers which hold the piece of meat together, preventing you from separating it into small parts when you chew. This can plug the outlet of your stomach pouch and prevent anything from passing through, a condition that is very uncomfortable.
How much protein should I consume?
Strive to have 100 grams of protein per day. Check with your medical professional to determine the right amount for your type of surgery.
Can I eat spicy or seasoned foods after weight loss surgery?
After the initial six months following weight loss surgery, most patients are able to enjoy spices.
Do I meet with a nutritionist before and after surgery?
Most surgeons require patients to consult with a nutritionist before surgery. After weight loss surgery, one of our in-house nutritionists can assist you with healthy food selections.
