The obesity epidemic continues to affect our population both in the US and worldwide. While there are constant and continuous initiatives to aid in the reversal and management of this dilemma some patients need more support than the traditional intervention program can provide. For patients requiring more aggressive intervention, bariatric surgery may be a necessary discussion. While the journey to bariatric surgery may not be a short one, the journey to recovery can be even longer. In addition to the emotional toll that surgery may play patients have to manage the challenges of understanding their new physical hunger cues, meal pattern changes, and vitamin and mineral insufficiencies, all while maintaining adequate hydration and fueling the body for recovery.
One of the biggest barriers with bariatric surgery is meeting protein needs. Protein plays a huge role in support and recovery after surgery and it is a corner stone to ensure successful outcomes. The market is flooded with protein products, and finding the right product with high protein, low carbohydrates and low volume can be like finding a needle in a haystack.
