Contrary to popular belief, bariatric surgery is meant as a TOOL, not a silver bullet for weight loss. In fact, bariatric surgeons and nutritionists alike stress the necessity for a specific diet to ensure successful weight loss following surgery. The key to success is outlined by a simple rule “Protein First.” Protein is the most important nutrient in a bariatric patients meal plan. Adequate protein intake not only helps to keep you full so you don’t overeat, it is needed to supply proper building blocks for wound healing after surgery. In addition, it helps to burn fat, not muscle and support your natural metabolism. Many times it is difficult getting the recommended protein from just food alone.
Many patients ask, “How do I ingest the required amount of protein needed?” Protein shakes are an easy quick method to ingest a high quantity of protein without over filling your newly resized stomach. Our delicious BariTrack protein shakes are specifically catered to the needs of bariatric patients and people who want to lose and maintain their weight loss. With no added sugar, 6 g of fiber per serving, and an excellent source of protein and calcium, BariTrack shakes are a perfect way to keep your diet balanced, even on the go.
Other patients ask, “protein shakes I’ve had in the past taste metallic and chalky, what makes these different?” With a creamy vanilla flavor, our NEW 50 gram protein formula, our BariTrack shakes are sure to please! This particular series of BariTrack protein shakes have gone through several taste tests, and patients prefer our shakes to the competitor 4 to 1.
