After bariatric surgery it’s vital for patients to focus on their protein intake. Women should get 50-60 grams of protein per day while men need 60-80 grams of protein, every day. Protein shakes are one of the best tools available for getting enough protein immediately after surgery when you are on a liquid or soft foods diet and are unable to consume solid meals.
If you are struggling with drinking protein shakes there are usually several key reasons why you just can’t stomach them. This video offers tips and tricks to help make protein shakes more palatable.
