Immediately following bariatric surgery, patients are told to focus on eating protein. But all proteins are not created equal. Some proteins, such as sausage or pre-packaged protein bars are loaded with calories while offering a meager amount of protein. Lean proteins are those that offer higher amounts of protein for fewer calories and are the types of protein you should be eating.
The most important thing to consider when choosing protein is the 10 to 1 Ratio Rule. This video will give you examples of how to use the rule to determine which proteins are good proteins.
