Is Broth a Protein Source?



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I noticed that broth is the only non-sweet thing I'll be able to eat for a spell post-op. My question is this supposed to regular broth that I can buy from the grocery or is it a special kind of broth?

TIA,

Pennie

Hey Pennie,

This probably sounds crazy, but I bought the chicken and veggie flavor boullion cubes. The other broths just didn't appeal to me. Plus, I was able to dillute it for my tastes.

Hi Pennie,

I did the same as Tiffy & bought the chicken bouillion (sp.?), but the granules. I think I got the lower-sodium kind because I drank so much of it in the beginning. If you are looking to get Protein, I think unjury has a chicken broth flavored powder that you could mix with Water. You might want to check out that "rate your proteins" thread somewhere around here. I know others on here have tried that flavor & had good things to say about it.

As the body's metabolism requires a steady intake of Water in order to function effectively, dieters should always be drinking water or taking in water-rich foods to keep the body's metabolism running at optimal speed. With its high water content, vegetable broth is an excellent natural source of hydration.

I LOVED the unjury chicken broth!!

I still use it!

More Protein than the 'cans' and less sodium.

I was doing a google search for bariatric post op food and came across a website that had different flavors of Soup that had 12-15g Protein in them. I don't remember the name brand...sounds good though! Y'all keep up the good work ...your journey is beginning!!! Mine will be mid feb... I can't wait!

Chancie,

Our tastebuds are all so different! I tried the unjury chicken Soup yesterday. I liked the flavor, hated the 780 mg of sodium and felt a little nauseated after drinking it. I decided to go with the Trader Joe's low sodium broth and add some unflavored Protein powder to it. Not sure how that will work as I haven't tried it yet.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
