Two month post op appointment, need more protein?



Recommended Posts

My doctor was happy with my progress of losing 40 pounds since surgery but is urging me to add more Protein through a few more small meals. That's hard, any suggestions?

I have a hard time with that too. Boiled eggs, tuna, low fat cheese, chicken breast, lean steak. You are doing great. I am 40lbs down but I am 5 months out. Keep up the great work!!

I was told the same thing at my first post op appointment. I had lost 60 pounds by then but my Protein levels weren't very good. I am now adding unflavored Protein mix to two of my drinks every day, eating a Protein Bar, and a Protein shake. Not crazy about the Protein Shake but I have to do what I have to do, I don't want to get sick, and I don't want to lose any more hair. Doing those things has increased my protein amount that I get daily tremendously, so I'm finally reaching my goal.

Get an instant pot or Power Pressure Pot XL and make yourself more muscle meats and or Beans... I can make incredible refried Beans from bag to refry within 1 hour. They pot has helped me get more Protein in for sure, without it I would not get my protein in, as I don't consume whey and I hate nearly all the shakes except for vegan ones. Good luck!
