Protein Bars: What Part of Bariatric Diet?

Recommended Posts

I haven’t been able to find any info on this but I am curious where soft Protein Bars (Built bars in particular because of the macros) fit in a Bariatric diet? Would these be able to be added in for the soft foods phase, or are they considered an after on the “regular” diet? These have a soft consistency, no chunks, and 5G of sugar or less so I’d like to add them in. Just not sure where.

I am 14 months post RNY. I waited til I was on solid foods for Protein Bars. But I had a hard time with them still. It was about 6 months until I could handle one and then I tried many different ones. But everyone and every body is different. I also had strictures restricting me from taking in food. The only one I eat now are Built Bars. They taste amazing. And have been my saviour especially when I have a sweet tooth or chocolate craving or a desire for dessert. I love the salted caramel (think milky way candy bar) and cherry barcia, omg! Tastes like a chocolate covered cherry. Their limited release flavors are always exciting, big hits and sell outs. I am a brand ambassador.

I have a discount code for 10% off if you're interested, it's 36608. And the link is builtbar.com?baapp=36608

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
