While doing your research on bariatric products and all of the things you think you might need post-op, you are probably going to be a little bit stressed already by everything that’s happening. This is one thing, at least, that you do not have to worry about. You have plenty of options when it comes to post-op bariatric products to make your everyday life much easier. Let’s walk through some of the bariatric products you might want to have in your home after your procedure.
Meals As worrisome as it might be to plan out your meals, you actually have more options than you might have thought. You can even find ready-to-make meals meant for bariatric patients specifically that can be stored in your cabinets whenever you need a quick meal. You can whip up a quick little flatbread sandwich for lunch, using these “everything bagel” flatbreads and whatever you have in your refrigerator. For dinner, you can heat up a nice bowl of creamy mushroom soup or add vegetables to a beef bone broth for a satisfying, but light meal.
Snacks It is definitely better to have several small things to eat throughout the day than a few large meals, and this is doubly sure for someone after a bariatric procedure. Since not everything you eat can be a meal, you will want some snacks as well. That does not mean junk food, by the way, but smaller things you can eat that will fall in line with your dietary needs. Imagine getting to enjoy cinnamon oatmeal squares in the morning or coconut cream cups before dinner and knowing that they are made to fit right into a bariatric diet after eating only soft foods.
Drinks You’ve had a meal, but what are you going to drink besides clear liquids? Protein shakes are great for your diet after your bariatric surgery. One nutrient your doctor will encourage you to consume plenty of is protein, and this can be consumed even in drinks. You can mix up a glass of tasty mocha coffee protein shake to start your day off, and possibly replace a light meal. You could also drink up a cool peach cranberry protein juice or a protein juice with tropical flavors to give yourself something refreshing. Even your beverages can be tasty and nutritious with your bariatric needs in mind.
Vitamins Beyond good eating habits, you might want something more. You might want something to give you a little boost in more targeted ways. As always, some specific vitamins meant to directly address your concerns might be of great help. Feeling low on energy? Try energy-boosting B12 vitamin jellies. Perhaps you do not feel the best about your breath or oral care? You can look at these mouth reset lozenges to help remove the bad bacteria that causes bad breath and other oral health problems. You are not alone in your post-op concerns, and bariatric products have been made to help those experiencing the same issues.
So there you have it. Now you can see that there are bariatric products available to help get you through your daily life after the bariatric procedure. All of these items are designed with these kinds of surgeries in mind, so you can rest easy knowing that there are options available to you to make your life even just a little bit easier. From simple, quick meals, to satisfying protein shakes, to vitamins to give you a little boost. You know just where to find everything. You can look to Bariatric Eating for all of these items and more to support your post-op success.
