High Protein Snacks for Bariatric Patients

Many people who have had bariatric surgery will know that protein should be their focal point at each main meal.

To find out more about why protein is so important, check out our previous blog post on the importance of a high protein diet post weight loss surgery.

Post Bariatric Surgery Diet: High Protein Snack Ideas

Generally speaking, you should be aiming for at least 60-80g of protein each day.

However, depending on your age, height, build and exercise habits your protein requirements may be higher.

If you are unsure about your specific protein requirements, please contact us on 07 3871 2277 and speak to one of our bariatric dietitians. 

If you are struggling to meet your protein requirements or find that you are heavily relying on protein powders rather than wholefoods to get adequate protein, try incorporating a protein rich snack in between meals.
