#1 Most Overlooked Reason for Weight Regain After WLS

#1 Most Overlooked Reason for Weight Regain After WLS

Weight Regain is common, and really frustrating for many weight loss surgery patients.

However, the causes of weight regain are not always straight forward. There are a variety of factors that can get in the way of forward progress including difficult life events, loss of motivation, and old habits creeping back in.

But there is one important factor that is often overlooked, malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies.

You might be wondering, “how can malnutrition play a role in weight regain?” It’s a good question. When people are malnourished, they don’t feel like themselves. In fact, the usually feel pretty terrible.

Protein malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies can lead to fatigue, muscle weakness, depression, frequent illness, and memory loss. They could ALSO be the reasons that you want to eat more.

It’s common to increase calories, particularly sugar calories, when you feel tired and down, and you are lacking energy all the time. Feeling fatigued can lead to being less active and you might avoid exercise all together. Both of these changes to your healthy routine will lead to weight regain after bariatric surgery.

You can avoid nutritional deficiencies and help prevent unwanted weight regain by doing these 3 things:

  1. Take a high quality Bariatric Multi-Vitamin, like Opurity® Vitamins every day, even in maintenance.
  2. Meet your daily protein goals “30-30-30” with high-quality Bariatric Protein like UNJURY® Protein.
  3. Be sure that your medical team is doing all the lab work that is recommended for bariatric patients by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeons (ASMBS).

If you need more help getting back on track, be sure to join the Wednesday night UNJURY® Cares Support Group meetings. They are FREE, fun and very informative!
