We have talked with too many patients who started gaining weight when they stopped using protein shakes.
Why does the switch away from protein powder shakes trigger weight gain?
One reason is that patients struggle to meet their protein goals with chicken, fish, eggs, and beef alone. Here’s why:
- Meat can be harder to digest after surgery, you might not tolerate it 3 x per day.
- It takes longer to prepare, difficult for a busy lifestyle.
- It isn’t shelf stable, so it may not always be available in your kitchen.
When patients don’t meet protein goals each day, they may fill calorie gaps with fat or carbs.
Protein Shakes are like a weight loss insurance policy.
Using protein shakes in combination with solid protein foods helps you meet your goals so you won’t be as hungry and you will protect lean muscle, which is important to a healthy metabolism.
So, how do you get 90 grams of high-quality protein in your diet in every day? Protein Shakes make it easier. One shake has 200 calories or less, and 20-30 grams of protein. They have smaller portions and they’re more affordable than protein at the grocery store!
