We have already talked about the importance of nutritional follow-ups post Gastric Bypass Surgery and how it is necessary for patients to take special care of themselves. 

Our previous article covered how necessary vitamins and minerals are, especially for patients of Gastric Bypass. Although we mentioned proteins, we did not really delve into this topic which is as important and vital for the general health of the body.

Proteins are the cornerstone of biological life as we know it: every cell in the human body is made up of proteins, which are a chain of amino acids. You need proteins to help your body repair cells and to create new ones, among other functions.

Hence, the need of proper consumption of proteins for the sake of the overall health and function of your body, especially for a Gastric Bypass patient, which is what we are going to talk about in this article.

Why Protein?

Proteins directly affect the health of the body.

Not only do they help to maintain and create new cells, but proteins also:

  • Help build and maintain muscle mass.
  • Energy source.
  • Strengthen hair, nails, and skin.
  • They can also help minimize sagging skin that is common after surgery by maintaining muscle mass.

People who have undergone Gastric Bypass Surgery are in special need of proteins because these procedures limit, in one way or another, the number of nutrients your body absorbs. 

It is important to consume a multivitamin supplement specially formulated for patients of Gastric Bypass surgery. However, it is equally important to avoid any nutritional deficiency that may occur after the surgery, even the ones outside of minerals and vitamins.

Proteins are crucial for Gastric Bypass patients to maintain as much muscle mass as possible while losing weight, as well as maintaining energy levels up to keep active during this process. 

It is important to note that the human body can’t make protein without ingesting it, and it also has no way to store it, making it vital to consume the right amount of protein daily.

We recommend developing a Meal Plan for Two to Six Months Post-Surgery with your Doctor or trusted Health Specialist.

How to Better Ingest Proteins After Gastric Bypass Surgery

For the first few weeks after surgery, your body is still adjusting to its new processes and it might be quite delicate around food. 

In this new stage of adaptation, you may not want to consume food even when necessary, and you may not even receive the nutrition you need from the food you do eat.
