Getting sufficient protein is essential for muscle growth and repair for everyone but even more important post-bariatric surgery or if you are someone who does a lot of resistance training or exercise.
Immediately after your surgery, eating high-protein foods can help you heal. If you include resistance training or are someone who exercises more than most, a slight increase in protein intake is also essential.
There are many high protein foods sources available including lean cuts of beef, chicken, pork, fish, tofu, legumes and dairy food e.g. low-fat cheese, cottage cheese and yoghurts also are good protein sources. While we always recommend food as the best way to meet your protein requirements, at times it may be difficult to meet protein requirements or you may just need to top up on your daily intake. Protein supplements are a quick and convenient way to help you do this. For this reason we have included a range of high protein supplements in different flavours to help you meet your needs.
