A gastric bypass diet is basically 60 grams of protein a day with less than 10 grams of sugar per meal and a limited amount of fat. A bariatric diet in the early stages requires that the food items be either pureed, baby food or liquid protein drinks. With that being said, there are actually some pretty good food plans on the market that are relatively similar to the gastric bypass diet.
For a person that has not had the surgery, it is important to eat one sensible meal per day. Your total calorie intake should be at least 1000 calories. The only reason a gastric bypass patient does not consume that much is it is not possible in the early stages of recovery. If you eat too few calories your body will not want to let you shed the pounds. It takes a certain amount of calories to burn calories.
Both Medifast and Wonder Slim have package plans that make this type of diet easy. These plans packaged consist of the food products necessary and the instructions on how to use the bariatric diet products. Both of these plans contain large amounts of proteins and supplements that give you the other nutrients that are necessary for a balanced diet. Both Medifast and Wonder Slim are suitable for gastric bypass patients.
The best benefit of these high protein packaged diets is they are very convenient. They are highly portable and you do not have to make food choices. That is all there at your finger tips with both the Medifast diet plan and the Wonder Slim Bariatric diet. These diets can also be customized for men, women and diabetics.
Having been on a gastric bypass diet, because I had the surgery, I am not sure it is a diet I could be on now. It is actually quite boring and bland, but I can take the concepts and customize them in a plan that is very similar that would work for someone that has not had gastric bypass surgery. The important parts of a gastric bypass diet without surgery is 60 grams of liquid or lean protein daily, limiting sugar and carbs as much as possible and eating a limited amount of fat. Really this is not whole lot different than many other diets. The only difference is the amount of calories a gastric bypass patient is able to consume in the early months following recovery.
