If you had Weight Loss Surgery in Mexico, it is vitally important to follow your post-op diet instructions including all the phases, beginning with the permitted liquids. Protein shakes after weight loss surgery is key to weight loss success. Your surgeon has stressed the importance of a diet extremely rich in protein which is a necessity for weight loss patients. There are many options of powder protein shakes, however, drinking the same protein shake day after day can be tiring and boring.
Protein shakes are a simple drink to give your body extra nutrients and vitamins to stay healthy and provide energy after your weight loss surgery. As a weight loss patient, you will need to be familiarized with the protein intake to be able to prepare your own variety and adequate homemade protein shakes.
First of all, patients need to know what to incorporate in a protein shake. The weight loss patient's protein shake must include 5 components:
- Protein base: Protein powder, low-fat Greek yogurt, cottage cheese
- Fruit: Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, banana, peaches
- Liquids: Nonfat lactose-free milk, soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk, coconut water, sugar-free beverages, water

- Fats: peanut butter, almond butter, coconut oil, nutmeg
Optional flavors add-ons:

In terms of equipment, a blender or food processor will be needed to be able to blend the ingredients until the protein shake is smooth, non-chunky consistency.
The combinations can be endless, the patient must just be creative and sure of including at least one of the ingredients of each component.
