A bariatric or medical weight loss surgery patient already has it hard, but if you’re a diabetic, things can get even more complicated! As you struggle to find foods that not only fit within your nutrient quotas and carb restrictions, but you’ll also have to watch for sugary foods. The good news is that a bariatric surgery can often help reverse diabetes and sometimes fully eliminate it, upping your life expectancy by a considerable amount.
Here at Bariatric Lifestyle Diet, we understand what your body is going through. As you recover, it will prove challenging to adhere to the diet plans set forth. Your shrunken stomach size means you’ll be fuller faster, sometimes even before your nutrient intake was met.
Fortunately, we offer a variety of diabetic diet plans to help you maintain or meet your weight loss goal after surgery – including awesome protein shakes! Here are some of our favorites designed for diabetic weight loss patients:
