We can’t be perfect all the time, so I’m sharing my lunches and pointing out where I can improve. Keep in mind that I am 18 months post-op RNY. Remember that we are all different, so everyone should be following the plan set out by your nutritionist and/or surgeon.
Bariatric Friendly Alternatives
This yogurt is delicious but it comes with a lot of sugar.
Alternative: Plain fat free Greek yogurt with a little sugar free preserves (the apricot is yummy)
Essential Everyday Nutty Nuggets (off brand Grape Nuts)
adds a serious crunch to yogurt, but they are high in calories and carbs.
Alternative: I have no suggestions except to keep the serving to about a tablespoon. Feel free to offer suggestions in the comments below.
Nuts are high in calories, but they are good for you. That have a decent amount of protein and other beneficial nutrients. Keep the portion size down.
Alternative: Same answer as the cereal above.
