Bariatric procedures are often referred to as “weight loss surgery.” Gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, and other operations are all part of weight loss procedures. Because the stomach size has been reduced after any of these procedures, specific diets are needed. These diets are characterised by portion restriction, low-calorie, and high protein intake.

Plant Sumo’s bariatric frozen meals make following these diets much simpler. We provide meals that address your journey’s key tenets and deliver them right to your door.

With Plant Sumo, you don’t need to worry about inadequate and over-portioned meals.

What's With Plant Sumo's Frozen Meals? How Can It Help Bariatric Patients?

This risk is significantly higher in the first few weeks following surgery when your intake of food and liquids is at its lowest. It’s crucial to remember that these risks persist throughout one’s lifetime.

The largest problem is managing the higher risk of nutrient shortages while handling the higher protein needs associated with the weight loss and recovery processes. Plant-based dieters also have far fewer alternatives for food and beverages during the pre-op and post-op diet phases.

Despite these risks, you can pursue a plant-based diet throughout your bariatric surgery journey without putting yourself at risk of issues like vitamin deficiencies or subpar wound healing with some cautious planning and the advice of a plant-based dietician knowledgeable in the field.

Nutrients At Risk After Bariatric Surgery

Protein, iron, B12, folic acid, vitamin D, and thiamine are the nutrients in which all bariatric patients are most likely to be deficient. Calcium, zinc, and, to a lesser extent, vitamins A, C, E, and K, are other possible nutritional deficiencies. As a result, you must arrange your meals and supplements with a little extra care to ensure that you are getting what you need (alongside the guidance of a dietitian, of course).

Main Categories of Plant-Based Diet to Help Bariatric Patients Lose Weight

LEGUMES

There is no need for animal products to provide the protein needed for a balanced diet because beans and other legumes can do it. Consider a variety of beans, including kidney, pinto, black, and chickpeas, as well as lentils and green peas. Nice, filling, and hearty.

Vegetables

Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, romaine, spinach, beets, kale, and cabbage are examples of non-starchy vegetables. For flavour and additional crunch, add peppers and onions. They are low in calories and fill you with good fibre, which keeps your colon working.

The other subgroup consists of more starchy vegetables, such as sweet potatoes, Yukon white potatoes, yams, tubers, and squash. These foods are also healthy when eaten in moderation and with little to no processing.

Fruits

Craving for sweets? You’ll be pleasantly astonished by how delicious fresh oranges, creamy bananas, tangy berries, mangoes, apples, and tomatoes are. They also include a lot of antioxidants and a large deal of fibre. Avoid fruit juices since they include too many calories and frequently contain preservatives and hidden sugars.

Whole Grains

Oats, barley, quinoa, wild rice, whole wheat, and other grains are available. All “whole wheat” bread is not made equal when it comes to bread. Look for these terms to find whole grain, stone ground, or Ezekiel loaves made from sprouted whole grains.

FAQs

We recommend consuming them in not more than 15 days after receiving them. The freezer is the ideal place to keep your frozen meals fresh. They may be taken straight from the freezer into the microwave because the containers they come in are microwave-safe.

One of the most crucial nutrients for people undergoing bariatric surgery is protein. High-protein foods should always be consumed first because bariatric surgery limits the stomach’s capacity to a very tiny volume, and you risk feeling full before you can eat anything else.

And almost all of our meals here at Plant Sumo are protein-rich to ensure that you meet all the nutrients you need from weight loss surgery recovery.

About six to twelve months after bariatric weight loss surgery, you might notice thinning hair if your diet is deficient in protein. Consuming enough protein each day is crucial because the human body cannot produce it independently and has no way to store it. Never neglect your protein intake; allow Plant Sumo to plan meals for you.
