Even if you have chosen a bariatric procedure that does not involve malabsorption; adequate vitamin supplementation will be needed due to the reduction in food intake.
Always work closely with your Registered Dietitian for a personalized supplement regimen based on your individual bloodwork. Here are some basic pointers:
1.5 quarts apple cider
1 quart diet cranberry juice
4 sticks cinnamon
10 allspice berries
1 quarter sized slice of ginger
1 orange, sliced
¼ cup of cranberries
Place all ingredients in a large pot or crockpot and bring to a low boil.
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion , chopped
4 garlic cloves , minced
1 cup pumpkin puree , from the can or homemade
1.5 cups diced butternut squash
1.5 diced cup tomatoes , from the can
2 cups vegetable stock or chicken stock
15 oz canned black beans, drained and rinsed
7.5 oz garbanzo beans, canned and rinsed
1 ½ cups old fashioned oats (uncooked)
3 scoops Bariatric Advantage High Protein Meal Replacement- Pumpkin spice
1 ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
¼ cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup nut butter (peanut, almond etc)
½ cup pure canned pumpkin puree
Optional: 1/8 cup mini chocolate chips
While it seems enticing to simply place a vitamin and mineral patch on your skin for a few hours each day instead of taking oral supplements, there are a few things you should be aware of when it comes to transdermal micronutrient delivery (a.k.a. the patch).
