The following are the products we use and love! These come personally recommended by the Barivangelist.
Bariatric Vitamins and Supplements
A pill organizer for your bariatric vitamins will help you make sure you never miss a dose! This particular one is the BEST because you can detach each day and discreetly stick it in your bag for work.
This iron by Feosol is GREAT for bariatric patients because it is absorbed super well and is so gentle, it won’t make you constipated.
Premier Protein is a favorite protein shake among the weight loss surgery community!
Looking for an unflavored protein powder that mixes well into different recipes? Genepro Medical Grade Protein has proven to be a great brand!
Tired of the same flavors of protein shakes? These sugar-free syrups by Torani are super delicious! Just and .5-1 serving in your protein shake and blend! My favorite is S’mores flavor with a chocolate Premier Protein shake! Mmm…
One of the most helpful things to have to help you with not eating too fast is this amazing bariatric silverware set, with just the right amount of portion control for each bite!
These bariatric dishes help you better portion your meals. Just fill in the circles! They come in a few different decorative patterns to help encourage and motivate you!
My favorite bottle for making protein shakes is the Blender Bottle. It has a removal coil that helps mix powder drinks more efficiently.
The Fitbit Charge 2 is number one at Amazon for a reason: It totally rocks! I love that it reminds me to get up once an hour. It tracks my heart rate, sleep patterns, steps, minutes of cardio, and so much more! One of my favorite things!
The Spiralizer is one of my most-used appliances! Toss the starchy, fattening noodles into the trash can, and start making delicious zoodles instead! YUM!
The Instant Pot is a MUST have! Cook up juicy, tender meat quickly, even from frozen! Not only is it the best pressure cooker out there, you can use it as a crockpot, to make easy steamed veggies, the perfect hard-boiled eggs, or to make your own sugar-free yogurt!
Loose skin is such a bummer, am I right? Not with the right shapewear! I feel so much more put together when wearing good shape wear!
Miscellaneous Items for Bariatric Patients
Rings getting too loose? Don’t risk having them fly off your fingers! I have been using ring snuggies on my wedding bands to resize them for four years and they’ve been the perfect solution!
You may get one from your surgeon, but having an abdominal binder after bariatric surgery or skin removal surgery is an absolute necessity. It helps decrease the pain while you heal.
