Weight Loss Surgery Patients: How Much Protein Do You Need?*


Many medical professionals believe that there just hasn’t been enough research on the protein needs of Weight Loss Surgery Patients.

Generally, it appears that many of the patients whose surgeons are members of the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery are advised to get at least 60 to 80 grams of quality protein per day.

Because there is not enough known, we believe the conservative course for patients is to consume near the top end of this range, that is 70 to 80 grams per day*.

The goal is to maintain lean body mass, as well as support successful weight loss.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF INSUFFICIENT PROTEIN?

The first sign of lack of protein is often fatigue and/or weakness. Not just the feeling that we didn’t get enough sleep last night, but deep fatigue….or weakness where it’s hard to get through the day.

A second sign is weight loss plateau. When we don’t get enough protein, there is increasing evidence that the body tries to store calories rather than burning them. We hear from many patients who do get enough protein that they are successful in reaching their weight loss goal.

A third sign is hair loss, and we believe it is often preventable. While one cause of hair loss following the surgery is the “shock” of the surgery to the body, another leading cause of hair loss in weight loss surgery patients is insufficient intake of protein.

Surgical complications. Is there surgery in your future? For many, the answer is yes. The best single numerical predictor of how well a surgery will go is your protein status. Also, after the surgery, if your protein status is low, your body will heal more slowly, sometimes very slowly.

HOW TO GET THAT MUCH PROTEIN?

An ounce of meat (the weight after the shrinkage of cooking) provides about 7 grams of protein.

An egg contains about 7 grams of protein. Milk contains 8 grams of protein per 8 ounce cup

Example: To get 70 grams of protein from meat, you would need to eat 10 ounces of cooked meat each day.
