Persons who have just undergone bariatric surgery need a change in eating habits. This is attributed to one not being able to eat as much as before the surgery and the need for the body to heal/recover after the surgery. This means a bariatric convalescent
needs small portions of food rich in protein. Proteins are vital for muscle growth and energy provision.
There are numerous sources of proteins a bariatric convalescent can consume. However for bariatric patients diagnosed with celiac disease their
protein meals should come from gluten free food. Obtaining a gluten free diet is quite a challenge and requires a lot of patience to change your eating habits to eating gluten free diet foods.
Gluten is the protein part of grains such as wheat rye barley among others. Celiac disease is termed as the reaction of the small intestine to gluten which results into one being unable to absorb nutrients from food. Bariatric patients with celiac disease should shift to taking gluten free diets as soon as they are diagnosed with this disease. If however you are not allergic to gluten you can still consume gluten free diet foods as they present added advantages to general health and well being. Gluten free foods have been known to assist in other health conditions such as neurological imbalance balance deficiencies joint pains and autism.
Most times food packaging may indicate that the product therein is a gluten free food. This may not necessarily be the truth at all times. An anti gluten free pantry includes breads pasta crackers salad dressings and processed meats. Bariatric Food Products have developed a wide range of gluten free diet foods. These gluten free foods range from snack bites drinks yoghurt smoothies puddings cheddar chips chicken soups shakes among others.
