Continue reading to find out the types of snack you can eat after bariatric surgery.
 
Snacking Between Meals

You must learn to differentiate between psychological hunger caused by craving of particular foods and actual hunger. However, if you are truly experiencing physical hunger, then you may have snacks. But there are restrictions. Do not eat a snack that is rich in carbohydrates. In fact, chew upon slowly and thoroughly a protein rich snack. Also take note the calorie rich drinks like soda, and juice will not satiate your hunger, and will not provide your body with sufficient nutrients either. Therefore, it is important that when you are snacking between meals, you are consuming a meal that is substantial. 

Delicious Snacks That You Can Devour 

Sugary delights and carbohydrate rich diet sure are enticing but they are detrimental to your health. Even if you think that you are consuming them in temperance, their intake can be catastrophic in cutting down calories. These foods will only fill you up on empty calories. On the contrary, you may have delicious healthy snacks. Here are a few ideas in order to satiate your hunger.  By no means are they a exhaustive list – they are just a few idea to get you on the right track.

Lean Meats: You may consume lean meats, such as baked turkey, cornish hen, and chicken. Beef flank and steak in appropriate serving sizes, and centre loin or tenderloin of pork. A single slice of your favourite deli meat (nitrate free) with sliced veggies, and a chunk of cheese is not just fulfilling but healthy as well.

Nuts Veggies and Fruit: Eat a few walnuts or almonds, or veggies like carrots and celery with tuna. Olives are also a good tasty snack for in between meals. You can also eat fresh organic low sugar berries with cottage cheese. Apples with cashew butter are really healthy alternatives.
