What constitutes Protein, and can you suggest a protein product for lap band?

Please suggest a protein product for lap bandQ. I had lap-band surgery and was told protein is what I need to focus on. What constitutes PROTEIN? Any advice?

A. Protein is extremely important to all aspects of life! All of our tissue, enzymes and hormones come from protein. As well our brain function and immune systems depend on daily intake of protein. Protein comes from animal foods primarily such as fish, eggs, poultry, meat, and dairy. There are small amounts of protein in grains/vegetables, but not enough to consider these a good source.

Because your surgery limits the volume of food you can consume, you need to focus on getting very nutrient/protein dense foods as much as possible. You should also be taking a good, easily absorbed multivitamin and omega-3 fatty acid supplement. These are nutrients you are most likely deficient in. I also highly recommend taking HLC Probiotics to help maximize digestion and absorption of your nutrients!
