Protein

In my last post I talked about my visit to the nutritionist. I wanted to follow-up on that, and talk about all-important protein. She was clear that 70g of protein a day was what I need. She did provide some useful tips on high-protein foods, which was good for me to start thinking about. I've posted some of that information on the nutrition/protein page.

She also talked to me about hair loss. I'd read some things on biotin and silica, saying that they'd help. But she said it really was going to come down to protein. Just another reason to make sure I've got a plan to get enough.

She also validated for me that getting a blood test wasn't a bad idea. So, I'm definitely going to ask my local doctor when I see her next week to order them for me. I will use the list I got from a local bariatric surgeon, which can be found on the blood tests page. Check out the video and let me know your thoughts! Best, gastricsleeve4me
