Meat, poultry, beans, lentils, nuts, whey protein, corned beef, peanut butter and other nut butters, milk, yoghurt, fish, cheese.
You need it to stop your muscles wasting away, post oppers can eat so little that they need to concentrate on protein to stop the muscles wasting, that's why exercise is also important post op x

Is all meat got protien in which is best or are all same protien contents
I was editing it Jackie with more info. Yes all meat, some higher than others, chicken is probably the best as its also lean meat, non oily fish is also good. Oily fish is good for Omega 3, which keeps your heart healthy. X

They use whey powder in protein shakes. You do have to watch the carb content in some of them though as they are high in sugar. Pea protein in low in carbs. Some of them don't taste so good or have a weird texture, I found its trial and error to find one that suits you. You are better getting your protein from real food whenever possible, but whey is good as a substitute x

I can post a pic of the pages from my sw book with all the P foods listed if that helps at all?
There’s also lots of recipes on the sw website that only uses SP foods ‘Speed’ (fruit/veg) and ‘Protein,’ everything from soups that I don’t think would need blending to bologneses and cottage pies could be blended or mashed? I can post some recipes if anyone’s interested? x

Just posting a quick comment so this will show up on my watched threads list.

Everytime I've dieted as an adult I've focused on protein. This is because I've always focused on muscle retention and not just being flabby and skinny.

You can get the most complete form from animal products and some veg like soya are high in it. Milk is great and that's how they make whey protein powder. It's easy to absorb and most serious weight lifters use it as a result.

Dieticians tend to tell overweight people to stay away from whey as it's not as filling as solid food so then you end up eating more calories. For wls people I think it's neither here or there as we have such little space to consume stuff and liquids tend to be easier to get in I think it's important to get the protein the best way you can get it.
