A Healthier Sweet Treat

Around Valentine’s Day, stores are filled with sweets, candies, and desserts. Because of this, it can be an especially tempting time to put your post weight loss surgery diet on the back burner. Foothills Weight Loss Specialists in Knoxville wants you to know that you can still get a sweet treat with our protein powder!

Not only does our protein powder help you get your daily serving of protein, but it can also be blended to create a tasty treat that will help kick that sweet craving. Frozen fruit is a great way to take your protein shake to the next level. Here are three fun recipes to try:

If you’ve undergone bariatric surgery and find yourself struggling with cravings, you’re not alone. But don’t let temporary cravings set you back from the goal you’re working to achieve! Get creative with your options, search online for healthy alternatives to your cravings, and don’t be afraid to talk to somebody about what you’re going through.

Foothills Weight Loss Specialists offer monthly support groups for our bariatric patients. This can give you an outlet to vent, share your experiences, and hear about how other people going through the same things you are. You can find a list of upcoming support group meetings online.
