Protein is an important part of every diet. It can help reduce appetite and hunger levels, increase muscle mass and strength, and can boost your metabolism and increase fat burning. With your ReShape® weight loss balloon, you’ll want to maintain a regular intake of balanced nutrients, including protein.
If you find yourself wondering how much protein you should incorporate in your diet, talk to your ReShape team of weight loss professionals, whether it be your doctor, registered nurse, or dietitian. Remember, you’ll have access to your ReShape team for 12 full months—during the first six months while the intragastric balloon is inside your stomach and the last six months after the gastric balloon has been removed. Throughout the year, you’ll have the ability to meet frequently with this team and receive personalized nutrition, fitness, and behavior guidance.
You can also stay inspired and engaged by checking out the ReShape Patient Portal, where you’ll find high-protein and other healthy recipes. Staying active on the ReShape portal and recording your food and activity levels is also an excellent way to help your coaching session be more effective and productive as you and your coach examine your food choices, and create personalized strategies that can keep you on the path to success.
