Let’s Examine the Contents
Date: Date is a food that is considered in the fruit group rich in folic acid, potassium, iron, calcium and fiber. 1 date can be consumed instead of 1 fruit.
Lemon: As we all know, lemon is one of the richest and most powerful natural antibiotic foods in terms of vitamin C. Lemon, which has many benefits in terms of health, also increases the absorption of iron when consumed with foods high in iron content. It is also frequently used in waters due to its edema-reducing effect.
Walnut: Containing 65% oil and approximately 15% protein, walnut is a food that is evaluated in the oil group. 2 walnuts have an average of 45 calories. Especially rich in omega-6 fatty acids, walnuts also contain many beneficial vitamins and minerals. Minerals such as copper, phosphorus, manganese and vitamins such as folic acid, B6 and vitamin E are some of them. At the same time, the flavonoids found in walnuts, which are rich in antioxidant components, also play an important role for the body.
Banana: Banana, which attracts attention with its high nutritional ingredients, is among the most popular fruits due to its soft, pulp and sweetness. 1 serving of banana, which is about 130 grams, contains 110 calories and 30 grams of carbohydrates. It keeps you full for a long time due to its high fiber content. Since it is easy to digest, it is especially recommended for those with stomach problems. Containing high amounts of potassium, bananas help regulate high blood pressure and heart functions. Providing essential vitamins and minerals that the body needs, bananas help increase body energy. The calcium, magnesium and potassium contained in bananas, which are among the most preferred fruits by athletes, reduce muscle pain and muscle cramps.
Oats: 1 portion of oats is about 2 tablespoons of oats, which keep you full for a long time due to the high fiber it contains and helps against constipation problem. This food, which has an average of 70 calories, can be consumed in diets instead of bread. Due to the whole grains it contains, it helps to regulate intestinal health and even prevent colon cancer.
Strained yogurt: Strained yogurt, which is denser than normal yogurt, is a food rich in protein, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and folic acid.
Honey: Due to its high antioxidant content, it provides resistance to bacteria and viruses that cause disease and strengthens immunity. However, this food, which is high in carbohydrates, should be consumed in a controlled manner in terms of calories. 1 teaspoon of honey is about 30 calories. In rare cases, it can be used instead of refined sugar in desserts. However, since the carcinogenic substance called Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) is released when heated and its nutritional value decreases, it should be consumed without heating.
Labne: Labne cheese is a good source of protein, vitamin A, folic acid, calcium, and phosphorus. However, since their oil content is generally high, it is beneficial to choose the light ones.
Protein powder: Due to the decreased stomach volume after bariatric surgery, especially in the first weeks, problems such as sagging due to muscle loss, hair loss, nail breakage, drying of the skin, weakness, fatigue may occur due to lack of adequate protein, vitamin and mineral intake. For this reason, protein powder is recommended to be consumed for an average of 3-6 months.
