Quick Facts

After WLS, the stomach size is reduced which limits the amount of food intake and can lead to nutritional deficiencies. Bariatric supplements can help fill in these nutrient gaps and ensure that the body gets the essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients needed to function properly. It's important to consult with a healthcare provider to determine the specific supplements that are right for you and follow the recommended dosage and usage instructions on the product label.

Some of the most asked questions about bariatric surgery, recovery & supplements are below:

What is bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is a type of procedure that is designed to help individuals who are struggling with obesity to lose weight. This can include procedures such as roux-en-y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, duodenal switch and adjustable gastric banding.

What are the benefits of bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery can lead to significant weight loss, which can improve or resolve obesity-related health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and joint pain. It can also improve the overall quality of life and increase life expectancy.

What are some ways to speed up recovery after weight loss surgery?

Recovering from weight loss surgery (WLS) can be a challenging process, but there are several things that can be done to help speed up the recovery process. Some of the most effective ways to speed up recovery include:

  1. Taking bariatric supplements as directed by a healthcare professional: Bariatric supplements, such as protein powders and multivitamins, can help provide the necessary nutrients for optimal recovery and long-term weight management.

  2. Exercising regularly: Regular exercise can help improve muscle tone, increase energy levels, and promote overall well-being.

Love them!

Excellent vitamins. Have taken these pre-op then since day one post-op and they’ve been amazing. Awesome that you can easily break them in half if you have trouble with the whole tablet. I just had my 3 month follow up bloods and everything was perfect. Can’t recommend these highly enough as a product, and the service is excellent!

Whey protein powder

It took me so many failed attempts to find a protein powder that sat well in my new tum. This product is perfect. No nausea or feeling bloated after. I even recommend it to non bariatric friends

Is totally tasteless I put in my daughter and Nanas coffees and teas to try give them some extra protein and they had no idea.

Incredible value for money!

Incredible value for money! The smart scales keep me on track, and the protein powders help me meet my daily nutrition goals. The eCookbooks are fantastic too. Highly recommend this pack to anyone about to have weight loss surgery.

So glad I bought this pack!

Love these

I usually like “My New Tum”products and was looking forward to trying this tasteless protein…..but I don’t like the taste of this at all. Really gluggy. It’s just sitting in the pantry now….. Two stars because I still like the company!!

Hi Carmel, oh no! The powder usually dissolves in a few seconds in cold water, but you do need to stir it. Anything hot like tea/coffee or soup it usually dissolves even faster. Did you know you can use it as a dry product? Like adding it to the dry ingredients in baking. Another favourite of mine is to blend it with avocado when I'm making guacamole, or, mixing it with peanut butter and honey, spreading that on toast with banana on top. It's a great way to up the protein content of meals and snacks that are otherwise a bit lacking in nutrition. I have your email address so I will send you our tasteless ecookbook and hopefully you will pull your tasteless protein out of the panty and give it another go? Otherwise, totally happy to refund you, as part of our happiness guaranty!

This bundle is a lifesaver!

This bundle is a lifesaver! From the smart scales to the multivitamins, every item is essential. The 12-month eCookbook subscription is a great bonus. Worth every penny!

Actually tasteless

I’ve tried a few “tasteless “ proteins and struggled with the aftertaste or the clumpy mess when mixing. I find my new tums tasteless protein is just that! And it’s easy to mix in. Great product to boost protein intake.

Excellent multi Vitamin.
