We recommend a minimum of 60 grams of protein every day after surgery, and ideally, 80 grams a day. Initially, you will only be able to meet this goal by using protein shakes. Over time, our goal is for you to meet your protein requirements through healthy food choices, not protein shakes. Around 6 months to a year after surgery, we have most patients stop counting protein and start counting vegetables!
