One of the more difficult aspects of a bariatric diet that is not talked about often is shopping. Not only can it be expensive, but it can also be hard to know exactly what to buy and where to find it! 

This page is great for bariatric patients who are unsure of what to buy and how much. Often this page will upload their weekly shopping trip and show exactly what they bought. This gives the followers a clear picture on how much, or how little, they need to buy.

Following the shopping trip, meal prep is often the next step. The Bariatric Queen will usually show the process of taking the bought groceries and how to meal prep them quick and easy! This makes it easier to stay on track when all of your meals are already prepared.

A major struggle many bariatric patients face is having time to cook healthy recipes on a daily basis. Many recipes that consist of healthy foods have considerable preparation times associated with them. For that reason, meal prepping is one of the best ways to save both time and money while on a bariatric diet.

Meal prepping is the process of preparing large quantities of food (usually at the beginning of the week) and storing them in meal-sized amounts. Whenever it is time to eat, simply grab a meal that is already prepared out of the fridge and enjoy!

This page gives great tips and how to meal prep according to the bariatric diet. It also gives details on what to include within each meal to ensure you are reaching all of the macronutrients needed per day.

Keeping the weight off following a weight loss surgery has two components-- a healthy diet and consistent exercise. Jenna focuses more on the exercise habits for bariatric patients and gives great how-to videos for workout routines.

Jenna will post video guides of how to perform any and every exercise she recommends. Along with that, she will upload entire routines to follow depending on how long ago your surgery was. Exercises for a person who had their surgery a week prior will be different to someone who had it months ago. By sticking to a proper exercise routine the pounds will stay off much easier than only sticking to a healthy diet. She does upload some healthy eating habits and recipes meaning that you can fulfill all of your needs on one page!
