Bariatric laparoscopic surgery and milk: Milk and yogurts are good sources of calcium and protein for successful weight loss surgery results.  Remember that milk does contain carbohydrates so be sure to add it into your daily intake.  As you know, milk comes in 4 varieties: fat-free, low-fat (1%), reduced-fat (2%), and whole.  It’s interesting to note that all 4 types of milk contain the same amount of protein and carbohydrates which is 12 grams of carbohydrate and 8 grams of protein per cup.   Non-fat milk is the best choice after surgical weight loss as it boasts the least amount of calories at only 90 calories per cup and no fat!  If you add milk to your coffee, choose non-fat versus whole. Whole milk has 8 grams of fat and 150 calories per cup which can add up!
