Including your personalized protein powder in your diet may help with gastroparesis. For individuals with gastroparesis, the optimal diet typically involves eating very small and frequent meals throughout the day to allow time for gastric emptying. Avoiding high fiber and high fat foods can help as well.
Eating too much fiber, fat, or simply eating large meals can exacerbate your symptoms and delay gastric emptying even further. We recommend drinking liquids in between meals/snacks, rather than with meals. If you have diabetes, you definitely want to make sure to keep that under control, too! That is one of the biggest contributors to gastroparesis, and can make the condition worse if not controlled well.
Your Registered Dietitian would be more than happy to work with you to figure out the best way to integrate protein powder into your diet. You can get in touch by logging into Gainful.com and navigating to the "My Dietitian" tab.
Lastly, we always recommend consulting with your physician before starting any new dietary supplement, especially if you have any pre-existing medical conditions or are taking medication.
