I had a bypass 4 weeks ago, recovering well but not yet back to 100% energy levels. I am told after surgery you should eat lots of protein but I started a strict vegan diet (Ornish reversal diet) 3 months ago and don't want to interrupt the good work this is doing to reduce my cholesterol (been under 3.0 since January). Would it be sensible to take a protein suppliment? My son is into working out and today persuaded me to buy a Soya Protein suppliment to take daily as extra protein. Also I may consider eating fish occasionally - would tinned salmon and tinned tuna be good sources of protein to take? I have tried eating more beans but not finding this very appetising.
