    You are pre op and worried you wont be able to consume enough protein in your diet plan.
    60 to 100 is the norm set by dieticians. Honestly, hitting a protein goal is not a big deal. Eating and getting your calories and macros becomes normal over time.
    No one, Absolutely no one on this site eats a 100% protein diet. (Other foods are included in your plan) As you progress out, your restriction becomes less. It’s much easier to eat a variety of food and still get your protein in. Vegan protein sources are wonderful.
    The bariatric mantra of “protein first” is only in the beginning stages. Newly out from surgery your pouch restriction is tight. It’s hard to consume 500/800 calories. Your calories and ability to consume more food will increase over time.

    Foods like yogurt are pretty slippery and soft, so you usually don't feel the restriction or satiety with them that you do with something more solid like meat or cheese, so it is quite normal that you can eat more yogurt than the nominal 2-3 ounces that is often stated. I could likewise go through a normal 5-6 oz yogurt serving at that time, though I usually just kept it to 4 oz as that was adequately satisfying for me, and provided enough Protein for that particular meal/snack (though by that time I was also throwing in a few berries for added nutrition and variety.)

    Fantastic advice above.
    None of us get to avoid stress and major life issues (Family/friend’s passing away, Illness, divorce, financial difficulties. etc.) Be prepared and develop a plan.
    @FluffyChix post on doing the headwork is a great resource.

    Wow! So I hear ya. And understand!
    I don't want to sound as if I'm dismissing your ultimate goal. Cuz I understand having a driving focus.
    But as the others have said, "Wow and congrats!!!!"
    174lbs in a year is PHENOMENAL!!!!!!!!!! Please take some time to embrace your accomplishment!!!!! At 384lbs down to 210lbs, the reality is you probably have quite a good amount of excess skin left?
    Also you don't mention if you are female or male? What height? Have you had a DXA scan to see how much fat to lean body mass you have?
    I can also assure you that your surgeon is gonna be super happy with your progress!!!!
    And just because you are 12months, doesn't mean the party is over! I'm 21 months almost 22 months out and I can still lose. I'm at 131.2lbs this morning down from 287lbs recent high weight. The last 20lbs are the HARDEST to get off. I had to totally bear down, do IF, eat ridiculously lean and clean and not party in order to do it and it still took as long as it took to lose the first part!
    Continue to work your plan. Take the stress off yourself. You body has its own timeline. It won't be rushed. But you do your part every day with building new relationships with food, eating right, getting your fluids, your vits, and exercising and you will get there!!!

    yes - that seems like a lot to lose in one year. Did they possibly mean your ULTIMATE goal rather than your one-year goal? If the latter, that is pretty ambitious. I was 316 the morning of surgery and 190 at my one-year appt. My surgeon was ELATED....

    I think they'll be MORE than happy with 174 pounds in a year! Don't stress yourself to make that arbitrary goal.
