    I tried to find a thread where people share their meal prep, but didn't find a dedicated one, so hopefully this can become one.
    Meal prep has been the key for me, so I thought I would share here as I meal prep throughout the week.
    I'll post recipes if anyone want particular ones. And feel free to share your meal prep
    Today I had some eggs that needed to be used, so today I made crust less quiche and instant pot egg bites

    Oh wow! Girl! Great thread!!! I can't wait to play. Your quiche and egg bites look AHHHH-may-zing!!!
    I don't really "meal prep" but it's so strange how we always have extras to be frozen. LOL. Right now I have frozen:
    green chile with pork
    red chile with turkey and venison
    gumbo - chicken and venison/pork sausage
    tuscan Soup - chicken with cauliflower
    grilled chicken strips
    grilled beef fajita meat
    meatballs and sauce
    tamales (for splurging at Christmas from last Christmas) LOL.
    I'm making foil wrapped basa filets for dinner. Will try to take a pic. You can make multiple seasonings with it and store them for a few days. It reheats well and is super low cal/low carb/low fat.

    There is no shame on her, I'm sorry, but because it goes against what everyone else has heard, it sounds like a made up rule.
    Now replacing a meal with shakes it's different. And no I don't care what your nutritionist said, it's not the Protein Shakes that drives the weight loss, it's the calorie deficit you are in. Protein helps you feel full and retain some muscles, but it doesn't drive the weight loss.
    Follow your doctor, but question things that goes against every other doctor.
    I have lost over 100lbs and I started food 4 days after surgery. Food and shakes to get enough protein. I still drink a shake a day, but as a supplement to get enough, which is 120-150g a day. I drink it on top of all my meals.

    Honestly, food. You need to get more food in you. Something muschy. Try mashed potatoes, Soups, something that will give you energy. With your weight being so low already, drinking only shakes and Water at this stage is too little.

    Ice cream is the devil. Sorbet it easier. Halo top is fine. But regular ice cream is the 👿

    Yay, happy to see other runners and high cal people.
    I actually haven't done a proper tracking in a while, maybe today I should try.
    Let me know if you have any questions. I started at 0 in February and this week it will probably be around 45km.

    Let's try tracking today
    250ml iced Latte macchiato light - 79 cal, 1.3g fat, 9.8g carbs, 7.3g Protein
    330ml Protein Shake - 165 cal, 3.6g fat, 7.6g of carbs, 25.4g protein
    180g yogurt with müsli combo - 261 cal, 12.4 fat, 22.1 carbs, 13.5 protein
    505 calories - 17.3g fat - 39.5 carbs - 46.2 protein
    And it's noon. In Austria we don't do net carbs, so this is like all the carbs lol
    I have 30min run in a little bit, but I also have to think about my 90min run tomorrow, and the fact that I have 5 days of heavy workouts behind me. A little more than normal this week.
    So more eating later on hehe

    Wow, amazing full list. You are a bariatric bad ass. Update us on the runs when you have time.
    My mother passed away from cancer in 2013 I had surgery in June 2014. My goal was to do a 5K in her memory. First 5k (turkey trot) in November 2014 . Race for the cure was on Mother’s Day. Emotional to cross the finish line. I went on to do 10, half and full marathons. Still amazed that I’m doing this in my 50’s.
    I carb load for half and full marathons. My bariatric team had no clue how to fuel with a bariatric stomach. I hired a sports medicine dietician to help me dial things in. I learned many things from the other bari -athletes on this site. I love shalane Flanagan (Olympic runner) book. Eat slow run fast.
    I am doing race to Robbie creek half marathon. It’s an elevation mountain trail run. Idaho wine run half or full. Beautiful vineyards and wine tasting after party. I’m still deciding on charity runs for 2020.
