    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

    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.

    Yesterday, Thu, Nov. 14
    Maintenance : 5'2" / 1yr PO Sleeve / 115.6 lbs

    ...seriously felt like I was eating all day long...then had a major dessert and snack binge in the evening while watching movies with the fam. The problem was that all the Snacks were laid out on the ottomans in front of me and I just kept mindlessly picking at the spread for like 3 hours. Key word being: MINDLESSLY.

    9:30am - coffee w/ stevia
    12:00pm - salad greens w/ vinaigrette + 1/2 an avocado + 6 oz grilled chicken
    3:00pm - .5 oz chicharron + 1.5 oz beef Jerky + 1 Keto choco-coconut Fat Bomb + 3/4 of a KIND nut bar
    6:00pm - Avocado Toast (1/4 avocado + salt + pepper + garlic powder + 1/2 slice Keto bread) + 1.5 oz mangoes + 1 KIND nut bar
    8:30pm - salad greens w/ vinaigrette + carrots + 1.2 oz gala apple + 1 snack can of lemon pepper tuna + 1 tbsp mayo + 1/2 cup tofu pudding
    9:00pm to 12:30pm - 5 peanut candies + 3oz apple + 1 oz cheese + 2.5 oz beef jerky + 1.5 oz dried mangoes

    Totals: 2566 cals - 165g Protein - 179g NET carbs - 116g fat

    @Meryline: welcome to the thread! I'm actually glad to see your high cal intakes...not many post higher cal menus here (I think I'm probably the only one right now) ❤️.
    P.S. Im also looking to up my running game (like you I only started running this year).

    Yeah, I wouldn't be able to performa as I am if I didn't.
    I do however reduce total calories, and naturally also carbs, when I'm not doing as much.
    I have yet to taste them. I'll probably try after my spin class today.

    @FluffyChix the 150ml was in the beginning, now it's more. 200-300 ml as well i think. It's all about what it is.
    Also, some days I can have a lot more, and some days I can only have a few bites.

    I think I need to join this thread. I'm 2.5+ years out. It's strange to be considered a "veteran" and being in maintenance hehe.
    Very quickly after surgery we were told we could eat up to about 150ml. It didn't mean we were able to, but we could. I stayed there for a long time. Now I'm up to between 200-300g of food, all depending on what it is. I know what will make me fuller quicker, so I portion less, and what I will need more of to get full. And most of the time it's spot on. Sometimes I'll have to leave stuff. When I have salad or lots of veggies, I can eat more.
    I meal prep a lot, freezer is full of portions of food. My meals are Protein heavy, preferably 20-40g.
    I don't really track anymore, but I'm stable, so I know it's around 2500-3000kcal a day.
    Today I have had the following, and it's now 1:30pm.
    A Protein Shake (every single day I start with on)
    125g of blueberries and 125g of raspberries. (Unusual treat)
    660 ml of cold latte macchiato light (Usually a coffe from home with milk, ran out of milk)
    A protein bread roll with butter and salami on one half and turkey cold cut on the other half
    A portion of chicken in taco Tomato Soup thing, with some sour cream on (Spicy)

    Wow, that looks like a lot lol. I'll probably have another roll (happen to have one left) before my spinning class this evening, and then time will tell if I'll be able to eat propper dinner or if I'll make a smoothie which will have both Protein Powder, oats, berries etc. in it.
    Sorry for the long post

    I actually never really got dumping from carbs. But give me a sugar/fat combination, and I still get dumping. Ice cream is the devil.

    So I have had issues with getting enough energy after endurance sport (I'm a distance runner and a spinning instructor) because I'm not hungry after I run especially. And when I have weeks like this week with 4 spin sessions, 4 runs and a strength workout, I need to refule.
    At the store today I discovered these. Now I'm sure in the future I can make them myself, but for now I'll try these.
    It's dates and almonds and dates and coconut. That's it. Nothing more. So I figured I'd have 1-2 (2 is a portion) of these right after a run, and then a Protein Shake. This should be enough until I get hungry 1-2h after I run.
    I know a lot of people are scared of carbs here, but I'm not. I eat 2500-3000 kcal a day, weight is stable, has been for the past 1.5, and I lots of carbs.
    That works for me. I'm 2.5+ years post op.

    @Meryline So happy to see you here! And happy to know at 2 years you are around the same capacity as me by gram weight. But I eat way more than 2/3cup of food (150ml) at a time. My volume is around 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups with more veggies.

    @Healthy_life2 I haven't. I need to figure out where I can get them in Austria.
    My problem is that I have no hunger after a workout, and I can't make myself eat. And two of those dates balls rolls, what ever they are, will give me as much carbs as the whole bar. That bar will give me more calories, but it's about getting a lot, in a little, if that makes sense.

    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.

    They shouldn't judge you or be against you taking care of your health.
    Wait until you have a date, until you start liquid diet, which I assume you have to be on, I didn't, but in the US, everyone does. It will give you more time, but also more information from your doctors etc. to inform them why this is something you want to do.
    Good luck, best decission I ever made.

    @FluffyChix it's spelt. It's pre cooked so I just add it to my meal that I meal prep, and then when I heat it in the micro, it's all the cooking it need. Or the last 3 min to a stew of sorts.

    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.

    Patches are not proven to work. Many surgeons specifically disallow them.
    10,000 calories. I’m kinda speechless
    @FluffyChix wrote 1,000 cals, not 10,000
    BUT ....
    Something though doesn't add up,
    You had VSG at 178 lbs (29.6 BMI). Your Goal weight is 108, an 18 BMI, which is underweight. You are only drinking Protein Shakes. 50 g of Protein. Assuming you are drinking PP or Muscle Milk, you're getting only about 300 cals You are exercising to the extreme. These are huge red flags for an eating disorder and/or body dysmorphia
