This might help. My surgeon has done longitudinal research on 1700 of his bypass patients, tracking and following their progress - health, weight loss, eating.
On average, they are getting around 800 calories a day, one year post op. But that is an average - some will be higher and some lower. I am sorry, I don’t know if he factors in exercise...
I had my gastric bypass surgery 3 months ago and I feel great I have lost 25kg so far and I need to lose 10 more to reach my goal, the problem is I have hit a plateau and lately I have been incredibly hungry and I'm afraid I might be stretching my pouch. I've started doing p90x3 two weeks ago and i definitely fell hungrier.
I want to know how many calories are you guys getting a day, how are those calories divided macros wise. For the most part I've been sticking to 1000-1300 calories a day and I have been eating quite clean but I've "cheated" a couple of times and I've felt that "desperate binge eating feeling" I have been able to resist it for the most part.
How do you guys curve your cravings and again what is your calorie intake while excercising
Try to keep it to just one piece of fruit per shake and you should be fine. Also you can add all the veggies you want, I personally love adding a cup or two of spinach (lots of Iron and fiber) and it doesnt change the flavor profile that much, some people swear by kale.
