    Fatboyslim1 got a reaction from Lane1988 in How many calories are you supposed to eat 2 months post-op?   
    Here is a good calculator:. https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/weight-loss/in-depth/calorie-calculator/itt-20402304
    i have calculated my requirement and then cut that in half to give me my basic daily need. For me that's about 900 er day.

    Fatboyslim1 got a reaction from BigJay79 in 3 Month Stall. WTF?!   
    It is entirely possible that you have not "stalled"' you have "stopped". You have hit a daily caloric intake that no longer causes you to lose weight.
    Among other things, you are 80 lbs lighter than when you started so your daily caloric burn is LESS than it was when you started. Think of it this way: whatever you are consuming today, is what it will take for you to maintain your current weight for the rest of your life. That's a good thing!
    First - congratulations on losing close to 80 lbs.
    Second - don't consume any more per day that you have been for the last 3 months.
    Third - get a bit more exercise (enjoy your new self)
    Fourth - try to cut back a little bit on calories (500 per day less would give you a lb per week)
    Give it a try, and see what happens
    luck!

    Sorry to hear that. I am 2-1/2 weeks out, and the happiest I have been in years. I guess it's all about perspective. Just tough it out, as no matter how you feel now, 6 months from now you'll be ready to take on the world !

    I called the local airport today to see if they have hanger space for an antique Bi-plane. I think I will dabble with that for a while, now that I can fit more comfortably in one.

    Fatboyslim1 got a reaction from Honi in THE SLOW LOSERS CLUB SUPPORT THREAD   
    Sadly the average person responding to pleas for help about "stalls" do not offer advise or tips. Instead they say things like "I understand you weight the same as you did a month ago, it happened to me too". Or, "a lot of people report that they go up and down for periods of time, etc...."
    Heres the problem with that: it's basically contrary to what people are asking for, which is: how can I get back on track?
    People do not need excuses to do the same wrong things over and over again. People need encouragement that says things like, "we are human, we slip up and eat too much of the wrong things, and this is what I did to get back on track."
    I would bet that every single long term person on this thread who ever encountered a stall for over a week, realizes in retrospect that their "stall" was directly related to their caloric consumption. If that's so, then say it, dont encourage the same behavior in people when they are reaching out for answers.

    Fatboyslim1 got a reaction from *aqua* in How much soup is too much soup...?   
    Soup is a great go to , but I have found that it really goes right through the stomach. So I have avoided cream Soups because they tend to be high in calories with no "filling" sensation. That said, a cup of good soup in the evening seems to fill the old void of Doritos and a couple beers

    1/2 lb per day is great. Don't know what your goal is, but in another 43 days you will be @ 76kg. Seems pretty good to me.

    Fatboyslim1 got a reaction from BayougirlMrsS in How many years after surgery could you eat a plate of spaghetti without feeling nauseous?   
    I was in a noodle bar at a casino at 1;00 am the other day/night and ordered the spicy beef noodle bowl (which has always been my go to there).
    So it came out, I looked at it and said to myself: "F---me, I used to eat all that?" It was a huge bowl of udon noodles covered in a spicy broth with beef brisket and peppers. So I ate the beef, and all the broth, about 20 noodles and it was glorious. When I was done it was just a giant bowl of noodles, and the waitress said (in broken English) "you no like"?
    I said " I loved it", which I did, and i was stuffed.
    So the answer to your question about when you can eat a bowl of spaghetti again, may be: You might never want to.

    600 is a good number for a couple of months. Crush off as much weight as you can in the first couple of months. You have a whole (now extended) lifetime to eat reasonable meals.

    Fatboyslim1 got a reaction from Uomograsso in Blindsided by an anxiety crisis   
    perhaps you need to think about new types of food, that are different than what you have eaten all your life. Think of food as an exciting adventure in taste, texture, spice, hot, etc..,. Not just sweet and savory.
    The other morning for Breakfast I had a Tomato sliced up in a bowl,large sea salt crystals for crunch, a can of sardines ( in water). on top with a bit of balsamic vinegar and some capers. 200 calories.
    way, way outside of my typical breakfast, but very good and now I want it again. Sure it's easy to eat a bowl of Cereal, but how ordinary ( and fattening).
    There are so many great things to cook / prepare that are not carb loaded crap. Experience new stuff. It's not really that expensive, because now the portions are smal

    You're clearly conflating this person's situation with your own journey. You may be fine and dandy with eating candy floss or twinkies or whatever you like—and if you are, and you are satisfied with the progress you made. Bravo. It's no one's business but yours.
    But no one is actually giving YOU advice in this thread. The distinction worth making it that they're replying to the OP, who ISN'T fine and dandy. They are discouraged. Unlike you, they are unhappy because they are losing weight more slowly than they'd like. They came here for advice on how to change that.
    Fact: It's considerably outside the experience of almost everyone here that a nutritionist would suggest regularly consuming a sugar drink as part of a bariatric diet.

    Fact: The OP is experiencing the EXACT result one would predict from loading up on sugar. The weight loss they would like to experience is slowed.
    Fact: Outside of blood sugar issues, no one actually needs to routinely consume sugary drinks.
    No one is being holier than thou. They're pointing out the obvious. You can argue about this food or that food and the benefits of carbs. But an empty calorie sugar drink hardly seems like the right rock to die on.
    I guess I don't understand why you would fight so hard against the suggestion that they make a change in their diet to see if it improves weight loss.
    I mean, it isn't a question of whether or not they have the "right to eat carbs" or "carbs being evil". It's a question of whether eating less sugar will result in faster weight loss for them. I guess you can argue it won't, but I see whole lot of data points around here that indicate otherwise.
    Peace.

    Fatboyslim1 reacted to loridee11 in 4 weeks post RNY today   
    Today is 4 weeks post RNY surgery for me.
    - Down 16.8 lbs. I've had a couple of times where my weight has stayed stable for more than 5 days in that 4 weeks (including now). Still watching to see if a pattern emerges and trying to take it in stride (not always successfully).
    - No issues with liquids at all (yay!). I have been getting between 80 and 100 most days.
    - Eating up to 4 oz at a time. I haven't tried for more except with greek yogurt (I eat the whole container of the Oikos triple zero which is just over 5 oz).
    - On soft foods for the last 2 weeks and so far I've tolerated everything I've tried (eggs, tuna, Ricotta bake, lunchmeat, etc...). I had chicken for the first time today (canned and made into chicken salad) and that went down well.
    - I can get my Protein in but only if I do a couple of shakes (or max a premier out by adding some collagen).
    - Walking daily up to 1 mile.
    I go back to work on Thursday (I was VERY fortunate to take a full month off). I also plan on starting back with my rowing machine in addition to the walking.
    All in all I am extremely happy with how I've healed so far. I'm looking forward to continuing the journey. I have a lot of work ahead of me to get to a healthy weight but I am hopeful.

    It really doesn't matter if you have stretched your sleeve or not. The size of your sleeve doesn't make you gain or lose weight. What and how much you eat is the only thing you have to think about.
    just eat the same amount you did a year ago. It's that simple. Honestly the "Stretched Sleeve" idea is just an excuse for reverting to old bad eating habits. Which of course many people do.
    you can do this, you've proven it. Don't fail now because of some technicality.
