ohh quantity varies with each person. So it is hard to say I have just moved to mushies and can only each 2oz of chili in one sitting (sitting takes me almost half hour to eat it). I have heard others can tolerate up to 4 oz. It really depends on swelling how much is still there and length of stomach.

I still have to have at least one Protein shake a day to meet my Protein intake. As I progress through to more solid foods I will hopefully get all my protein from food and only a shake once in awhle. I could be dreaming but I am hopeful.

Here is mine (I'm approx. 14 weeks out).

B - Scrambled or boiled egg (one egg white only)

L - 4 oz. grilled chicken or shrimp (beef once or twice a week)

snack 1- 1 oz nuts (love pistachios)

Snack 2 - A fruit or one whole wheat toast with cheese or hummus

D - 4 oz. grilled chicken or shrimp

I usually keep my daily input to 500-600 calories, Protein - 60-70 grams, carbs and fats to under 30 grams.

Sam,

how do you prepare your beef?!? I was so worried about never being able to taste steak again... Even a bite would make me happy :)

Is there anything that you definitely do not eat because it caused issues with your stomach? I know everyone is different, but knowing what causes issues for others will make me more cautious!

Thanks!

I usually have filet mignon. My wife is the 'Top Chef' in the house but I know she marinates it overnight (in yogurt and spices) and then cooks it in a non stick pan (without any oil).

I can eat pretty much anything now. Some items bothered me the first time I had them (bread, beef) but nothing too serious and then over time I had no problem with them. I've never tried any soda, sweets or heavily fried stuff after the operation so I can't speak to those.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
