How much protein and calorie intake



Recommended Posts

How much Protein and calories should I be having or intake in a day at two and a half weeks and does that change or is it the same for the next year? Also is this realistic, are you able to do it and if so what is your diet like?

Carbs too! I know your brain needs carbs to keep functioning, but how much per day should be aimed for???

I just emailed my NUT this same question. I can pass on what she says... but I'd suggest emailing your NUT if you can. Mine actually prefers emails to visits, which works out nicely for me and my wallet!

I'm currently 3 wks post op (well, 3 wks post op tomorrow, actually), and I'm getting in about 900-1100 calories per day, 80-95g Protein per day and about 50-70 carbs per day.

I track everything on MVP - mostly to watch my Protein intake because I feel like I don't eat enough to get too many calories or carbs at this point.

My Dr suggests at least 60 grams of carbs, but I'm 10 months out and get in about 100 grams a day. I do better with low carb and try to do 30 grams of carbs or less a day. The further out you get the more you can eat and get more Protein in. I feel much better getting in 100 grams vs 60 grams, but that is just me.

As far as calories I eat about 1200 a day but I'm 10 months out. Some fays I do eat more just depends on my body. I don't starve myself but try to really eat Protein first.

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
