OK so I know the big focus is on Protein but how many carbs do you get in a day? Today I got around 40 and I am 6 weeks out.

My target for calorie intake is 800 calories per day and 65-70 grams of Protein . If I consume 70 gr of Protein, which equals to 280 calories, then the rest of calories come from carb/fat. I stick to not going over 800 calories per day. However, I do sometimes go over 70 gram of protein, which lessens the carb/ fat that I consume that day.

How many calories r u targeting per day.? My goal is to each 1000 calories by the end of the third month, April.. based on what my nut provided. I am not interested in losing too fast. I feel that a healthy variety of foods will set a healthy habit for me in the long run.

I'm trying to reach for like 600 but I have a hard time getting in even 500 most days.

I'm 5 months out and try for 1000 calories and 75 carbs. I was getting under 50 carbs but kept getting light headed so I'm upping the carb to see if I was to low. I get 80-100 grams of Protein a day. I don't track much else. Sugar meh I keep low less than 20. No one told me to use these numbers but they are working for me.

It's just crazy to me how little I can eat. I message out 3 ounces of stuff and get maybe an ounce.

Most days I am at 15 carbs or under. Every two weeks I allow myself to have a big carb day which is around 60 carbs. But my body has alway reacted bad to carbs/sugar. I am a sugar addict. If I start to crave sugar/carbs then I know I need to lower my daily intake.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
