Hi. Got sleeved June 11th so a little over 2 weeks out. I have stalled already. Have lost 23 lbs total with 2 week pre-op diet which I think is great. 23 lbs in 4 weeks isn't anything to be ashamed about but I am so upset at the stall already. Anyone have any suggestions. I am getting about 50 grams of Protein. Eating a lot of refried Beans at this point tho so may be too much fat. Not walking like I should either. Gonna start that soon. Good luck to everyone. Hopefully my scale will move again soon ????

Hi! Congrats on the weight loss. It may be the refried beans in part. My surgeon doesn't allow starches, including potatoes and refried beans until 6 months out. Are the beans fat free?

Thanks @ Rome, no the Beans aren't fat free. Unfortunately my Nutritionist isn't experienced with weight loss patients. She has not told me anything other than get 60 oz of Fluid and 60 grams of Protein daily. I asked her several questions about products that I had read about on these boards such as unjury Protein chicken broth and a whey Protein Drink and she had never heard of them. She hasn't given me any suggestions on what is ok to eat or drink, so have basically been reading the boards to see what I should be doing.

man that would make it hard. For my soft foods I can so cottage cheese, yogurt light ones, sugar free Jello and pudding, puréed Soups, sugar free applesauce and Protein Shakes. My dr calls it the no lumps no bumps stage. For drinks Water, Decaf tea or coffee, propel, Vitamin water zero non fat milk, soy milk. I can also use the crystal light water flavoring which helps me get down more water.

@@danaalonzo, it sounds like you are in a tough situation! I agree with zussieq7- google! I know my program's dietary guidelines are online for the public to see. Great info for all stages, I pasted the link below, which you'll probably have to cut and paste into your browser.

awesome guidelines there. I really like how they give portion sizes as well. In my book we get it gives meal ideas but yours is way more in depth.

Omg Stacie thank u!! That is awesome info. I am only 16 days out but I have already had tuna. Guess I need to go back to more liquids since that is the stage that I should be in & wait till day 23 to eat any tuna or other meat. Really appreciate u sharing that with me. I feel awesome & haven't had any issues with anything that I have eaten but indefinitely want to follow a plan. Thanks again!!!

I am almost 3 and a half weeks out; my surgery was June 4th. Based on other diets I've seen on here, I almost feel like I am eating too much. I have been eating like 2 ounces of chicken or fish for a meal. My usual day consists of a scrambled egg w/ cheese for Breakfast and then 2 oz of chicken, fish, or lean turkey lunch meat for both lunch and dinner. I haven't had any nausea or sickness from it yet...

you're welcome. That is what we are all here for. I'm on soft foods till 4 weeks out then I can add in tuna, potatoes mashed, etc. then 8 weeks out try to start normal foods.

I am the same way Amanda. I wasn't really given a plan to follow. Just told to get 60 oz of Protein so I have been eating about 2 ounces of high protein foods also. But looking at the plans on here I shouldn't be eating them yet. Haven't had nausea or any issues.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
