To eat....or not to eat?!?



Recommended Posts

I am 2 weeks out from gastric bypass, and am wondering how others are planning their meals. I drink my Protein at Breakfast then start on my Water, but I'm not really sure when to eat. My body isn't telling me it's time....but I know I need to eat something! Ideas? Schedules? Routines? I'm open to all ideas as I have NO habits to break

Honestly like you i had no feeling of hunger for quite some time. In fact if I got off track, i would completely forget to eat and to drink.

So, i began starting an alarm and eating to a schedule. I would measure my food and try my best to eat what was being asked of me but most times i could not even get that down. So, I focused on Water because I knew it was the number 1 priority.

Can you tell me an example of your schedule?

Mine for example went like this::

8:30am 8oz Protein shake with banana

2:00pm 1/2 avocado w/pepper

6:00pm 1/2 a avocado, tablespoon of non fat cottage cheese, tablespoon of mashed potatoes

w/gravy

7:30pm sugar free popsicle

Every time food was eaten it was because I knew I needed to eat, not because I was hungry.

I drank 48oz of Water and 1-G2 throughout the day and struggled to get that done
