Well ditch the alcohol.....

You don't list what you are eating, so more info is needed from you.

My tip would be to have a Protein Shake (one scoop) in the morning. I usually mix it with 4 oz of almond milk and 2 oz of frozen fruit. Then for lunch I have a pouch of tuna fish 7 crackers. One snack in the afternoon of 1 oz of veggie chips. dinner is 4 Oz of meat (chicken,fish or pork) 8oz of veggies (like squash,green Beans or broccoli). Then during the day I drink Water about 96 oz. I don't drink any alochol or anything sweet. Just water. During my 6 months of supervision I have lost 60 lbs.

Seashell29's list looks good. My question is whether you've met with a nutritionist? Have you been given some paperwork by your surgeon's office? I don't know how far from surgery you are, but there are usually pretty specific instructions about pre-op diets--many people have to do all liquids; some have Protein Shakes for Breakfast and lunch with a lean dinner. But you should definitely be receiving guidance from your medical team.

And I'm pretty sure you know the alcohol and hotwings are not good choices . . .

What are you doing in the gym for 2.5 hours? Maybe that's too long and it causes hunger or the feeling that you can eat those things?

I gave up alcohol about a month before surgery. I had a protien shake for breakfast pre op (and now still post op). I would have a snack in the morning a few hours after breakfast and a snack in the afternoon a few hours after lunch.

I also used, still do, My Fitness pal, that may stop you from eating poorly. Seeing the calories and fat in these things.

Okay, for my pre-op dinners, I had a salad, a Protein, and veggies--I was told to steam them, but ugh, so I roasted them--better flavor, no more calories (or only a few from a dash of olive oil). For the protein, I had mostly fish--just bought a bag of frozen flounder and fixed that various ways. It was, frankly, not the best choice, because it's such a flat fish. I would have been happier with tilapia or salmon. I mostly baked the fish with lemon and herbs. Will admit to putting panko on it and sauteeing it once. The veggies should be the nonstarchy ones--green Beans or zucchini or spinach. A couple of nights I just had a spinach and cheese omelet. I had chicken a few times, once in a sort of salad with mayo, an apple, some celery, some cranberries, and some walnuts--sort of a take on a Waldorf salad. I had dessert, too, either sugar-free pudding or one of the sugar-free fudgesicles or popsicles. I was having Protein Shakes for the other two meals, so my total daily calories weren't that high--but I didn't lose a lot on my pre-op diet. Didn't gain, though.
