I just had surgery on 1/2/18 and don’t have my post surgery follow up until Friday. I will certainly ask this question at that time, but I am just wondering whether veteran sleevers have ever been given a definitive maximum amount of sugar grams they can have per day. I know that early on it is really preferred to use a sugar substitute and I am following that rule (i.e., using Splenda in hot tea, etc.), but I want to be cognizant of what I’m putting into my (new and improved) body in the future. Thank you.

My nutritionist told me to limit my meals to 10g of sugar or less I am 9 months out and for my total daily sugar count using the MyFitnessPal app on my phone keeps track of the sugar each day and I usually get around 25-30g each day of sugars it’s just how I do my meals and I try to get those early on in my day so no to effect me later on in the day as a type 2 diabetic.

My program says to keep meals at 8g or less. The new nutrition labels coming out by April will show added sugar, when that happens they want us to keep added sugar under 4.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
