Right now? 30-50g a day because I'm on the liquid diet, lol. :47_tired_face::47_tired_face::47_tired_face:

Post-surgery, long-term, I'll probably be at 65-70% of my diet as carbs because I'm a vegan. (Those carbs will be from fruit, veggies, Beans, oatmeal, potatoes, bread, rice, and other whole grains, and very few if any from sweeteners or processed food.) That's way more than most post-WLS patients, who tend to severely restrict carbs, so this might not be the answer you're looking for.

I recommend reading How Not to Die by Dr. Michael Greger or watching Forks Over Knives on Netflix for some info on how plant foods like I mentioned above help you maintain a healthy weight and protect you from disease. You can also check out Dr. Matthew Weiner on YouTube, who's a bariatric surgeon who promotes plant foods ahead of the standard Protein diet.

Just thought I'd share my opinion in addition to the many keto and low-carb comments you'll see on this thread. *makes angel face*

My surgery was mid December. My carbs now are typically around 50g a day, occasionally up to 100. I am averaging about 750 calories a day now - 3 meals, 1/2 cup each one, good mixed food. One meal is a Protein Shake so that I can get over 50g of Protein a day...

I've been keeping my carbs to no more than 30g per day to make sure I stay in ketosis. x

Think I get about half my calories from them.

30-40g but I'm not sure if that's the right amount. I'm a little confused by it myself. I'm losing about 2-3 lbs a week now which seems to be good to me.
