What are folks eating for amounts?



Recommended Posts

I am about 7/8 weeks out and I am eating about 4 ounces per meal - within about 30 min

Total calories are around 500- 600 for the day

Does that sound about right? I want to maximize my weight loss during his time and I’ve not added anything other than Proteins yet

On my sheet from the RD, that's pretty textbook. So I've vote yes. :)

Yes I think that sounds pretty reasonable. I'm 4 weeks out and eating 3oz Protein meals so by 7/8 weeks you sound about right x

Same surgery date and same amount of calories per day.
I have been stalled for almost 30 days. Upped my Protein over the last couple of days and it pushed calories up to about 800-850 a day. Hoping to break the stall.

I will follow you both since we are so close in surgery dates to see how you’re doing.

I have about 3-4 oz in an hour. I am now 8 weeks out and kinda stalled for about a month now. I have increased my calories to about 800-900 hoping it will help. Just followed about 3 of you cause we have similar dates and stats :)

Wow your loss is great! I had surgery almost same time as you December 16th and was 240 day of surgery but my current weight is 219, got any tips to accelerate my weight loss? I'm afraid that if I start out slow it's only going to get worse from here

Hi, doing great! Congrats on reaching wonderland. My weight actually stalled since we last updated on this post but I have increased my calories to about 700 and I weighed myself yesterday and I'm down 2 lbs so hopefully it will continue.

Thanks for checking!!!

Great to hear all! I think I hit a stall or something—- or def possible that I’m overreacting :). I haven’t moved the scale since Friday. I started more exercise yesterday and upped the protein/ calories to 700 so hopefully that helps?? First stall for me.
@Lilly... not sure other than only eating Protein even though cleared for all foods. I heard advice to stay at this stage for as long as possible bc you can’t go back once you start with carbs and sugars etc?? Don’t know- making it up as I go along :). Haha
