I’m not satisfied at eating 2-3 oz my doctor says to eat every 2 hours of Protein. I’m scared I have stretched my stomach, because I fell off my healthy eating. How can I get back to eating small like I use and not wanting more?

Try really hard to stick with it a few days and you likely will be satisfied again with the small amounts. I find carbs = cravings. It's very unlikely you stretched anything (most surgeons say it's not possible beyond a small amount)

I’m about 2 years out and I have been eating my Protein like eggs and tuna, but when I get home I’m snacking on candy and junk.

I would suggest that you :

re commit to the original dietGet rid everything that would be considered junk by your surgeon or NUT.

ADD MORE Water.

Eat larger portions of denser Proteins.

Add healthy fats

Drink warm liquids (teas, low sugar cocoa, coffee ) when you feel the need to have something late at night

Have a snack of the pleasure foods once in a while, not all the time.

Voice your concerns to your team.

Remember that you're human.

Thank you. So you think I should stay away from things like almonds and pistachios?




I think everything in moderation,
Continue or start to food journal. I use myfitness pal. You'll begin to see how much they "cost" you and if they are worth having all the time or just occasionally

I have a bit of a problem with nuts and they’re high calorie, so if you can’t stop at one portion (1 oz) then you may want to avoid them. To solve my problem when I buy them I immediately seperate the package into 1 oz ziplocks and put them out of sight. Then when I want them I just take a single ziplock and remove the risk of munching throughout the day or eating too much.
