Recommended Posts

There is nothing wrong with you. Try the following:

1) Tracking your Calories and Macros (Fat, Carbs, Protein):

  • Carbs - 25g
  • Fat - 35g
  • Protein - 135g

2) Increase your vegetable intake with no starchy vegetables (Cucumbers, Spinach, Kale, Broccoli, Tomatoes, Lettuce)

3) Drink 64 oz of Water. (When you feel hunger, drink 8 oz of Tea)

4) Be mindful that it may be head hunger and physical hunger. (This is where the tea will help).

I just discussed this with my RD. And she suggested what @Sleeve1stFitNext said. She said introduce texture and Fiber while keeping your quantities normal for your time frame of surgery and food progression.

Mine is supposed to be 1/2c volume. She said right now for me it's volume. At 2 months, you may be by weight. But instead of soft foods, go for normal food textures. Take the tiny bites, track everything, eat slowly, chew like hell, don't add liquids until your pouch is empty.

It's made all the diff in the world with satiety and portion control! Hope it helps!

Are you keeping a journal of what you are eating? If not you should. The journal could tell you howuch Protein, carbs, fiber, .... You are getting.

I use an app called MyFitnessPal. It has a desktop/web version. The app can use a smartphone to scan a foods barcode in, and it will 99% be accurate. Also has a search function for it's databases. You enter your serving size. Also tracks Water, weight and physical dimensions. FREE. Paid version let you customize meals and goals.

Increasing vegetables can fill you up. I would oftentimes put a little virgin olive oil in a frying pan with broken up cauliflower, seasoned with a spice and fry it until it was soft and slightly crunchy.
