Nutritional Information Question

Recommended Posts

Hi sleevers!

Long story short, my practice lost their NUT. I’ll be seeking out a new one next month, but there was A LOT of information I was NOT given, so I’m asking for some serious help.

I was using the Baritastic app, but I’ve seen everyone on the boards talking about how My Fitness Pal is so much better because it tracks so much more. So, I just bit the bullet and purchased the premium version.

all I can say is HOLEY MOLEY!!! So many questions and information! And I have NO IDEA what I’m doing.

I realize that every plan is different, but the only information I was given by my previous NUT was to track Fluid, calories and Protein. But I see the majority of you are tracking all kinds of things. Micros, macros, carbs and so much more.

In lieu of my NUT being gone, can you guys help me out with what you’re tracking and what your daily goals are? Like I said, I realize everyone is different, but I really need some idea about what to track and what my goals should be. Like, what is your max carb intake? Micros? Macros? I’m so lost at the moment. Any help you can provide would be so very appreciated.

I’ll let you know my stats as well:
Female, 34 years old.
HW: 311
SW: 256 (5/10/18 VSG)
CW: 222
GW: 145
I’ve lost 49 inches since surgery, but I still have trouble keeping solids down. I’m basically sticking to the soft foods and liquids for right now. I get very few calories and protein at the moment, but I’m hitting 64oz or more of fluid each day.

And I just want to take this moment to say thank you so very much to all of you for your constant advice and support. I don’t know what I’d do with you guys. Even the tough love I sometimes get is invaluable.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
