I am two months post-op with the sleeve. Getting all my Protein, but carbs are hard to get unless I drink Gatorade everyday. I feel like I'd rather eat healthy carbs. How are you getting 40 grams of carbs?

This is odd, carbs are in *almost* everything (except pure animal meat sources, pure vegetable fat sources) What are you consuming daily? Can you give examples of your diet?

Some days I don’t get 40 carbs. I don’t stress about it.

Some days I’m a bit over, usually if I have oatmeal for Breakfast which is about once a week. Most of my carbs seem to come from my yogurt and things like Beans that may be in Soups I make.

Wait, what? I never knew there was a minimum carb goal? Is this pretty common on most plans?

There is almost nothing in common on most plans except Protein and hydration being top tier in importance...

I do have one more nutrition appointment before my surgery on the 28th. I need to ask about it if its not brought up. I know they want the carbs we do consume to be from produce and legumes mainly,but had no idea there may be a minimum amount.

I second that. This is the first I've heard of consuming any amount of carbs as in a specific number. Maybe the further along I get my NUT will mention it. Is it a part maintenance?

My nutritionist says 40-50 grams of carbs and 60-80 grams of Protein.

I have an Atkins shake for breakfast, 2-3 ounces of protein and 1/2 cup of salad at lunch, and Atkins shake in the afternoon, and 2-4 ounces of protein and 1/2 cup of veggies at dinner, plus a sugar free popsicle for a snack. That means I still need the 12 ounces of Gatorade to get all my carbs.

I drink Pure Protein shakes that come in a can. There are 35 grams of protein per can and I drink two a day. I have vanilla Cream and Frosty chocolate.

Isn't regular Gatorade pure sugar? So your remaining carbs come from sugar? That feels / seems like empty calories

      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!!  😈
