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

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
