Check out the Baritastic app as well. It's free and does the same things as myfitnesspal. It works with your fitbit, etc.

I use Bariastic and I've put in my personal recipes. I love goulash and have never had it like that. Can you send me the recipe in my private messages?

I just saw a recipe for a stuffed bell pepper bake. it uses beef, white rice, bell peppers, cheese, garlic, and Tomato sauce. I thought about doing it with ground chicken, bell peppers, mozzarella, garlic, diced Italian tissues, and quinoa

Sounds good to me, you and FluffY Chix are our chefs on BP. Both of you really rock in the KITCHEN.

This is my go-to recipe calculator: https://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.asp

Since what counts as "a serving" varies so much for me, here is what I do to get the Protein per serving:

  • Weigh the pan I'll be using
  • Use a recipe calculator set to "this makes one serving" to get the total protein for whatever I'm making.
  • Cook the food.
  • Weigh the pan again once I'm done cooking.
  • Subtract the first weight from the second (to remove the pan and find out what the food weighs).
  • Now I have the total protein (from the online calculator) and however many ounces of food the recipe makes!
  • Now divide the total amount of protein by the total amount of ounces to get the protein per ounce.
  • When you measure out your meal, you can weigh how many ounces you serve yourself and figure out how much protein that is by multiplying.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
