Trouble keeping food log



Recommended Posts

I just started the program and I need to keep a food log. Is there an app that can help me with my Protein, fat.and calorie intake for my meals for the month that's easy to use?

I use Bariastic. It also has bariatric friendly recipes for different stages. It keeps up with calories, Protein, Water, weight, measurements, etc. It's super easy and simple to use. Not a bunch of bells and whistles. Some people can link it to their program and the dr's can see. Mine doesn't, but it's available for some people. It's a free app as well.

Oh, I forgot with the Bariastic, you can also time your chewing, between drinking and meals. It's a lot like My Fitness Pal, but like I said it's simple and focused on Bariatric consumers.

I tried Bariastic, and stayed with MyFitnessPal. I even subscribe to MFP for the extra features.

I prefer the MFP because it's simpler and less finger strokes to enter food, and I don't need to be hand held for chewing food.

I've always been hands free from my mobile while eating. I think the best thing is to try out the 2 recommended My Fitness Pal and Bariastic. Someone mentioned less key strokes for MFP and that was the whole reason I deleted it was there was too much going on and I just wanted a simple app to log foods. It felt more like a forum or social media than a simple site. But that's my opinion. I have checked out both. I'm sure there's more. I've even thought about going the old school route and just using plain pen and paper.

I know your question is in the pre-op. Pre-op, you eat a lot more food than post-op. Post-op I have been on normal foods for a long while now, and I generally eat right, so now I just mentally log my Protein (most important) and Water amounts on most days.

      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.
