Water/ hydration before protein?



Recommended Posts

Hello,

I just had the gastric sleeve about 72 hours ago and because of the pain and nausea I am finding it difficult to get my Water intake and my Protein intake where I was told it should be. Am I right that I should be focusing more on water? At this point, I feel like I'm failing miserably on both ends. Any advice would help. Thanks everyone.

Don't worry about anything at this point except Water. Just keep sipping water all day. Dehydration is the #1 reason for ER visits directly after WLS. Your body has enough reserves to keep itself going for a long time without consuming Protein. That will get easier as time goes by. You're not failing, what you're experiencing is completely normal. You got this!

yeah Water, keep sipping. i was told the food source for the body is all that fat we have. i recommend having the water bottles that equal the amount the dr told you and make that your goal.

Water is definitely #1

But, try Protein water of you like fruity water. Best of luck!

i can tell you Protein Water gives me bad gas, also might turn your stool different colors. protein20 mixed berry is pretty good. the grape one freaked me out with green stool.

Has anyone tried the Ensure brand Protein waters, Wal-Mart , blast their greedy little souls deleted Protein20, but they still,have blueberry pomegranate and and a fruity punch flavor, almost $7, hate to throw my money into their gaping financial money-bag if it's no good. 👜

I had my surgery on 1/29. I'm having trouble drinking enough Water and getting in Protein. I started sipping on Premier Protein Clear Protein Drink. P sugar, 20g protein and only 90 calories. I have the Orange Mango. They have a strawberry one too.

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
