Protein goals and Fruit



Recommended Posts

HI- I had surgery a few months ago and recently joined a boot-camp exercise class. The instructor gave the class a goal of trying to eat your weight in Protein grams per day. So, currently I am around 200, which would mean I would need to aim for 200 grams of protein a day. It seems extreme. The other nutrition question I have surrounds fruit. I try to eat an apple a couple of times a week, but they are high in carbs. Is this OK or should I try a different fruit?

Be careful taking nutritional advice from someone without bariatric expertise. Our needs are different and since our volume is so restricted, you have to do a balancing act.

I eat fruit most days. Sometimes it’s a small amount of peaches with my morning oats. Or some berries with yogurt or 1/2 cup of mango . It’s yummy, healthy and also helps to satisfy sweet cravings

Im like 5.5 weeks out from vsg and literally just yesterday spoke with my nutritionist about this same issue. In my case, she instructed me to add more carbs (i am having almost no carbs) through some fruit (about 1/3 - 1/2 cup) per day. Im still only getting about 80g of Protein per day so I can’t even imagine 236 grams (my cw).

200g of Protein is a lot. I'm currently taking in about 160g per day, and I'm 6'3" and around 225lbs. I've been able to build muscle well at abou 0.7g per lb of body weight.

I drink 16oz of Fairlife milk (look it up) in the morning with Breakfast. That's 26g

I drink a Premier Protein shake in the afternoon. That's 30g

I drink another 16oz of Fairlife in the evening, post-workout, before bed. That's another 26g.

So, all in, I drink 82g per day I addition to my food intake.

Hi Tom,
So you're a few months out and still in weight loss mode. I would follow your bariatric dietitians advice and hold off on following a trainer's advice. Log your food in a food app. Track your carb intake. If you're adding fruit as a part of your carbs make sure they stay within your weight loss carb ratio

You are a bad ass doing boot camp. Keep your dietician updated on your fitness program and calories burned. See what they suggest.

Your stats say you have 55 to lose. (Not sure if that’s correct) If you choose to take your trainers advice and up your calories, Protein, and carbs. keep and eye on the scale to see if it slows/stops your weight loss.

Your diet may change and evolve as your fitness level increases. You will be looking at your calories burned, metabolic rate and fitness goals. @BlueCrush is a great mentor.

      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.
