For best results....

Question for vets...I’m 6 weeks out, getting all my fluids, Protein in and carbs about 20g. I’m wanting to make sure I’m getting maximum weight loss in these first 6 months (I’m a revision and terrified of not being successful this time) but I see conflicting information about either keeping calories low (around the 600 mark) or eating more to get calories in the 800-1000 range because “your not eating enough”. What is your experience when in the losing phase?

Not a VET but perhaps...

TRIAL AND ERROR

Go with the plan laid out for you by your Team and revise it if needed. Usually low cal will do it but also switching things up when you think you need to.

Revision results are different from 1st time surgeries. Some say slower. But you can still achieve great results in the long run.

Thank you. So far my weight loss with revision is the same as I lost with the sleeve. My team guidelines say under 1000 calories and under 50 carbs, but honestly that just seems high to me and I’m hoping to no not waste time eating much to find out it doesn’t work for me. By the same logic I don’t want to eat too little either, lol.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
