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.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
