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.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
