Would it work to go back to the basics of eating 600-800 calories/day, getting in 60 g of Protein, 64 oz of Water? Maybe two week liquid diet to get started?

Hi all!! Ok here's what I'm thinking!! I really liked the LOSE IT APP... And want to also get back to the basics. Carbs and sweets have been my weakness!! So let's get back to that strictly Protein and the 4oz we're supposed to have... Or do you know of a Bariatric Eating app?? We could use that! What are your thoughts esskay77 and Gradycat!!

I'd just go back to basics (and not all the way back to liquids only - that would just set me up for a binge). Protein-forward and low carb. Eat (dense) Protein first, then non-starchy veggies, and then if you have room, a small serving of fruit or whole grains. I can eat up to 1700 calories a day and maintain my weight, so if I'm trying to lose, I'll drop down to below 1500. I'm not sure if I could do 800 anymore (I could while I was losing, but it would be tough now for more than a day or two)

Going down to such low calories scares me a bit but I do need to scale back.

I'm thinking of doing the official pouch re-set 5-day diet to see what happens. I did it once but it didn't seem to have too much value but maybe trying it again isn't so bad.

I did stop tracking my food so maybe I need to do that again, too.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals
