Nearing my 6 month mark (May 1). Anything else different you'd be eating? Here's where I am at today. For dinner I'll be having a Turkey burger patty with a slice of cheese and some green Beans or mashed cauli, putting me at around 800 cals and 85g Protein (the Turkey burger has 23g alone). I don't feel comfortable adding in more carbs yet =/ Carbs scare me since they were my vice. I exercise regularly and intensely 3 times a week.

PS. No I didn't eat a "stick" of garlic. lolol. It was a beef and chicken stick.

I think my trainer and nutritionist both want me to eat more carbs and more calories but I get full! I also get sicky easily so it's a fine line.

Mousecat88 my diet is very similar, I'm 6.5 months out. The first couple of mouthfuls I eat each meal cause discomfort, and I can't eat more than about a quarter to a third of a cup. I try and eat 5-6 times a day plus a cup of low fat milk with my coffees. I get nausea quite easily and lots of foods just won't 'go in', like rice, Pasta, most meat (chicken is ok). My surgeon mentioned dilating my sleeve but heck no!! I've started adding in 3-4 small Water crackers with some cheese, and oats with blueberries. I've increased my carbs as I train heavily most days, sometimes twice a day (weight lifting and trail running) so am burning a lot of what I eat and I struggle to get Protein in. I've started eating haloumi cheese (good protein) with a cooked Tomato on the side, and nuts and seeds. I can't tolerate Protein Powder or drinks at all. Is a lot of trial and error but is totally worth it, I'm so pleased with my weight loss 😊😊

      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
