Nutritionist put me on a 1000 calories/ 60 - 90 protein/ 60 carbs per day and it is so hard. I am starving! How did you get through this?

Try more liquids

Hot tea+ sugar substitute ~0 calories

Water and low/sugar free flavor enhancer ~ 10 calories max

You can bulk up and divide down your Protein Shakes with ice and additional sugar free flavoring... smoothie

8 oz of water, cup of ice ice, 1/4th or ~3 oz vanilla Protein Shake, berry flavor Crystal light. Blend. Berry Vanilla smoothie roughly 40-60 calories

You can try it with sugarfree ice tea/drinks as well

Snapple diet ice tea (any flavor) & ice. blend. Snapple coolata. Dragonfruit or Coconut bai & ice blend. Starbucks fakeouts or faux pina coladas ~15 calories.

Good Luck💙

It's good practice for how you'll be eating post-op. You can do it!

Thank you for all your encouragement. I have been trying to fill up with chicken breast, since she is comfortable with me having that

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
