I had gastric sleeve surgery almost a year ago and I have only lost 30lbs!!! I have discussed this several times with my nutritionist and my doctor and they seem to think that putting me on a 980-1100 calorie diet is the answer. I have done this for 3 months and still NOTHING!!! My doctor tells me I am getting too much Protein and that I shouldn't worry about doing Meal Replacements. How can I get too much protein when I don't feel like I am getting hardly any at all??? I feel like I went through all of this for nothing and that there is something else going on, but no one will listen to me. Has anyone else out there encountered these issues?

how much Protein are you getting on average? And yes - at a year out, you shouldn't need meal replacements - you should be able to get enough protein from your food, unless there's some malabsorption issues going on. And the calorie range they gave you sounds reasonable for being this far out. Can you type out a couple of typical daily menus? It's sort of hard to assess unless we know what you're eating on a typical day. Thanks!

That calorie range sounds right. I don't know why it's not working. Are you tracking how much Protein you're getting? Are you drinking your 64 oz of Water each day? I don't know what to tell you. Hang in there.
