How much Fiber is too much? I’m switching to the Atkins 30g + 7g of fiber shakes to help save on the amount of Benefiber I use. One serving of Benefiber only gives 3g and the suggested amount per day is 3 servings (9g). I don’t wanna get stopped up. Thoughts?

MFP - pre sets it. My fiber is at 25grams.

Bariatistic is another option for a food log. Are you doing a log by hand or Not logging?

For the past year I’ve used the Atkins app to log food. Since I just started purée (13 days PO) I’m starting to log again. Wasn’t bothering the past couple weeks. 25g sounds good. I did a little reading after my initial post and that amount matches up with the info I found 👍🏼👍🏼

RDA is 15-25 grams a day. People early out from WLS probably don't get nearly that much because we have to focus so much on our Protein requirements (actually, most Americans in general probably don't get that much every day). So anyway, if you're in or under that range, theoretically you won't be overdoing it.

That's so funny that you mention this because on Friday I went out and bought some Atkins Plus Protein Shakes because they have 30 g of Protein (my GNC ones has 25 g) and 7 g of fiber (my GNC ones have 3 g of fiber) and wanted to see if the extra fiber was beneficial. I don't know the results yet as I've only tried one shake so far.

I had a Think Thin Protein Bar ( at least 12 grams of fiber) I was sick as a DOG.. the only thing I could think of was it had to have been the fiber.. I try to keep the fibers grams no more than 5 a meal till I know I can handle it because eventually I will need the fiber when I maintain ( fiber makes you feel fuller) .

Great minds think alike, girl!

      this one is a bit of a slog to get thru but it is important to see the differences they are trying to define.

      Dinner tonight was: a dessert plate (cuz it's small) topped w/ dark leafy greens, refried beans & stewed shredded chicken. Pretty good.

      This is great, but having difficulty changing where it says under my moniker & next to my profile picture, "Pre Op" to ---> "Post Op".  I'm new, but had my Gastric Bypass procedure 06 February 2018. Halp! lol  Also, how do I post Before & current "After/ Work In Progress" photos?  Do I post it/ them in this status box? Any assistance appreciated. Thanks a bunch in advance. Toodles!

      Day 2 of pureed food diet, 15 day post Sx. I'm eating lunch (leftover taco ground beef mixed with 2% cottage cheese) and wondering "Am I full? Am I full? How will I know I am full?" I've prepared about a 1/2 cup total and eaten about a half of that. Then I get the familiar pressure behind my sternum, like a burp is just sitting there wanting to come up. I hiccup a couple times and gas bubbles up from my belly. There's no feeling of fullness in my stomach, its all in my chest. I guess this is full for me? I am just learning what full feels like. For the new me, fullness isn't leaning back from the table with my hands on my belly wanting to unbutton my jeans. Fullness is a feeling low in my chest that the food has stopped going down. Air is trying to escape to make room. It's the feeling of really needing to burp. Still learning.

        I get a heavy feeling in my chest and can't burp, then the hiccups come and they are loud and obnoxious
