After having a double surgery due to them not doing a leak test. I never went back for follow ups. How do I get back on track as far as my food/caloric intake. Does anyone have any suggestions how I get back on track and help with my food. Thanks

Follow the bariataric plate diet. 1/2 of your plate should be Protein. 1/4 veggies. 1/4 grains. Eat protein first. If full, stop. Don't eat more than 1/2 cup at a time. Aim for 600-800 calories. Avoid sugars and starches. Drink your 64 oz of Water each day.

First I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with your surgery. Can you provide a little more detailed on the back end of your story.

How long has it been since you've had your surgery. What type of surgery, how much have you gain back etc.

Most people who have gained weight do a pouch reset, by going back to the basic post op diet.

Honestly? My suggestion would be to get yourself back to your surgeon and follow up visits. If not that surgeon, then find a new team.

Recent research shows that those patients with the best follow up care/compliance have the best long term success with the least regain and complications.

This is too complex of a journey to "wing it" on your own.

Your leak most likely had very little to do with your surgeon and had more to do with your body and health. For whatever reason, you did not seal in an area. Most of us are so metabolically sick going into surgery that we are at greater risk of complication than a so called "healthy normal weight" patient.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
