About 1/8 of a cup of ground beef or scrambled egg. About 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt. I'm 3 months out, and have complications.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I really hope you feel better soon.

What kind of complications do you have?- if you're comfortable talking about them.

I don't want to alarm any newbies, so that's why I didnt specify, but at 3 weeks out I developed a severe stricture between my intestines and pouch which prevented me from transitioning to soft foods. I also have marginal ulcers. I am having my 5th endoscopy with dilation on Friday. I'm hoping two more rounds will do the trick.

That's about right. I'm 4 1/2 months out and can still only eat 2-3 of solid Protein foods. Greek yoghurt with Protein Powder mixed in is my go-to slider. I can handle the meat if it is in Soup, so I do that regularly as well. I mix protein powder into the soup, also. Calf liver is the easiest actual meat for me - it is soft and goes down easily, as well as providing a lot of Iron. I buy it in very thin, 4 oz frozen slices from Spouts. I cut it in half so I have a 2 oz piece. I let it drain on paper towels after thawing. Then coat it very thinly with seasoned gluten free flour. Then into a hot skillet with some olive oil and onions.

I'm 11 months out and can eat up to a cup of certain foods, especially fruits and veggies. But like yesterday for lunch I had 1/3 cup of tuna salad on a single slice of sprouted grain bread and couldn't finish it. I can only eat about 2 ounces of meat like grilled chicken or steak.

Definitely not all foods are equal, I'm more like Briswife although of longer duration. Usually 2-3 oz with occasional up to a 1/3. cup. I heat up 1/2 cup, eat what I can and pitch the rest. Try to make it contain a Protein so7rch tempered with soft veggie. Several Protein Shakes enhanced with Miralax, and sip those danged fluids, take my full slate of vitam8nscand minerals. Since my Baratric people no longer contact me spontaneouslyn I must be on Autopilot. If they don't like the point I am at in August, it will be their fault, I feel the last time I reached out I was rebuffed in a nasty manner so Flup those 2 Nurse- practionerspractioners, there were people who did have my interests at ❤ but not Frick and Frack, the nasty little demons. I occasionally,forgive but I will never forget, it still stings when I think of it!

Hi Everyone,
I had surgery on 1/3/20, and I am now 6 weeks post op. I started solid food this week. I can easily eat 4 oz. So my question is should I have 4 oz of Protein (fish) or 2 oz of protein and 2 oz of veggies?

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
