I'm 4 months post op bypass. Does anyone know where our macros should be? I'm wanting to log food in my fitbit app. Also what is a healthy calorie intake? I'm not looking for peoples opinions just if you've spoken to and gotten this info from your Dr or nutritionist or if you yourself have a background in nutrition. Thank you. I WILL be double checking with my own team but won't be able to until Wednesday and just wanted some info to get me through the weekend. Thank you!

I've logged everything into myfitnesspal since day 1 post-op surgery (actually I was doing it was for months pre-op too). My nutritionist told me 600-800 calories with 60 g of Protein daily

My dietitian said they won't give any macro advice until 12 months out, and just be concerned with meeting Protein goals. BUT, I did weasel out information from her because I told her my trainer wanted that information. This was at about 5 months out. She said since I was working out seriously hardcore, I should be getting 1000 calories a day, 90g of protein, and 100g of carbs. That is usually the standard at 12 months, she said, but because of my workouts I should get that now. BUT, in reality, at 8.5 months out I eat 600-700 calories, 100g of protein, and well under 50g of carbs per day and I am doing just fine. NO WAY could I shove in 1000 calories a day.

I was told by my NUT at least 800 calories per day.

I *sorta* remember the literature that was provided to me pre-op said that months 2-6 post op, I was to aim for 800-1200 calories with at least 60g Protein. In reality, at my 4 month mark, MFP tells me I was averaging 500 cals and 50g protein (**this is actually surprising to me as I actually thought I was averaging closer to 65 until I checked just now!**). My nutritionist was aware and was not overly concerned at the time.

I'm almost 9 months now and MFP tells me I average about 1500 cals & 75g protein a day. But, I am also no longer trying to lose weight, and I exercise way more now. The increase in calories is more due to higher calorie foods choices (i.e, fat) rather than volume as my stomach still can't take in too much at time yet.

Oh, and I'm pretty short (5'2") so that factors in to my stats as well.

Try using this calculator if you are into ultra-low-carb eating (just make sure to put the minimum grams of protein you want to achieve). But if you are carb-friendly, it may not be for you:

      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
