A whole chicken in a day seems to be a lot at 3 months out. You have to be mindful of the portion size. Even if you can eat that much doesn't mean that it's ok. I eat no more than 2-3 ozs of chicken in a meal as chicken sits on my chest for a while and I am 3 1/2 months out. Figuring out head hunger and real hunger is crucial.

Wishing many success on your journey.

Lol you had me worried for a moment. It depends on the size of the quesadilla.

It looks delicious. I agree with Mikeyy be careful with the carbs. Once in a while is ok but remember you want to maximize your weight loss in these critical months.

I'm not sure what you're allowed on your plan at this point, but after I was a couple months out, I could eat more than I was supposed to. That's when I had to be really careful to weigh and measure things to be sure I was only eating what I was supposed to be eating.

I could not have eaten that much at 3 to 4 months post op, I do remember making low carb high Protein enchiladas around that time to 6 months and could only eat half. I rarely eat bread or low carb tortillas still because its hard for me to get it in.

I could eat that much at 3 months, but the bigger question is "Should I?" or Should YOU? :D

What is your quantity you should be having at 3 months? Cuz at 3 months, I think my total volume range per meal was between 1/2-1cup--focusing on trying not to exceed 3/4cup.

At almost 18months, I still only have a maximum volume of 1cup allowed--even though I can easily exceed that at any meal...

Just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD. Watch those portions. Stay at 1/2 cup.

It is on a carb balance tortilla only 4 net carbs! I keep my carbs under 20 a day...Thanks for the advise everyone

Yeah, you have 2 groups of peeps who count carbs: those who net, and those who do not--but mostly they probably only saw the word "tortilla" and extrapolated that it was a standard carb one.

I know I was more so interested in a response about the amount of food rather than what it was, but I will be more careful and not overeat again just cuz I can! I knew it seemed like a lot...

Yep, to this day I measure and weigh everything but I'm an outlier. :) And AR. ;)

      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.
