Daily Menus for Maintenance



Recommended Posts

A thread for Maintainers to share our daily menus!

(This thread is a spin-off from another thread I started that was open to all people at different stages. Meant to start this one specifically for Maintainers a while back, but am just now getting around to it ;) )

Same format applies: To help keep things in perspective for everyone, let's try to note our height & weight (or BMI), gender, weight-status & how far out we are post-op (unless this is already stated in your side profile :))

Post as little or as much info as you want. If you track macros, feel free to share your Protein, fat, & carb details...if all you feel like saying is you had a really yummy taco, that's cool too.

Hahaha. Do you want outliers or only those maintainers who fit a certain group of specifics? :D

Any maintainers, really...I think it would be helpful for those who are getting their feet wet in maintenance, yes?

(Also helpful for longer-term maintainers who are running out of ideas of what to eat, and for those who need to get back on track after some slippage, and so on, and so on....LOL)

(Plus I'm fascinated by your own menus and I wanna see!!!)

How much in term of cups of vegetables is everyone getting through your the day? I probably get a cup of spinach (cooked with an egg) and a half cup of steamed veggies and that’s it. I feel like I need to get more.

I probably (on average) get in about 1 cup of raw veggies, not including my salad greens a day.

It's hard to say how much salad greens I eat in terms of volume (they are so leafy! lol). But put it this way: the past couple weeks, I've eaten the equivalent of about 1.5 - 2 romaine hearts + 2-3 fistfuls of raw spinach (or spring mix) per day

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
