Answers are gonna be all over the place, very dependent on the individual. My meal plan recommends over 100 carbs per day as I get further in my plan and I never see myself getting to that. At least not daily.

I EAT NONE!

Ok that is not true cuz some foods just have carbs in them, But to eat at that point is insane stay so far away from high carb food its silly!

Carbs are what got me into the fatty forum and nearly killed me, I was a addict to carbs with french fries, baked potatoes, rice, batters, etc! My view is stay clear of carbs and sugar till you die! You will have no choice but to get some carbs and sugar - But run forest run -

The advice of the NUT at my program is super simple. More Protein than carbs. They want me at about 80g protein per day right now, so less than that in carbs. I’m 3 months out and honestly have to have most of my intake be protein if I want to get in 80g because of my restriction, so most days I’m at 30g or less of carbs. Most of that is green veggies, with a few berries here and there and the occasional bite of potatoes or rice.

How many carbs do you guys eat once you are past the 6 week mark after surgery.

Follow your dietitians plan. My plan is five years old. Protein 60 to100g. Carbs 56g plant based.

My NUT instructed me to comprise each of my meals to have 25% of carbs/starches

With that said, I told her I wasn't going to do that and instead aimed for less than 25g of NET carbs a day. She was not overly concerned with my chosen course of action.

AVOID THEM LIKE THE BLACK DEATH

go with whatever your clinic recommends. Some plans are moderately low-carb (like under 80 -- or under 100), some are ultra-low carb. And even given that, some people are more carb sensitive than others. My program was definitely not ultra-low-carb, but they really never addressed carbs at all. Still, during the losing phase, I rarely ate over 80 g of them a day (I eat more than that now that I'm in maintenance).

oh - and they should be the healthy kinds of carbs (vegetables, fruit, whole grains) - not processed stuff

I haven’t counted carbs but fare better with as little carbs or sugar as is possible. For me it’s an addiction so I try to avoid what I easily get addicted. Feel it out and see how your body responds. My nutritionist says complex carbs come with maintenance. Even then I don’t think I will.

My NUT didn't give me a carb total yet at this point. I was told 60-70 grams of Protein at 1/4 - 1/2 per meal. I could do 1/4 - 1/3 protein then 1-2 tbs of cooked non fibrous veggies. I would say most of the carbs I get are from the tiny bit of veggies or the natural carbs in milk. With that said I'm going back to Almond milk and adding in greek yogurt to my shakes to lower those carbs. My personal goal is to keep my carbs low and have them come from veggies. To many carbs is what got me here to begin with.

That all being said everyone is very different and I say go with what works for you and your weight loss goals.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
