So for my 5 weeks and up let’s share one or as many of your meals.

breakfast: I’m trying eggs with avocado and a bit of spinach

lunch: turkey and cheese wrap with a bit of hummus spread

my dinner I’m still on the fence about it if I have room but I’ll do 2/3 meatballs and a side of carrots or diced chicken and carrots.
Of course I’m between 3-4 ounces for my plan.

Now lunch and dinner I pick one or the other and my a plain eater Or sometimes in this phase I do really eat as much but when I can I these are my go too. What’s yours??

That's a LOT of food for your stage.

At 5 weeks you should be at 1/4 to 1/3 cup of food. That is 2-3ounces by VOLUME, not weight.

At the most that is 1-2oz of Protein by WEIGHT and if you have room, a BITE or 2 of veg well cooked.

3-5 small meals a day as recommended by my nutritionist

1-2 ounces egg medium is about 1 ounce shoprite brand avocado is about 1 ounce spinach when cooked I have about .5 maybe not at all if I am full with the others

Oscar Mayer’s chicken or turkey cold cut 1 slices is about an ounce on the dot and I have about two with the spread of hummus super minimal about about 0.2-0.3 close to 2.2 ounces their

anddddd if I am feeling dinner like I said 3 meat balls the amoura brand comes up to about 1.8-1.9 ounces with the carrots maybe about 3 ounces max

the other alternative to dinner is the can chicken by bumble bee or the off brand 5 ounce per can with Water without 4 ounces might do a teaspoon of mayo about .3 ounces totaling about for half that can 2.3 ounces of food and mayyyybeeee the carrots

I follow everything to the T have lost 35 pound in my first month and now at 5 my scales I make sure it is working and I don’t go over my body’s intake handle sorry if I wasn’t super specific in the beginning I like to just type it out and go now I have explained it in detail hope that helps the confusion

edit if I’m feeling snacky she said crackers are okay 2 ritz no salt they get soft no problems so far

I think she meant 2/3 as in two thirds of a meatball?

I do a premier shake every morning. I don't do Breakfast other than the weekends or for dinner lol.

For lunch I need to do better but I have some packaged "add Water and microwave" meals from bariatric pal. Sometimes I have leftovers from dinner. Doing a lot of diced pre-cooked chicken, burgers, etc. Stuff that's easy to heat and eat at work.

For dinner I have some great meatballs from trader joes, fish nuggets from trader joes, sometimes another shake if I worked out hard and want to hit 100 grams of Protein that day. Tonight is leftover spicy pork from my ramen on Sunday and I'll mix it with a serving of Unjury Chili. Should be really good!

I'm six weeks post opp sleeve (10/28). I was told 1/2 cup of food, if I can do it, per meal. I usually don't come close. I had 1 and a half eggs this morning. A light babybell cheese as a snack. about 1/3 cup of tender grilled chicken with a little bit of sauteed veggies. dinner will probably be more of the chicken, since I got it at the deli by my work - I can get several meals from one serving. Sometimes I have another snack. I get my 64 oz of Water in.

No as I said the brand amoura has these tiny meatballs not the huge Italian ones you must be thinking of which is 1.7-2 ounce for 2-3. Again not that huge of a meatball

No you read it right but again everyone’s meal plan and post op is different again not the huge Italian meatballs we serve on sundays it’s the tiny ones with the brand I said on top.

      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
