Hi, I am at a standstill with my weight-loss,

I want to know what quantity of food do you eat.

I don't want to rely on the sleeve to tell me when to quit.

I do that now and I want to make sure that isn't the cause of the plateau.

I stay under 1/2 cup per meal.

at one month out you will be in serious pain if you push it. Search this forum for the "week 3 stall" everyone has it

At one month out 1 was eating about 1 to 1.5 oz of Protein per meal, which is probably equivalent to 1/4 cup in volume (eaten over a course of an hour)...also, sometimes a meal would just consist of a Protein Shake which was about equivalent to 1.5 cups (drank over a course of 1/2 an hour).

Now, however, at 1 year and 3 months, I can eat up to 3-5 oz of protein (1/2 to 1 cup) plus salad (maybe 2 cups squished?) And can probably finish this amount in about 45 mins. There are days however that I feel meh about eating and I eat less.

But you are right about not letting your sleeve tell you when you to stop, as it will probably be too late by then. Pre-portioning your food is great way of control and be mindful of your intake!

I meant to ask as well. How many times a day do you eat?

If you are only eating 1/2 cup. Are you eating six times a day or three?

I read about it but my situation may be different as I had a revision. But that topic did give me some hope for the future.

About 5 times a day, but only twice a day at 1/2 cup, the other times are small "snacks" at maybe 1/4 cup

Dang! Is that by choice or pouch size sweetie? What kinds of food are you eating? What liquids calories are you having?

I was wondering the same thing. What does your team think about the amount you eat?

I agree with this - sounds like the dreaded three-week stall (usually happens during the third week, but not always - the first major stall can happen any time during the first 4-6 weeks or so of surgery). Just stick to your plan and the weight loss will start up again. My first stall lasted two weeks, but once my weight loss started up again, I dropped like 6-8 lbs within a couple of days.

I just met with the nutritionist and she didn't say anything was weird with that. I eat about 1,000 calories/day.

I'm a couple weeks behind you on my surgery date. I can handle about 1/4 cup of firmer foods, like egg whites. Closer to 1/3 of a cup of more liquid foods like yogurt or cottage cheese.

I am still having two Protein Shakes a day, then have a couple of small "meals" to round out the day. My target is around 600 calories per day, but my real focus is on 75+ grams of Protein and not stretching my pouch, so I eat and drink slowly and stop at the first sign of fullness (for me with my new pouch, it is the sensation that I need to burp, but it feels different for everyone).

You're actually a year and a couple of weeks. :) Congrats!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
