How many calories are you supposed to eat 2 months post-op?



Recommended Posts

I'm worried I'm eating too much. I'm eating around 800-900 calories

I ate 600-800 for the first few months, but some programs recommend a little more than that. I'd ask your surgeon or dietitian what they recommend.

Here is a good calculator:. https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/weight-loss/in-depth/calorie-calculator/itt-20402304

i have calculated my requirement and then cut that in half to give me my basic daily need. For me that's about 900 er day.

My dietician told me 1000 ca/day. I told her I was havinging difficulty getting in 600-800 and she told me I should be getting at least 1000 but people normally do not meet that goal until they are about 6mths out.

I was only getting about 400 calls per day for about the first 6 weeks. I track my macros in mfp and just started trying hard to increase the calories with healthy options and it has been working well. I get in about 600-700 calories now and am continuing to lose weight weekly.

I was up to 500 cal/day at 2 months.

I was at 450-500 until month 3 then up to 500-600 until month 6 when I was below goal weight and purposely increased to 1000 to stop the weight loss. The loss slowed a little until I hit 1500-1800 to hit maintenance.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
