From your screenshot it says you consumed 300+ calories for breakfast...

What was your total calories for the entire day? (I'm unsure if the 668 shown for calories is total consumed? Or total remaining?)

668 was my total cal. For the day

that's fine - it was just a little confusing. You put your question as a response to someone else's post rather than started a new thread for it. I know you're new and it's fine - you're not the first and certainly not the last, so no worries!

I eat the Protein foods first

ie. The chicken, the tuna, the eggs the Peanut Butter spoonful , the cheese etc

I'm going to go out on a limb here. I don't think you should be eating grilled chicken, Peanut Butter, tuna and egg salad with mayo added, etc.. 20 days after surgery. you really need to consume 2 or 3 protien shakes per day to print your system into balance.

I am on Soft diet right now I wasn’t able to get any kind of Protein Shake no matter how I tried premade mixes unflavored flavorless flavored water or anything I would throw it all up I talk to my nutritionist she said I could eat eggs Peanut Butter chicken tuna as long as my stomach could handle it the first stage after my surgery was liquids I did that for a week then then full liquids I did that for a Couple of days and still wasn’t getting enough Protein so my nutritionist Said I can go to soft diet and eat my protein that way Of course I did the purée stage in between as well February 3 I go on to Regular diet I can eat whatever I want then

I just did what my nutritionist said

This one is too strange. Just drink some protien shakes and move on. The idea that you can eat grilled chicken, Peanut Butter and tuna salad, but not a protien shake is above my pay grade. Good luck with your journey.

Yes that’s easy for you to say if I could get down the Proteins shakes and not throw them up. do you think I’d be here asking questions If I could , I just explained what my nutritionist told me to do And I’m going to move on by

The reason you are virtually required to drink protien shakes is because your new digestive system is still in the healing stage and not yet fully functioning. There is no way you are absorbing much protien from a piece of chicken at this stage. You might as we be eating cardboard from a nutritional sense.

The Protien shakes/supplements are not a "treat" they are a virtual necessity to get your body into a digestive rhythm.

Best of luck moving forward and hopefully your nutritionist can help you out. I will end with your original quote on one of these threads where I think you were questioning if your doctor may have actually done your surgery wrong. This kind of strangeness, coupled with the protien shake issue is just too strange for normal discourse.

Best of luck.

Sometimes life is hard, and you have to push through things, even if it is a struggle. You will be much better off in the end if you maintain good nutrition during the next several months.

Maybe it's a lactose issue then you'll need either pure isolate or pea or soy protein..

Personally i think there's something wrong if a person can't drink shakes they are very important for a number of reasons...

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

      3. biginjapan

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
