I was wondering how many calories People averaged after VSG (sleeve). The first month after surgery? And moving forward. Or is there a guide? Or something. I started logging my food ( 2 days ago out of curiosity) and I’m barely getting 500 and I have to really push myself? Most of my calories come from my Protein Drink. (Which I love it’s my favorite of all the drinks I have tried) ensure MAX Protein stats are 150 calories- 30 g protein- 1.5 g fat- 1 g Sugar.
Any recommendations would help or guides or just personal experiences. I feel full and I can’t eat any more than I am currently eating. Is it normal.
Thank in advance.

600 is a good number for a couple of months. Crush off as much weight as you can in the first couple of months. You have a whole (now extended) lifetime to eat reasonable meals.

I wasn't given calorie goals, rather I have daily Protein goals. During two week liquid phase I need to get minimum of 45 grams of protein daily. I have been averaging about 60 to 75 daily with about 500-600 calories per day. I get to start on phase two on this Thursday, yeah! Phase two for me is pureed food for two weeks. For this phase I need to get a minimum of 60 grams of protein per day. Phase three is soft foods for two weeks, again getting minimum of 60 grams of protein each day. Phase four is to integrate regular foods back into my diet getting 60-80 grams of protein per day. Eating three meals a day with 1 to 2 Snacks. This is all based off the information given to me by my dietitian. So long story short I am concentrating on protein not calories.

      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.
