Maxing out my 700 calories for the day and still hungry



Recommended Posts

So I’m about a few days short of 3 months and I don’t know if it normal but I have been getting hungry more often. I still can’t take more then 3-4 ounce max of food and I never drink an hour before eating and an hour after idk the 30 mins after wasn’t working because I drank and felt like I over did it and would throw up so I stick to an hour after. But I’m hungry I eat my veggies and Proteins and I have healthy Snacks about twice in between and it still isn’t working. Maybe it’s my sleeping because I wake up around 9-10am and go to bed around late-ish. My nutritionist said it was very normal but I’m scared I might be end up gaining if she advances me to more then 700 calories. I need some advice maybe some foods to try. Help 😔

What are you eating/drinking?

Here's some caloric information on popular Protein sources

This is really help full! My day would consist of like an Medium egg and maybe some tomatoes scrabbled in it. Then lunch is like chicken and the freezer mix veggies a cup of that and dinner would be maybe another 2 ounces of chicken and carrots or tuna and two leafs of lettuce. My snacking is like healthy mix nuts an ounce of that and skinny pop a Serving of that. Or I will have a table spoon of Peanut Butter and a banana.

Nuts are super calorically dense, way less bang for your caloric buck at 3 months post op.

If you are ok with this, understand that your daily calories will likely be higher that what your NUT standardly recommends (for someone who is eating mostly Proteins and nothing else)

Good Luck ❤

That sounds normal to start getting hungry. Sounds like you've got a good handle on it. Stick with the program.

That's about right. I remember getting hungrier at the 3-4 month mark.

I made sure to do very lean, very dense, dry Protein. 2-3oz per meal. First.

Then I changed veggies to be cooked al dente from fresh. 1-2oz. Also very dry and dense. I did not add oils/butters etc. Dry. Eat this second.

Then I added 1oz avocado (for the good fats) and 1oz grape tomatoes (at that time it was more like 1/2oz and 1/2 oz). Eat this last. It's a slider.

From there if you are having hunger, then I'd add veggies as between meal mini meals if you need with a healthy fat (like raw veg + lower fat cottage cheese or yogurt + Ranch Dressing Mix).

Yep I'm 3.5 months out and finally starting to try new foods it is nice to have the variety but other days I'm too busy so shakes are still a part of my life :)

i find if I get any craving to eat or drink high Protein low carb.

if I decide to take In extra carbs one day it will make me hungrier than normal..

      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!

      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.
