Just concentrate on hitting your daily Water an Protein goals for now. Remember to sip your water. A good goal is 4 ounces per hour. Get up and get walking as well. If you are feeling overwhelmed just focus on these immediate goals and then you can work on the long term goals.

Hi Rob! I was over 50 when I had my op, and it worked a treat - over 120 lbs gone so far.

I wasn't given lots of detailed instructions about macros, so I didn't feel overwhelmed. I was told to favour Water and Protein, but otherwise to eat a healthy diet in very small portions and to take dietary supplements. I was told to gradually build up my exercise levels. These broad principles were easy to follow and worked for me! 🙂
