How long do we need to ingest 60 oz. fluid?



Recommended Posts

I'm a little fuzzy on how long we need to ingest 60 oz of water/fluid daily post surgery. Can someone enlighten me please?

its a life sentence, However it may not be 60 You can do a hydration test and back it down a little. For example I only drink 48-50 oz now a day and I am fine and hydrated. But this is a long way out Many months.

Also if you hate Water as much as I do, eat a Soup for lunch every day it has water, Suck on a popsickle lots of water in that, offsets the drinking it a little

yes - for life. Although even non-WLS people should be doing that, too. A lot of health people recommend eight cups of Fluid a day - so that's 64 oz.

Keep in mind that fluids in (some) food also counts as Fluid so it doesn't mean 64oz of clear Water

FOREVER... for me, I start retaining Water and will gain a few pounds if I don't get in at least 65oz a day but I function best drinking more than 85oz and will lose that water weight taking in 100oz. But I count my Protein Drink, coffee, tea and water. If I have a glass of wine, I count that too but it is a small price to pay for feeling so good.

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
