@BayouGirlMrsS this sounds like a well balanced plan! Thanks for sharing. I have an appointment with my nutritionist in May and I am going to discuss coming up with a plan that works for ME!

Researching online, it seems like a lot of people implement their own plans because I see a variety of Keto, IF, counting macros.

I haven’t tried the yogurt you mentioned but I will. I either buy Dannon Light and Fit or Chobani.

That's basically the only way you're going to stick to this long term: find out what works for you.

I also go not care for eggs or bananas. I also do not like artificial sweeteners. So I struggled hard my first 10 weeks after surgery. I was able to get my Protein with FairLife Milk and CorePower Protein Drinks. I am now 6 months post op. I can not eat bacon or sausage. It makes me rather nauseous. I would suggest trying other things that provide protein with less fat and sodium. But who am I to say.
I do not want to return to my bad eating habits. I struggle with being able to exercise due to me being handicapped.
We all have our own struggles and vices.

I recommend searching your soul. Find out what and who you are in your self. It is not an easy process, but you find out what you have been lying to yourself about for years, in my case decades. After all if you have told yourself this crap, what have you told others. Be true to yourself , or your life will be false to you.

If you don’t like a lot of “breakfast” foods, or they don’t fit in your plan, no need to eat them for Breakfast. Maybe a quesadilla with fat free cheese and a small, low carb wrap? I really like lox and if you skip the full bagel with it, it’s high Protein, low calorie.

3. Have you cheated and still lost?

I wouldnt say that I have cheated per se since im not super strict with food anymore after reaching my biggest milestone, but yeah, Ive still lost weight after having a "large" day of food. I think it's my bodies way of saying that I "need" more calories. Still, when I look back over my food journals, my "large" days arent so large but more less structured (since im at home right now) than they should be.

You should avoid all high fat foods...try turkey products...higher in Protein and less fat. Are you still seeing your dietician? You should because you shouldn’t be eating bacon at 6 weeks post op.

Are you a dietician? Not sure why you are telling people what they should or should not eat when a lot of bariatric patients are successful with Keto, which is high fat. I wouldn't do it, but I wouldn't tell people not to either.

Not telling someone what to do, just suggesting based off of what I was told by the two dieticians I meet with monthly. I will refrain from further posts since you are overly critical in your digestion of suggestions.
