having trouble breaking 400 calories



Recommended Posts

I was told to drink 4 Protein Shakes per day for my liquid diet. I also had sugar free or fat free versions of pudding, Jello, popsicles, Soup broth, gatorade, yogurt, and milk. While the total calories were not a lot, I got plenty of Protein and nutrition. I never felt weak. With the liquid diet I lost 13 lbs in 2 weeks and 15 lbs. more by 2 weeks after surgery.

Were you hungry? Or did that meal plan keep ur new baby stomach full

I was told that I should aim for 64 ounces liquid and 60 grams Protein for the first two weeks. My surgeon and program was very clear in saying that most days we may not be able to make that but we should try. I'm in week 2 and still in a liquid stage. I think I broke 400 calories once and that was because I ate 1/4 cup of cream of chicken Soup over the course of the day. Once I realized I shouldn't rely on that calorically I've hovered under 400 thanks to Protein Shakes. In the last 11 days since my LGS I've lost 15 lbs. I'm actually worried I'm losing weight too fast and can't wait to get to the pureed part of the diet.

Good luck! And always call your doctor/dietician/program if you have concerns 🥰

Never worry about losing too much it will slow down before you know it and you will wish it was quick again

No, I wasn't hungry at all. I had my sleeve done 7 years ago. Just did the revision to modified DS this year. The liquid diet reset my stomach and I was surprised to feel full with such small portions.
