Carbs after gastric bypass



Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how many carbs we should be shooting for after gastric bypass? I’m 10 months out, down about 96 pounds from highest weight

programs are all over the place with this. Some want their patients on ultra-low-carb diets (like under 40 or so), some want them on semi-low carb diets (e.g., 80 or fewer), and some don't care about carbs at all. So...you're likely to get answers all across the board. My program didn't mention counting carbs, but after fitting all of my Protein in, it was pretty rare that I got over 80 or so until I was over a year out.

It varies big time. I never counted carbs or calories. I only made sure to reach the Protein goal. Worked fine for me and still does.

I was told to try and not go over 36 carbs per meal. If it has more that 36 carbs a serving im not suppose to eat it.

What's the rationale behind that? Possible dumping?

I was told to avoid carbs while in the weightloss window. The weightloss window is 12-18 months post op. I do have carbs though mainly from low carb Condiments and shakes
