Hi there! I’m a little over 2 months post-op (RNY) and figuring out what to eat and how much to eat is still a learning process. I had done nutrisystem in the past before my surgery, but never loved it because I felt the portions were too small and it was expensive having to buy that stuff and everything else to supplement it from the store.

But now, I’m wondering if those portions might be perfect, and I wouldn’t have to spend much money at all at the store to supplement the packaged food. I know I’d need to make sure I’m still getting enough Protein in, but I’m curious... anyone further post-op than me tried to follow the nutrisystem program?

I'm betting that while the portion size may be smaller, I don't recall them being as small as a 2 month post-op would eat.

More to point, though, is the content. The Protein to other ratio that I recall would not be appropriate for my plan.

Unless you intend to eat NutriSystem forever, best to learn to do it yourself, now.

Good luck,

Tek

My concern would be getting in enough Protein with nutrisystem.

Is the problem meal planning or cooking? If it's cooking, just grab pre-made stuff at the grocery store, like rotisserie chicken, steamed shrimp, chicken salad from the deli, etc. Eggwhite omelettes are easy to make, and there's always my fave snack, greek yogurt! For the cost of nutrisystem, you could even order takeout a couple times per week and make 3-4 meals out of each takeout meal. You could also get Lean Cuisines and just pick out the protein and veggies. I can get 2 meals out of 1 lean cuisine. Just a few ideas!

if you got a plan from your clinic, I would follow that for now. Things like Nutrisystem and Weight Watchers might be fine a year or more out, but for now I'd stick to my clinic's plan (if you got one...)
