Quantity of food at 6 months



Recommended Posts

How much (amount wise, not calories) are you able to eat at 6 months? I’m able to eat about a cups worth of soup/softer foods at a time. I can eat about 2-4 oz of stuff like meats and veggies at a time. Is this too much? I’m afraid I’m eating too much and will stretch my sleeve.

That sounds about what I was able to eat at that time. Maybe more like 3/4 cup but I’d eat over about 30 minutes depending on what I was eating. But I was starting maintenance at about 6 months. I wasn’t a strict calorie counter but I’d do random checks & especially if I added something new to my diet. You may find random checks of the calories you’re eating & of the nutrients helpful.

Remember, stick to your plan. Listen to your body. Eat slowly so the message you’ve had enough reaches your brain. (Not that you’re full but that you don’t need to eat any more.) I still ask myself if I really need that next spoonful. Not that I just want it or are eating out of habit.

If you’re still worried speak with your dietician.

Good luck on your journey.

That's about what I am eating now.

You seem to be doing well, keep doing it.

Good luck,Tek
