Well, I'm almost 11 months out and eat probably more than the average person since I had a different surgery and my body requires more 'fuel'. I saw my nutritionist on Monday and she said I'm doing great on the food front so... I guess, I'm doing good despite the fact I do feel like I eat too much.

What I ate today:

Lower sugar Maple and Brown Sugar oatmeal

banana

Light Greek Yogurt (strawberry)

Unsweetened Applesauce

No Sugar Added Mandarin Orange fruit cup

2/3 Cup of Pork Roast (with two baby potatoes, onions, zucchini, and carrots)

1 Protein Bar

2/3 Cup chicken Stir Fry using sugar free G.Hughes teriyaki sauce over cauliflower rice with veggies

2 cheese Sticks

1 30g Protein Shake

2 Powerade Zero's

It looks like a lot, but my nutritionist said I was doing good and my weight loss has been steady (I mean I only lost 2 pounds this month, but I lost 7 last month I've only been losing 5 pounds on average the last few months) so...

First: I want to say that I LOOOOVE looking at my old food logs, so thank you for giving me an actual excuse to do so, LOL.

Secondly: the mandatory disclaimer: we are all really different and how I ate may not be doable nor desirable for others. Always check with a medical professional for nutritional advice and make informed decisions.

Anyhoo, I looked up what I was eating at the 1 month mark and it was quite empty, so I fast forwarded a couple weeks to when I started eating more "food", so to speak. Here are screenshots of 6 consecutive food dairy logs at the 1.5 month mark. I tended (and sort of still do) to eat the same thing for days, which was/is fine for me.

Note that the last screenshot of 150-ish calories was a one-off for this period, I think I may have run out of Protein Powder or something.

As you can see i only once hit my 60-70g Protein goal during this 6 day period (though i think i was surpassing my Water goals by alot). This improved in the later months.

At one month I was eating things like over easy egg yolks. Mainly fluidish stuff like that, Protein Shakes (orange flavor, and choc w that PB2 powder in it), strained tortilla Soups etc.

It's MyFitnessPal. The screenshots I used above are from the desktop version...but I normally use the phone/mobile version 98% of the time.

I'm just over a year out. I am not a big fan of most meats, so a piece of chicken or turkey and a veggie is just not something I enjoy, so I tend to do a lot of stews or mixes. I generally cook 2 a week then alternate lunch and dinner (I'm single and cooking for one). So my meal plan may look like:

Breakfast: Protein coffee: coffee with Protein Powder, collagen powder, Fiber, a little half and half and sugar free Torani

Lunch: Ground turkey taco (no tortilla) - ground turkey, Beans, onion and taco seasoning. I may add a little greek yogurt and cheese or I may not

Dinner: Chicken "pot pie" - Chicken breast and veggies in broth with a little fairlife milk, thyme and dijon cooked into a creamy consistency. No crust.

I only recently started snacking, and that may be 2 tbs of popcorn with a 1/2 T of butter and some low calorie flavoring added.
