Hi Y'all, I had sleeve surgery 7 months ago on the 17th. I've been stuck for about 2 months now at 226lbs from 318lbs. I can't seem to find where I should be macro wise to get me out of this stall. Its been very emotionally draining as I have no restrictions in regards to what I can eat just portion and well I'm an emotional eater. I'm truly just at a loss and I'm dying to get to wonderland. I do an hour of CrossFit 3 times a week and my CrossFit trainer keeps telling me I'm not eating enough. I don't think she fully understands and I'm not getting much from my doctor. I get anywhere from 1,000-1,300 on non gym days and 1,300-1,500 calories on gym days, 30-90 carbs and 70 -130 in Protein. The only thing as of lately I've noticed is I'm very hungry so I eat about every hour or so and getting Water in has been hard but I try to hit 70 oz. at min. I've done measures and even that has only been a small difference. Thanks for any help! :)

Hey! I know you posted this a while ago, but maybe don’t do crossfit 3x a week. Is it all HIIT?? Or do you do a mix of strength training/LISS/HIIT? Because that can make a difference. We cannot consume enough calories to do high intensity often. I do maybe 2 workouts a week that are more heavy handed and i don’t allow myself to burn more than 350 calories. At this rate, you know that building muscle burns quite a bit of calories resting. That’s why it’s more important to build muscle than to really sweat it out all the time. I’ve been a slow and steady loser since I’ve incorporated a mixture of crossfit and strength training. My sister kicked my ass the last two workouts I’ve had with her at her gym and it takes me literally all week to recover. Probably because i don’t get in enough Protein or Water. It sucks lol.

maybe switch up what your exercise routine is. I don’t think your diet is the problem here. Not really. And get you a trainer who better understands your nutritional needs. My sister plans special workouts just for me because she knows i cannot burn as many calories as a person who attends their gym. Just keep at it. You will get there eventually. I’m 235 and I’m so ready to see onderland too.

Since it’s been like 2.5-3 weeks since you posted, what have you been doing? Have you found a solution? Lost any weight?

How tall are you?, or what is your BMI? If your BMI is low-ish, your cals may be at maintenance level for you....?
