Fell off track 8 months post opp.



Recommended Posts

I have been off track for the past 2 months. I've kept my weight between 208 and 203 lbs. I've been eating breads ans grains. I've been grazing alot and its hard to get back on track. I've been thinking just to go on a liquid diet to see if it will help. Any tips and ideas would be appreciated.

I (who am only six months out) would say no to the liquid diet. I think you need to go back to focusing on Protein and Water.

I agree with not going back to a liquid diet. Just go back to the way you're supposed to be eating. Protein first, then non-starchy veggies, and then an occasional small serving of fruit or whole-grain carb if you have room and/or really want them. Track your food. Make sure you get all your fluids in. You haven't gained anything yet, so just pick up where you left off.

if you must snack, keep things like sugar free Jello and sugar free popsicles around. I also mix ranch dressing mix in plain Greek yogurt and use it as a dip for raw veggies, which I keep cut up and in the fridge. I also usually have grapes around most of time.

it's tough to rein yourself in, but you can do it!

I’m about 6 months out and having the same issues. My doctor approved of me having two Protein Drinks a day. I’m having one meal at night which typically includes fish. I stopped buying any crackers and sugar free pudding which I was eating with a crumbled graham cracker and whipped cream every night. I’m starting a new snack tonight with a high Fiber, high Protein grain called farro. It’s a porridge made with almond milk. I think it’s hard to not return to our favorite foods but we have to put a little creativity and have a spirit of curiosity so we can find things that don’t have the empty calories. We have to make what we eat in terms of nutritional value matter because we are losing nutrients due to the procedure itself.

Agree with going back to the basics. Protein first then vegetables. Get rid of the bread & a lot of the grains during the weight loss stage (you can slowly add whole or multi grains once you’re in maintenance). Watch your portion sizes.

Reduce your snacking to once a day - cheese, high protein yoghurt, chunks of cucumber, small serves of fruit.

Remember why you decided to have your surgery. You can get back on track.

I'm having similar issues. I had a RNY 6/20. I lost weight fast (260-160) then have been stalled for about 2 months. I went back to liquids and one salad a night but still haven't lost anymore. My goal is 140. I'm begining to get discouraged and think I won't ever see it. I always get in my Water and Protein so I'm not sure what to do.
