Hi All

Can anyone give me a rough guideline of how many calories daily they took in the early stages post gastric by pass and how many is enough to maintain continued weight loss

Thanks

Please, please ask your program/nutritionist/doctor's office. There's a weekly Who Eats Less contest here, and really, just go with what your program says you should do.

It depends on so many different factors - what's perfect for me might be way off for you. We all have different sizes, activity levels, dieting history, metabolisms, etc. I'd ask your bariatric team for some guidance and even with that, it may take some trial and error. It's counter-intuitive but sometimes people have to eat MORE to start losing again after a stall.

No worries, it can take a while to start seeing the loss because you're still swollen and retaining Water inside. It's too soon for the number on the scale to mean a whole lot. Stick with it, the pounds will start coming off!
