15 months post sleeve



Recommended Posts

I’m freaking out a little. Over a year post sleeve and For Breakfast I eat 150g quark (low fat Greek yogurt kind of) with 70g strawberries and 30g Protein granola. I’ve watched way too many videos on YouTube that state after one year your plate should only be a total of 170grams. It’s a full children’s bowl. Is that normal? 😞 dinner I eat really healthy but it weight up to 250-300grams total of protein and veggies. I have not gained any weight but it’s scary to see that I’m able to eat almost a full small plate of food

I would think it was more about the volume rather than weight. If you are concerned speak to your dietician or surgeon.

Given that your profile shows you are in a good place so you must be doing right regardless of the weight of the food you are eating.

Thank you. I am tracking my calories. I see now that it’s normal one year post op to eat between 900-1200 calories where most apps say to maintain I’ll need 1400-1600. I think I’ll need to seek some medical advice but I thought I’d come on here first. Glad I’ve found this forum. Thanks again

that sounds pretty normal. I went more by calories -- I was eating 1000-1200 a day when I got to be about a year out. Since I hit maintenance (at 20 months out), I've been in the 1500-1700 range.

a small plateful of food when you're over a year out is pretty normal. That's about what I eat now. No one would be able to tell I've had weight loss surgery at this point. I eat about as much as my never-been-obese women friends do who are watching their weight.

if you aren't gaining weight, then I wouldn't worry about it.

Just because something's on YouTube doesn't mean it's true. Talk to your surgery team/nutritionist.

I agree it’s not always the size of the plate or the total weight of your meal. Calories & nutritional value are more important. Measure/weigh your food separately so you can accurately track what you’re consuming. Soft liquidy foods like yoghurt will go through your tummy more quickly then a solid Protein like meat. I can easily eat a full serve of rolled oats made with a cup of milk & about 15-20 blueberries for Breakfast & I often eat about 1/2 cup of diced red paw paw (papaya) mixed in a tub of yoghurt (160g).

If you’re consuming only 900-1200 calories, you can’t be eating to excess with portions that are too large.

You need to work out the calories you need to maintain your weight & not lose or gain. Take the caloric ranges as a guide only. We’re all different & factors like age, activities levels, genetics, etc, all affect the actual calories your body needs to function versus what someone else needs.

Have a chat with your dietician.

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
