If you are taking all your Protein as recommended, you should be seeing an increase in energy. That said, you are probably like me on an 800 calorie diet so it is not like there is a whole lot of energy to be had in there. Keep taking your protein and Vitamins and you will start to feel better.

Bananas are always listed as an energy food due to their complex carbs, B Vitamins and potassium. Sweet potatoes too. They are a complex carb and since our body digests it so slowly, you'll get a "steady supply of energy". Hope this helps.

I also have a short supply of energy, however I have been diagnosed with mild anemia for many years. It has worsened in the last 5 or 6 years, a few years after RNY bypass. I was in my late 60's when I had the surgery. My diabetes kept getting worse and my weight was a major problem so that was my main intent to help the diabetes. It worked! For a while my energy was way up but as I have turned in my 80's, my anemia, related to kidney function, is worse and I'm really tired most of the time. Diet is always a concern and I cannot eat much at all. I admit that I have a bad habit of skipping my meds. Fortunately my hematologist referred me to a kidney specialist and I think I have the best advice that I have ever had. Frequent blood tests are a good thing and in my earlier years was to busy to take care of myself. I'm coming up to 83 and still a work in progress.

Make sure you are getting enough Iron and enough B Vitamins. I had so much brain fog and low energy until I started on iron supplements and B vitamins (both a B complex and a separate B12 supplement). Now I'm fine, take zero or one nap a day, go running, etc. I am just shy of a month out.

      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?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
