What was your protein/day goal after surgery?



Recommended Posts

Once you start eating some actual food it will be easier. Are you allowed Soup now and pudding. Those two things are good to sneak in some unflavored Protein Powder to decrease the need for shakes.

Yes, allowed to have Soup, but the dr asked me to focus on the Protein Shakes for this week.

Bariatric Advantage and ProtiDiet sell Protein Soups, same as Protein Shakes.

Two months post-op, my goals are 90-120 grams of Protein, 80-120 grams of carbohydrates, and 45-55 grams of fat per day, for a total of 1085-1455 calories per day. I tend to miss on the fat but otherwise have no issues meeting those targets.

I should mention that these are high because I am physically active multiple hours a day.

Thanks for all the responses.

I have 2 more daysof just shakes..I'll follow the dr's instructions.. It seemed at first glance, that 120 g on week 2 was a bit higher than what Ihad seen here in the forums.

@Sunnyway, @TheRealPennyD, thanks for the suggestions.Even though I am starting purees soon, I think I'll keep having 1-2 shakes/protein sources per day to ensure I meet the daily Protein goal..

@vikingbeast, thanks for the info. I asked my Dr, and he says that the high recommended daily protein was because the results of my body composition anaylsis showed that I had a higher than usual muscle mass, and he wanted to keep as much as possible of that for when I started working out.

Onward and forward! :)

I have the same "concern". I have had DXA scans done and my lean body mass fluctuates between 205 and 215 lbs... so that's what I based my goal weight on. 240 lbs. would be 10-15% body fat. We'll see if I can get there!

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
