Can you show me your food log?



Recommended Posts

Whatever stage you're at - pre-op, honeymoon, long term - if you track, I'd love to see some food logs. I'm early in the process and I'd like to see specifically what some others end up eating in a day.

Meal 1 (0530) (51 cal 6C 2F 2.3P)

Espresso with 5 g brown sugar and 2 oz steamed milk

Meal 2 (0745) (164 cal 4C 10.6F 13.3P)

1 slice chard and spinach crustless quiche

Meal 3 (1000) (164 cal 4C 10.6F 13.3P)

1 slice chard and spinach crustless quiche (liked it so much I ate it twice)

Meal 4 (1400) (309 cal 11C 14.7F 32.8P)

2 beef kofte (meatballs) and 1/2 cup puréed pinto Beans

Meal 5 (1800) (327.2 cal 52.2C 3.3F 20.3P)

1 serving chicken tinga

1/2 cup puréed pinto beans

60 g steamed green beans

Persian melon

Meal 6 (2030) (130 cal 24C 3F 2P)

1 serving Maria biscuits

TOTAL 1310 cal 105.1C 54.8F 97.4P - exactly within my macros per my nutritionist. I am just short of 10 weeks post-op. (Note, before someone jumps in about how that's SO MANY CALORIES—I burn at least 1000 calories a day just in exercise and physical work which I need to do, so it has to get fueled. When I was eating much less, I had no energy and no strength to do things like move hay bales. And I am still in the honeymoon of losing 4-5 lbs. a week.)

I don't log meals. I log calories I eat in a day. I used to not do that, but the amount of stalls I have is annoying so I was trying to see if I was eating too many calories. I was. I'm not anymore lol. So Friday's log was as follows (not doing Saturday's because I was busy shopping and baking all day and although I only ate 1115 calories... that was because I skipped lunch because I'm an idiot). So yeah, Friday's:

banana (105 calories)

Light Greek Yogurt (80 calories)

2 no sugar added fudgesicles (80 calories)

Turkey Enchilada (homemade. 250 calories)

Light Greek Yogurt (80 calories)

Protein Shake (160 calories)

Tater Tot Casserole (340 calories)

Light Greek Yogurt (80 calories)

Almonds (160 calories)

Total Calories= 1335 Calories

For reference, I'm almost 22 months post-op so I'm a bit farther in my journey. I also don't drink my calories. I drink Powerade Zero's (which have no calories, no sugar, no fat, and only 2 carbs per bottle). I also round up my calories btw which is why they're all even lol. My calories for that day are probably closer to 1315-1325, but I always round up because I'm weird like that. And I've already reached my goal weight, but haven't reached maintenance yet.

Thank you both. You're both males in the range of where I'm starting so this is so helpful.

@vikingbeast Only 10 weeks post op - do you ever do Protein Shakes anymore?

I have a Protein Shake each day after workout, and I have a serving of collagen peptide Protein at some point in about 250 ml of Water. Unfortunately my preferred Protein Shakes, the Fairlife Core Power ones, are having supply chain issues.

I’m 3 years out. Been maintaining below goal weight since reaching goal at 7 months post op. I’m 5’2”, 118.2 lbs this morning. TBH, I sorta hesitated posting this, but in the interest of full disclosure, here are my food logs for the last 7 days.

DISCLAIMER: I do not recommend this type of diet for those that do not have the same metabolism as I do. Also, I don’t normally eat like this all the time! I’m just in the middle of a crap food period, which I have on occasion 😂

…and for comparison’s sake (and because looking at my historical food logs is one of my fave pastimes, lol) here is what my food logs looked like for 7 consecutive days at my 3 month post op mark:

      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!

      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.
