How much weight did you lose per month after 6 months?

Yeah, i went ultra low throughout the 7 months of weight loss phase, for me, that meant under 20g NET carbs per day (i don’t count fibre nor sugar alcohols).

20grams does seem low. That's Keto number right there. Wouldn't know how to do that when you're consuming fruits and vegetables. And even dairy in my case.

Did your program needed you to consume the fruits and veggies along with Protein?

I didn’t really eat any fruit during weight loss phase save for the occasional berry when i got closer to goal. I did eat some veggies (kale, lettuce, spinach) but only if i had room after eating my protein…which didn’t happen very often.

The only dairy i ate during weight loss phase was cottage cheese and plain greek yogurt…and if I remember correctly I didn’t start eating these until about month 5 (i’m lactose intolerant).

And finally, I actually didn’t follow my prescribed program. They wanted me to be at 1200 cals by month 3, with a macro split of 50%~25%~25% of low-glycemic veggies, Protein, and starches respectively. I got nowhere close to that. I came up with my own program through research and trial and error.

I did tell my NUt about what i was doing, and while she did tur-tut me about maybe eating more, she wasn’t overly concerned (especially since my labs always came back satisfactorily) and was actually always the first one to rave about my weight loss progress. So, go figure.

***And again, i want to stress to any readers of this to do your due diligence and consults with professionals before embarking on any drastic food intake changes. This worked for me. It may or may not work for you.

There are a couple of things you can pretty much depend upon after weight loss surgery. One: the more you have to lose the faster you’ll lose at the beginning. Two: the heady exciting weight loss rate you have at the beginning doesn’t continue. Three: the closer you are to your goal weight the more slowly you’ll lose. Welcome to experiencing the frustration of number three. The scale that hardly moves. Your goal weight is just there in touching distance. The days & weeks slowly pass with little to show…. But don’t worry, you will get there. Your weight loss is slowing because you’re eating more & are getting to the point where you are consuming the number of calories your body needs to function.

Congrats on your weight loss so far. Whoo hoo!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
