Hi! I am 3 months out of my gastric bypass surgery. I did very well with my pre op and post op diets. I've lost 35lbs since my surgery on 9/29/21, and 51lbs all together. I've had a hard time figuring out what to eat since I've been on regular food. Some days I do ok but others I end up eating what's there and having dumping issues. I've also been hovering between 206-210 for the last month or so. If anyone has any suggestions I am more than willing to try them!

That's almost four months from surgery, isn't it? Your weight loss stats are very similar to mine. I lost 25lbs before surgery and 27lbs since.

My first advice would be to take a week and track absolutely everything you eat. Go back to basics - Protein first, then veg, then good complex carbs if you have room. No drinking fluids for at least half an hour after eating. Clear the house of junk - you sound like you know that's what's holding you back and causing the dumping. Sticking to the program works (well it has for me so far!) I hope you smash that stall in no time. 💪

Completely agree with the above. Weight and track everything, prioritize Protein at every meal, get your fluids in and take your Vitamins, move your body daily. Even tiny shifts in our habits can lead to stalls and gain, so really being focused on consistency will make the biggest difference. I'm 4 months out and stick to pretty simple meals - good quality protein (chicken, lean beef, etc.) and fresh veggies in some form. Its not exciting, but it works for me.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.
