that depends on how far you are in your post surgery... What phase you are at.

Check with your dietician. There are many caloric recommendations around but you have to find the one that is right for you. There are lots of factors to consider like gender, age, activity level, how far out you are, etc.

Some people are told to get to 1200 within a couple of months. There was no way I could have done that. I’m female, in my 50s, short & not very active. I was barely eating 900 by goal at 6 months & I could not physically eat more than I was. I only eat about 1300 now to maintain.

My surgeon and dietician didn't believe in counting calories, so they never gave me a limit. They said just eat small portions, focus on Protein first and when you're full, stop eating.

That being said, I normally see at your stage people here talking about 900.

My program has 1200 for women, 1400 for men from day one.

It increases to 1600 for women and 1800 for men at 6 months.

      😫 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 .
