Just curious to see what the amount of food people are eating. After gastric sleeve. How
cups or ounces at a time?

I have never been able to eat much at one sitting so I have 4 or 5 small meals a day.

Breakfast -100gms of Protein yogurt and a large latte

lunch - 25gms cheese, 25 grams deli meat and a satsuma or cucumber and Tomato or 1 slice of super seeded bread with ham and soft cheese

A homemade milk shake

Supper - 50 gms meat, 2 tbsp veg and gravy. Or 150 gms chicken curry with a tiny salad or 100 gms fish with a sauce and a tbsp of veg. I am still unable to eat Pasta and rice and have never liked potato products,

Supper 2 - I will eat any leftover food from my earlier supper plate then have a low cal ice lolly. I am a lolly addict. I openly admit it. If I have room and need more protein, I will have a protein pudding or 25 gms of cheese and a piece of fruit

I record about 60 - 80 grams of protein a day and 900 - 1200 calories a day. At the end of this month, I am 1 year out. I am trying to up my protein and calories because when I have a busy day, I get very tired. I am one of the lucky ones, I have little appetite

I had GS in March and I am surprised by how little I can eat still. My Breakfast is always a Protein Shake (which takes me 1-2 hours to finish), lunch is either a sargento balanced breaks or a good culture cottage cheese cup. dinner is a few bites of whatever my husband cooks....literally 3-4 bites is all. I get full off of a half a cup of Soup. I know this is what I wanted, but it is mentally difficult some days as I want to be able to eat enough to feel satisfied and that doesn't happen when you can only have a few bites. Cottage cheese or yogurt is about the only food I can eat a normal amount of and that's getting old!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
