High protein vs HIgh fiber or both ?



Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what surgery you've had, but your Protein numbers sound good. It's usually best to get as much protein as possible after surgery, especially if you've had a malabsorptive procedure like DS or RYGB. Your Fiber number does look a bit high, so I would be careful with that as too much fiber can have the opposite of its normal effect and cause Constipation, gas, etcetera. If you haven't noticed any of these symptoms I would keep an eye on it but proceed as you have and reach out to your team for their opinion.

I was personally given a goal of 30 grams of fiber per day by my team.

Hello @Rose perez, If you are really 75lbs and its not a typo, you need to be speaking to your bariatric team. At that weight you are too restricted.

66 grams of Fiber is REALLY high. The recommended amount is about 20-30, as I recall. Most people have a hard time getting even that much.

Idk these mission carb tortillas have 28 grams of Fiber in one. I think the things that are man made in order to have low “net carbs” they add a ton of fiber to them?? I imagine that would be really hard to get from Whole Foods though.

Yeah, I second @Catwoman7. Somewhere in the ballpark of 30 grams is what is recommended. Some days I may get a lot more, but a daily 66 grams of Fiber a day does seem quite high. Can ask your team what they think. Everybody is different.

      Still purging all of the larger clothing. This morning, a shirt that I ADORED wearing ended up on top. Hard to let it go, but it was also hard to let go of those habits that also no longer serve my highest good. Onward and upward!

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!
