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.

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
