When i last had a hospital appointment they said the mushrooms peppers and onions are all good for nutrition and the mozzarella is also good for Protein providing its in small amounts like 40grams

Mushrooms offer some Fiber and are relatively low calorie, so I wouldn't worry about a few of those and are approved by my bariatrc team. The cheese is too much, in fact it looks like the largest quantity on your plate. You should get at most something like one full skim string cheese stick a day. Add next non starch veggies at most 1/4 cup per meal and 3oz cup of lean Protein and one tablespoon of starchy veggies - that's it! I'd also eliminate the imitation crab/fish sticks, too much protein.

So it should consist of:

3 oz lean protein / Protein Shake is calorie.

1/4 cup non starchy veggie

1 tablespoon starchy veggies

and in between meals 64oz of Water. Snacks can be the string cheese (skim) ..this type of thing...

What you had on your plate isn't bad, but it is closer to a maintenance diet after you've lost the weight plate of food!

Definitely cut down the cheese, add veggies and some fruit, keep your fluids up (not sure how much you drink now), and keep your snacking to an absolute MINIMUM. Try to stay away from carbonated drinks, give yourself some variety in your foods, and try using a tracking app to track what you eat, how much, and what you shouldn't eat.

First, there is no one right way to eat to lose or maintain your weight. There’s just the right way for you.

I agree to the suggestion to get in contact with your old dietician or find a new one. I’d also teach for a couple of weeks just to check your calorie & nutrient intake. I’d also get in contact with your surgeon as well to see what other options you have - revision surgery or maybe GLP - 1 meds.

You’ve likely reset your body’s set point. The surgery lowered it but returning to larger portions, poor food choices & bad old habits have raised your set point again. So you’re actually fighting your body now. You’re trying to lose weight & your body is doing all it can to hold on to it. Have a look at Dr Matthew Weiner’s Pound of Loss metabolic reset diet (not that I’m an advocate for any ‘diets’.) It may give you some ideas you could try to see if works for you. He’s a great source of information around all things weight loss, bariatric surgery, etc. (He has a website & a you tube channel.)

If you like being active, I’d add in some weights. Building muscle will help burn more calories & help counteract any muscle loss you experience while losing. Walking will help with general fitness. Remember though, activity only contributes to about 10% of any weight loss.

Oh & don’t listen to your family & friends when they offer advice about your eating, nutrition or weight loss. They mean well but unless they’re qualified nutritionalist, dieticians, bariatric surgeons or medical doctors or had bariatric surgery they really don’t know what they’re talking about. And they’re not you. You know yourself best. You know your psychologically, physiologically & emotionally self best & know how you want to live your life.

All the best.

For the people asking for amounts each meal is.

64 grams of seafood sticks
40 grams of mozzarella
105 grams of steamed chicken breast with peri peri salt
24 grams of peppers with garlic and chilli herbs cooked in air fryer without oil
38 grams of steamed mushrooms
50 grams of onion cooked in air fryer

Can't get everything but in converting to ounces:

2.25 seafood stick 200 calories?
1.5 mozzarella 175 calories
3.7 breast 200 calories
.05 pepper 30 calories
1.35 shrooms 30 calories
1.76 onion 18 calories

So right there over 600 calories, 2x a day is 1200 calories. Add the eggs in and that's over 1300 calories. Depending on what your calorie needs are for a day, there is your food.

I'd tend to agree with folks on getting rid of the mozzarella and seafood sticks. The chicken (or turkey, fresh fish but not salmon which is high calorie/fat) would be better. If you wanted to substitute fresh veggies that were mentioned before, that would be better as you're not getting in really any fiber or greens.

As I dropped weight my caloric needs went down. I'm sure you've gotten that, but upping the calorie expenditure is another thing. If your body is used to a mile walk, walking at a faster pace or jogging or doing 1.5 or 2 miles would be next suggestion.

You also don't detail what you drink. That is a huge factor. Pulling for you!

Seafood sticks are 18 calories each and I have 4 so that's 72 total calories.

Mozzarella I have is 90 calories for 30g so the 40 grams is 120 calories

So that works out at

2.25 seafood stick 72 calories?
1.5 mozzarella 120 calories
3.7 breast 200 calories
.05 pepper 30 calories
1.35 shrooms 30 calories
1.76 onion 18 calories

2 medium size hard boiled eggs 60 calories each total 120

Total 470 and that 2 times a day is 940 a day plus the 2 eggs is 1060 calories a day I think

Just adding my voice to the general advice to eat 3-4oz of Protein per meal (chicken breast seems best for you?) Then a couple of oz of green veg. Berries for Snacks if you really need those. Ditch everything else from that plate? I totally agree there's nothing awful on it but if you are fighting a new set weight (WLS can do a number on that) you might need to redraw the lines of battle.

Strictly protein and green veg till you're losing consistently?

How tall are you? For shorter people we unfortunately have to eat less. I've been struggling with an 18 lb/8 kg regain and I had to replace my food scale because the one I had was no longer giving accurate weights.

Hi.
I'm having some huge issues with my weight and could really do with some help and advice please.
In December 2018 I had a gastric bypass and on the day of the surgery I was 24 stone (336 lb).
Over the next year I got down to 15 stone ( 210lb).
All my friends and family was concerned I wasn't eating enough and said I looked ill due to the rapid weight loss so I started eating a it more.
Fro. 2019 to 2023 my portion sized grow and I was no longer eating the correct foods resulting in me being 21 stone (294lb).
I'm currently on the path to getting my health back on track but I don't seem to be losing weight.
Im one of them people that will eat the same meals every days and this is my current meals all eaten on a bariactric plate.
Breakfast = 2 hard boiled eggs.
lunch = hath a steamed chicken breast, 2 steamed mushrooms, 4 seafood sticks, 2 slices of onion cooked in the air fryer, hath a Peper cooked in the air fryer and 40grams of mozzarella.
Dinner= hath a steamed chicken breast, 2 steamed mushrooms, 4 seafood sticks, 2 slices of onion cooked in the air fryer, hath a Peper cooked in the air fryer and 40grams of mozzarella.
I'm also walking on average 6 miles (9.6km).
In the past 6 months of eating like this my weight has hardly changed, 1 week might be 1lb loss then next week will be 1.5lb gain then 2lb loss ect.
Over 6 moths my weight has only gone down 7lb and I don't know what's going on and I'm starting to get very depressed and I seem to be eating well and being active but the weight scales don't reflect that.
Am I missing something that's preventing me from losing weight?
Thank you

your Breakfast looks great, but your lunch and dinner, yikes 4 seafood sticks ?? when I think of seafood sticks, they are either crumbed or battered and deep fried? and half a chicken breast is that one side of the breast or half of 1 side of the chicken breast? can you cut it down to one or the other. What are you drinking? I know my weight gain and inability to lose right now is due to what I am drinking (coffee and cokes) :(A 7-pound loss is better than a gain, so you got to be happy with that

This is my current lunch and dinner.

It's hath a single chicken breast and the sea food sticks are just prossesed fish and rolled into this shape and eaten straight out of pack that's the red things on the right. This week I lost hath a pound. Don't feel like I'm being rewarded for the effort I'm putting in and really messes with my head.

I drinking about 3000ml ( just under a gallon) of Water a day

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
