Because of your recent surgery, your dietititan needs to be the one to advise you on your calorie needs. I would recommend meeting with him/her again to discuss it, and hopefully they can create a plan to help you reach your goals, while still getting all of the nutrients you need at the same time.

I'm post op four weeks from a gastric bypass. My dietician wants me to eat every two hours, 1/2 to 1 cup. I've been restricting myself to about 800 calories per day. This is not working, I've not lost a pound in two weeks, even with exercise. I'm 6'3", 265 lb, 58 years old, very active.
How do I determine what my caloric intake should be to lose 1-2 pounds per week?
I've been using your Nutrition tracker and I'm comfortable with it. Any suggestions would be very helpful.
