I am post-op 7 months.

Don't worry though, you will have small stalls here and there while your body adjusts. That is completely normal!!

the biggest thing is make sure you are getting your protein and your fluids.

Give the RD a call tomorrow and let them know what you told us here. They will have the best advice to offer!!

Hi Dominic

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.

Good luck!

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.
