Get with your RD and medical team. Every person varies.

Are you looking to maintain what you have lost?
Are you still losing?
Have you regained any of the weight you have lost?

For me personally, I am on maintenance and I eat between 1,000 - 1,200 calories, 60+ grams of protein, 100-150 carbs, and fat under 50.

That is what works for me, but you may be different which is why it is important to get with your team to discuss your specific needs.

My RD told me not to worry about calories so much as to worry about protein.

I am going to invite you to join a Spark team that is geared to people that have had WLS.

Good Luck!

When you had your surgery, you should have been referred to a registered dietitian who created a meal plan specific to your needs. That would be the best person to ask about how many calories and nutrients you should be consuming.

I'm at a standstill, had a gastric bypass surgery over a year ago, and am not sure what are the daily calorie & nutrient intake for me.
