Nirerin said exactly what I was going to say-- some types of recovery require lots of calories, so asking the doctor is vital.

If s/he does clear you to keep restricting calories, I think you'll be best off staying at the lower end of your current range rather than changing your range. The bottom of the range is meant for times you can't or don't exercise, and it overlaps with the top of the next range, so you will probably still lose a little without being worried that you're not eating enough to meet nutritional needs.

ask your doctor. depending on what kind of surgery you are having and where you are otherwise medically the answer may vary. your doctor may feel that losing weight is a primary goal and won't interfere with your recovery. your doctor may feel that getting the extra nutrients in that your body will need for recovery outweighs any loss for the moment, so you may want to aim to maintain for a bit.

-google first. ask questions later.

Personally, I wouldn't restrict calories while my body is healing. Others may have a different opinion but I would stay within that calorie range until you get the okay to start exercising again.

If my 1500-1800 calorie intake includes exercising, should I lower my calorie intake since I cannot exercise because of my surgery? If so, how should I work that?
