I just had a sleeve done. They gave me a bunch of papers at the hospital but, no one ever REALLY spoke about what and how much I should be eating. What are the major guidlines for major long term weight loss??

Thanks guys! This has been the hardest few weeks of my life (and I have 5 kids!!)

700-800 calories a day

protein. 60-80 gyms a day working up to 100 gyms a day while losing

carbs,including sugar,which is a carb. 20 or less gyms a day

non carbs vegs if you can fit them in

64+ ounces of calorie free liquid a day

NO white flour products or cakes,cookies,protein bars,which are basically glorified candy bars,oatmeal,cream of wheat,wraps,etc etc etc

That's distressing - your program should have given you a detailed eating guide as well as a consult with a nutritionist.

After you finished your healing, which tends to be something like 2 weeks of full liquids, 2 weeks of pureed foods, and 2 weeks of soft solids, you should aim for 60+ grams of protein and 64+ ounces of liquid a day. Most programs are low carb. Most people do 600-800 calories in the weight loss phase.
