I would go to your surgery group as it's more active and they should be able to help you.

Good luck!

Thank you Gwen for taking the time to reply :)

That is great advice. I'd love to have my BED under control before the surgery as I'm afraid I will slip and end up bursting my stomach (i.e. a hernia or worse).

Thank you again, Meg

I am 10 years out from RNY. I am maintaining right now at about 150 pounds (24 BMI) consuming 2000 calories a day. 1200-1600 calories at maintenance seems to be about average.

I'd say I eat a fairly "normal" diet and I eat about the same amounts as my friends who weigh about the same as me (much less than I did preop, of course).

I CAN eat a lot more and do sometimes, but rarely. People who make excuses and do not use their tool as it should be used can and do gain their weight back. This is not magic.

I'm still slowly losing weight, but a normal day of eating for me is 4-6 ounces of food twice a day, and one protein shake for breakfast. The shake is because I dislike solid food in the morning, not because I need a protein shake.

As someone who also has Binge Eating Disorder, I HIGHLY recommend that you address that prior to WLS - preferably with therapy and medication. No WLS is going to resolve the BED :(

Thank you Liz, that really helps. I'm looking at all the surgeries right now and am already nervous about being able to maintain any diet plan post-op as I've failed at so many.

I'll read more on this site before I post more questions as you are right - there is so much info here :)

Depends a lot on your surgery. Most people with a DS have to eat 6 times a day to maintain others have to eat less than 1000 calories a day.

What surgery are you looking at having done? And we have forms for most surgeries and it would be a better question to ask there.
