For those who have had RNY -- how many grams of fat per meal can you tolerate (without dumping or other problems)? Let's say you are eating virtually no carbs or sugar to make it simple. People with epilepsy do best on an extremely low carb, moderately low protein, high fat diet (a "ketogenic" diet). Of course, with RNY the ultra low carbs and moderately low protein works, but the high fat has to be out forever.
However, could you eat (without discomfort or problems) 10 grams of fat in a meal? 15 grams? Does your tolerance for fat intake get better with time (if so, how much)? I should stress again I am not looking for weight loss advice with this question (e.g, that everyone should cut back on fat intake to lose weight or that eating fat is just bad for you).
I know this may seem like an odd question, but it is important to me. The more those of you who have had RNY could tell me, in detail, about how you respond to fat intake, the better informed I can be in making a surgery decision.
