Topic: RE: 2 months out and 1 lb away from 50 lbs lost. Yay!!
I am taking in between 750 and 900 calories. Seems like the minute I went over 800 calories, the weight started falling off. I worry less about carbs, but I am focusing on protein intake. working on 60-80 grams of protein. I even had 89 grams of protein one day. It was nice! My nutritionist said to not worry about carbs and just focus on protein, but i have tried to stay betwen 40 and 60 carbs and for the most part. And, other than a few days, have stayed within those guidelines. you are doing great!!! 56 lbs is amazing!! To be fair 10 lbs of the 49 lbs I lost was the week before surgery. I always include it because you gain it back somewhat in the hospital and then lose it again after surgery.
Thanks for all of the encouraging comments!
