Hey all! I'm 1.5 years out from VSG. Just wondering what your daily calorie intake averages? I'm finding I'm more hungry being this far out and I'd like to take in a bit more food if I could. MFP says I could take in around 1500 but is this still accep

Hi all! I'm now 11 month postop VSG but I started getting symptoms about a month ago. Suddenly, everything I eat feels like it is stuck at the base of my throat. I haven't changed my diet at all or my eating habits or chewing, etc. literally nothing ha

Hi all. Just curious what people take from all the different surgeons. Mine said I had to take specifically 1000 mg daily of calcium citrate (not carbonate) and it must have vitamin D in it. Along with a a multi-vitamin. Now, the only calcium citrate I

Hey all! I'm just over 7 months post-sleeve and down 105 lbs. Whoohoo! But I'm noticing meat is really a turn off lately. In fact, I get quite nauseated even looking at it. What are some high protein non-meat foods that I can use to hit my 60g protein

Not fish, please. But flavorful recipes, marinades, coatings, etc for beef, chicken and pork. Struggling to enjoy protein haha

So they have me taking 1000 mg a day of calcium because that's the daily recommended value. I already have 2 cups of milk a day with my shakes and that is 60% of my calcium. So why do I need to take so much calcium? I've already asked my doctor, waitin

I am two months post op and my cousin is getting married next August. I'm her maid of honor and we have to order dresses in the next 2 months. I'm expecting to hit my final weight which is 175 lbs by then. I'm 5'9" and wondering from the other ladies o

I follow all the rules, chewing very thoroughly, small bites.. but no matter what I eat, I can't make a meal last 30 minutes. So I'm asking, is there a health reason behind it? I don't want to be doing something to hurt myself. I'm 7 weeks post op.

I'm having trouble hitting 60g. Please include the serving size and grams of protein. Also, I don't eat fish or cottage cheese. Thanks in advance!

Just curious how long it takes the actual staples holding your new stomach closed to heal. Like what's the magic time frame for your stomach to not be at risk of opening?

Just wondering if it's ever possible to dine out and eat some of my burger meal without looking like I don't like the food. If you can eat a burger without picking it apart, even half, how long postop till you could do so?

I was sleeved on June 27 and am going to be cleared for solids and exercise on August 10. Just asking people within a year postop, what's a typical day of eating for you? Also, what do you do for exercise? I want to maximize my weight loss as best as p

Also, what did you find was hard to digest? And how much were you able to eat when you could eat again?


mndvrmtt posted a discussion topic 2 years, 2 months ago

Exactly what the title says. I'm 6 days post op and have alot of gas like pain when swallowing still and sometimes when just sitting or laying down. How long does this last for? It's suoer uncomfortable.

I'm dying for a good night's sleep and my one lap site is really bugging me. Roughly how long til you could sleep on your side or stomach without propping anything up? 


mndvrmtt posted a discussion topic 2 years, 2 months ago

Exactly what the title says. Just wondering when I'll be able to go out for dinner and eat more than a couple bites.


mndvrmtt posted a discussion topic 2 years, 3 months ago

Why do some people only have to do a week and I have to do two weeks?? I'm mad about this. 


mndvrmtt posted a discussion topic 2 years, 3 months ago

Two weeks of this pisses me off. I understand it all BUT I know other programs only require a week of it or two weeks but allow you one protein/veggie meal a day. What gives? I am only on day 2 and feel like I'm becoming depressed. I'm sitting at work
