9 years post op help!
I'm 9 years out. I originally lost 230lbs and I have since had a baby and gained back 45 lbs. I'm stressing and trying so hard to loose it but I can't remember how much protein a day and sugar I should be getting/avoiding a day. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Here's a typical day for me:800 - 1200 calories No more than 40g carbohydrate Minimum 60-100g protein Minimum 64 oz. water 2 centrum multi vitamin 4 calcium + vitamin D I have 3 meals and 2 snacks per day and try not to go more than 4 hours without eating something. I hope this helps and good luck to you.
I also need this. However, I am 5 yrs post op. Struggling. I feel as if it takes more to get full.. Havent taken vitamins though. Need to find some that don't make me nauseous.
I take flintstones chewable and have no issues with nausea or stomach pain from them like I did others.

Hi - I'm 4 years post op. Taking vitamins daily is critical as well as having your vitamin levels checked by your GP every six months. We don't absorb vitamins as well post surgery and we are vulnerable to iron deficiencies which can be very serious. I also still check in every 6 months with a dietician at the Bariatric clinic I went through and this helps so much.
