my bmi is 47 and i have a few obesity
complications and im 54
but i cant get wls for numerous reasons.
can someone please help me
by giving me a post op diet plan?
just a general one as i know people
get different ones depending on their surgeons
and im aware that i wont have the advantage
of the lost appetite some people get
but i am hungry all the time anyway.
i just need the recommended foods
and amounts and frequency.
thanks so much
there is a great website with tons of free info, videos on a low carb, moderate protein diet. people like us with high BMI who got to normal weight without WLS!
the basic pre- or post op WLS diet is meat and veggies, no cereals, bread, sugar foods, desserts, juices. www.dietdoctor.com some really motivation info and recipes, tips. I love it, keeps me going.
If you have seen 600# people surgery TV show the Dr puts them on a 1200 calorie low carb, mod. protein diet. 1200 is too low for me so I am doing good at 1500
there is a lady who is losing 100lbs she relates her journey & meal plan at www.ketogenicwoman.com
what would be the portion sizes
and frequency or number of meals?
Most of us find success with high protein, low carb, and not worrying too much about fats.
60-80 grams of protein/day, ~800 calories during weight loss.
I do three meals a day with no snacks and my meals are 4-6 ounces, depending on what I'm eating.
