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. 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

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.
