I'm 7 months out.

I start with coffee-and usually add half a Premier  Protein shake to it. I drink the other half later in the day for a snack. 

An hour or two after coffee, I have Greek Yogurt or 2 scrambled eggs for breakfast. Once in a while, I have 1 egg and 1/2 slice whole wheat toast. 

Lunch is leftovers from dinner the night before or lunch meat and cheese rolls-4 oz. 

Afternoon snack , I'll have half a protein bar or a cheese stick. Although lately, I've been skipping an afternoon snack. 

Dinner: Lean protein like chicken breast, pork loin, pot roast or fish/ seafood -, 4 oz. and veggies if I have room. 

I have started to incorporate some whole grains in my diet, but not very often. 


I woke up in between a memory and a dream...

Hi, I'm 6 months post-op. This is my routine:

wake up-8oz water with multi vitamin and birth control pill

coffee with half and half, sometimes 2 cups

at work I take 2 large water bottles and drink through out the day - 40 oz of water

1st break-yogurt with 2 calcium/vitaminD3 pills

lunch-cheese stick, nuts, 1/2 apple with 2calcium/vitaminD3pills

snack-RTD shake

after work-1/2 protein bar

dinner-whatever I cooked for family but I just eat the meat and couple spoonfuls of veggies...chicken, meatballs, fish, shrimp pork chop, meatloaf, etc.....3/4 cup to 1 cup

snack-slice of cheese, 4 crackers, with dill pickle 

2-3 more glasses of water

right before bed finish with glass of water and iron pills

I don't count calories, I get 70-100oz water, 60-80g of protein.
