I would like to know how closely we are to be counting carbs.  I am two and a half years out and doing well maintaining my weight at 130 with no regain.  Thanks for your responses.

I have never counted Carb Grams.  I am a Lacto Ovo Vegetarian so Carbs come with the territory.  I eat Simple (dairy, fruit) and Complex (beans, vegetables, whole grains) Carbohydrates.  Please see my profile page if interested.

My surgeon told us only to count protein, and to limit "white carbs".  I will be 7 years out in August and am maintaining just fine doing that.

I was never told to limit carbs, but stay away from starches and white carbs as a general rule.

It sounds like you are doing great. Why the interest in cutting carbs now?

Thanks for the encouragement.  I guess I just want to make sure that I am keeping things on track and also since I am approaching the dreaded end to my honeymoon, I just want to do a mental check-in with myself and with you guys here to help me keep my stuff straight LOL.  I feel that overall I do a good job in keeping regain away, but I can eat more and just want to stay on track.  Coming here helps me to do that.

I count proteins and calories, limiting carbs.  

 “Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room.”― Marc Hack

My bariatric program does count carbs.  For Maintanence (18 months +) 1200-1400 calories a day, 130+ grams carbs, 80 grams protein.

 I've been tracking my food for 2 months and average 1100 calories and 80-100 grams carbs & 90 grams protein, daily.  I stay away from processed food, white foods (flour/sugar/junk) and fast food.

I hope that helps.  Penny

Thanks Penny for your feedback.  My surgeon's office and nutritionist takes into account the whole diet and how we should be eating since my surgery.  I had a really tough nutritionist, and she really taught me a lot, is why I believe that I do as well as I do.  I have always had a problem with carbs.  They have always been my downfall and just want to keep the carbs at an acceptable amount, while at the same time making sure there is no regain.
