Hi all, My VSG was nearly 8 years ago.

although my dietitian hates that I do this, I basically just calorie count now. I figured my maintenance range is about 1500-1700 per day (although this will be different for everyone), so as long as I stay in that range at least most of time, I'm good (I still track my food after (almost) seven years, so it's pretty easy to know how many calories I"m consuming)

Once we learn how to eat enough gain weight with a weight loss surgery sized stomach, restriction is not part of the picture anymore. Calorie counting is the only thing that will work. Figure 10 calories per day for each pound that you want to maintain. I want to weigh 136 so know that 1360 calories per day will keep me there. Add more and the regain starts. Exercise gives a tiny bit of help. Keto gives a 10% advantage. if i stayed on keto could add another 136 calories per day and not gain.
