May 2022 makes 15 yrs post op for me. I haven't lost all that I wanted to, but I gained a lot recently while taking a new medication. I'm looking for current guidelines for eating. My surgeon is deceased. I now have a Medicare plan which doesn't cover a nutritionist. Feel a little lost and uninformed as to what are present day guidelines and preferable food and drinks. Would appreciate if someone can show me a (re)starting point or offer suggestions for nowaday guidelines.

Pop over to the RNY board. It is the most active and there is a daily menu thread. Lots of helpful suggestions there and it is a mix of RNY, VSG, and I think a DSer or two.
