You don't have to eat meat with wls. There are tons of protein sources out there. I eat tuna but not meat anymore. I just don't like it. I eat lots of beans with a bit of chz. Same protein but the added benefit of fiber. I am a huge Boca Burger fan (especially the Griller line) and Morning Star is pretty fantastic as well. They are easier to chew than meat, no hormones and chemicals, and about the same price pound for pound.
Go back to post op eating. 800 calories a day, protein first and veggies 2nd. Ditch every single white carb. No flour, sugar, rice, pasta, or potatoes. It was the white carbs that got us fat to begin with and as long as you are eating them you are only going to continue to regain.
This is a lifestyle change, not a diet. This is not temporary, this is for the rest of our lives.
