I had the gastric bypass surgery about 2 1/2 months ago. The doctor told me to eat 3 times a day. I am looking for good foods in small amounts and ideas for supplemental protein as well.
The required amount is about 60 something grams a day. I tend to eat 3 small (very small) meals (if you would even call it that). I am trying to eat stuff that I can tolerate. Some stuff just grosses me out. The nutritionist told me that whatever I eat should only have no more then 3 grams of fat and no more than 3 grams of sugar. I really haven't followed those rules, but I don't go crazy with it. They want me to drink protein drinks and such, but I cannot stand the taste of the stuff. I have tried a few powders but they are pretty gross to. I think that the limit of cals. per day shouldn't exceed like 300. But I am pretty sure I usually do. I am doing pretty good on losing the weight, but I definitly know that I might get only 1/3 to 1/2 of the amount I am supposed to everyday. I am hoping to find recipies that are high in protein but low in sugar and fat. And ideas for getting the supplemental stuff in too.
