Calorie Intake after Weight Loss Surgery
How many calories should you consume daily to jumpstart weight loss a year after Weight Loss Surgery?
Hi Michele and thanks for writing.
Generally 800-1000 calories/day is recommended after roux-en-y. If you've had Lap-Band or Gastric Sleeve weight loss surgery, you can eat a little more and sticking with a 1200 calorie diet should help jump start your weight loss.
I'd suggest keeping a food journal in order to get a better handle on where extra caloires are slipping in and also to keep yourself accountable:Lap-Band Food JournalGastric ByPass Food Journal
Here's a sample menu
to jumpstart weight loss. (Clicking on the link will take you to my Lap-Band website. However, the menu can be used with any
type of bariatric surgery. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page for the menu.)
Get back on track...you can do it!!!
