When I read on your blogs, I find that a lot of you get similar and very different advice from the advice I've received from my practice. I'm just curious about....:
1) How much water do you drink?
I always get in at least 64 ounces a day.
2) When do you drink water?
It was recommended waiting 1 hour after eating to drink water.
I was told to stop drinking 30 minutes before eating something.
3) How much protein do you eat?
Our group diet consult recommended 60 oz a day for everyone. But from the blogs, it looks like a lot of you eat quite a bit more protein.
4) Do you still do protein shakes?
I'm 2 months post op and my PA asked me if I was still drinking two shakes a day in between meals? Waaaah...I hate shakes!
5) What is your favorite band friendly mushy?
I love non fat refried beans with melted cheese and taco bell salsa. 170 kcals and full of protein.
6) How many kcals do you take a day or do you not count kcals?
I try for 1200-1400kcals a day. My dietian told me to just try to eat 1 cup of food per meal of healthy food. I think I need a little more accountability.
7) What foods make you stuck?
Dense breads like pizza dough, bagels, rolls.
