    Default Does anyone else have this problem?

    I had my surgery 88 days ago. I lost 30 pounds in 37 days. I think that was fabulous. Then for 3 weeks, I didn't eat/drink enough protein and didn't lose any weight. So, I figured out to drink one protein shake a day and eat 6 oz. of protein. Now, its been over a month and I haven't lost any weight. I actually gained 2 pounds. I take 20 mins. to eat and stop eating when I feel full. Sometimes, I only eat 1 oz. of protein, then snack on the other oz. of protein a couple hours later. What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions or advice would be great. Thanks, Kim

    Hi Kim,
    How much protein is in your shake? it's hard to metabolise it if you drink like a big 60g worth at once. I never used to know this! So it's better to spread it through the day which works quite well if you have a protein shake for breakfast, maybe a boiled egg somewhere, some nuts (caution) and some seafood or meat and a bit of veg... and your 2.2 litres of water. You're aiming for 80g or more of protein a day.
    What else are you eating? Do you keep a log? Can you send a days worth of eating to us so we can help you out...

    Hi Stacey,
    A protein shake is 30 grams of protein. I eat a scrambled egg for breakfast. A protein shake for a snack. 2 oz. of chicken with 1 tab. of light mayo and 1/2 avocado. 4 shrimp for a snack and 3 asparagus. 2 oz. of fish, shrimp or chicken for dinner with 1/3 of a cucumber. I don't know why I'm not losing weight right now. Very frustrating. Thanks, Kim

    dojasmom, since you are less than 3 months post-op I would reach back out to your bariatric group. Take your food and exercise journal with you if you hav a visit or email it to the dietitian if you do a phone conference. I was a slow loser, which was great for me but I did have a steady loss. Even during my plateaus I would still lose a couple of ounces. So I think you should be losing even a few ounces every week.

    Your doctor's office wants you to be successful and they are there to help you with any concerns you have.

    Are you exercising? You could possibly not be eating enough. I know I had to eat more when my weight loss would stall because I do exercise a lot. Also, are you tracking measurements? Your body could be changing even though the weight is not moving. Try using an app to really calculate what you are eating.

    I know this weekend, I felt like I ate a ton (but it was all high protein.) And I finally broke a stall. Like Christie said, you may need to up your calorie/protein intake.

    Hi Kim, Sorry I only just got back to this. You're fairly early out and your diet looks really reasonable to me ( but I'm not a dietitian) I wonder if its just a month long stall, I guess this does happen with some people but frustrating for you. I agree with above, if you can go back to your dietitian for advice that could be useful. im sure it will change soon though, everything changes :-)
