I had my one month follow-up today... a little late as tomorrow I will be 6 weeks. All went well and he was very happy with my weight loss. I had no complaints so my visit with the surgeon was brief. I did want to talk to the dietitian to ask a few questions.
My doctor's office is different from most in that they don't really tell me to count carbs and they are not a fan of super low calories. Today I was told I need to eat more. The dietitian said I need to be getting 900 calories a day at this point. She said the only other thing I need to worry about is getting 60-80 grams of protein and drinking lots of water. I am not going to lie, I am relieved to hear she wants me to eat more. I really have no problem getting 900 calories in throughout the day. I had been sticking to 600-800 and my loss wasn't as impressive as it had been when I was eating 1000-1200 my first few months after my Lap Band.
I am also happy that they feel carbs are important and long as I am getting in my protein they want me supplementing with fruits and veggies and other good for me things. I want a balanced diet (as balanced as 900 calories can be). I will be interested to see how this impacts my next week of weight loss. Anyway, I will weigh in tomorrow and update the old ticker.
We are getting some really crappy weather here in MI... and I am tired from working all weekend. I am already waiting for the weekend!
