Yep, although you might wanna make sure and wait for another person to confirm it as I am on the fence. Better yet, why don't you email the Medifast guys because they can give you an answer better...
I was told 100 to 120 g of protein a day ...
I was also told the minimum was 60-80 grams/day..
My actual protein intake varies a bit but is roughly 120+ grams/day. Primary regular sources are greek yogurt, fish (salmon, tuna, cod, etc.), soy 'nuts', various real nuts, various cheeses, milled.
And hemp seed, peanut butter, and almond butter...
I haven't heard that either. I'm doing pretty good on the 60 to 80 range but not really close to the 100 to 120 range. wow...
I know I dont get in that much.. but at 15 months out my labs have all comke back great!! a person can only eat so much!!.. hehe..
Good point. I probably should have added that for the first 4-5 months or so I was at around 80 grams of protein/day. I've gone up in the past few months mostly due to increased and consistent.
And other considerations. For the past 3 months, I've been getting 1 hour of cardio 5-6 days per week. Have also added 1 hour resistance exercises at the gym each day 5 days per week (alternate days between upper body and lower body exercises.).
Turns out spending my lunch hour at the gym is a great ways to also.
Food smells and the cravings those smells induce....
I'm still losing weight - though quite slowly (~rough rate 1-2 pounds per month) and will likely stablized in the weeks ahead. That's fine. With my BMI now a little above 23 and my diabetes under full control for 8 months, losing weight is fast fading as a goal. Maintenance is my primary focus..
Focusing on "proteins first, always, at every meal" and regular, consistent.
Is important not only for my weight management but for coexisting conditions abolutely critical to my sucessful weight management as well...
Now that I'm back to work, I've been struggling to get in the 60-80 grams! If they up it, I'll have to drink more protein drinks. Just joined the YMCA so hopefully exercising will help me lose more weight!..
My 1 year was may 26.. went to my doctor who is also the head of cardiology at beaumont hospital where I had my.
And he told me I no longer have to do the protein shakes... can you believe that?..
I just went to my support meeting Monday the 24th and nothing was said by the PA who runs the meetings. I do know I was told 60-80 for women and 80-100 for men...
My program back 3 yrs ago was 70-90 but my trainer at my gym says with.
I need more like 100-120 grams. The calculation they use for women who want lean muscle plus lose fat is .8 gram per pound of body weight. I could never get that much in but I have upped it from what it is using my protein bar for breakfast and high protein choices for lunch/dinner. You really need the protein to repair your muscles if doing any type of weight or.
Tonight, I attended a support meeting at the center connected with my surgeon's office, and learned that the amounts of protein for GBS and Sleeve patients has been changed...upped to 80-120 grams a day. Anyone else heard of this?( Apparently not affecting lap banders). This is something I will confirm with the nutritionist. I was still under the impression the 60-80 was good. Apparently some recent studies are suggesting we are a bit low in that range..
What do you all know about this?.
13 months post op..
My nutritionist assigned me that range right out of the gate more than a year ago. I was advised 60 was the bare minimum, but not optimal. I still keep my intake high and never plan to change that - it keeps cravings and hunger at bay. Having so many differences in what we are advised as GBS patients is still at the top of my list of wrong things which plague the medical community. I agree with those who keep their intake high b/c they are working on physical conditioning. Keeping it high is also important for healing if you have an injury, have had.
, or are experiencing an unsually high level of stress...
Since the day I was sliced apart I have never gotten the ANY where near the required amount but have been quite successful in my journey. Personally (not having the hair loss concern LOL) I think Americans eat way to much dead animal protein and if that's not bad enough they drink altered milk with sugar..
Now that just my opinion, stick with the program and you'll do just fine..
I always do at least 95 a day. I was told my range was 82-102 based on my height..
I'm wondering how long into this journey most of you are at... Not that it doesn't matter we all have protein requirements but I'm only one month out and I can barely get in 40 consistently a day. As of today I'm upping my protein shakes and starting some.
As of today..
I find it completely difficult to get in my fluid and protein. I started tolerating tea which is of great comfort to me so that will help in regards to fluids. And just got in some meal replacements and protein shots from Bariatric Advantage to help. Even my boyfriend is commenting on how much hair I'm loosing. This is a challenge for sure! :).
One thing of concern, every since my.
I've been extremely short of breath... I live on the second floor and by the time I get up the stairs I have to sit down immediately and take about ten minutes to catch my breath. This is new even prior to my.
I could run up a couple flights of stairs without a problem. I'm seeing my primary dr. tomorrow... just wondering?..
Deardarlink,it took me about 6 months to get all my energy back (and wow it came back by the truckload)..but that was me,others have recovered sooner..
As for protein, I try to get 60-70g per day, sometimes more. At eight months out I feel really good, but I am also starting to work out more and I think I should up my protein...
Yes my Dr. wants 120 grams of protein a day as a goal. I do a 50 gm protein shake in the morning most days and then getting the rest of the protein in later in the day is pretty easy. I also feel better when I get more protein...
I am 13 months post op, and wrote my email of concern about how much protein everyone was having, because I had been told 60-80 from the beginning of pre-op days. Like you, in the beginning you can't consume all of that, much less the 100+ I'm hearing about now. I barely got 60 today, though other days I get 80 grams of protein. Anyhow, don't be concerned...you will just be able to eat more later..
Cindy you're so right. Now I'm o ly 7mo out I can do 60 to 80 with one of callie's pure protein bars and a scotch. LOL Like I'd rePly drink. (during the day) LOL.
And I do eat dead animals and fish but WTF, 100+ grams? Girls you will grow testicales if you continyiu with this bs. However should that occour, please send photos.
