Hey Miss G: You should probably talk with your NUT. I was able to go from 80 -90 gms. of protein at 18 months out to 50 - 60 gm. per my NUT. I asked for a daily calorie count and according to my height and weight I can shoot for 1500 a day. I know calories don't really mean as much in the earlier days of WLS, but I'm a little ways out and calories do come into play for me. It also helps me to be mindful about what I'm eating and not to waste all my calories on something forbidden and keeps my choice more healthy. My DH was craving a maple breakfast roll, and I figure when he left the house yesterday that he would come back with one........he actually read the back of the package and found out that one was 330 cals. Stopped him from eating one. I don't think he looked at the carbs or fat, but I was impressed! LOL! So he had a Bacon Cottage Cheese Muffin with a drop of SF strawberry jelly and a pcs of lean ham.
I'm like Leenie, I will get hair loss, and look general unhealthy if I don't get in enough protein.
