Post Gastric Sleeve

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Had my sleeve procedure on September 11, started pre op Optifast on September 1.

I was 165kg and as of today am down to 135kg.


Im not hungry at all, ever, i dont even think about food. In saying this, im struggling i think to get adequate nutrition.

Im still taking my vitamins daily, trying to drink enough fluids, but, im supposed to be on to soft foods now, and even yoghurt is hard to consume. I can get maybe 4-5 teaspoons down before i feel over full.

Im not concerned about not eating, but im more concerned that im damaging myself by not having enough protein or even having enough go in.

Anyone else been in this position? would love to hear from you

Wow, 30kgs In 6 or so weeks is insane!

as long as you are having meal replacements (optifast etc) and protein shakes you should be ok?

What does your surgeon and nutritionist say?
