Need Food/Meal ideas

Hello, I am in my 4th month and I am wondering what/how much I should be eating. I would actually prefer not to eat at all but i find if I dont eat enough, I dont lose anything. Any tips/advise?

First, I'd ask if you are consulting with a nutritionist and/or were you given any guidelines? Next, may I ask what kind of WLS you had? I honestly am too far out to be exact, but I will tell you I was having mostly protein shakes, greek yogurt, eggs, and small amounts of other proteins. I ate (and still eat) many mini meals each day. I was also exercising 6 or 7 days a week. When I wasn't eating I was drinking - water! I was also making sure to take the vitamins and calcium I was told to take. I lost like gangbusters eating this way. Hope this info helps and congrats on your losses so far!
The big question is: How badly do you want this!?!

I agree... what kind of surgery did you have and what guidelines did your surgeon give you?

What have you tried so far? I can give you some ideas, but I don't want you to go against your surgeon's requirements first and foremost.

I was an unintentional vegetarian at 4 mos out... I was definitely in the solids phase (the 4th and last phase on my surgeon's plan), but meat just did not sit well, and I hated having to chew and chew (I have TMJ and my jaw would get sore!). I preferred foods of a "solid" yet soft texture. Eggface's lasagna bake dish was a favorite (ricotta cheese, mozzarella, some Italian seasonings and low sugar pasta sauce micro-waved in a little dish). I also had alot of protein shakes. Premier (Costco and Sams carry it), Lean Body and Oh Yeah brands pre-made shakes were and still are my favorite choices. I like to put coffee in my shakes to make it taste like a Starbucks drink. Another thing I liked was soup (Campbell’s cream of chicken and mushroom (not two soups, it’s both flavors) is low in carbs and tastey and thicker than broth so more filling.

10 sizes lost, 1 or 2 to go!
