After my weight loss surgery of gastric sleeve, I was good with my diet for a while, but things have gotten messy and I’m not sure about my next move. I’m starting to wonder if I should be using some sort of calorie counter app or food diary template to monitor nutrient intake, or should I just stick with conventional diets.
I had about 150 pounds to lose before surgery, I then lost 75ish after the gastric sleeve. I then went on the atkins diet. I did OK, but didn’t lose more weight. Then I tried the ketogenic diet, then I tried vegan. None of them took me to the next level, and the last 75 pounds have been stubborn as can be. I never used a calorie tracker, I didn’t think I needed one. Currently, I’m not on a diet and I’m not eating very well.
Should I just use a food diary (like the MyFitness pal app) and keep it simple with no restrictions – just a balanced diet with smaller portions? Or do you have a recommended diet after gastric sleeve? What about a breakdown for carbs, proteins, and fats? Do I need to stop trying specialized diets?
