I am very confused and maybe some of you out in blog land will shed a little light on this topic for me.
When I went to the nutritionist she clearly told me to eat around 1,200 calories per day. She said they do not even discuss diets below 1,200 calories.
I mainly keep track of my calories (myfitnesspal is my BFF). I strive to eat between 1,000 to 1,200 but more towards the 1,200 range. Yes, it clearly has been working for me.
I am reading that banded patients should eat about 1-1 1/2 cups per meal. I have even seen some posts on LBT that say posters eat 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup only.
This seems a little absurd to me. Wouldn't I starve if I only at 1/4 cup of food 3 times a day?
So, my question for you all is this.........If I am eating 1,200 and keeping my portions to approximately 1 to 1 1/2 cups (because really that is all I can eat without being uncomfortable) will I stretch my pouch?
I think I am doing the right thing and focusing on calories but so many people talk about volume.
Well, that is my conundrum.
Please post and tell me if I am eating too much!
