Daily protein requirements post VSG

5 posts in this topic

Several people are talking about their daily goal of protein grams, whether or not they are meeting them.  How is one's daily protein goal calculated?  Is it based one's weight or BMI?  I got through my pre-op without that ever being explained.  Thanks, Razum

In my program, we're told to aim for 50-60 grams of protein and 64 ounces of water (or low cal/low sugar fluids) daily regardless of size or type of surgery.

My doctor told me that for women they need at least 60-80 grams a day and men need at least 80-100 grams. Do you have a nut you can call if so I would put in a call and ask what there recommendation is as I know that every program can be different.

I checked in with my program nurse.  They don't have specific targets for protein. I found it on the USDA.gov site: 80 gms for my goal weight.  Thanks, Razum
