My wife and I went to the “one on one” appointment with the nutritionist on Thursday and it was really 45 minutes about my habits and 5 minutes about protein drinks and what to expect after the surgery. She was very nice and answered all of our questions. She explained that I need to lose a minimum of 144 pounds to be at a “normal” BMI. I actually want to lose about 20 pounds more than that but what blew me away was that I will be losing more than half my body weight….a whole person! She went on to multiply the number by 55% – the average loss of someone who has the gastric sleeve done – and it went down to 76 pounds. I believe she called it what I can “realistically expect to lose” just by having the surgery done.
