    help with post operation diet

    Going in for surgery for a hernia on March 4th, this is my current diet and excersise schedule, anyone have any suggestions on how I should alter it after surgery. I am going to be layed up about 6 weeks.Besides from the PWO carbs what else should I get rid of. I was thinking of half the fat per meal, would that be enough? Obviously I am on a cutting diet. Thanks fellas, I would appreciate any advice.

    5:45 AM - Coffee
    6:15-7:00 - Cardio (3.3 mph at 7 incline on treadmill)
    7:45- 1/2 cup oatmeal w/ water/ 6 egg whites/broccolli
    10:30- isopure(2.5 scoops) with 2tbsp natty PB
    1:00- Tuna(1 can) with full fat mayo(or 25 almonds) and broccolli
    3:00 - lean protein and fat(this meal usually varies)
    5:00 - 6:00 workout
    6:15 - Post workout shake 20 G pro/with 80 grams carbs (from dextrose) or oatmeal if thats all thats around
    7:15 - PPWO - 8 oz.lean meat with one piece of whole wheat bread or brown rice
    10:30 - 2.5 scoops isopure with 2 tbsp natty PB

    I have the same problem as you from surgery, I also asked the same question. My advice would be to drop the cals a bit because you will not be as active so you will burn less calories. Wait didnt you say you willl be laid up in bed? In your diet outlines you have pwo and ppwo, I thought you were going to be laid up, how are you going to lift?

    the diet in my post is my current diet. I will be laid up in bed only for a day or two. I will not be lifting for 5 to 6 weeks.

    thanks fellas- just dropping down the cals to 1500 should be appropriate. Not looking forward to it but really have no choice..
