Building muscle after gastric bypass surgery
smhefner55 posted:
I have also had gastric bypass surgery. I can only eat about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of food at a time. I eat about 5 or 6 meals a day. These consist of mostly proteins and some carbs. But I'm so week I cant even do one sit up now. I want to rebuild my muscles. What's the best way to do this? I also drink protein shakes at 8 to 10 oz a day.
