    Weight loss after surgery.

    Not really sure where to put this but this is the closest forum so here we go.

    About 2 years ago I had a really bad shoulder injury where they ended up doing a bunch of work done on my shoulder. I can't even name it all. I have some tendons reattached and since all of that I have lost 25% rang of motion on my left shoulder.

    Since my injury and surgery I have put on not a lot of weight but a little weight where the uniform doesn't fit like it used to and I am trying to my normal weight. My job requires me to be in good physical health and I'm trying to get back down to what I feel comfortable at. I have never been one that is good on a diet I just eat what I want and from working and my recreational activities I have kept the weight off. I would like to know what a good diet is and how to hopefully maintain a good active weight as I approach my 30's. I know that everyone says that a good is key.

    I guess my question is what is a good diet to follow when you are working from 7pm till 4am and are on the go the entire time.

    You need to eat five small meals, 45-35-20 macro ratios (protein, carbs, fats)

    Ooh, can't agree with 45/35/20. That sounds like a recipe for sluggishness to me. Actually, I don't recommend worrying that much about macronutrient percentages anyway. Just eat a nutrient-dense, plant-based diet, and the macros will tend to take care of themselves.

    And I would recommend 6-8 small meals per day.

    And as I always say, a good diet is this:

    Hope this helps!
