I’ve been reading these forums for a couple months, thanks to all of you for the valuable info you provide. I had a question I hoped somebody might be able to help me with.
I’m going to be getting upper and lower jaw surgery in a little over a week to correct an underbite. For the first week or two, my jaw is going to be rubberbanded shut, and I’m going to be on a soft food diet after that for several more weeks. My question is, what can I do to prevent all my lbm from going bye-bye while I’m recovering? Any advice for getting all the calories in (e.g. supplement recommendations)? How long does it generally take before I’m able to start lifting again? If anybody has gone through this before and has any advice, I’d definitely appreciate it.
Right now I’m 19 years old, 6’3" at ~185 lb w/ approx 9-10% bf. I’ve been on massive eating and following Joel’s maximal size program for the past few weeks in hopes of putting on some more mass pre-surgery.
Thanks in advance for any advice you might be able to provide.
