So, I tried posting in the Powerful Women forum, but unfortunately there weren’t any members with answers there (understandably so), so I thought I’d try here.
I had gastric bypass (specifically roux-en-y) in April 2017. I’m down over 100lbs, and I’ve decided to start lifting because I’m becoming skinny-fat, and frankly I don’t like it. On top of that, I have PCOS, which means my testosterone levels are higher than most women, so maybe I can see some decent results because of it.
I’m wondering if anyone has any thoughts/suggestions on eating enough to actually gain muscle? My stomach pouch is now about the size of a baseball, while the average stomach is the size of a football. I have no idea how I’m supposed to actually eat enough to build muscle? I eat protein at every meal, and I’m taking my shake every day, but honestly, sometimes there’s just no room to fit more in.
