    Nutrition plan for Post hernia surgery?

    Hey guys so im going to have umbilical hernia surgery and wont be able to lift for 6-8 weeks. Now my main concern is preserving muscle and not gaining fat.
    Should i just eat at maintenance and keep protein high? will be using bcaas 2-3x a day as well (is this beneficial?)

    Also, any other recommendations or supplements i could use in order to preserve muscle? Thanks guys!

    Yeah man, just eat at maintenance and don't worry about macros too much. Your body is recovering so you want to make sure that you're eating nutrient rich foods. Not sure about the bcaa's though. I would just eat well balanced meals. FYI I went through my 3rd hernia surgery in January and started working out in march. I've pushing my body every workout and I'm getting stronger everyday still. Hope all is well and your recovery is quick.

    Not too much but I had to work way all the way back to where I was before which took some time. I was really cautious getting back to the gym. It took me about 3 months to really start ramping things up, I just wanted my body to become acclimated to any type of work load. I felt slight discomfort on both sides (2 incisions on my left side and one on my right) but I took it easy and just monitored how I felt. I did get nervous doing squats again and when I felt discomfort I would always check to make sure I was still symmetrical "down there". Today I did a PR on squats and no discomfort at all. You will get there man, just really focus on getting in nutrients for a good steady recovery then babystep it. If you have any questions you can PM me anytime. For me it was really hard trusting my body with any type of real weight for about 3 months after surgery. Slow and steady.

    Just eat normal - if you know your maintenance calories, stay there or slightly above. I had this surgery a few years back and was back to lifting light in about 3-4 weeks. Umbillicals are easy to recover from, inguinal surgery on the other hand will put you out for awhile. Just be sure to ease into it, no heavy squats/pulls, etc -

    Don't worry about supplements other than a multi or whey. A piece of chicken is better than bcaas any day in my book.
