    This is a place where the emphasis is on supporting vegetarian and/or vegan styles of eating in terms of bariatric surgery and nutrients.

  5. Recipe Sharing

    The sub-forums here are for sharing recipes. There are two different main sections: diet phase and special diet needs. Note that in most cases, a higher diet phase allows foods from lower phases (you can have a full liquid even if you are on solids), so put the recipe in the minimum phase where it can be eaten.

      I am new to bariatric pal and find it a bit overwhelmed .... where to start? I’m deciding between gastric sleeve and gastric bypass, have fatty liver, hyperaldosteronism, hypertension, sleep apnea... I hope to decide this fairly soon and get my  surgery scheduled. Glad to be here and getting around a bit. I a 279 and have about 120 lbs to lose as I’m 5’ 7”. Thanks for listening!

      1. The 56 Bypass

        Welcome. Just keep coming back and posting. You'll figure it out. 🙂 Best wishes on your journey. I started wanting sleeve, but because of a hiatal hernia, had to get bypass. I've absolutely no regrets.

      The scale still isn't liking me but AF is in full force, so I'm trying to cut myself some slack. The cravings for protein are still hard core, which is frustrating. I've re-upped my activity levels, which I think is contributing to my increased hunger, but I'm trying to stay busy and not think about food too much. The first two weeks of this liquid diet went so smoothly, I should have expected to hit a wall, now I just have to push past it. I can do this... I will be an outlier.

        Are you pre or post op?

      I've made sure my video is shorter....this is simply a status update and some NSVs. 🙂 I am going to save a lot of the ancillary talking for my "Can We Talk?" series. By splitting up what I talk about this way, it should keep my videos to about 10 minutes each. Thank you for watching! 🙂

      I had LapBand surgery in 2004. I lost 100 lbs. maintained weight successfully, but I vomit a lot, regurgitate and I have severe acid reflux. If I loosen the band, I don't have the issues, but I gain weight. I have been thinking about revision surgery from LapBand to mini gastric band. I am trying to find out how that would work.

        Many people revise to bypass with much better longterm success. Keep is updated.
