    I just wonder why? At 3 months out, why would you dump extra, empty calories in your body and take the risk of hurting your progress and healing body?
    (It’s rhetorical.)

    AtlantaRed reacted to CalGuy64 in Need encouragement that not everybody gains back all of the weight they lost after gastric sleeve   
    I'm eight months out now. I think I could easily regain the weight I've lost if I don't watch what I eat and/or stop exercising. I can eat most things and its not really that hard to eat around the restriction (i.e. graze). Loosing weight has made it much easier to exercise and easier to be active in general -- but if I want to keep the weight off its on me to take advantage of this.

    AtlantaRed got a reaction from logicwand in How many calories a day should I be eating?   
    I'm getting a bypass after being sleeved 4.5 years. My downfall was eating "normal" but smaller portions. If I couldn't lose weight before surgery eating less, why did i think I could eat normal after the sleeve? I lost 115 and have gained 50. I will be super strict with this one. I will prolong the liquid phase as long as possible, with nutritionist in agreement. Three Premier Protein chocolate shakes and 2 Premier Protein Clear will meet calorie, Fluid, and protein requirements.
    My practice's plan is 700-800 calories daily for life.
    My portions are still correct and I don't snack. I dont eat and drink at the same time. I haven't had soda since before surgery. I'm just not someone who can lose weight by simply eating less. I won't even be trying to find out if I'm someone who will experience dumping, I will assume I will!

    Why? You know what it tastes like, you've had a lifetime of it. It's supposed to be about changing habits, not solely losing weight and not trying to figure out how to eat around the surgery.

    Usually low fat means higher sugar. Most recent studies advocate high fat, high Protein, low carb. I cook for my family, I just eat the meat. I cook up a whole broccoli or whole cabbage and have that as my own vegetable. Keep individual meat patties and individual pieces frozen chicken then whatever vegetable you made for yourself. You could cook a pack of patties or chicken all at once and veggie, then heat up portions for yourself.

    AtlantaRed got a reaction from Frustr8 in Eggdrop Soup, better than broth.   
    Egg is usually a soft food not a solid...unless hard boiled, guess.
    Those not liking broth, have you tried Better Than Bouillon? It's very good. A can of cooking broth isn't. I also like the clear Soup from the Japanese restaurant.

    That will be a year out from surgery but not a year out from your goal weight. They want to know you will be maintaining a stable weight for at least a year.

    I work at a hospital and some insurance companies will not cover your stay if you sign out against medical advice.

    AtlantaRed got a reaction from IveGotThePower in How do you, personally, define a carb?   
    If you're counting carbs, a carb is a carb. I wouldn't eat anything on your list. If you just had to have something, look on Pinterest for Keto bread, keto pizza, meatza. Find low carb marinara on Amazon as well as almond flour and xantham or guar gum for thickening, etc.

    Newer studies show fat is good. I am a medical transcriber for several different hospitals in different areas. Plenty recommend high Protein, high fat, low carb. Do searches for low fat myths and/or cholesterol. They've also found that eating cholesterol doesn't cause high cholesterol.
    To reduce the carbs in fried chicken, you could use almond flour and maybe crushed Pork rinds.

    I think it is recommended to exercise 30 minutes a day 5 times a week. It doesn't sound like you are getting enough exercise. Plenty of parks have exercise-type equipment incorporated in them. You can look up exercises that use your own body weight for strength training so you don't have to go to a gym.

    I would have taken as a compliment. Several of the found nurses I work with have been surprised that I am having it because they don't think I look that big. I'm 100 pounds overweight .
