    Donny got a reaction from Bufflehead in I restarted successfully 1 month ago -25lbs   
    I was the guy that came here studying the forum for stories of how people restarted successfully and never did anything about it. Or very rarely did you find people willing to discuss this because once they were back on track they didn't come back to the forum. So here is my success story so far.
    On September 1st I had had enough of regain and decided it was time to change my bad habits. I had VSG 4 years ago and dropped from 385 to 285 in 9 months. Then I slowly crept back to 335, a 50lb regain!
    So what did I do? I did 3 days of shakes then 4 days of shakes and small portions of chicken. Then I discovered reddit.com/r/keto and started reading. For the last 3 weeks I have been full blown Keto with 5% carbs, 25% Protein, 70% fat on 900-1200 cal per day. I follow intermitant fasting on a 18:6 ratio. And I walk 3-4 miles per day. In one month of have lost 25lbs and only 25 more to my lowest but I won't stop there this time! Before I get yelled at about how horrible this is just do a bit of research. Many people have CURED their diabetes with a keto lifestyle and there is actual science backing all of it.

    It's still there. I learned to eat around it and drink my calories, that's what ruined me. I barely got through 3 eggs and cheese today. Yesterday a double baconator was two meals. It's definitely not what it once was but it still works great. I can chug Water and bubbles don't bother me. Coke zero and La Croix Water are how I satisfy sweet cravings. Studies show when you're in ketosis a multi day fast is beneficial. Between keto and the sleeve I can fast 3-4 days. Now I do have a ton of supplements and did a ton of research before starting. I really struggle to eat more that 900 meaningful/healthy calories per day. But I aim for 1200.

    I agree. I am very strict less than 20g of carbs. A cheat day for me is still under 50g (which is still keto) and I had blood work done two days ago with great results. The only bad marker I had was low HDL but since my LDL and Triglycerides are so low they didn't seem too bothered by it. My nurse was impressed with the numbers since they came from a guy with a 38 BMI. Last night I had a baconator lettuce wrap from Wendy's and today made full egg scrambled eggs with cheese and bacon.

    Hi Lisa,
    Here is a typical day's food under the diet I have followed over the past six months:
    Breakfast
    3 scrambled eggs
    4 pieces of bacon
    1 piece of American cheese (cooked in eggs)
    lunch
    1 Premier Protein chocolate shake
    dinner
    6-8 oz of lean meat (chicken or salmon or occasionally red meat)
    1.5 cups lettuce
    1/3 cup parmesan cheese
    3 T bacon bits
    3 T Olive Garden Italian Dressing
    This comes out in the 1200-1300 calories range depending on the dinner Protein.
    I hope this helps!

    Good job!
    I lost 99 pounds pre-op using a low carb (15-20 per day), high Protein (100-120 grams per day), and high healthy fat diet (approximately 100 grams per day). It was a VERY successful approach for me. I am planning on continuing the low-carb approach as I move through my food stages post-op.

    That is an amazing story. I too love the Keto way of life. Before I decided to do WLS, I purchased some literature on the ketogentic diet. I started following it and had amazing results!! My co workers were like "how can you eat all that fat and loose weight, your going to get heart problems" blah blah blah. I showed them by dropping 30 pounds in 6 weeks! My blood work was perfect!
    Then I fell off the wagon... unfortunately... but didn't we all at some time. When doing this type of diet you cant sneak a cookie here or there. If you cheat... it messes you up for at least a week until that processed junk gets fully out of your system. I know that you know this but hopefully it will help some of the others who read this.
    This diet was developed to help children with ADHD and Seizures. It takes the place of meds for a majority of them!!!! How great is that. Just goes to show that our FDA had been wrong all along. I am a full supporter of the ketogenic diet and I hear a lot of people talking about ketosis on here but from what I've experienced you cant be fully in ketosis unless you are eating little to no carbs. I had purchased the keto strips and tested it. When your in ketosis its like a euphoria. You feel so good, mind and body.
    I'm happy for you, keep up the good work and positive attitude!
