    How many calories do you eat in a day?

    I dont really count all the time. I mostly measure, but I probably get about 1000-1100 a day. You need calories to burn calories. You also need high protein meals.

    Not sure what is going on

    Please remember that everyone is different. I know people that haven't had fills and don't have to be as strict on chewing and are losing way faster then me and I know the opposites. Unfortunately we all have to figure out what is right.

  9. If you are concerned at all you shoul feel comfortable calling the doctor. Even advice from here is not always right. Doctor always comes first on this journey.

    stayin pretty

    Weight loss can be slower in the beging because you are healing. The band does not make you lose weight. Its calories in verses calories burned. Make sure you are measuring and tracking everything you eat. Make sure you are drinking enough water because that definetly plays a part in keeping you satisfied. Make good food choices. High protein solids. Best of luck!!

    tell me about peanut butter

    Natural peanut butter with nothing added is 200 calories for 2 tbls. It has protein but I would not consider it a lot. I was eating it but decided I was not willing to use those calories. I mix a lot of different raw and sprouted nuts and mix in my yogurt or have for a snack but not every day. I saw somewhere. That sunflower seed butter is healthiest. When I want peanut butter I mix pb2 with a little almond milk, sweetener or little honey, and dash of salt.

    You are lucky to have a second change. I wish you the best of luck. You may want to see if you can find anything on line about Carnie Wilson. She did same thing not too long ago.
