    Hi there, I'm still in Paris. ;0) Wow its hard to remember now lol I stuck with Soup alot. I added Protein shakes for a meal and applesauce. I can check my sheet the dr gave me and see what they had me on here in Paris. I really wasnt on it long, if much at all. They move you to regular food quickly. Bisous, Jodi
  2. You do look great! What are you doing for exercise? I hear yeah about the Protein. I'm doing Protein Bars to help, but in France its hard to find the shakes. I'm going to continue to look for shake products!! 3 months out and down 47 pounds so want to keep it going hehe Cheers, Jodi

    Hi there, If not, I did find that the French give less information. There is a lot of good information on here and I have gone with some of it. I have now lost 16 kilos and feeling great. Chiche is an amazing doctor, I chose the French private clinique to not have to deal with a long delay on repayment for the AHP surgery. I just saw him for my post op. He encouraged me to do the mini bypass or even the bypass, but I chose the sleeve. I would rather get my Vitamins from my food. Many people have success with this. He said was I sure because he feels there are less success rates with this. I just think the sleeve patients lose slower. I didnt want to risk dehyrdation and the bypass there are more risks. He really watches your pain management and the anesthesiologist at least at the private hospital were always there too. Who is yours? I have a hard time finding the shake Protein I want and I need to find another one. Isopure protein is not easy to find, but maybe at a fitness store in Paris. I need to drink these and more Water. The French encourage you to learn to eat real food rather than too many supplemental forms of food. Please feel free to ask me any questions you have. I'm an American here in Paris too and married to a French national. I work at a university in Paris. Cheers, Jodi

    Any March Sleevers?

    March 28th here
  19. Hi there, I have seen some suggest Slimfast shakes, but also read they have too many carbs! Thanks, Jodi
  20. I find it so odd that here in France the nut doesn't ask that I use protein shakes. They are having me eat all real foods. Does the NUTS in the states say you can have protein shakes? Can anyone send me their post op diets? Thanks
