    Thank you! Well... just doing what I know works. For me that’s avoiding simple/refined carbs, learning the difference between eating because I’m hungry and eating because I’m angry/hurt/frustrated, and staying active. I run 20+ miles a week and do a lot of yoga. I’m lucky in that my restriction is still great and I never really got the hungries back like I did before once I got my acid under control post op.

    We went out to Breakfast for my mother in law’s birthday this am. I did what I often do at restaurants and just got an extra plate and people shared with me. Half a scrambled egg... quarter of a slice whole wheat toast, a bite of hash browns and smoked tri tip (the piece was maybe 2-3oz... this place has incredible smoked tri tip). You can see I are maybe a third of the carb servings and 2/3 of the Protein.
    This time my 15 year old didn’t finish it though because he had a HUGE breakfast burrito that he couldn’t even finish.

    I still have trouble gauging how much to serve myself even at five years out. Especially when I am eating things I don’t often eat (in this case quinoa and corn). They filled me up more quickly.

    This is ancient grains and sautéed onions (about half and half) with leftover tri tip that I braised in red wine and wosterchire on top and then topped with a little bit of corn and green onions and cilantro. My fifteen year old ate what I didn’t. I added some power greens slaw on the side optimistically but didn’t eat any so cropped them out of the pic.

    I will eat the slaw tomorrow for lunch.

    Container dannon light and fit Greek yogurt with 1 tsp slivered almonds, 1 tsp unsweetened coconut and 1/2 tsp cocoa nibs. Sometimes I get full 2/3 of the way through. This morning I ate the whole thing.

    In general now that I’m in maintenance the Protein in any meal has to be higher than the carbs. And in general I try not to drink my carbs. During the loss phase it was more like a 4:1 or even 5:1 ratio protein to carbs. I ate very little carbs and they were mostly from
    dairy and green veggies.

    My surgeon has a low carb plan.

    90% of the time, yeah. Apples and cheese, celery and Peanut Butter, berries or peaches on yogurt, melon with nuts and cottage cheese or ricotta. When I don’t it’s because I’m running (literally, like 6+ miles, I don’t do it with shorter runs) and it’s quick fuel.   During the loss phase I didn’t eat fruit at all unless it was when I was running. 

    I mean veggies if they are low carb ones (ie not potatoes, corn or peas) then it’s not as big a deal, because they have a low glycemic index and Fiber (I do net carbs not total carbs so subtract the fiber) so like at a party I will sometimes snack on raw veggies.

    Got it. Oh I know there aren’t many carbs in the almond milk, it’s just the ratio.... if I do a smoothie it has to be more than half protein otherwise I just can’t justify it for myself, the carbs exceeding the protein makes me hungrier! I could put a scoop of Protein Powder in or do dairy milk and then it would work for me.

    I still have trouble getting protein in from just food some days. But drinks in general I can’t do unless they are more protein based.

    Think about trying to break the movie = food association. It’s mindless snacking we don’t need. You aren’t even enjoying the food experience.

    We can make it through 2-3 hours without eating.

    You need to readjust your posture! We’ve developed a way to sit based on our body shape and as it changes we need to adjust. My Physical Therapist worked on this with me. You need to reclaim the curvature of the lumbar spine and basically sit on the backs of your thighs (your “sitz” bones as my yoga teacher says) instead of your tailbone. Good posture doesn’t involve sitting on the tailbone.

    This will be my five year annual visit. My surgeon asks we go annually forever for follow up and I intend to do just that.

    Why? Blood work for nutritional issues. Accountability. Support and tweaking if necessary.

    Protein Mug Cake. One scoop Protein Powder (works best with one that has egg protein or caesin as part of it not just whey isolate), 1tsp milk and 1/4 tsp baking powder in the microwave for 1 min. Ate it in about 20 mins.

    No but you said one needed carbs and the OP was asking about bread/rolls/tortillas specifically.

    You also suggested you got your fiber from toast.

    So I was elaborating for the sake of the OP so she didn't get the idea she needed the carbs she asked about and to help her understand toast wasn't a good way to get fiber in her diet.

    You do you! I'm just replying to her!

    Homemade chicken no-noodle Soup. I make it with lots of sautéed onions and mushrooms. Then I add in Pasta noodles in my husband and son’s bowls and pour the soup on top and leave them out of mine.
