    Dee_1111 got a reaction from Momonanomo in month 9ish post op, down 105 lbs   
    Good for you..sensible thinking..I've never heard of 5:2..I wouldn't do that even if I knew what it was. I have learned and adapted a healthy way of eating and I stick to it. I eat pretty much the same things everyday. I get into trouble when I introduce unfamiliar foods into my staples. for meat its just chicken, turkey bacon, venison (I live in Minnesota..lol) turkey burger, ham, & deli ..quaker oatmeal, Quaker caramel corn flavored rice cakes, Smuckers natural peanut butter, applesause, lots of fruits and every vegetable I can get my hands on..lol..oh and green olives..lots and lots of spices.. I've been maintaining for 4 years. oh yeah, no bread, pasta, rice, dairy (surgery made me lactose) and absolutely no sugar. But its maintainable for me. I had to find it. it didn't find me, Im still looking for great foods..

    Wow just reading that so relaxed me..I just wish I could be one of those people. It sounds so enjoyable, like being in a sauna. But alas, I'm that ridged person 'personified' who your talking about. I can not waiver left or right and come back to center. Man, I wish!!!..but for most people this is prob the way to go. Lot less stress, that's for sure..

    HI Domnika..Im Dee, 4 years out: 3/1/2010...remember your body just a MAJOR thing happen it. It's adjusting, what happens to the intestine when its been touched or cut, fall dead like a possium...lol..like one of the fainting goats...lol..it needs time to realize its undamaged and being left alone. Give it time. Your stomach doesn't realize its a pouch yet. Its a newborn baby trying to seen immature signals to the brain. So the brain automatically thinks its hungry, drink hot broth or water. You are NOT hungry, your intestine are still sleep and not ready for solids, that's why we cant eat them. Give your system time to understand whats happen to it. Remember, your innards have no air, so it can not form a scab. It takes a while to heal. It's rest that heals it quickly. Your bowel will wake up on their own time..NO LAXATIVES. who wakes up a sleeping baby?..
