    jaminator got a reaction from TakingABreak in I tried a diet coke today...   
    HAHA! I was walking around Berlin a few years ago checking out the sights, and i stopped at a small convenience mart near the city center and ask for a bottle of water. The lady behind the window asked me if i wanted "still" or "fizzy" (I think it was fizzy). I couldnt really understand because of the accent.
    She could obviously tell I was a dumb American who didnt understand, so then she said "You vant zee bubbles or not zee bubbles".
    I said OOHHHHHHHH!!! No bubbles please!

    Eh... i asked my surgeon about alcohol and carbonation post op and she told me you have to live your life. If you think you will never have anything sinful you’re just setting yourself up for failure. She also said carbonation is fine for some and hard to tolerate for others, but it’s not harmful to your pouch. She said there is a lot of misinformation out there on the topic, many times used as scare tactics to keep people from drinking full sugar soda.

    Don’t sweat it. I’m a year and 4 months out and I can eat whatever I want, just significantly less than before.
    Drink your Water and do the work and slowly you’ll be able to eat something besides the bland first few stages.
    But it does suck for the first three months.

    So yay! I thought this was a judgement free site. Silly me for thinking I wasn’t going to get condescending comments. If you were actually paying attention I am actually one pound below my goal. But thanks for your input

    Try sprouts veggie chocolate Protein with skim milk and crushed ice in a blender, (or Orgain or vega protein)

    Not so cloyingly ssweet and that combo can get you 30-40g per pop. Sometime i mix cold brew coffee in too.
