    I don't think I ever really did. I'm not sure when it happened but rice or pasta forced it's way into every meal. Prior to WLS, at parties and potlucks I would turn down the coveted baked macaroni and cheese. There were lots of side eyes but also lots of people willing to divide the spoils 😜

    French Toast (Zero carb bread style) Really AMAZING. I haven't made french toast for myself in more than 2yrs. Everything was spot on. I'm very satisfied & absolutely none left *Only things missing from log was cinnamon and sugar free hazelnut syrup but both are 0 cals

    That pic is just terrible 😂 It's a ramen bowl (even though I don't eat noodles) the slots are for chopsticks Since I ate the same thing today, I have better pics (hand for size comparison)

    Why Isn't Surgery More Common?

    The number of WLS are trending upward! https://asmbs.org/resources/estimate-of-bariatric-surgery-numbers I believe a lot of people do it but in private and you won't hear about it because there is still stigma attached to obesity moral falling or character flaw.

    Another low net carb sandwich This time everything was measured accurately. I realized a long time ago that I don't have the patience to log. This is still true 🤣

  18. Putting the Telogen Effluvium hair loss research I used in a thread for the interested. Started researching this after a visit to my dermatologist confirmed, biotin and minoxidil would not help much. I believe I started taking LLysine as soon as I was allowed to swallow pills post op. I experienced very very minimal hair loss (slight thinning of edges) My hair is back to normal now 1yr post op (Noteworthy info: I practiced low manipulation of my hair for months (ballerina bun), my iron ferritin and other vitamins and minerals were perfect during this time because I received iv infusions and oral supplementation, protein was around 45g daily when I started and worked up to 60g daily) I would suggest consulting your teams, doing your own research, spending the least, understanding that genetics and environmental factors will also play a role despite best efforts, and getting an amazing silk/satin scarf or pillow case to protect what you have. Safe Journey! https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1046/j.1365-2230.2002.01076.x Lysine and Iron (you may have to purchase access, mine has lapsed) https://link.springer.com/article/10.1381/096089296765557295 zinc study http://www.hpbiotin.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/beslenme-ve-sac.pdf LLysine and Iron study http://journals.tubitak.gov.tr/medical/issues/sag-11-41-5/sag-41-5-10-1005-853.pdf vit D study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3819075/#b14-tlsr-21-2-91 Tocotrienol (Vit E family) study

    I think they are just called deep fryers. I hate deep frying... It takes too much work and resources. I deep fried food for a friends party about a year in & knew I would never do it for myself/family unless there was no other way. I think my problem is high fat/high carb or the amount/type of oil for me. Last September at a fair I tried a deep fried oreo at the request of my kids and wished I didn't 🤮 Everyone seems to love Instapot, but I have not tried it

    Impromptu date night at Olive Garden -Don't judge me... it was only thing we could find open in the area (after we needed to make an Aldi's run) 😂 Ok I literally always get the same thing - Tiramisu. I don't bother to order a meal anymore because they are too big so I just poach off others. I started with salad and one medallion of eggplant Parmesan with a small piece of bread stick (went surprisingly ok) & Tiramisu after (finished the rest at home)

    The curied salmon pate was prepped like tuna or chicken salad, so nothing was fried for that recipe BUT You may be surprised to find that different bariatric plans (under different bariatric team supervision) allow for different food standards. Also individual tolerance will account for what can/can't be eaten. On my plan and with my tolerance, I can have some fried foods. I for a long time I have stuck with pan, oven & convection fried vs deep fried as matter of preference because I rather not waste oil for no added value. I'm sure many others like @sillykitty @summerset @MarvelGirl25 @ms.sss @Sophie7713 @Cheeseburgh will be able to give you their perspectives too ❤️
