  1. Hopefully everyone is doing well! ❤️ I finally started exploring collagen supplements. I using an unflavored powder in drinks and so far no tolerance issues. Anyone else taking a separate collagen supplement? Recommendations?
  2. Like weight loss before and after photos but of your new diet ! I'm especially interested in before and after meal photos (take a pic at the point you feel restriction) but it can be of recipe substitutions, your refrigerator/pantry/shopping cart/etc VSG2017 HW 249 SW 238 CW 167

    One last bake session for the year Apple Pie (full sugar so no macros sorry) made with an oil crust I doubt I’ll eat any of it. And it was vegan right up to the point I put an egg wash on 😩

    8mths post-op issues?

    Yes! This has happened to me also. For me it was usually after a procedure, when the seasons changed (too hot to eat) or just not really hungry. But your nausea maybe a sign something else is going on like food intolerance or stomach bug. I would reach out to my team if it lasts longer than normal.

    restarting food diary

    My plan required: 64+ oz of sugar free fluids (mostly water) 60 or more grams of protein 30 or less grams of carbohydrates (depending on the sources e.g. vegetables vs grains) with less that 15 from added sugar 20 or less grams of fat (depending on the sources e.g. cheese vs oils)

    Help please

    Are you able to drink any protein shakes/broth/water? That might help a lot.

    Food Before and After Photos

    I’m right there with you! I don’t think my sweet tooth truly ever went away but dumping curtails many shenanigans. But I also go through food phases. I’ll love something for 2 months then never want to see it again. 😂 I tend to share all desserts with others or “buffer” dessert with a vegetable intensive or low calorie meal. Honestly it does as much for me mentally as calorically. I need chocolate on a monthly basis. Let me know if you find a solution!

    GERD after nearly 3 years!!

    GERD after VSG is a possible outcome, but it doesn’t effect everyone. Don’t be alarmed, your team will know what to do. Once it’s confirmed to be GERD and not something else (like diet, etc) your team may suggest using PPI’s again and dietary changes.

    Weird drunk-ish reaction to food

    This *might* be the famed food coma. Early post op, food tolerances can be unpredictable. Is this happening after everything you eat or only certain things? Also let your team know is it persists/becomes more frequent.

    Nice jacket (I vote we call it “Vegan Friendly Leather”😉)
  21. What a fantastic turn of events! Congratulations
  22. My revision was for GERD not regain so I can’t speak to that, sorry. What I have heard is that the weight loss from VSG to RNY can be slower and lower but every body reacts differently. I initially lost about 10/12 lbs but I have bounced back into my pre surgery range (I was already at my goal) I am happy to say that the symptoms of GERD have not come back so I’m very happy about that.

    One Year Out, Looking For Advice

    You may have to wean yourself off the fun foods until you feel better about having them. If you are eating chips, try to take 1/4 the amount you are eating now and substitute the rest with vegetables that have the same umami (I never thought I would get to use that word 😂) or similar texture. Sweets are a little bit harder to substitute but perhaps try fruit because if the natural sugar vs something artificial until you can wean off completely.
