    really not losing weight rapidly

    Hmmmmm, I'm not a fitness coach, but do you think you are working out too much? If you are not able to eat many calories, and then these long walks and work outs, you will stall some. I am sure you already know muscle weighs more than fat, so there is that as well. You may be building muscle, so do not see a decrease in the scale. Do your clothes fit more loosely? Maybe that could be a victory to keep positive and help up your mood. Best regards Di
  3. Congratulations! Isn't wonderful to see those numbers do down! Kept up the good work!

    Good post James. Something else to consider.

    No, I wasn't discrediting the article. ( my actual wording was, "I am leery") That is not a discredit the study. I'm just saying there is a possibility there may be ulterior motives for these types of studies.

    Exactly what I was getting at Jess9395. Follow the money, because it's always about the money.

    Hi James, no offense was taken. However, it was very kind of you to explain your comment. Kind regards, Di

    Oh, I readthe article.
  9. My favorite website ( besides this one) is DietDoctor.com wonderful Keto recipes and educational videos. I think you can search the recipes for free. I love the educational videos, so I pay the $9.00 monthly fee. If you like the site, you can get a free month, binge on the videos, then quit after your free month.

    Not tolerating Protein supplements

    I had this problem as well. I couldn't keep any of them down. My Dr. had me just try milk, if I could keep that down, then try Carnation Instant Breakfast for some added protein. So that is what I drank until I could have puréed foods. I know Carnation Instant isn't healthy, ( and so did my Dr. but he wanted me drinking whatever I would not vomit up) but it worked for me. I found the Bariatric Pal Hot Cocoa with Marshmellows to be simply delish! Those have 15 grams of protein and very low sugar and carbs. The peach tea is good and the mango fruit drink. They all have 15 grams of protein. I got those for summer, however, I just love drinking the hot cocoa anytime. It is my new healthy comfort food.

    I am very leery of these types of articles. I bet if we really research this article, we may find that the artificial sweetener companies were somehow involved and or paid for this so called research. Nope, I'm not buying it. However, just because I do not partake in artificial sweeteners, does not mean I judge anyone who does. We all have to do what is best for our weight loss and what works for us.

    Ice water

    I drank ice water right away. Slowly, but I drank it.

    Congratulations! I'm glad you're home.
  14. Same here. Still not hungry. Enjoy my water. My Doctor does not want me to drink my protein, but I do enjoy my bariatric pal hot chocolate.
  15. Hi everyone! I had RNY October 10th 2017. I'm doing very well. I am trying to eat low carb and under 1000 calories a day. I am also doing intermittent fasting for health reasons. I journal everyday. That really seems to keep me in check. Glad to see everyone here. Di

    Pre-Op Jitters

    Hi, I had my RNY October 10, 2017. I guess the worst part for me was the Boost for 2 weeks after. Other than that, I have no complaints. Good luck!!! Di Sent from my SM-G930V using BariatricPal mobile app

    New guy to the forum

    Hello and welcome! I too was afraid to do the surgery because I love to eat as well. Also like you, I'm a big Kamado fan! But at weighing in over 320 pounds and high blood pressure I decided I had played Russian Roulette with my health long enough. I started the program in January 2017 and had my surgery October 10th 2017. The first 6 to 8 weeks after surgery were the toughest. Not because I was hungry, but I was just tired of shakes and soups. I really never even thought of food, I just ate because I had too. A few months after surgery , you will be able to use your Big Green Egg again. You can even have a glass of wine. I am a huge beer fan. I live in a state that is huge in brewery's. I will say I miss beer, but I love feeling better, stronger and yes, thinner. I do notice my skin is more loose, but you know, If I need to have surgery at some point, I can cross that bridge when the time I see right. Please feel free to ask any questions or voice your concerns. Di

  21. Hello, I was wondering if you have done a little research on eating keto and lowering blood sugars. I really like the Dr. that started Dietdoctor.com. there is great information and videos. To see the videos, you do need to purchase a subscription at 9.00 dollars a month. However, you can do a one month free trial, just put in your phone the date you started, so you can cancel before you are charged. I kept the subscription because I find the videos informative. BTW, you can get the recipes free of charge. He doesn't charge for those. Good luck on your journey. PS. I had to find a Dr. that agreed to this lifestyle . You are eating whole fresh non packaged foods but still some Drs. do not agree. I do drink the bariatric hot chocolate however. It's my sinful pleasure, but low carb.

  22. I agree with other posters. Please find another Doctor until you find one that will support you. Good luck in your search. Di
