  1. I have never even heard of this. I have always sipped with my meals, simply because it keeps my food from getting stuck! I have never had an issue with it.

    No weight loss?

    Protein can make you gain weight in the form of muscle. I only consumed 15-20 grams per day after my surgery. I simply could not eat as much as they required. Still can't and it worked wonders for me. I'm glad i listened to my body and not the doctors on this one!
  3. Oh WOW! I can't believe you even wanted to try meat. I didn't attempt any type of meat for almost a year as it still to this day (8 years later) does that exact same thing to me. I know this pain all too well and still experience it if I try to eat more than a bite or 2 of meat. I was on Protein as well for the 1st year, but mainly in the form of shakes or puree. The pain is just not worth it to even attempt to eat it anymore. I'm sorry you went through this and I would love to tell you that it's over, but more than likely, you will have this throughout your life with "hard to digest" foods. Mostly meats and heavy carbs. I don't touch bread, pasta or anything like that because when it becomes "stuck" I feel like I'm gonna die.
  4. Me neither but you may wanna research that sugars feed cancer way more that Protein.
  5. Trust me, I'm not looking for the Dietary police! But I hardly get any protein in because of my surgery. I do however choose to cut out carbs and stick to healthy amounts of protein and fat.
  6. OK guys!!!! I started Keto 2 weeks ago and would love to have a forum of just Fellow Ketoers!! We can trade recipes, stories, question, concerns etc. Keto stuff is all over the internet...but nothing about doing it after WLS. I use My Fitness Pal to track all food/drink, calories, carbs, fats. I currently stay until 12g carbs per day, 60g Proteinand 27g fat. I use Ketostix every morning to make sure I stay in Ketosis ( usually a 4) but I don't feel I'm losing quick enough. What is your experience so far with Keto and your daily intake of foods? It's just so hard for me to get in enough calories and protein.

    On cloud nine.."bread"

    So is this "bread" baked or eaten raw? Don't see anywhere in the instructions listed to bake it.
  9. I am 8 years Post-Op and I get extremely tired anytime I eat protein. I have never done the shakes because none of them agreed with me. I simply don't know what causes this and I have just gotten used to it at this point. I get my protein from veggies now as I have never been able to handle any type of meat without it getting stuck and causing extreme pain. It is just now worth the pain. I have had every scan and test to see if there was a blockage but nothing shows up. Baffling...
  10. OMG! 120g of Carbs per day??? Are you sure?? How would that even be possible?
  11. Can someone please tell me how I am suppose to be calculating my carbs? I know all the basics, use the MyFitnessPal app to track my calories, nutrients, etc and I am sticking to the Normal recommendation of but how can I already have 15g of Carbs from one healthy salad and dressing only containing the ingredients of what I'm suppose to have??? 25g of Total Net Carbs--- Fat: 96g ---- Protein:72g So, Here is what my tracker has for the only meal I had yesterday and it just doesn't seem accurate to me. Please tell me what I am doing wrong.

    Before and After pic

    No, I don't have any loose skin, thank goodness. I did not have any type of corrective surgery after my bypass. Just ate like I was suppose to and tried to stay active. My BS said that it all depends on how long your skin had been stretched out while being fat before surgery and your age. I was 36 when i had my surgery and had been overweight for roughly 8 years but I never had a belly or folds. Carried my weight in my boobs and my hips.

  14. "Normal" when naked?? What constitutes "normal" nowadays?? Many naysayers still give us WLS people a hard time saying we took the "easy way out". We all know it is anything but easy. With hard work, dedication and a positive mindset, these ladies will acheive what they set out to do. I have faith in them.
