    Only advice I can offer is to build good populations of good gut bugs.
    My kiddo is a microbiology major who just went to a lecture on gut microbiota and fecal transplant (yep, this is a thing) and she was telling me that a lot of chronic constipation and diarrhea issues can be related to out of balance gut microbiota.
    How can you improve your gut bugs?
    Eat quality dietary fiber... 30g a day for the gals. More for the guys.
    (obviously, discuss this with your doctor)
    Fiber feeds the most beneficial gut bugs and helps them re-establish healthy populations when they've been wiped out by antibiotics, or dealing with the new conditions of a modified gut.
    Here's a cool list: https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/high-fiber-foods/art-20050948
    Also, try to eat cultured and fermented foods...yogurt, miso, pickles, sauerkraut, kefir, cheeses.
    The key...she says...is not quantity...it's diversity. Don't overdo portions, but mix up the variety a lot.
    Just a little bite of each kind of thing adds up to benefits.

    So I had my first gain! I have been doing great and down 70lbs. Didn’t have a great week so I am not surprised but still upset. Scared its going to keep happening! Feel like I have been needing more food to feel satisfied and have been eating more! Any suggestions to get back on track?

    I’m day 7 post op and soooo tired of liquids. I just want something to chew that has flavor. I should be moving to the liquid diet tomorrow instead of just Clear Liquids.

    I just saw a recipe today. That looked good. Take chicken tenders with a sliver of cheese and wrap in a slice of bacon. Bake at 350 for 13/14 minutes. Can also use a Tomato based dipping sauce if desired.
