    Loosing my hair like crazy.....I started to loosing my hair post Menopause about two years ago so I have been taking two biotin nutrients a day plus Purador hair loss shampoo. My nutritionist also informed to to also start taking collagen pepitides powder daily. Still my hair is falling out crazy amounts. It’s not from a lack of protein I’m eating plenty of that. Does anybody know how long the hair loss continues or here is a better question when does it grow back?!!

    Most of the time when I eat now my stomach makes a lot of noise. It’s embarrassing as others can hear it too 😞. I talked to my surgeon about this on my 3 month check up and he stated that noise is from air being in my stomach but I don’t know how that is possible. My stomach never made any noises prior to my surgery
  3. Hi everyone! Just to let you all know that I am doing great. Down 35 lbs since my surgery on 10/26 and counting. Was frustrated and I had some regrets about my surgery just because Of the stalls I was having that’s all! And guess what people I did eat ONE slice of pizza and had no stomach issues!! All of you judge mental people are just so ridiculous. I am happy and proud of my weight loss journey and that all that matters.

    I am starting to regret that I had this surgery. My surgery dates was 10/26 and to date I have lost 28lbs which includes the two week pre diet. I had a stall which lasted 2 and 1/2 weeks and then I started losing weight again only to hit another stall now. That being said I have only lost 6lbs this entire month. I could of just done any regular diet and probably would have lost more weight than having this surgery. Feeling so Disheartened and depressed. I started to increase my calorie intake to about 600-700 per my nutritionist and I am walking 2 miles a day. I feel like a freak and don’t know what I am doing wrong.

    Weight Stall Venting

    Hang in there i know the feeling. My stall lasted 2.5 weeks...I thought i was losing my mind as i had the same thoughts as you. The scale is FINALLY moving. I am putting it away and will only weigh myself every two weeks. The scale is an evil thing!!!

    Thanks br3n! You made me feel better. I thought i would have this surgery and the weight would just fall off. Not the case...but I am down 2 sizes and i will start to take measurements. The scale is an evil thing! LOL

    My surgeon stated that there are too many carbs in dairy. I just started having some meats and they are not digesting very well with me. I am shocked that so many doctors have such different diets post surgery. I am not in agreement with my doctor regarding nothing but protein and only 3 meals a day so I am going to listen to what my body is telling me. How can i eat only meat when i am still having such a problem digesting it?

    I just came back from my one month checkup with my surgeon. He informed me not to have any carbs just protein and to eat only 3 meals a day. I don't think that is right for me as i still can only tolerate about 2 ounces a food at a time and I don't think 6 ounces a food a day is good for my system. I will still continue to eat 5 small meals a day. He did state for me to still have eggs and vegetables, just no bread or pasta. He also informed me that i was having too much dairy in my diet (i.e. protein drinks, yogurt, lowfat cottage cheese).

    OK my stall has been two weeks now. I tried and increased my calorie intake and that still has not worked. Feeling I made the wrong decision with this surgery. Has anyone else have a stall for this long?

    I had my VGS surgery on 10/26. I have not lost any weight for 13 days. I am just starting soft foods and I try to eat between 5-6 meals a day and I have about 2 oz at each meal. Am I eating too much?

    You are not alone. I had my surgery on 10/26 and I am having the same issues. I feel like a volcano and I have been on Dexilant (anti heartburn medication) for years and its not working now.

    Team, I ordered this great barbaric cookbook off Amazon. Each recipe shows which of the four phases we can eat: F-Full liquid, P-Puree, S-Soft Food, G-General Diet. There are other barbaric cookbooks on Amazon but they include bread/rice which we cannot have on this diet. Great recipes and pictures, What to toss from your pantry and what to stock up on. Lots of helpful information, i learned a lot. !
