  1. Need help struggling with sweet craving and bread carbs. How is everyone getting thru these cravings. Work (retail) schedule is crazy 10 hours days. Around food entire time. So temptations are there . I do make my meals but feel I’m eating to much or not enough. Drinking Water is null and void. Because I just do not like drinking plain water. Need some good tips to get thru and defeat these cravings. Have 10:pounds from goal. Down 60 pounds.

    Yes it is a chore and struggle you had surgery 3 days before me. I’ve set alarms to remind me to eat but sometimes it works . If I’m not hungry I cannot force myself to eat. Good luck It might take some time to get a routine

    Hydration and fueling issue Cycling

    Thanks for info. I actually do Century and a 7 Day 500 mile ride. I did this all at my heaviest weight 305. Never let my size stop me for enjoying riding. I do clip in peddles actually speed plays. I do egg whites I order in half gallon or gallon from international egg whites.com . Most rides I do are support so at every sag stop there is food . It’s the 30 min to drink after eating and riding in the heat is going to be a challenge .

    Aetna

    Doctors went through the medical review board because I had unusual circumstances. I lost weight but was also retaining water. Because I have Chronic Kidney Disease. Had to wait 4 days and it was over the weekend nerve racking. Got approval on Monday surgery was that Thursday
