    Protein shakes

    I like Body Fortress. They look like laundry pods! You can throw them in the blender with some almond milk and have a decent shake.
  2. Aint no thang! They just want your money, I had a 3 day long food funeral when I was a week out. No one will know. Just dont do it again lol

    Protein suggestions

    Vanilla protein tastes pretty gross anyway. Try the chocolate flavors. (Just a suggestion).

    same here 11 months out and I can eat a horse
  6. Low sodium "cream of whatever" soups blended with almond milk. V 8 Juice was always a good go to as well.
  7. 11 months out .. Dropped 80 in 3 months and havent lost or gained a pond since. It is my fault. I eat pretty much the same as I did pre surgery, but not as much. I Also I cut soda and alcohol (for the most part.) My appetite returned to full blast after month 3. I can eat a whole pizza without blinking an eye and very little side effects, I do not make a habit of this however,

    try a little and see how you tolerate it. Everyone is different. But the short answer is no. You are a month out, so it probably wont kill you. I was eating pizza 3 weeks out. Remember everything in moderation

    Alcohol 😳

    soda water..... Oh, and you asked a very open ended question 😋 The soda thing varies from Dr to Dr. I am 10 months out and dink it on occasion with no complications. But, everyone's body is different, I would not drink it until you are a few months out in order to let your body heal.

    Turkey neck

    worry about you health benefits instead of vanity. You look great, I have the same thing and too ashamed to post pics,
  22. Motivation for me is getting on Facebook( I know ...no one uses it anymore) and looking at all of my old pics and my hot friends when I am about to order that Dominos Pizza, That kicks the craving right then, I dont measure.... I just use mind over matter. What scares me now, is the fact that I can eat a whole pizza and not blink an eye.
  23. I had the same thing,,, mine was caused by being able to sleep in new positions
  24. Hanging in there bro,,,Looking good
