Do you pay it all up front, can you make payments? is i safe? How do you find someone to do it? and can you fly right after release?

    I have learned a lot from Dr. V while I don't agree with everything He says though. Do you have any suggestions on people (motivational self help speakers) to listen too, I am looking into branching out, and like to listen while I am getting in my fitness.

    lean muscle mass building

    As I said the weight thing was a theory I heard because of giving your body time to heal properly and letting you get your eating and mind on track, as weight lifting can cause you to feel more hungrier and need a little more calories taken in. It was a time to work on your brain and let your body heal.

    lean muscle mass building

    also I tried one of Dr.v theories on the gym and it worked. He said fittness is great but workouts is not great for weight loss, as it builds muscle. He said if you go to the gym for working out your weight loss will be sabotaged by the muscle gain, So I tried not going for 2 months and guess what? My 2 to 4 lbs a week continued. also stay away from bad carbs, processed food, and sugar. I never experienced stalls I just quit loosing, but some of the people in my support group do experience them for months. I also belong to a facebook group called kpbariatric a lot of people in there r kaiser patients, but they don't have to be it is not kaiser affiliated, you can get a lot of good info and support, it's a great group.

I also follow DR. Duc Vuong on facebook and youtube, He has a lot of good information, but he does use a lot of foul language too. I was 210 at surgery 230 highest weight and now one year out 122 I have been holding there since month 8 out. I go to gym 3 times a week mon 30 min stair climber wed 30 min treadmill fast and raised up a bit fri split 15 stair 15 treadmill. now that I am a year Im going to add yoga n weights on tues n thurs.

    lean muscle mass building

    too much too soon. cardio till your a year out than go to weights. Just remember muscle weighs more than fat, so instead of the scale look at pic of yourself (side by sides) see the diff in pics n fit of clothes
