    Dr. told me No. Fruit has too much sugar.

    Diet soda

    No, I've also given up all carbonated drinks. I haven't had a beer or soda in about 10 months. Honestly I really don't miss them.

    High fats

    I can tolerate mayo and butter in small amounts. The transition to solid foods was pretty seamless for me. I only threw up once when I ate one to many chicken wings.

    Constant heartburn

    I was prescribed omeprazole by my doctor and it looks like it's going to be a "rest of my life" thing.

    What can I eat

    I ate eggs everyday at that point. Scrambled, Hard boiled, omelets, etc. A great source of protein.

    I had decaffeinated in the hospital the day after surgery. I started having one small (8 ounce) cup of regular coffee in the mornings about two weeks out with a splash of sugar free creamer and a pack of Splenda. I'm now 7+ months out now and drink two small cups every morning. I also have the Cafe Latte flavor Premier Protein shake for breakfast most mornings and that also has caffeine in it. I was an crazy coffee drinker before the surgery. Usually 40-60 ounces a day. What I was told is Coffee is a diuretic and right after surgery you can get dehydrated easily. I was just very careful to get enough H2O.
  8. I also have Blue cross PPO and they only required three months where I filled out: How I was exercising, What I ate and how much weight I lost. Then I had to have my doctor sign it. Of course that's on top about 10 different test.

    Protein Shakes

    They are my favorite too. I order mine on costco.com. I think they have them at wallmart.com too.

    Feeling weak/rubber legs

    I agree it's your H2O. I use EnduroPacks Liquid Electrolytes spray in my H2O. I was getting bad leg cramps at night when I was first out of surgery. This knocked them out. It's a small bottle and you put 10 squirts in your water. Good stuff. You can get it on Amazon.

    I GOT A DATE!!!

    Awesome! Good luck, you're almost there.
  12. Well here's the story, I've been doing good but my weight loss has stalled for the past couple of weeks. Pretty consistently staying the same. We had to go out of town for a weekend. So friday I was good until dinner then I ate some BBQ ribs, coleshow, mac and cheese and two margaritas at Applebee's. In the hotel the next morning I ate two danishes for breakfast (basically all sugar and carbs) For lunch we ate at KFC. I had two wings and two biscuits and for dinner that night I eat the 2nd half of my ribs and the other two wings from lunch. Sunday I was afraid to step on the scale, so I didn't and I was good all day Sunday. This morning I got on the scale expecting the worse and WOW! I lost 4.5 pounds! Any Idea what the heck Happened???? Is there a phenomenon I don't know about??? Or Did I just get lucky and dodge a bullet.
  13. It definitely jumped started something I dropped two move pounds this morningCRAZY!
  14. No! Please don't I don't really want to be that guy.
  15. Yes, exactly! Like I said I think I was on a 17 day stall. Crazy!
  16. Yes, That was exactly my thinking. It just shocked the system into starting back up.

    Pureed diet

    I just blended up Soups of all kinds after my sleeve. Light clam Chowder, Turkey chili, Minestrone,, even some jambalaya. If it's totally liquefied it tastes great and does the job!

  19. Yeah I would, I also take a handful everyday and like I mentioned in a earlier post my Dr. was very admit that I crush my pills for the first three months. They even gave me two pill crushers. It was a total drag but I got through it. When I posted on here about it not many people said that was in their instructions. I don't know, I just followed their instructions.
  20. I drink the sugar-free Wyler's Island Punch (Walgreens knock-off of sugar-free Hawaiian punch) everyday. I love the stuff. I even like it better than the original sugar version.
