    I had gout prior to surgery that was controlled and it is worse after. Likely due to the amount of protein I am consuming. Everything post surgery seems to be about balance.

    Protein taste issues

    I use Isopure unflavored, tahitian vanilla and very berry and lemonade. They all taste great. Also the premier protein cafe latte powder is delicious mixed with water and has 30g of protein. Quest protein chips are also tasty.

    Metformin After Surgery

    I am 2 months post surgery today. The day before surgery I stopped taking all of my diabetes medication which consisted of metformin, glimiperide, ozempic and tresiba. I have not taken ANY of them since surgery and my A1c is down from 6.7 to 6.3. My hope is with continued weight loss my A1c will go even lower. My diet is high protein low carb about 600-800 calories per day. I feel better than I have in years.
  4. I bought 2 oz. cups with lids to keep my portions small. I also bought some baby food spoons so I wouldn’t accidentally eat too much at once. It has worked very well for me. Also the unflavored Isopure protein powder for mixing with cold foods like sugar free pudding, etc… Good luck with your journey!

    I almost gave in to the arches….

    You are definitely not alone. Every time I am alone in my car it wants to steer directly to a fast food place. Doesn't matter which one but I steer my brain to the end game instead. It is definitely tempting.

    The Premier Cafe latte has the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee.

    Funny 16 the magic number and the 3 week stall seem to be the norm 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Watching TV makes me hungry!

    You aren't alone! I even had to unlike pages on Facebook because I never realized how many pages I was following that revolved around food. Same with my Pinterest! I find that watching Netflix or Hulu works better for me, no food commercials!

    FDA approves anti obesity drug

    It did control my diabetes very well and I think it is an excellent drug for diabetics. The cost will likely be prohibitive for weight loss. Even with insurance it cost me a lot of money.

    I took Ozempic for diabetes prior to surgery and was not able to lose any weight. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    You need to give it time to work. It may not work until tomorrow.
