  1. I've seen a lot of things saying not to drink with meals. The reasoning I've seen is to avoid making you full on water, so you can finish your meal. If you're not having a problem in finishing your meal is there any down to a small amount of drinking while eating? (I don't mean chugging, closer to sipping water occasionally.)
  2. I'm about 3 weeks out from surgery, in the post-op phase. A lot of guidance I've seen has been around "stop when full", or ask try to understand when you're hungry (and not just "head hungry"). Has anyone else found it a bit hard to tell if you're "feeling" hungry or full? I'm wondering if it's just me...
  3. I had my sleeve on 8/16. I'm a male, 6'6", and on that day I weighted 387. Today (8/25), I'm at 362. I'm obviously happy with the progress, but I'm battling lightheadness and I think it's related to lack of protein. (If I drink half a shake or so, it clears up a bit later.) I had the procedure done at UCLA & the post-op guidance was 80-100 grams of protein as tolerated, and 64oz of water. This past week I haven't had any issue with either. In fact, I'm wondering if I should increase my protein intake to combat the lightheadness?
  4. I just wanted to say thank you for all the suggestions. I think as my body adjusts, it's gotten better, but I also started to mix in a Gatorade Zero in the morning & that seemed to help.
