    What is wrong with this picture?

    Sorry I'm going to be a contrarian. A mother who is that concerned about what their child eats would have researched what the child would be fed before committing to that camp. Sounds like this woman was looking for advertising for her group that she founded. Personally I think this kind of behavior is what causes eating disorders. Telling a child certain foods are evil and bad is guaranteed to give them food issues.
  2. Yes chobani has more calories but your portion sizes are larger. If you look carefully Chobani has 6 ounces and most of the others are 5.3. I personally have chobani with protein powder mixed in and some granola everyday for breakfast. I guess it depends on whether you're eating yogurt as a snack or as a meal.

    Well I normally eat after my workout, so by 8:00 pm I hungry in general.

    Sick, IDK why?

    Remember your body may be different from someone else's. You may need to be on mushies instead of solids. Personally I would back off solids for a while.

    Yogurt suggestions....

    I think you need to pick your battles. My doctor, nurse and nutritionist said Greek yogurt with fruit was fine. You do after all need fruit and veg in your diet.

    5 incisions??

    Probably needed additional tools to hold back organs/fat. As mentioned above the little incisions are practically invisible in a few months.

    Greek Yogurt

    Are you on mushies day 7? I could not have yogurt until day 15. Greek yogurt is very thick for your pouch st this point.
  11. Please understand I am not being mean spirited. You need to measure your food. My doctor says to weigh 3 oz of Protein and eat low fat/ cal veggies until full. When your allotted protein is gone no seconds. Just because you can eat more doesn't mean you should. This is a diet for now. Also, don't expect restriction at your first fill. Took me about six fills.
  12. Starting week 2 or week 3? Week two I was allowed 1 cup full liquids ie tomato soup and 1 cup in protein shake. Week three was 3 oz soft mushies like yogurt per serving. My doctor goes by weigh rather than volume (cup) for solids.

    How long can you go between meals? How large are your meals. What are you eating. You should expect at restriction to be able to go 4-5 he's before you feel hungry. The band isn't meant to make you never feel hungry.
