Food Intolerances

TMI...the only good thing I found about lactose intolerance was it was really easy to resolve a bout of constiptation! Chug a glass of milk or some ice cream!

Not for me - Ice cream won't even stay down for more than 10 minutes ... and the intestinal pains I get from milk are enough to think you need to go to the ER. I'll stick with magnesium, prunes, prune juice, pear juice or a small salad thanks!:biggrin0:

Hi Folks,

I already dont do dairy and was actually wondering if people had any non-dairy Protein shake recommendations. I know about the fruit Isopure which hopefully I will like, but I was also hoping for a chocolate or vanilla option or some other thicker flavored thing for those times when you really need something a bit toothsome. The comments about hot food scare me though! Yikes, I LOVE my spicy food!

I eat spicy food all of the time with zero negative effects. I have only had what I call "breakthrough" heartburn a couple of times, and it was after eating mustard with some pretzels. The mustard wasn't spicy, but it's the only thing recently that I can't tolerate.

I can eat jalepenos, hot sauce, and spicy/cajun flavored foods.

PHEW! I was having second thoughts there for a second! ( not really, but I am relieved :001_tongue: ) Being Indian, if I couldnt eat spicy food, there would be a biiiig problem.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
