Get your Protein in. I know it is EXTREMELY hard to get in all of the protein, especially in the beginning stages but it will curb that feeling and give you more energy.

Just do your best these first days. You and your new stomach are on a new adventure. Try and get all or as much Protein in as you can. Anything above this a bonus at this point. Movement and a positive attitude will help you through this. Well wishes.

I was the same. Warm Decaf tea was easier to drink. Protein was hard. Once I was able to have food, that hunger was gone.

PPI. or Protein Shake. It will get better- I swear! 2 months out and my head hunger has gone away almost entirely. Just be strong! Or- try drinking some G2 or something different than what you have been drinking? maybe change things up?

My surgeon did not have us start Protein until the second week. Try frequent small amounts of your liquid diet.< /p>

No, proton pump inhibitor . Prevacid, etc. Acid can be misunderstood as hunger.

It's a proton pump inhibitor- think Prevacid, nexium, Prilosec.

Is it weird that I am 2 weeks out and don't feel hunger? I am eating and drinking out of habit and knowing that I need to but I never feel "hungry" like before surgery. I crave the taste of different foods but I know that's in my head. I thought maybe it was normal but I've now seen 2 posts in the past couple days of people claiming they are starving on the liquid diet.< /p>

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
