I love hellmans real mayo but they do have one made with olive oil that's 35 calories per tbsp.

I hate most mayo, so I've made a sandwich spread out of cottage cheese that I've processed smooth in my little 3 cup food processor (a blender works, too). Add a little lemon juice, or garlic, or some herbs & you're good to go. Also, you can drain plain yogurt overnight with some cheesecloth in a strainer. The result is thicker, more like mayo or sour cream.

That's so wrong lol. That's not Mayonnaise, but then again, I did ask for a substitute. I'm from the south where Dukes mayonnaise is a food group of its own lol. I'm just messing with you, my wife LOVES Miracle Whip. I HATE it except in her potato salad.

I can be fine without mayo when used as a spread, although I LOVE it, but as a binder these ideas are great

I am probably going to rile up a bunch of people! I don't use low fat or sugar free anything... never have since day one post-op. I ate ALL sugar free and fat free everything since I was 7 years old and guess what? I ended up 260 pounds. So, I eat the real deal in small portions, I am so much more satisfied and healthy. I have maintained my goal weight for a year and counting. When you are eating such small amounts of things I truly believe real fat is much better than processed, fat removed, sugar added crap. My cholesterol is normal, all my labs are great. Just my opinion!!

I don't do low fat anything. The moderation is key to success. Eating around your sleeve will harm you. Not eating fat free wont in moderation. I've lost 103 lbs in 5 months so the proof is in the pudding!

Funny you mentioned that. My cholesterols, sugars, and sodium levels have always been perfect, and I've always ate what I wanted. Weight and blood pressure.....welllll I guess that's why I'm here haha.

I agree with Sleeve of Steel.. and fyre_storm... i always have regular and the fat free kind in stock.. just that even a teaspoon of regualr mayo/ranch/or anything.. these days.. kinda makes me feel guilty..with all kinds of "what if" questions..

honestly.. I hate low fat/fat free stuff.. i feel like a lab rat when I look at the ingridients list.. :) will have to reason with my guilt.. that is not going to be easy..!

Try Bolthouse Farms yogurt dressing as a mayo substitute. It comes in a lot of flavors and has only 45 calories for 2 tablespoons. It's in the refrigerated section of the produce department.

All I want to use it for is a binder with tuna or chicken, so yogurt with a little seasoning may work

      I weighed 199 pounds (90 kg) this morning! I felt accomplished and happy, and celebrated by going to the gym to lift some weights. Hoping everyone else out there is making progress, whether you are pre- or post-op 😊
      Today is 7 weeks and two days post-op for me. I've been through two stalls already, but I am sticking to the program. I want long-term success from all of the sacrifice and pain. You all know I mean!

      Okay so, as of yesterday my insurance company contacted me direction to say, that I was approved and have completed all the required items on the "To Do List". so, I should be getting my appointment next week for meeting with the Anesthesiologist. I'm very excited/nervous, but extremely happy too.

      Tomorrow will be 7 weeks since surgery. Yesterday i found that I was able to finally drink more than a sip at a time. I am SO grateful! I have always loved drinking water and it has been my primary beverage for most of my life; losing the ability to drink a lot of it was my first post-surgical regret. Being able to drink more than a tiny sip at a time makes me feel so much more normal.
      I'm eating around 500-700 calories a day, and have hit my second stall. I have begun to only weigh myself once a week. I've made to the gym twice since surgery, but I've been walking my pup and walking at work up to 3 miles a day on average.
      I've also been using resistance bands and stretching. I'm not quite ready for twisty yoga stuff yet. Or jogging. I did do a 10+ mile bicycle ride last weekend with a friend to a coffee shop where I had a cold decaf coffee with half and half. That was another activity that made me feel kinda normal.
      I'm still drinking one protein drink a day, trying to hit my goal of at least 60 grams a day. Today I got 72 in thanks to a cold G Zero with 10 grams.
      My abdomen is still a bit sore in general. The way I understand it, the inside is not fully healed until 3 months after surgery. That means sometime around November 1st. This is when I will go on the forever way of eating according to my provider's plan. I look forward to that day.
      Oh! And I should mention that I learned about a chain restaurant that is in about 30 or so states. It is called Clean Eatz, and they have a menu that is friendly to we bariatric patients. My support group last night talked about getting pizza and flatbreads from there. I checked it out and it looks like it's both eat-in and takeaway. This is the first place I'm going when I feel ready to eat out again

      Does anyone know, how long it takes for Medicare to approve surgery?
      · 3 replies

        I think it depends entirely on what guidelines you're being referred under. I had that kind of insurance through the state as a low-income person for 10 years and even though I was over 400 lb for 10 years they denied me. All based on the fact that I did not have diabetes. I switched insurances once I was offered a different kind of coverage from work and was approved within two months

        Medicare or Medicaid?

        They both have a serious of hoops to jump through before you can meet the surgeon. After you meet the requirements and as long as you do not run into any gatekeepers, the surgery will be okayed by your insurance pretty quickly after the surgeon clears you. One other consideration is when the clinic will actually schedule you for surgery THAT can take awhile depending on how backed up they are.
