Caffeine is a diuretic, meaning it will dehydrate you. A dehydrated body will not handle surgery as well.

Hi all. New to all of this. My surgery is July 8. My husband had his surgery May 8. I am anxious but excited. Watching my hubby's success has been inspirational. Thanks to each of you for sharing your experiences.

Oh, I see. Even if I'm guzzling the Water all day and peeing like crazy? Well I guess it's bye bye coffee.< /p>

I talked to my surgical nurse about it a few days ago. She told me that while ideally it would be recommended to switch to Decaf, a cup or two of caffeinated coffee or a glass of iced tea is fine as long as you also drink plenty of Water as well. Your bariatric team may feel differently.

I asked this question yesterday in my pre-op class. They told me that besides being a diuretic, caffeine could also cause ulcers on our new, smaller stomachs. My doc does allow Decaf (even though decaf still has a little caffeine).

Help... Sorry y'all but I'm panicked a little.. I started my 2 week liquid diet I was 340 when I started and I've been eating "drinking" only what is on my list and I did start exercising, well I decided to weigh today and I've gained weight?!?! I'm at 352.. That's 12 lbs!! How could this have happened? I'm keeping my calories 1000 or less.. Please let me know if this has happened to anyone and how did you take care of it.. My sleeve date is July 13. I did start my liquid diet early.

I don't have a reason why you gained but try to restrict yourself to two Protein Shakes a say one for Breakfast one for lunch and a low carb dinner of veggies and Protein only you still have time before your surgery date to lose the 12lbs. And If you have to snack, snack on low carb Snacks like hummus and cucumbers or beef Jerky. Hope this helps

Call your dietician or if you don't have a regular dietician or nutritionist you could try your surgeon's office. I'm betting they can give you an idea of what's going on and what to try.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Hate thinking about foods I used to love... Burgers & wings. Gotta stay focused. 😤

        nothing tastes better than thin feels.....

        There is nothing wrong with burgers and wings...it's only the amount that is the issue. Why not have a burger but take away the bun? You dont need to eat the entire burger. My favorite is using the sous vide to cook them and then giving them a little color in the frying pan. It's all protein anyhow.

        As for the wings, why not try making wings at home? By making your own sauce you can cut down on the empty calories.

        By giving up foods, you can also cause issues, mental ones. The idea is to not eat all of it, but to enjoy a little portion. That's why we have the stomach changes to begin with. But in all takes things slowly and see what your stomach allows.
