I will be getting my surgery in January/February 2014. Insurance requires 6 months of dieting. What kind of diet have ya all been successful with. I am type 2 diabetic and is newly diagnosed with it in April this year. The diabetic diet just isn't working for me. Any suggestions would be great. Thank you

I have the 6 month supervised diet also. It depends on your wgt at the initial visit and what ur insurance and surgeon requires. If your BMI is high some may require you to lose a certain amount of percentage of your wgt. My BMI I right on the line so I have not actually had to lose any wgt. Just maintain my wgt and learn new healthy habits. Had visits with my Surgeons PA every month and his Nutritionist. If you use your PCP for this they will monitor your wgt and BMI for the 6 months and make notes in your chart on your diet and exercise. The main thing is find out exactly what your insurance requires. If you actually have to do a diet mine suggested 1400 cals low carbs/high Protein. Eat Protein and fruits and veggies. Healthy carbs only. They want you to stop all Soda's and calorie filled beverages. Increase Water and sugar free drinks. Learn to eat slowly. Increase daily activity. Begin a Multivitamin and Calcium. Those were my instructions.

Thanks, i'll update the list.

kind just sent me a free sample last week so thats weird. maybe they stopped giving free samples out for now?

Also protos gave free samples to my hospital so I figured they would send them out to people as well. GNC also carries them if you want to try them. Wasn't a fan of elk a ostrich but the turkey is good.

Thanks for the feedback. This is what I need to keep the list up to date.

Celebrate sent me that letter then sent samples anyway. I suggest emailing all of these companies. You may get samples anyway.

Quest has a limit on samples. They will get more in.

GNC has a promotion going on where you buy 3 quest bars you get 1 free. If you buy some and don't like them GNC will take them back.

They are my favorite Protein bar and recommend them.

This is good to know. Unfortunately, I don't live near a GNC and the only buying option I see on their website is whole boxes.

You can buy single bars on quests website. You can also buy a mixed box that comes with one of each of there flavors. This is what I did after I was recommend them by my nutritionist.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)
