Pork rinds??? I can honestly say I never would have thought of that! I always thought of them as junk food because of the high fat content. Have you found them to be a quality source of Protein?

I've included a picture of the nutritional facts of Pork rinds & the link to the Parmesan crips nutritional facts. Considering you can't eat much its not too bad for either....in my opinion.....

These are a bit expensive, but they're really good and low carb:

I have found Parmesan cheese crisps. They are delicious, crunchy and made totally of cheese. They are 80 cal, 6 grams of Protein in 1 serving (3 good sized crackers. I love them with tuna salad. I think they sell them at whole foods but I buy them online. They are made by "kitchen table bakers", I think is the name

Found these same Parmesan crisps on netrition.com for $4.99 a bag! There's a $4.95 flat shipping rate, which is worth it if you buy anything else off the website.

No issues eating pork rinds here but I had a cast Iron stomach before surgery & apparently a mini version now. I haven't thrown up once or been Nauseous at all through this whole ordeal. We also use Romain lettuce or collard green leaves to put taco meat, chicken salads, basically replacing tortillas. Pork rinds are $1.25 a bag at your local grocery store or gas station vs $4.95 + shipping for the Parmesan crisps.

Hubby and I did an experiment with a cracker and a pc of melba ttoast (toast is on. My soft food diet, crackers r specificallt not allowed) we put them inn a glass of Water and waited a coupe hrs. The cracker was about 3x the size while the melba toast didn't change at all.

That's all it took to convince me not to eat crackers. And melba toast is actually tasty. I use them to dip into my egg yolks, crumble in chili, and put tuna salad on

I tried a different recipe a few weeks ago. It was a bake in the oven type recipe. My attempt was a total flop. I followed the directions closely. However, my outcome was crisps, it was little piles of hot watery, greasy liquid :-(

I buy them from netrition. Just got in 6 containers of them. Their shelf life is like a year from now. As far as lactose issues, I cannot drink any milk based shakes anymore. But I don't seem to have a problem with these or other cheese

At the preop class i went to the NUT stated that we could have saltines on the pureed stage but only like 1 broken into smaller peices as a vehical but she stated very emphatically that there must be more tuna or chicken than cracker. She just said that sometimes people like the crunch and by this point are in need of some. But with always the reminder... Protein first.

I found the parmesan cheese crisps by Kitchen Table Bakers at Wal-Mart in the deli foods section. Before that I had been buying some very expensive ones out of town at Whole Foods.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
