Nov 2013 Sleevers Progress So Far...



Recommended Posts

Would love to know typical daily meals and Snacks everyone is eating

I eat a lot of fish, salmon, tilapia, mackerel... I love it! I also like lean cuts of red meat. Ground lean turkey is also really good. I also buy the Atkins frozen dinners although I can not eat a whole one, I eat all of the meat first and what I can get in of the veggies I try. But for work this is something quick and easy to grab. Low sodium all natural lunch meats and reduced fat cheese. I am not a big Breakfast person so I usually just have a shake in the am. Snacks are atkins Protein Bars, cottage cheese (I flavor it with seasoning salt, or olives/pickles/chili powder, or just cut up some tomatoes and mix them in. sugar free popsicles are also big with me.

Hope this helps! Keep up the great job!

Hi everyone,

I was sleeved on 11/21/13 by Dr Katz in Southfield MI.

Before preop diet 253

SW 242

CW 203.8

I was .8 shy of 50 lbs lost on my 3 month weight in :/. I will have it next week thou and hopefully be real close to being under 200 lbs! I can tolerate most foods as long as they are moist. And have had no complications I started feeling pretty good once all the bruising went away. I have more energy and my knees are so much better. I am losing 2-2.5 lbs a week.

I wish more people were in this tread with their diet info and such. Congrats to all my fellow Nov 2013 sleevers!

This is a great topic! I have recently switched my diet to eliminate most dairy, other than cottage cheese. I eat a ton of Beans, especially lentils. I adapted a recipe from Arabia's Sausage Lentil Soup (ground turkey in place OS sausage, more spinach and tomatoes, less Water so its not soupy). I eat it every day. Very filling and great for regularity. I also eat eggs everyday, scrambled with onion, green pepper, smoked ham and black beans. I add salsa Verde and guacamole or fresh avocado when I eat. In all honesty, I cook eggs once every 3 or 4 days and then just eat leftovers the other days!

This s basically the same diet I used pre op, but I started to get sloppy in the lot few weeks and slowed down my loss. Cheese became my nemesis, so I had to say good bye for now. I still do 3 Protein Shakes per day, which continue to enjoy. Atkins Cafe Carmel, anyone? :-)

Had my 3 month and am super pleased with my results.

Start weight 7/13 390

surg wt 11/13 371

3mon 305

I've been in the gym 5 days a week and where most people lose muscle after surgery, I gained 11lbs of muscle since surgery.

Does anyone else have their muscle gain or loss?

Issues I've been experiencing feeling tired, fatigue and exhausted. I eat all my water/ meals/proteins/vitamins and average 600 to 900 calories daily, try to eat more to get energy levels up, helps some days.

Try drinking a different Protein Shake. I had ordered lean body ready to drink Protein Shakes and for some reason they made me feel like I was going to die from exhaustion. I thought it was my surgery causing it. I drank them for a few weeks before figuring it out. Now I drink nectur and ISO pure with no issue.

Hey Everyone! I am doing well. Today is my 3 month "Sexy-ME" anniversary! I'm excited. Weighted in today at 210.8 lbs. That has me down about 65 lobs now. I am struggling with these last 10. I really want to be under 200 lbs. I am 20 yrs old and i promised myself a reward when i get under 200. So excited now.

This was a great decision. I ran on the treadmill for the first time in probably 5 years. It was only 2 minutes and then back to walking but i was able to do it multiple times without weezing, getting light-headed or feeling uncomfortable at the gym.

My only issue now is that my ab muscle are really weak even this far after surgery. Any ab exercises make me sore for days and even when i try my hardest i can only do a few. maybe 10 sit-ups. Does anyone have tips for how they have worked on these muscles? Thanks

And Congrats everyone for making a great health & life decision!

1 Get the 200 situps app. It starts you off with a fitness test and then gives you a timed workout which will build up your endurance. It build the workout on your progress.

2 Drink a post workout Protein Shake and add glutamine in it. Glutamine is an essential amino acid when it comes to healing muscles. you can pick this up at any health food store as a powder or pill form. I use the powder and can't even tell it's in my shake.< /p>

3 Don't do abs every day. Your muscles hurt because they are ripping and growing. Give your workout your all then take atleast 2 days before working out that muscle again. After a month or so you can kick it up to every other day.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
