Trim Healthy Mama diet



Recommended Posts

I have been following the thm diet. I am hoping to find other bandsters following it. There are many fb groups but I cannot find one specifically for wls. Just looking to share encouragement & ideas.

Mothering9 I have the book. A friend gave it to me for my birthday. I have not been able to follow the diet, for several reasons.

1. It is not practical to my everyday life. I am on the go a lot and I can't seem to find what I should eat when I am out

2. All that fat freaks me out ;)

3. I have two kiddos with special diets and this way of eating kind of stresses me out. Makes me feel like I have one more meal to make at night.

I am not saying that it is not a good eating plan just hard for me to follow. I did read the book before my WLS. Can you give me examples of what you eat on THM? I think that is another thing for me that is difficult......figuring out what I can eat.

Hi Mothering9. I see that we were both banded last April! I have an unbanded friend who loves THM. I have started slowly making my food changes and am copying her recipes and pinterest until my book comes. I was wondering how other bandsters were doing with it.

It's good, because you have to eat every few hours..I sometimes feel full and forget to eat for long periods during the day and then am famished and make bad food choices! I love how it's Protein & healthy fats positive. The carbs that you do eat are healthy. There are yummy shakes that include Protein powder! Also, we are told to avoid the sweeter/starchier fruits..which is something that I needed to do (banana addict!).. My first 60 lbs have come off pretty quick and easily, but has started slowing down. Hoping this will get the scale moving again and help keep my energy levels up enough to work out more! Please let me know if you jump into this and how you're doing. I hope to be fully jumped into this in a week or so. Still buying/replacing items in my pantry :)

Oh, i've joined the thm for beginners on fb and it's so supportive and helpful with advice, tips & recipes. Also www.gwensnest.com is great! ive heard that there will soon be a surgical weight loss THM on fb

I am just curious if you are still following THM and how you are making out on it. I am very interested in trying it, just wanted to get more perspective!

I Hve been wanting to do thm, just curious how others are doing on it? I used to eat paleo a few years back, but new to being banded. Paleo was not a good option for everyone in the family. So want to go this route instead

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
