@@Salonboi same to you. I'm glad that you are doing well. Have you been able to tolerate different foods?

My experience has been super smooth ???? at every new stage, I progressed exactly as I was supposed to, tolerated everything I tried. I of course followed every rule to the letter, I used my Eat Slower app and chewed every bite 20-30 times and no drinks 30 mins before, during or after ???? I've had chicken give me trouble one time, but it was after many times of eating it with no issues. My partner put a little to much spice on it, hence the dumping. And my advice to you is, as soon as you feel that I'm full feeling, or a heaviness in stomach, no matter what, don't eat another bite. No matter how far into your meal you are in STOP EATING. It will make you throw up. Trust me ???? and some days I get more in than others. And yes I've wasted food, but hey I'm buying way less at store than before. Any other questions please ask ????

That's great to know. I'm two weeks out today. Everything that I had this far has been smooth. I am now starting my soft diet today. Any suggestions on foods? Do you snack? If so what types of snack? Do you eat candy? Do you drink soda?

Cottage cheese low fat of course was a great choice! I ate ricotta cheese bake, which you can find on Pinterest. It's basically ricotta cheese and spaghetti sauce mixed together and cooked in microwave or in oven. It's like the insides of lasagna but no noodles of course. It was the best thing is ever eaten, after being liquid only lol... I don't snack, because guess what, I'm not even hungry lol. I have to set timers on my phone to remind me to drink my premier Protein shake when at work, so I don't get sick feeling.... You seriously won't feel hungry at all for snacking!!! But everyone is different!!!

I definitely don't eat candy or drink soda. I chew sugar free trident gum when I'm working on my clients hair!! I don't wanna have dragon breath because of being in Ketosis. I quit soda 3 yrs ago, it was giving me horrible heartburn.

My main go to soft food was low fat cheese sticks and lunch meat roll ups. You really just have to find what your taste buds can tolerate. Everything changed taste wise so much. But at this point I'm finding it's going back to normal. But things will taste so different for sure. I also did greek yogurt with a spoonful of PB2 mixed in and it was so good.

It's so yummy and way less calories and fat than regular peanut butter

Hi, I have a consultation with Dr. Gersin in August. I feel like I've heard good things, but it takes forever to get in with this practice. If anyone would like to share their experience or any tips, please feel free :)

He is great you'll love him. He was my surgeon. He is also the chief of the bariatrics department. He answers any questions that you may have. He does what's in the best interest for you and your health. I'm two weeks out and from my pre-op weight I have lost 31lbs so far. He will also make sure that you understand everything prior to surgery. He's great. I have no complaints with him. The nurse is always there if you have any questions.

Thank you SO much for your help! I have been leaning toward the sleeve, but haven't ruled bypass out. Don't think the band is for me, though. Which did you have?

No problem at all that's what we are hear for to help everyone out. I'm still new to the weight loss journey so I need help as well sometimes. I had the bypass done.
