my banana flavored Protein Drink, Protein pudding like 3 spoonfuls. church when I came home it was vegetarian Soup. I had been so busy the day before that I went down for a nap, 4 hours later.................... hubby had make chicken stir fried veggies/pastas. My throat was still hurting from the night before (I think the smoke from casino didn't help) so I pretty much just chewed the flavor out the food and then spit it out. evening dessert is applesauce.

My weight less has stalled :( so I'm trying new things/ways of eating. My doctor tells me at every appointment, no Protein Shakes, no Protein Bars, no liquid calories what so ever....however, looking at alot of what people are logging, they are having great success including the shakes and bars. So needless to say, I'm very confused at this point. I'm also told that I might not be getting in enough calories per day and putting my body into metabolic shutdown. Has anyone else experienced this??

Im, not sure where you are in your journey but I go through periods, where I stall. I'm basically losing and gaining the same 3-5 pounds, for, several Weeks and, then bam, I start going down again. Keep it up and,I think it will eventually fall off.

Hi there. Your doctor is right, it is better to eat protein than to drink it. I know a lot of people have trouble with their band being tighter in the mornings, so a Protein Shake is a good way for them to protein in. If I have a protein shake, it's usually first thing in the morning simply because I am not a big Breakfast eater. Some people also have a lot of trouble eating meat, so that's probably why they choose to eat protein bars. I sometimes have a Protein Bar as a snack.

How many calories are you consuming on a daily basis? Are you exercising? The best advice I can give you is to shake things up a bit. If you are not eating enough calories, try bumping it up for while and try changing up your workout routine. Sometimes all you need is a little change to get those numbers going down again.

Plateaus are pretty common, so don't stress over it too much. It may take some tweaking, but it will pass. Best of luck to you!

Missy0224 - where do you get the Snackwells Protein bars? I looked on the Nabisco Snackwells website and I saw Cereal bars but not protien bars. Where do you buy them?

I get them at Walmart. I guess they are technically considered "cereal bars" but they do have 8 grams of protein.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
