You need to really work towards getting a minimum of 60g of Protein if you can Sam. I know it's hard early on but it's vital.

Yes eating slow is hard my dietician wants Me to stop shakes but I don't think I can make the 60 without my one shake made with total Greek yogurt each day. Other than that he really happy with my progress. The next 4 weeks are going to be a challenge. Festive meals and treats every where only safe place is our house. So glad I have the bypass as this will keep sugary treats at arms length : ) keep in touch guys

I do, I love it. I used it on and off before having the surgery too and feels it really does keep me accountable.

Greek yogurt (best is Total Farge 0% which you can get in Tescos) There are lots of Greek ones but watch the carbs!

Cottage cheese, eggs, Milk (highish in carbs though, until in mantenance)

Ground beef, turkey, chicken and fish, salmon, halibut shrimps, sardines, light tuna in Water ... Pork is high in Protein too. ( I had fillet of pork with a tiny bit of apple sauce, sprouts, cauliflower and a couple of asparagus for dinner tonight # yum)

The Protein powder can be added to coffee (decaf!) and Soups but don't add it when the drink/soup is hot or it will curdle. I also love my Protein latte which I have every morning at work.

Check out www.myprotein.com - and www.discountsuppliments.com

I order a lot through myprotein.com.

I find it difficult still to eat my food slowly. Years of gobbling it down and looking for more takes time to stop doing! I still find getting enough Protein is a problem too but I have at last found a Protein Bar that I can manage to eat.

I also track my food with my fitness pal and I wear a fit bit too and both of these things keep me aware of what I am doing and eating. Even my other half has lost a bit of weight - he is slim so does not need to really, but we have little junk food in the house and what there is I am not bothered about eg crisps ice cream biscuits and chocolate. I have been very happy with my weight loss and just love to see the scales showing a smaller weight and also the clothes size going down. Good luck to us all anyone in Wales ?

Have managed so far. Just exploring food to see what my sleeve likes and doesn't like. Was lucky I went over to someone's house for turkey dinner so no leftovers to contend with and no snacks!!! How have you managed?

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
