Whats causing you to gain? Have you let bad habits back in? Are you still eating dense Protein first? Not drinking with meals? Avoiding alcohol and other calorie filled drinks? What's your carb intake? Do you measure portions? Track what you eat? Exercise?

Personally I don't think that going back to liquids will help if you do it for x amount if days without adjusting the other habits in your diet that aren't WLS focused. If you feel you need a kick start, it'll work, but if you return to the same habits that are causing you to gain, it will be for naught.

I'm drinking beer so I'm guessing that's the problem

Some people like to restart with liquid phase as a kind of "reset". Personally I can't hack it. :)

Either way, you need to go back to what worked before. For most that means tracking...adhering to Protein, carb, calorie, Water targets etc. Weigh weekly. Increase activity. Don't expect fast results but it will work. Once you are back to goal, set up a self monitoring by weighing weekly, set yourself a small "bounce range" and take action if you go over your range.

I was also sleeved in 2011, and even with the sleeve, maintaining requires diligence and I guess that will never change. I am encouraged because pre sleeve it wasn't possible, but now, I can get back on track and the sleeve is still there to help me.

Beer by itself will not cause the problem but everything you put in your mouth added up does.

One must choose to cut back on food or beer & we all know what is better for us.

Your question about going back to scratch, I don't know.

Looking for an easy way to achieve what you did in 2011 is not the best option.

Self control is helpful so start adjusting stuff as one would need to do when trying to lose weight without surgery.

It will always work, when motivated & thinking clearly.

Besides the calories and carbs in the beer, it is well documented that people eat more when they have consumed alcohol. It lowers inhibitions.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
