What Is Your Beverage of Choice?

For me warm Water with bullion cubes went down well. I couldn't tolerate sweet very well after all the shakes. I added unflavored Protein as well.

Thanks for these great ideas and tips! Your advice can definitely help out other WLS patients who are struggling to get in their Fluid intake or who just need a change!

Thanks for pointing out the value of trying fluids at different temperatures – sometimes room temperature drinks are easiest to get down, while ice Water can work for some patients, and Hot Drinks and broth present a welcome change!

With all of these ideas, I think there is a great take-home message: keep trying, because there has to be something you can tolerate well enough to hit your Fluid recommendations! Keep them coming!

I also LOVE my coffee. Favorite is a venti hot dark roast from Starbucks....5 Splenda and cream.

Your NUT allows caffeine? I've been off the stuff since March.

My NUT doesn't allow much in life but a breath of fresh air.

My surgeon was cool with my coffee.< /p>

Water, coffee, tea, Water, tea, water, oh and more water...

occasionally I slip up and steal a like 1/12th of a cup from work of pepsi... mostly for the flavor since I swirl it around until no carbonation. In no way am I encouraging this btw... just admitting it.

but mostly... water... tea... and coffee, oh and more water... which reminds me I need to get someone to change the water jug thingy to put on a new one.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
