You may want to try to do a sleeve cleanse. Do some research on it and try that before going back under the knife. Age plays a BIG factor in weight gain, try and stay away from those empty calories and high carb foods. Good luck.

Just go back to your pre-op diet for 2 weeks and start the entire process over. You can also do a shortened version, such as the 5 day pouch test.

In case you didn't have a pre-op diet, here's mine:

Week 1

Breakfast - Protein shake

lunch - Protein Shake

dinner - unbreaded, lean meat on a bed of greens

All the broth, Water, unsweetened beverages, sugar-free Jello and sugar-free popsicles you want

Week 2

Breakfast - Protein Shake

lunch - Protein shake

dinner - protein shake

All the broth, Water, unsweetened beverages, sugar-free Jello and sugar-free popscles you want

After these 2 weeks gradually return to solid food but make sure the emphasis is on protein and non-starchy vegetables.

As i said in the other thread, you know exactly what you're doing wrong which almost makes it worse that you're still choosing to do it after having gone through this whole process many years ago.

#1) Night shift is terrible for your body,try and get off of it.

#2) Stop filling up on Snacks, especially at night. Worst time to eat empty calories.

Examine what it is in your life that is causing you to make these poor choices.

I'm going to offer different advice.

If you are going to snack, snack on Protein. Protein Bars (they make chocolate), Quest Protein chips, Pork rinds, Jerky, etc.

Most of us need to eat lots of "meals" to get our protein in. You just need to make sure that you are eating things that work with you, no against you. Get protein replacements for your favorite Snacks.

Going on a liquid diet that far out from surgery is going to be useless. You will be starving. If you feel you need to do something drastic to break bad habits, then eat dense protein. Steak, pork chops, chicken breasts, ONLY. Just dense protein. You will feel your restriction and be satisfied for a long time with dense protein.

Also Track all of your food and weigh it. I have a portable scale I use at work.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
