you are spending so much time trying to be right that you are totally ignoring common sense here. First off there is no such thing as reversing diabetes that is a total myth. My main point all along is you have had a procedure done that causes most of the people to have key nutritional defiance's just do to the absorbance factors alone. What sort of logic would make you think that depriving your body of these key nutrients like Calcium for example, which will already be low is a good idea. just take one moment and ask yourself. If your body is already not absorbing all the nutrients it needs, which leads to health problem, what part of fasting and making less of a supply in a system that already has an abortion issue makes sense.

Are you kidding me? Everything I eat or at least 90% of it, is because of the health benefits it will give to my body. I have done my research on diet and I will do my research on intermittent fasting. I will share what a I have learned so others can benefit. Anyone reading this thread can then decide for themselves if this is something they might want to incorporate into their healthy lifestyle.

You still haven’t proven your points with any data to back up why this type of eating is harmful. I have been very respectful to you even though you have been rude and downright mean in your responses. I am not going to respond to your posts anymore because it is a waste of my time.

You are speaking of yourself here. Just do us all a favor and post your scientific sources and we’ll make the decisions based on our own research for what’s good for OUR own bodies.

Or I’d rather you just leave this thread....thanks in advance for doing so.

My interpretation of Waler's concern is the same as my own (earlier). We hear "fasting", and we think "not eating". If you aren't eating, you won't get your nutrients.

But, Apple explained that it was still eating the same amount, just concentrated within a specific timeframe.

I can't have a problem with that, since meeting daily goals is my mantra. 8 hours is enough time for peeps to get 4 good meals in, which will work for those 6+ months postop.

Any reduced consumption days need to wait until 18+ months postop.

Fasting and carbs....for most people, yes, they hear fasting and think you’re not eating. Sure there are those types of fasts as well. Same thing with carbs, people think they’re all bad, but fail to realize how good complex ones are for us. So, it’s really all about being ignorant (not a put down) of the facts or just not informed. Once informed, then you can have the realization and hopefully openness that will change your way of thinking for the better. But if you’re not open kind of person, you’ll be staunch in your ways.

Yes, as I explained this is the plan. Waler still disagrees and that is fine we all have our own opinions, but science backs up IF and more research is happening on this subject as well as the gut micro flora.

I find both subjects very interesting.

Without realizing it and this is probably true for many of us with WLS, I just counted the hours since I last ate and broke my fast. Last ate right before 7:30 yesterday and then I didn’t eat until about 10:30 this morning. That’s 15 hours of fasting. This way most everyday is intermittent fasting unintentionally for me. Doc tells me to not eat unless hungry anyway....

oh and doing this without WLS, it’s hard in the beginning. I just about died the first few days fasting 16:8. But like anything else, you get used to it. I’ve had great success, but my mind wasn’t where it needed to be to stay focused on my health long term then.

I posted about this a couple pages back. I said how most of us are doing this without even really realizing it, and it somehow becomes dangerous when we decide to do it on purpose??

No that doesn’t make any sense to me :blink:

Did you mean "nutritional deficiencies" perhaps?

Did you, perchance, mean to say, "absorption issue"?

Ok, so I have been eating on a schedule for the last 3 days. I eat from 12:00pm -8:00pm and fast for the other 16 hours. This has been super easy and my fasting BS have dropped 10 points down to 78-82 from 92-98 prior to starting.

I haven't noticed anything different that would make me want to stop. I drink my coffee and my diet green tea or Water and just eat normally once 12:00 comes around. I definitely think the tendency to snack after dinner is not from hunger, but more from habit because I have thought to grab something while watching tv and then said no your not doing that anymore. When I really thought about it I wasn't hungry at all.

I realized I have unintentionally been "fasting" daily. I'm generally eating between 1400 - 2200.

I'm a night bird so I go to bed late and get up late. I like to exercise right after I get up (otherwise it doesn't happen!) and don't like to eat before I do so. That makes my first meal sometime after 2 PM. I'm not much of a morning eater (hey, it's morning SOMEWHERE, right?), I usually have a Protein Shake. I then drink Protein Water diluted by half with water until we have dinner about 7 or 8 PM. That's when I have my solid foods.

I'm losing weight, my labs look good, and I don't have too much loose skin. I really appreciate all the research and discussion posted in this thread.

I just today, Monday 6th November @ 6am, received news of the latest T.E.D. TALK ... and it has great connection to the last two weeks discussion in this thread.

THE SURPRISINGLY CHARMING SCIENCE OF YOUR GUT from May 2017 by Dr Guila Enders is well worth your attention.

The spell/blurb says: Ever wonder how we poop? Learn about the gut -- the system where digestion (and a whole lot more) happens -- as doctor and author Giulia Enders takes us inside the complex, fascinating science behind it, including its connection to mental health. It turns out, looking closer at something we might shy away from can leave us feeling more fearless and appreciative of ourselves.

There's a lively ongoing commentary/discussion too.

She calls the gut: "Our Most Under-rated Organ".

The 14-minute video can be found here:

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
