Sleeve with Diet Pills?



Recommended Posts

Before my surgery I used to take Garcinia Cambogia for weight loss and I loved it because I could see results pretty quick on top of my dieting without any horrible side effects (jitters, diarrhea, nausea, etc).

I got my sleeve which was the best decision I’ve ever made. But I’ve been on these plateaus and I have ten more pounds that I can’t seem to get off no matter what i do. I’ve been toying with the idea of getting back on GC to see if it would help me shed these last ten pounds. But I don’t know what the precautions are for taking dietary supplements on top of the sleeve?

Has anyone tried to take dietary supplements with their sleeve?

I wouldn’t suggest diet pills because they mess up your metabolism. Try increasing your Water intake. Increase the intensity of your workouts or adding an additional 30 minutes to your workout. Are you eating enough? Sometimes you may need to agh 50 calories on workout days.

My hubby had the SLEEVE almost 2 years ago. He does take GC. But I don't really think it is a good thing. Like was said up ur exercise, watch and write everything you eat and drink. You might need to up your Protein if you aren't getting enough. shake things up to try to get your WL going!! Take care and keep us posted on your journey.

My experience with diet pills was not good. I ordered some online at this site as was feeling fed up, they were Chinese type ones, and I really had no idea what was in them. They made me feel ill, irritable and generally unwell.

My doc has been known to put patients on phentermine after surgery to get through plateaus.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
