When you're feeling up to it, I have a crispy snack I love. It's not high Protein, but it is low cal, and feels decadent (to me!)

4 - 34 Degree Crackers

1 - Wedge Laughing Cow cheese

Total - 57 calories (3g protein)

Thank you! I hadn't heard about 34 Degree Crackers. I'll have to check them out ;)

I get them at Walmart. They are in the produce/service deli section, above the "specialty" cheese. They are also on WalMart.com, and I'm sure they're many other places as well!

I make roasted Chick Peas and they are delicious. If you want a crunch, this is it! Here's a link on different ways to spice them!

Sounds great, but...

How much do you eat?

1/2 cup has 6 Protein and 27 carbs. I just got a sheet from Dr. to keep daily carbs at 50.

I usually eat about a 1/2 cup or so. Its a very Fiber rich food. 12 grams per cup, if I recall correctly. It's something I eat as a treat when I'm craving the occasional crunch. I keep track of my carbs, but I'm not on any limit. I usually keep mine under 50 as well. I count this as one of my veggie servings for the day. Nearly all of my carbs come from non starchy vegetables, so if I do happen to have a higher day... I don't worry about it. It's not like processed sugar, Pasta, bread, or even fruit.

I'm afraid to try almonds yet. My pouch is so small (according to what I can eat) that I'm afraid it's still pretty swollen. I've heard that nuts are one of the more difficult foods to process. But, I'll keep that in mind for later. Is there a brand of cheese crisps that you like?

Whisps cheese Snacks are great! I buy mine at Walmart, in the produce department by the salsa. They come in 3 flavors. One serving is 13g of Protein.< br>

I'll have to decide if Jerky is worth a 25 mile trip! That's the closest Trader Joe's. But jerky is a good idea, at least once I can tolerate meat.

25 miles is rough! Maybe you can find some other jerky? The only thing is other ones I've looked at have 80 or so calories per oz.

You can't tolerate meat, that's a bummer. You're only 2 weeks behind me, post op!

I did manage to eat 1/4 (maybe) of a chicken leg the other night. We cooked it wrapped in foil so that it stayed extra moist. And, of course, I cut it into about 10 pieces! If there's any hint of stringiness, it just gets stuck in my stomach for hours. So Jerky is definitely on my back burner for now. (But I do love it!)

Oh yeah, in that case definitely hold off on jerky!

Rotisserie chicken might be an option for you, as its quite soft. Do you eat fish? Lots of good options there.

I poached some tilapia the other night and was able to eat about an ounce and a half. My husband turned my leftovers into a fish taco. I might be able to eat a bit of rotisserie chicken, thanks for the suggestion!

      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".
