So I forgot to look at the whole label



Recommended Posts

I had my first experience with dumping syndrome after trying a Greek Yogurt drink. I just looked at the Protein and not the sugar content. Whoops! It's pretty unpleasant and a good lesson to learn. Thankfully, I was at home. This would've been embarrassing in a public restroom.

Dang! So sorry about this. :( The food lessons are just so huge aren't they? Hope you're feeling better?

Yeah, it wasn't prolonged. The dumping syndrome hit quickly and went quickly.

My NUT told me to keep the carbs under 20 grams, but to do yogurt with ZERO added sugar. There may be sugar from the fruit, but I always keep an eye out and keep my sugar intake under 7 grams per serving for whatever I am eating.

For us it is 7 grams in anything not dairy simply because dairy has naturally occurring sugars

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.
