Just curious of any long timers that do Ketigenic diets. My nutritionists says they do not recommend it for bariatric patients. I am curious if anyone does the Keto lifestyle and if it works. I am 3 1/2 years post Gastric Sleeve and need to lose more weight. Any thoughts?

I have considered it but haven't tried it yet. I also have more to lose.

Did your NUT say WHY? I think my NUT also doesn't recommend it but I don't know why for her either. Other than she just keeps saying you can eat anything you want, just in moderation. Which makes me crazy. lol

No she really say but I think after doing the same things for this amount of time and not reaching goal I am going to try it and see what happens.

L.OL I was thinking the same thing.

So, what does this mean for you? What will you eat and what will you not eat? I haven't gotten that far yet to figure that out. The eating anything in moderation isn't working for me at all.

True Keto is very high fat (like >70 grams), moderate carb (30-45 grams) and very low carb (<20) a day. I am 4 years out and have been Keto for a while. My surgeon and docs are all for it, I used this to conquer some regain and also to resolve a health issue.

It is quite different from a 'bariatric' diet. I don't drink milk or eat yogurt anymore, I follow the rules of keto, I eat my macros calculated out for me. They change as my weight goes down. I also incorporate Intermittent Fasting which also has made a huge difference. I will probably eat this way forever. There are tons of resources out there, especially on youtube and there are substitutes for EVERYTHING, but I try to stick to a very basic food list.

Thank you for the input. I started it yesterday so I hope it gets the rest of my weight off. The only thing that surprised me was the amount of calories my macro says to eat, but I'm gonna give it a shot.

Why no yogurt? But whipping cream is fine. Aren't they based on the same thing?

I am having re-gain and really need help. Am thinking of trying this but not sure how to go about it. Not sure what to eat and why or what not to eat. Can you sort of outline a typical week or several days worth of menus? That would be awesome.

So far it's going good. Tested this morning and I am in the small Ketosis range so I'm getting there.

Hi I joined a Bariatric Keto group on fb and you can pay for a session and it costs 19.99 and they give you your macros and give alot of info. I have been doing it for two weeks and am losing again.

I am 18 months post op and am about 20 lbs away from my goal. I like where I'm at but would love to lose the last 20 lbs. I am seriously considering doing keto but am curious what that looks like over the course of a day.

Current keto eaters: Can you list what your meals and Snacks are in a typical day? Also do any of you do intermittent fasting along with it?

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.
