You won't lose weight screaming fast like keto...but you will lose weight safely and steadily and not feel hungry or deprived.

And have better breath. Lol

Yeah, I never got that thing about how bad breath and BO is supposed to make you lose weight faster ("that's the smell of burning fat!" no, that's the smell of not eating your vegetables.) I get the ketones thing, but I always tested postive for ketones in the lab tests while I was losing (duh - I was using up my stored fat) but I always had a (reasonably) healthy balance in my diet and never agonized over carb counts. I was still having to slow my loss rate at six months without the help of fad diets.

@Losebig - Wendy’s has fab bean and mince chilli. I love it occasionally because my wife is vegetarian. I buy a big one, and freeze it in 1/2 cup portions. The Wendy’s website gives nutritional breakdown - I don’t have it regularly (I love cooking these days) but it is a great occasional treat - where I really feel like I am treating myself!

(Sometimes I add Sriracha, or sliced jalapeños or chilli flakes, before freezing!)

Kids' meals are always a good option, too. I can eat an entire kids' cheeseburger from Wendy's with no problem. Can't do more than a few fries, if any, though.

I basically have been doing a high Protein low carb diet. I am a week shy of 3 months post-op. I had a few sips of wine for the first time while meeting another member from here not too long ago. I have only eaten out maybe twice. Socializing is hard for me.

Did you eat the bun?

I didn’t.

I think @Creekimp13 did.

Already answered that. LOL. Yes, I did. My diet allows 75 naughty "sweets" calories per day. I used them on the white bun. (and yes, know it's junk...not a typical choice for me, I always do whole grain buns at home).

My diet is not carb restricted. I eat a ton of carbs. But I do not typically eat white breads, refined stuff or more than 75 calories worth of sugary stuff per day.

I have a great Nutritionist...
She taught me a good healthy diet format. I do it by servings....Daily 5 Protein, 4 Veg, 4 starch, 3 fruit, 2 Dairy and 2 Fat ......i List everything I eat ina chart form...
Bk. 1/2 cup special K = 1 (3 Carbs)
1 cup milk = 1 (1 Dairy)
1/2 banana = 1 (1 Fruit)
lunch 1 cup salad. 1 (3 Veg)
5 crackers. 1 (2 carbs)
2 oz turkey 2 (3 protein)

Each number in parentheses tells me how many more servings I have for the day....keeps me on track for 1000 calories a day

nice choice ck13 :)

For me, finding healthy ways to eat out with family/friends at times is a good thing and part of our lifestyle .I'm glad I can tolerate the food, eat a lot less and only sip Water until food arrives and don't feel deprived. I take my Breakfast and lunch to work every day and we cook a healthy dinner most days (really my husband mostly cooks for us lol)...I don't always make the best choices but I am doing so most of the time and I'm good with that. My surgeon also suggests more of a balanced type diet vs diets that severely limit all carbs as it's probably not sustainable for most of us long term. I also don't feel well on diets that cut food groups especially now that my broken foot is healed and im back in the gym 6 days a week...

However, I do understand others being more vigilant with things being a slippery slope for them. I will never allow myself soda again. It was my biggest indulgence and even though I would give it up for a year or months at a time, I always went back to that addiction and it's just horrible for me, with no redeeming qualities at all. Most days I don't miss it but on a day where I'll be on a plane and straight water is tough to drink for me, I would love a soda but won't do it...too addicting. I now mainly drink heavily watered down G2 when not in the gym drinking water (after my morning coffee).

I hate french fries now! To me they taste awful.

      I'm going to hit my stall now. I can tell, because 1) almost everybody stalls when they start moving on to real foods, in addition to the liquids, and 2) I'm at 302 pounds, lol, and the scale knows I want to see the 2 in the first digit.
      I'm fine. It's not going to freak me out or really even upset me. Honestly, I could stand the reconfiguration of inches that always comes with a stall, for me.
      I'm posting here in between bites of refried beans, which (knock on wood) seem to be going pretty well for me, so far. I'm so happy. Between ricotta (with a little sauce and a little seasoning) and refried beans (with a very small amount of low-fat cheese melted in), I can live without chewable foods for a pretty long time. (I'm also eating yogurt and ricotta cheese.) I do want to upgrade to the ricotta bake, because it has better protein and might cut down the number of protein shakes I need in a day. It's probably a bit more firm than ricotta alone, so I held off at first, but I think it's time, don't you? Plus, my spouse can put it over pasta and enjoy it with me.
      I'm eating 2.5 ounces of ricotta in a serving and maybe that much in beans? (this is my first attempt, but that's how much I served myself) I can eat 4 ounces of Greek yogurt in half an hour, which feels like a lot before the 2 week anniversary of my surgery. But I still haven't really figured out my body's "full" signal. I felt a little sick and stopped eating, one time, which made me think I'd overdone it. Other times, I just take tiny bites, sometimes a few minutes apart, for half an hour. And then I refrigerate or throw out what's left, because that was the guidance the nutritionists gave me. But other people talk about a sore shoulder or something as their signal, and I haven't found that yet.
      I guess it'll come with time and practice.

        Prediction: ACCURATE! I was up .2 this morning. Here's hoping my thighs are smaller after this stall, so I can finally wear smaller pants. (The waists of pants that "fit" are too loose, but the thighs are still tight. And belts are uncomfortable on my incisions.)

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        Don't talk yourself into a stall. They're common, but not everyone has them early on. I honestly haven't had one yet. I've only had 3 "up" weeks in almost 8 months and none of them was from a stall. (One was from vacation, two were recovering from losing 13 lbs in 10 days because I was prescribed too much diuretic and ended up dehydrated in the er ☹️) You're unique, just let it go.

        It is early for you to recognize a "full" signal. Pretty much all the foods you're eating right now are sliders that just pass through your pouch. Other than the refried beans, most of them won't stay long enough to trigger a "fullness" feeling. Don't worry, it will come. You're doing great!

      3. CrankyMagpie

        If it's a stall, it's only in comparison to the ridiculous speed with which I lost during immediate pre- and post-op. I'm still down like half a pound from when I posted this. (Half a pound in four days is slow for this stage of the journey, but it's still good!)

        Thanks for the reassurance! It's good to be told I'm doing well. ❤️

      4. Orchids&Dragons

        Yeah, we love that non-linear weight loss when we have a 4-pound week. Not so much with a 1/2-pound week. I only weigh twice a week (and only write it down on Saturday) in an attempt to keep the insecurity monster at bay 😉

      211!!! Randomly super excited to have read that on the scale this morning! It almost doesn't feel real!

      Haven't hit a stall but this week with only a 2 lbs loss after hitting the gym for 5 days is really getting to me.

        I had a stall for 2 weeks, lost a couple pounds, then started the gym and now I'm stalled again!

      2. GreenTealael

        Think of your gym time not for weightloss but as preplastic surgery. I promise the more you work out (whether you lose fat or gain muscle through it) the better your skin tone, tightness and elasticity will look in the long run... (Learning that now, too late after taking a break from the gym during a recent very active losing phase, I HAVE TO GO BACK)...

        YOU'RE DOING GREAT!!!

    • GreenTealael

      Alright. No more adulting. Burned my nose, broke my espresso maker (officially), stubbed my toe, and cracked my phone screen all before 8am.
      Going back to bed.

        I'd definitely be done for the day! Back under the covers and Netflix for sure!

        At least you didn't break your nose and burn your espresso maker.
