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 struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

      3. CrankyMagpie

        Losing a pet is terrible, and it's OK to be sad. ❤️

        Taking care of yourself is also OK--better than OK!--and if you're offering to cook, that means your sister doesn't have to cook or stress, which is kind of what she was after, anyway? So you don't need to feel bad about this.

        I can definitely imagine going to a buffet again, even though I don't eat much, but we're talking, like $10 Indian lunch buffet, not $65 (holy crap) Thanksgiving buffet! And I'll probably always favor non-buffets, since not eating part of my meal immediately just means I get to enjoy it later on (or my spouse does). It feels like less pressure, or something.

        Anyway, I'm babbling. I think you're doing the right thing, here. I hope your sister is cool about it.

      4. Swanton_Bomb

        I am slowly, s-l-o-w-l-y, learning in my old age that you don't always have to do everything for everyone else and that it is ok to take care of your own needs first. $260 is a lot to spend for a family of 4 to eat without any leftovers, especially when one person can barely eat anything. Maybe next year you can do the buffet, or maybe your sister and her family can go out to a buffet, and you and your kids can have dinner, and then everyone meets up later for board games and football or something. Focus on some fun post-meal activities. I'm skipping Thanksgiving this year because I am on liquids, which means my mom won't attend either (her choice, she doesn't want to go without me). She is ok with that, but I feel guilty about ruining her holiday. I made my peace with it because I realized that skipping this one Thanksgiving to have surgery earlier this month means that I will hopefully be healthier, live longer and have more Thanksgivings in my future.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
