so freaking hungry



Recommended Posts

Folks. I know I come here and post every couple of days about my cravings, but I don't know what else to do. I feel like I'm going to buy a slice of pizza, take a bite and toss the rest when I'm out walking my dog.

I'm legit hungry all the time and there's no way I'm going to successfully resist temptation by just gritting my teeth. It's been constant. No relief from hunger at all. Today's day 12.

Also, when i eat cottage cheese or yogurt or some other tide me over fat free soft treat, my weight loss either stalls or goes up the next day. Called my nutritionist about it last Friday, she told me to drink one fewer Protein Shake a day so i show good numbers at my first weigh in.

Frigging losing it.

Yay!!!! So glad your NUT had some answers for you and unfortunately some people never lose the hunger sensation. Eat as close to plan as you can for the best outcome and safe journey!

Have you thought about a pizza "replacement" - bear with me. Maybe take pizza sauce and some low fat cheese, along with (very soft) vegetables and bake them? It would not be the same thing as you won't have crust, but you'll have everything else.

I posted a recipe a few days ago that I find a great replacement for pizza and other Pasta dishes. It has Ricotta, Parmesan Cheese, Mozzarella, marinara, one egg, and a few spices. You eat it with a spoon, but I look forward to it every day. If you break it down into the servings, then each one is right around 150 calories, about the same as a Protein Drink.

I was really missing my staples probably around where you're at, but now I seem to be fine without them. I can't explain it other than I suppose I wrapped my head around it finally.

When I got to soft foods I made this:

Just be careful of the toppings :)

Sounds good! Could you post another link, please? I tried to find it in your previous posts, but was unsuccessful.

Thanks!

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
