So you think the bars and shakes are causing the stall? I def don’t want to waste this precious time either I will take all advice and try it to see if it break this stall! I’m desperate 😜first meal today was eggs and turkey bacon and lunch and dinner will be Protein as well. I’ll check back in a week and keep ya posted. Thanks again for your advice! I know I could be drinking more Water as well I’m also going to work harder at this.

I just don't know? The only way to know is to cut em out for a few days and see? ((hugs)) Don't be afraid of leafy greens and low glycemic veggies like broccoli and cauliflower and asparagus!! Eat salads with very low cal dressing. Eat a little avocado. :) How much are you eating per meal? Quantity (volume in a measuring cup).

Right now I still get full off of 2.5oz of chicken or beef (always grilled no fat or sauce added) so if I eat veggies it’s usually between meals. An example of a “snack” would be 4 raw broccoli bite size pieces dipped I 1 T of hummus OR 1/2 a large pickle. I’ve done so well since I had my sleeve and it’s so scary bc really this is my first “stall” I’ve had. It’s like my body doesn’t want to get into the 160s at all despite eating the same foods I’ve always eaten 😒

I swear it's gonna happen!! Your meals sound great!! But I would maybe only do TRE (time restricted eating, as long as you make sure you can get enough meals in!!!). Like a 16:8...

Your stall will break. You are doing so great!!!

Also you are doing WONDERFULLY!!!!! It's ok to take a week off. Just keep flexing and building your fasting muscle hon!!!

Aw, many thanks! But I think an 8 day binge takes away all brownie points 😋

didnt make my 48 hours. Ate after 20 and turned it into an OMAD day (redundancies...). 23 hours in today. Hopefully I make it to 36. Being a bit smarter about my BP this time around and taking 50 calories of solid non carby food with my BP pills to avoid me having to quit because of spikes. That rules out autophagy but it’s better than not fasting.

The resetters always seem so complicated!! I don’t know if I have the discipline and focus for it with my schedule. But I will take a look. Btw, don’t know if this is Keto/IF related but my period stopped. I am 37 so while possible, I doubt it’s menopause. I am sure to get an earful if I bring fasting up with the obgyn.

And the damage done by an 8 day binge....10 pounds😖😖😖 my body sucks. Scientifically that means I consumed 35,000 calories in 8 days (which I didn’t even come close to). Ah, the wondrously broken biochemistry of the formally obese....

Still here and still observing and learning.
I’m now >3 months post-surgery so not quite ready to jump on the IF train just yet


Question: when did most of y’all feel like you were far enough out from surgery to start IF?
My sleeve is usually so tight in the morning that I’m basically doing 14:10 or 15:9 every day because about the only thing besides Water I can take in before 11am is coffee with a couple ounces milk.

Once midday to early evening hits, I can hold about 1-1.25 cups of food in my sleeve before the pain hits

I didn’t start IF until month 11. I gained 8 pounds in March from eating off plan. I was able to take it off plus three with IF & EF.

Its a good thing to have in the arsenal but not this early out in the battle plan. I still have issues getting in my nutrients on IF.

I'm planning on completing a couple extended fasts soon: Water fasts and dry fast

Likely towards the end of the month but I'll keep y'all posted

Hello everybody! I am very new to this fasting, doing it for 9 days now, it helps me be more aware of what I eat (if I eat all day there is space for crap eating too :p if I have to eat my Proteins within a given window I have to chose what I eat more carefully!) I try to do low carbs high fat at this time and it is working wonders so far. Overall I am happy with my decision to start this.
I had my surgery in October, I am 7 months out. I was logging all my foods now religiously (could not bother before because they were wider spread :p)
Well that’s all for now, will be lurking around here too from now on :)

Yay! Welcome and glad you're here and beginning to develop a "forever" plan!!! Wooohooo. I swear by logging, but others do not feel a similar need. :) That's ok! If it helps you, then that's a keeper tool for you! Be sure to browse each page cuz there are awesome vids attached to many of them, and very deep info givin' by many pros in our group! We are all happily either losing or maintaining with IF and our own disciplined plans!

How tall are you? I see your goal is 110. That should make you around 5'1" perhaps?

That is my first goal, it is in kilos no pounds, so it is a big goal, it is about 240 pounds. I am 5’7” (1,70m)
I think my ultimate goal will be anything between 180-220 I will be happy with anything over that range :p although everybody keeps saying that the more you lose the more you wanna keep losing! At the moment I won’t mind being chubby as long as I am healthy. (I started at 452 so all these numbers seem tiny to me atm hehe )

      this one is a bit of a slog to get thru but it is important to see the differences they are trying to define.

      Dinner tonight was: a dessert plate (cuz it's small) topped w/ dark leafy greens, refried beans & stewed shredded chicken. Pretty good.

      This is great, but having difficulty changing where it says under my moniker & next to my profile picture, "Pre Op" to ---> "Post Op".  I'm new, but had my Gastric Bypass procedure 06 February 2018. Halp! lol  Also, how do I post Before & current "After/ Work In Progress" photos?  Do I post it/ them in this status box? Any assistance appreciated. Thanks a bunch in advance. Toodles!

      Day 2 of pureed food diet, 15 day post Sx. I'm eating lunch (leftover taco ground beef mixed with 2% cottage cheese) and wondering "Am I full? Am I full? How will I know I am full?" I've prepared about a 1/2 cup total and eaten about a half of that. Then I get the familiar pressure behind my sternum, like a burp is just sitting there wanting to come up. I hiccup a couple times and gas bubbles up from my belly. There's no feeling of fullness in my stomach, its all in my chest. I guess this is full for me? I am just learning what full feels like. For the new me, fullness isn't leaning back from the table with my hands on my belly wanting to unbutton my jeans. Fullness is a feeling low in my chest that the food has stopped going down. Air is trying to escape to make room. It's the feeling of really needing to burp. Still learning.

        I get a heavy feeling in my chest and can't burp, then the hiccups come and they are loud and obnoxious
