From time to time newer members dig up old threads. I notice getting notifications from older posts as well.

There are some never ending debates after all. ;)

I should have clarified my google feed dug up these types of stories for me 😂😂😂😂

Ooo! I hope so, if you find some let me know! I'll keep a look out too

Hi Leia

It is easy to make your own non carbonated kombucha. If you are in Houston PM me and I will be happy to give you a "kombucha mother". What gives kombucha its fizz is the second fermentation. Just like with soda if you leave it open it will lose its fizz.

Kombucha on friend!

Ya got to face it, your damned if you do and damned if you don't..

The " experts " will tall you one thing, then another thing a few months later.. to be honest, I dont think anyone really knows about them..

Plus, you have to be careful of the studies themselves.. need to see who is funding them.. the sugar growers will always try to tell you how bad the artificial sweeteners are and the sweetener people will say how bad sugar is.

Uurg, well that kinda kills my dependence on Premier Protein shakes. They have been the only reason I'm getting to or close to my Protein goals so far. :(

I dont like how sweet they are anyway, but its so hard to find shakes that don't have artificial sweeteners.

On the other hand, I have IBS, and chronic inflammation...and if getting completely off this stuff would help clear that up, I've got to try.

Isopure has a natural line of powders that use cane sugar--and a surprisingly small amount per serving. 25g of Protein and 3g sugar. Mixed into Water or skim milk it 1000x better than a premade shake--no thickness or off taste (other than one would expect from whey isolate).

yes I do but they have been dormant in the fridge. I would be happy to share them with you. My kefir grains are for kefir Water (think champagne not yogurt).

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
