Low Carb/Fasting 14 yrs post op?



Recommended Posts

I had DS in 2014 and have been lazy these past few years, with the scale slowly climbing to a good 20-30lbs over what has been my "normal" weight for most of my post-op time. So many of my colleagues are doing Keto or eating low-carb and seeing such amazing weight loss results (and other benefits). Has anyone tried dieting like this or have any insight. Google results are 99% RNY so I'm unsure. Also, I've taken up intermittent fasting as a tactic. The 16/8 plan where I fast for 16 hours, and have an 8 hour eating window.

I'd appreciate any insight from the veterans out there!

There is a group of us doing Intermittent Fasting with really good results.

@erinlyle if you had the traditional DS, I don't really know anyone who fasts. What we do is eat. More Protein and more liquid. I agree with lowering the carbs. That will definitely help with the weight loss. But having the DS was a way to stay away from things like fasting and dieting. Also, you need to keep the protein going for energy and to keep your gastric system eliminating waste.
