Pouch Reset /Pouch Test



Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m looking into trying the pouch reset/pouch test as I have put on weight (5yrs post op) and feel I’m going backwards. I know some people don’t believe it works but I’m going to give it go. Does anyone have any advise or tips they can offer?

Hi,

I would suggest that before you pouch reset, pantry reset. If the foods that snuck in your diet and wrecked it are still around, you'll probably continue to eat them after you reset, making it an exercise in futility.

I'm new but I used to reset every month to reevaluate my choices and abandon things I didn't need.

Drink A LOT of Water and fluids (64+ oz) to kick it off and go back to basics as much as possible.

e.g. leafy vegetable and lean Protein only meals, no eating and drinking, don't drink things with cals, lower carb intake, no sugars for a while (fruit also), salads with minimal dressing, distinct meal times, no grazing/snacking

Good luck & welcome back
