At this stage of the process I would be listening to what they say and not trying to second guess them.

Not second guessing anyone. I also have a hernia and can't deal with dense, heavy Fiber type foods without pain and gas. I bloat up like a blimp when I eat grains. This is no different than a vegan or a vegetarian. I've been on a specific diet for a long time and I want them to know about it.

I've worked with some amazing, knowledgeable dieticians. The ones I worked with for weight loss were quoting 20 year old research and were useless. But they were an Insurance requirement so I nodded and smiled and did what was right for me.

Maybe you'll get a good one?

All I really had was a Water goal and a Protein goal. Everything else was up to me. If I didnโ€™t eat something I just asked for alternatives. I def think you are overthinking it.

Yeah, most likely LOL I tend to do that :P I texted back and forth with the girl last Friday afternoon. She seems really cool. They gave me a 53 page pdf about "Eating to succeed with Weight Loss after Bariatric Surgery". Apparently we discuss this packet over the course of the next 5 months. Each of the dietician visits are 1hr 15min video chats. The first visit is today so I guess I'll see how it goes.

UPDATE: Yep, I was definitely overthinking things :blush:

The dietician was so nice and very helpful. We talked for a good hour and a half and the best part is, she's down with keto! She said her main focus right now is to get me prepared for life after surgery like working on weaning off caffeine and mindful eating. Also, these dietician visits are free and unlimited even after surgery which is flippin' great! My mind is at ease now :)

And Kimmie K, would you believe it? Even with my TPN, where I am on a liquid IV diet, I have my own special dietician? Her name is Kelly, we talk at a minimum, once a week, and she is very very nice and a great resource person.

Thatโ€™s awesome โค๏ธ my dieticianโ€™s full-time job is working with folks that have had major complications after WLS. Sheโ€™s definitely a diamond in the rough. Very sweet, helpful and knowledgeable. Even though we only meet once a month we actually email and text frequently. She told me I have unlimited coverage for our visits pre-op and post-op with my new insurance which Iโ€™m so thankful for BUT I told her to brace herself because Iโ€™m a question-asking machine. She may want to kill me before my 6 months are over! LOLOLOL

You'll stick to low fat if you don't want to risk dumping or gallstones. Your new tummy isn't made to handle fats like it was before.

Keto was very successful for me pre-op last year. But low fat, low carb is the new life. Your body and metabolism will completely change post-op. Give it a chance.

Thatโ€™s good to hear. Itโ€™s taken so much work to change my mindset from โ€œeat all the thingsโ€ to keto. If all I need to do is dial back my fat, I should be good.
