Diet Soda after VSG



Recommended Posts

Hi-

I had my sleeve in July 2018. I lost 40 pounds within 3 months and then have been stalled for a while. I started drinking diet soda again around that time. I am exercising and I do not think I am eating too much. Could the stall be linked to diet soda? I started at 240, I am now at 200. I am 5 feet 7, so I am trying to get to at least 180. Any thoughts?

Do you log your food? You need to know if you are hitting your calorie and macro goals.

How many calories are you eating these days? I think I am usually around 1000-1200. I will try to get off it. I know it is no good for me. I have been trying to track food as well. That also fell off, so tracking should help identify some issues. Thanks.

Are you using baritastic or myfitnesspal as a log?

@TomC

i don''t think so.' most docs say not to drink soda, but i don't think it effects

weight loss or gain. Just not good for you. Slapping your hand telling you to

stop! LOL

"we" all hate the word stall, but unfortunately its highlighted in the Bariatric Dictionary

you are doing great with your weight loss - i think you are at a basic horrible stall that happens

to all us. Three (3) months+ is a long time, but i've seen others that have stalled longer!!

horrible, horrible - this too shall pass.

Agree with OP, you should always track your food, drink etc.

PATIENCE (easier said then done)

good luck

I am using Baritastic, and you are all right. I need to get more consistent with this logging of my food intake.

Guys Room, ladies.

I started drinking pop again and probably never should have. I drink much less than I used to, but now I drink the regular stuff because I figure it's not as bad for me now (which probably isn't accurate).

This made me LOL

On a side note I am 4 years post and drink Coke Zero now and then. I still have to pour it over ice to kill off some of the carbonation.

I will drink about 8 oz of soda a day at most, but try to stay clear. I swear Jarritos/Mexican Squirt/etc. have higher carbonation and make me feel worse, though.

Also, I can drink beer without any issues. A lot of beer. Though I haven't tried chugging, funneling, or shotgunning since my surgery.
