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.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
