Hi everyone! I'm heading into week 2 and just had my stitches out. I see a lot of folks talk about a 'stall' in weight loss. How can we stall when we are eating 300 to 500 calories per day? I've searched the internet trying to find the scientific reason but I haven't found anything. I've always been told by docs that calories in VS calories out is what drives weight loss. At our calorie intake we should drop weight consistently. I just want to understand how we 'stall'.

I think our bodies are in "starvation" mode. Taking in so few calories that are bodies are holding on to what we have. That is definitely true for me. As much as I feel like I'm eating (drinking really) all day, I'm only averaging 500 to 600 calories per day. The week after surgery (3/11) it was even less than that. The month before surgery I was only eating 1000 calories per day. I think once we get closer to taking in more regular foods the body will shift into lose mode.

Haven't tried the Soups yet. Felt a bit nauseous on my second yogurt try though. Had to stop after two bites.

I had surgery on Wednesday and I’m home recovering. Parts of this have been much easier than expected and parts are super dang hard. For example, sleeping lol. I am getting plenty of fluids down and able to get my meds down. I even got one Protein Shake down today. I recommend not getting the vanilla shakes. They’re so darn sweet.

When I was sleeved I experienced dumping by eating cream of mushroom Soup. I was in a restaurant and it was terrible. I tried eating Tomato Soup the other day and experienced nausea..no more cream Soups for me.

I tried having fish for dinner with wilted spinach and I think I ate too quickly and didn’t chew or the fish wasn’t fresh enough and I puked 🤢

Had my surgery on the 28th. All went well and had 2 nights in hospital. At home resting now and working on getting liquids in. So far so good. Bit low on energy but guessing that's to be expected.

Late to this group but I had mine on March 23rd. I’m having issues getting my Protein in because I’m so done with the taste and smell of whey isolate. Anyone have this issue? I just have 4 days left on my liquids before I move to purée. I just want to jump right into purée!

I’m having issues with all my shakes. I can’t deal with the sweet flavors anymore. The only thing I’m enjoying right now is broth or Water. The shakes and even the crystal light make me so nauseous now ughhh! Didn’t think trying to get liquids in would be so hard even though I know this diet would be difficult haha

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
