I used to drink nothing but plain Water all the time prior to surgery or even thinking about surgery. I was pretty good about it and most days got up to about a gallon a day. Since the surgery I'm doing nothing but water with flavor packets and one cup of Decaf every day.

I'm not sure if this is a side effect of my surgery about 7 weeks ago or the fact that I started using flavoring packets after surgery and haven't gone back and now I ruined it for myself.

Any thoughts on this subject?

TIA

I don't like drinking Water anymore, either, unless I"m at a restaurant. I drink Crystal Light, Bai water, and those 5-calorie diet cranberry and cranberry-combo "juices", mostly. I think in my case it was the surgery, too, since I used to drink water like crazy, even at home.

Pre-surgery i drank (cold) Water all the time. After surgery it just didn't do it for me, so I played around with the temperature and found that I could drink just as much water as before if it was HOT. Now, almost 7 months later, I like it ice cold again, even more so when I add sliced cucumbers to my water bottle, which makes me drink even more.

Your tastes will change, keep trying different things often.

I liked regular Water a lot more before surgery too, and I used to prefer it cold. Now it hurts my stomach if it's too cold, and I have to add some kind of flavor mix a lot of the time.

Same here - I LOVED plain Water. Only drink zero water now - lemon or orange.

More common than they admit. To me, plain Water tastes bitter, and Heaven help you if you present me with liquids at room temperature, reminds me of being caught in a shower of #1, and that's not a Happy Place to me.

Oh, I should have added that I drink coffee too.

Crystal Light, Mio, 15 cal Minute Maid lemonade, green Decaf tea, decaf Constant Comment Tea and some herbal. Oh yeah, also propel liquid strawberry Kiwi. But Water unless chilled- Yucky Poo!

Your taste buds will change a lot so don't be alarmed. Right now, I'm addicted to Wild strawberry Crystal Light.

I only drink plain Water when I eat out at restaurants because I'm not supposed to be drinking while eating anyway. At home I drink flavored sugar-free Crystal Light in water.

      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
