Hello ,I recently ad gastric sleeve in Mexico on April 18 th and so far so good. I have lost 27 pounds. But lately I'm at a stall. I don't have a nutritionist to talk to so I was wondering what are/was others eating at this stage. I feel like all I eat is refried Beans, eggs, fish,and cottage cheese. Any good recipes? I'm also drinking protien shakes but I hate the taste. Any recomendations would be very appreciated.

Hey Brandy! It sounds like youre doing great. I wouldn't worry about stalls this early out. Almost everyone hits them at this stage and its a normal part of your body just trying to figure things out. So no need to change up what youre eating. Ricotta bake is a great option if youre craving pizza! Check out Pinterest for recipes.

Brandy I had my sleeve on April 19 and I've lost the same as you. I hit a stall during week 2 and I havent moved from there. It's been 2 weeks and I was feeling confused myself. I'm on the same boat myself. Hopefully we get it moving soon.

Hey Brandy, I've been having refried Beans, cheese cubes, nuts, Protein Shakes, fruit smoothies with no sugar added and added scoops of unflavored Protein. I've been doing a lot of chicken veggie Soup. The moist chicken seems to go down best.

      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
