Has anyone actually done a reset, if so, why did you do it and has it worked?

You are a sleeve about a year out? (looked up your past posts) I’m guessing your asking about pouch reset because of a regain?

For some pouch reset works to reboot and get back on plan again. Some find it too restrictive. Another option is simply going back to real food stage basics. Activity/exercise, hydrate diet plan. Log your food, stay within your weight loss calories and macros (Calorie and macro range may have to be dialed in specifically to where your body loses weight) Years out its not realistic for me to eat 800-900 calories.

It’s a common experience to have less sleeve restriction years out.(it’s not back to full size) There are strategies to ty to fill the space and help with hunger. (make sure examples are on your plan)

Get rid of temptation in your house

Log your food in a food app.*keep within your weight loss calories and macros*

Dense Protein sources will keep you feeling more satisfied than soft foods. – Get rid of shakes and bars.(use only as emergency food) Real whole food will keep hunger at bay.

Eat your protein and other items on your plan. Eat as much wonderful low-calorie veggies until full.

Real sugar and extra carbs make you crave them more and cause hunger*detox off them*

If you deprive cravings you want them more – Keep healthy options for sweet and salty on hand EXAMPLES Salty: chicken fajitas, Jerky Sweet: Dannon light n fit Greek yogurt, strawberries dipped in Sugar Free Chocolate, sugar free popsicles.

No I'm still losing but my oldest son is 2 years out and he had gained about 5lbs and was asking about reset

I honestly don't think a 5 lb gain should require a reset, as long as he is sticking to his meal plan and any exercise routine he may be doing. Almost all of us will fluctuate up and down a few pounds (mostly in Water weight). Changes in the weather, daily routine, exercise routine, life stresses, age......all of these and more can have an effect on our bodies. As long as he has not slid back to some old habits then I would simply suggest an extra 10-15 minutes during exercise for a week or two. Maybe change up his exercise routine a bit if he does the same thing day after day. On the subject of exercise....if he is hitting the gym hard and heavy, it is quite possible that the gain is from added muscle.....if that is the case, I wouldn't worry about it. If you/he has one of the scales that measures fat, water, muscle, bone, etc...has he been tracking all of that? I would recommend doing so if not, then you'll have a better idea of where the weight was gained.
