Wondering about stretching your pouch?

While I know that I haven't stretched my pouch, I find myself craving chocolate often... Anyone have any suggestions for stopping or circumventing these cravings?

Same! I was never a chocolate craver before surgery!

I went through a chocolate craving for a while. I bought some 60% cacao chips and put them in the freezer. In the evening I would eat about a tablespoon of them WITH some almonds to add some Protein. It was a nice little treat. Don't need it now. I also have chocolate Protein Drinks for a quick Meal Replacement in a pinch.

I also love adding 1tbsp of cocoa powder (Hershey's Extra Dark) with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon to hot decaff coffee in the evenings. Feels like you're sinning for no extra sugar or artificial sweetener. :) Great polyphenols, a hit of magnesium, fiber, and serious satisfaction for very very few cals. Add some canned whipped cream for about 10 cals and <1g of carb to feel even more decadent!

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

      ok, I know it proves me as weird as some of you always thought but this was a fun site to kill time on.

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
